Put on the Daddy shoes. You tell me. How do you beat this defense? I got to thinking in another thread...why don't teams pass more on the Pats? Why on earth would any team try to ground and pound the Pats. They have too much depth on the D line for that. Plus the likes of Spikes, and Hightower....slow(ish) thumpers. Why wouldn't you use your tight ends against these guys. While you're trying to establish the running game, Brady has rung up 14 on your ass and the game's virtually over. What gives this D fits? Small, speedy 3rd down backs? TE's? The Pennington/Henne's of the world? Quick, short passes...take what the 'bend but don't break' gives you? This D eats up gunslingers and makes you pay for your mistakes.
