    They dont play a 3-4 but they draft LBs and DEs.They must be really high on crable then.

    My point is their LB unit is very weak with the exception of Mayo.Teddy is old.

    What's with this need for a designated pass rusher? The strength of the QB pressure on this defense has been that you didn't know where it was coming from, not that you knew where and couldn't stop it. The unwritten saw that injuries don't count is only good up to a point. Sooner or later, you have to acknowledge them or you throw the baby out with the bath. Crable, Rudd, Redd, Guyton, Woods, one or two of these guys, minimum, are players. We need to find out who before we move on.

    It still remains a huge hole in the Pats defense. Without a pass rush, the soft zone secondary is exposed even if Mike Haynes and Ty Law were in theirprime and back there.

    I am still hoping we can trade with Jacksonville and get Groves.

    Shawn Crable, Vince Redd, and Angelo Craig all say "HI"

    Now, that that is out of the way. Please enlighten EVERYONE as to which "young pass rushers" would have come in and helped the Patriots immediately. And then tell everyone how you know this for certainty.

    Adalius Thomas, Pierre Woods, Angelo Craig, Vince Redd, Gary Guyton, Pierre Woods, and Tully Banta-Cain.

    And, btw, since you missed it, there is still four picks in the 3rd round and another 5 picks in the last 4 rounds that the pats can add "pass rushers".

    Also, the Pats defense excells at rushing the passer when they can rush from all 4 LB positions. And, last year, they had 3 starters out for the last 6 weeks of the season. Not to mention that the Pats didn't rush Mayo but a few dozen times all season, if that. This year will be different.

    Like i said, we will see wat Crable can do but u can never have some depth.Even the analyst were saying, why arent they taking some young LBs.This team was poor stopping the run for a reason.

    The scheme is designed for the OLB's to do 90 percent of the rushing, but lately since the middle of the 2007 season, none of the Pats OLBs are getting it done.

    Last year Meriweather was our most effective blitzer. How sad is that???????

    Can Crable bethe answer? Maybe but it is going to take a bunch of time.

    Vince Redd, Pierre Woods, and Tully Banta-Cain all say HI. They've all seen the field.

    Please. You can't see the future so stop pretending like you know what's gonna happen.

    As for the "ANALYSTS," who the hell are they? How many SB rings have they won as a GM? WTF do they know. They are all a bunch of talking heads who are there to sound like they know what they are talking about. And most of them are as clueless as the fans. Hell, there are people on this board smarter than most of them when it comes to the draft.
