In response to Bunker Spreckels' comment:
What is the site?
I just have a hard time putting more accountability on a D that keeps the opponent from putting up points all game long while our multi million dollar offense fidgets with its collective nuts all game, giving the opponent more and more of a sniff, putting MORE pressure on our D as a result.
If you're going to be ultra picky with the D, please at least be honest about an offense that isn't fluid and completely blew many chances to score any kind of points in the second half JUST like the SB.
This is not a random coincidence, but a pattern. When the offense is very good in a 20-14 kind of a game, with a run game, clock management, field position, no turnovers, etc, and the D blows it, then I'll agree.
Until then, go to the source in an offensive era that Goodell has created.
If you want to criticize the offense I'll join you. A running game that withers against every good D it comes across and just cannot produce yards in the endgame drives of close ones is a problem. And an O-line that doesn't show up in a SB or allows sacks at the crucial endgame drive in all 3 losses this year is one too. And receivers dropping key passes is another.
Nobody has claimed Brady is perfection. But at the end of these debacles he is usually the only one doing ANYTHING good. CERTAINLY the D isn't.
