    Every year during the holidays I eat too much, drink too much (not in that order) and watch some of the 3 Games to Glory DVDs.

    This year I watched the 2003 season, focusing specifically on the LBs. I was trying to get a read for the type of player the Patriots would look for to replace Seau and Bruschi.

    The front seven in 2003 was so fundamentally strong, every tackle was made, every gap was filled. Nothing flashy but man did they ever make you work.

    The 2007 defense may be even more talented and certainly is deeper but all year the tackling has been poor. Some of it is caused by a lack of speed, the ILBs have to fight and claw to gain leverage and are sometimes a step behind forcing them to take swipes at ball carriers, other times it is just pure fundamentals, not wrapping up, etc.

    With this offense there is not as much pressure on the defense but they still have to make the basic plays. Personally I was a little disappointed that they allowed 28 points, they had a real chance at being the top offense and defense.

    I expect tackling to be a point of emphasis for the remainder of the season.

    Yeah I'm looking forward to the 19 games to Perfection DVD box set. That should be awesome! But before that, our boys have got to win the Super Bowl first. Let's get it done Pats!!

    I mentioned this back in October. If they do run the table I fully believe that NFL Films will try and do a 19 Games to Glory. If Bob Kraft has anything to do with the planning, I bet you will see this come about.

    Generally every tackle is made in a highlight tape.

    I beg to differ, John, at least regarding the LBs. In 2003, our LBs consisted of: Vrabel, Bruschi, TJ and Willie Mac, with TBC, Chatham and Phifer as subs, and Izzo and Don Davis as STers. Junior and AT have replaced TJ and Willie, but nobody has replaced the subs. This needs to change, beginning with the first round of the 2008 draft.

    When have we ever drafted a LB high, let alone the first round? BB likes to bring in vets to play LB and maybe take a chance in the later rounds

    I loaded up 3G2GII on the iPod Touch this morning. I've been sitting at my desk watching the AFCCG from that season. Man do I love playoff football.

    Our linebackers were better then, especially with the loss of Rosey. Man could we use him for these next 3 games.
