    From Tedy's interview:

    Once again Tedy proves why he's so missed.

    I was critical of TB and Welker for using the media to make a point and embarassing teammates. I'm still not a fan of it, but if Bru thinks it make help, I'm all for it!

    God, I miss the guy. Personalities like his, Harrison, McGuinest, Vrabel...That leadership is what this team is missing so badly.

    Wasn't this why Seau was brought in? Leadership ... especially sideline leadership?

    Why is the read level on Bruschi's breakdowns always low? I'd think a lot of posters here would be reading it and commenting on it since he's a favorite ex-player.

    Not to mention pretty accurate on his assessment.

    Truth. He not only knows football but he knows the Pats, it doesn't get much better than that. Bru's on a must-read list for me :)

    This was one of Bru's best columns so far. He sees winning as an Attitude thing, rather than just X's and O's, and that really leaps off the page in his writing.

    But he does have some specific things to say about strategy and execution, also. He was obviously not crazy about the decision to go for it on 4th and 1 this past week, and though I'm a solid supporter of BB's controversial call at Indy, I agree that this was the place to take the 3.

    Still, if the coach makes that call, the offense -must- convert it. From X's and O's back to Attitude again.

    He also agrees with many posters here that Wilhite and Butler are getting targeted by teams, and it's hurting the Pats. He doesn't have a specific solution, other than for those two to step up their game - hopefully there's some strategies that can help out there as well.

    Nothing specifically about the pass rush (unless I missed it). Maybe it just didn't make his top 5 list of things to worry about :)

    Butler was off WRs in the first half, but if you watched the second half, he knocked down 5 straight passes thrown his way before letting Camarillo grab a 1st down.

    Well admittedly since 2007 there has been an exodus of veteran leadership from the Patriots has it not. I know the lack of pass rush and failure of veterans brought in has been problematic, but we all know the exhuberance of youth is something that can never replace the cagey battle hardened veteran.

    Well said Teddy.

    Attitude is by far the biggest problem with this team. Sunday should be considered a huge opportunity to get things right. go out, execute well on both sides and walk away with the w.

    This guy is a huge loss in the locker room.
