Fluff Piece!!!!


We have the talent that can become a title-worthy defense. Burns, Davis, Shazier, Dupree, Hayward, Tuitt, Hargraves are all plenty talented. But they havent shown that they are talented as a unit to get it done.


We have the talent to win a title. We had it last year.

What we dont have is the coaching to beat New England. We play them the same way...EVERY...SINGLE....TIME.... The one time we played them a bit different in 2011....we won...go figure.

Granted, I do think we are lacking in certain areas talent-wise that would make it hard to beat New England even with good coaching (most notably in the secondary), if they would stop playing the ultra conservative, soft-zone garbage....at least we might stand a chance, as opposed to Brady and Belichick bending us over and going in dry.

The sad thing is, we have defensive line talent that could create an interior pass rush and force Brady out of his comfort zone. But no, lets just keep doing the same thing over and over....its bound to work at some point....ya know....probably after Brady and Belichick retire. Confused


exactly.

this is why I almost want to drive down to the FO and punt some sense into the ones that require such. Tired of retarded coaching.

It feels like the mid-Manning-Colts years.

This defense is built to maybe get a turn over or two. It's not built to completely stopping the opposing offense. Their whole purpose is to give the offense one or two short fields a game, other wise it's goal is to not completely blow the game.

Throwing another team comparison out there, Greatest Show on Turf. Great offense, opportunistic defense.



Another team I have been comparing us to is the Brees led saints on their title run. we dont have the shut you down unit on defense, but it creates turnovers at some very opportune times. IF we can give Ben 2 or 3 more chances than the other team because of this I like our chances against most everyone.
