    Deltha O'Neal is a revised version of the 2005 Duane Starks era in NE - I think we can all agree with this

    Too many holes to fill. The Pats would have to gut their 2009 draft

    for temporary fixes.

    O'Neal had a bad game last night, that's for sure. So did Meriweather, Bruschi, Thomas, Koppen, and just about everybody else. In the last few years the defense was able to get pressure on the opposing QB. That caused the QB to throw before the receivers were open, which allowed the secondary to make plays. That's not happening this year; it's not strictly O'Neal's fault, but is a chain reaction due to the entire defense not playing well. I'm not sure if it's primarily an execution or a scheme/game plan problem, but the bottom line is that cutting O'Neal isn't going to change anything right now. Besides, what does it say about the quality of the other CBs that can't beat him out for the starting job?

    F it, it's time to seriously consider bringing back Ty Law. I don't care how old he is or what the money he wants... if we have the space to squeeze him in do it.

    I can't believe how much you all ***** and complain. He has had a pretty good year so far and his coverage on the catches wasn't bad....just a matter of height.

    Or help. I mean, he didn't have any safety help (that I could see on the TV screen) on those plays.

    What game were you watching? O'Neal was beat on the snap. When the reciever makes his break and takes the inside position on a corner, he is automatically beaten. It doesn't matter if the corner is with the reciever stride by stride because the reciever has sheilded him off and the corner has little or no chance of breaking up the ball. O'Neal will be picked on all season long and he will eventually get cut like Starks in '05.
