The Pats need a lockdown CB, period. The pass D is not good enough to win a championship and has been this teams Achilles heal for years. Other teams know it too. Bend dont break is a load of hogwash. Look at a few of the games where NE lost or hung on for dear life because of it: (1) 2006 AFCC vs the Colts. The Pats were way up and Peyton Manning has his way in the 2nd half. The Pats would have killed the Bears for ring #4. (2) The 2007 SB and 2007 season for that matter. How many times did Brady have to come back in a game during 2007 to score more points because the pass defense called in sick that day? (3) 2010 AFCD vs Jets. Mark Sanchez actually looked like a QB. (4) 2011 AFCC vs Ravens. Flacco drove down with ease at the end. (5) 2012 SB. Eli Manning MVP and he wasnt chosen because he was handing the ball off. If they do not go out and acquire a better CB through the draft or FA, its going to Groundhog Day for the foreseeable future. Watching the Pats have the lead only to sit there and witness other good QBs pick their passing defense apart like a plate of nachos.
