    Sports is all about nicknames, so let's try to find a name that represents the Patriot's defense. There are many that might come to mind:

    1) Carpet Bomb defense
    2) Air Raid Defense
    3) Duck and cover defense
    4) Bill's Bungles
    5) Trend setting defense - Taking the new defensive rules to their maximum limit.
    6) Kinder, gentler defense.
    7) QB Career makers
    8) QB's best friends
    9) "We don't need no stinking defense" defense
    10) Man on manless defense (One on none?)

    I expect to see it improve to average (hoping it still creates trnovers as well).

    For now, I call it "Air Bail"

    Think about it...

    Bend and Break defense. I know it's not original, but those were the first words that came to mind when I thought about the defense.:p

    I was reminded of Ron Erhardt's "Red Sea Defense", but these guys are the opposite, Maybe we should call this defense the Pearl Harbor defense?

    The question mark defense?
    The best is still to come defense?

    I think they can be a solid defense with more time together and if they happen to get healthier by the end of the year. Right now they just aren't there.

    "F" Troop defense?

    The end of the NFL was near when quite accidentally, a team won some games, despite the fame of their underperforming defense. Their leader it seems, was famous for schemes, that worked and had won some big games.

    Last year people kept on saying they were seeing an improvement, I was just seeing offenses making mistakes all the way to the playoffs.

    This year, I am actually encourage based on what I have not see. I know I sound strange, but we have not seen any package out there, he have barely blitzed, no team can say they have tape on us come the back of the season, this also goes for offense. Teams at the moment just talk about Woodhead and BJGL. They have no idea who or what I Rookies can do. No one knows about Price.
