    how so? when you're up big time you take the foot off the pedla a bit and allow the underneath.

    Gay had an INT. I agree they could use improvement but it's not the end of the world and it has to be hard to keep up the intensity for the entire game when you are crushing a team.

    Mods, can we merge all the "defense is bad" threads? (and I never thought I would have to ask this after this blowout)

    They're not horrible, they're simply not playing up their level of talent. This is where having a defensive minded HC will pay off. The offense is on auto pilot at this point. Belichick will make sure the defense gets better. They'll be tackling deer on rte. 1 if need be. :bricks:

    I was going to take a shot at you for being a glass is half empty moron - then I noticed the self portrait in the avatar.

    I would have felt bad dishing out abuse (no matter how well deserved) to a toddler.

    How about some analysis, then? Otherwise it's just a messageboard fart.

    The D doesn't have to shut down the Colts, because the more important question is "Do you think the Colts can even slow down the Pats offense?" Get a grip on reality here, fella.

    You think their defense will shut down the Pats...wake the F&#$% Up.

    DeOssie said it best in the post game. This was a scrimmage. Tough to stay motivated on D through four quarters of scrimmage let alone when your offense spends the first half going off on the opponent AT WILL.

    It's the frigging 7th week of the season and the defense has steadily gotten WORSE. Belichick didn't have time to focus on getting them to improve before now? :rolleyes: Defense stinks because they lack speed, sure tacklers and real talent beyond the Dline and apparently Belichick's "schemes" cannot hide those deficiencies any more.

    If not for a bone head play by Matt Cassel, the Patriots only allow 21 points.

    See, this is why you make no sense. You're evaluating the defense by what they're doing in progressively bigger and bigger blowouts. Let's see what they do in an actual close game before you start whining.

    You don't "shutdown" the Colts offense anymore; you bend but don't break and let your offense win the game for you.

    As for this thread; the D is very solid. You can choose to overreact about a MAtt Cassel INT returned for a TD and 2 garbage time TD's...I won't.

    And what's happened when the team has absolutely had to make a stop? They've done it. Against the Chargers after the fumble on the kickoff. Against the Cowboys the ENTIRE SECOND HALF AFTER THEY TOOK THE LEAD. The first half of this game. Besides a few series the whole season, they have not been put under duress to make a big stop, but when they have they've pulled it off. Perspective is important when evaluating this defense.

    People on this board are getting ridiculous.

    Uh oh...you are in for it....don't put humble pie in most of these mouths out here......!!!! We got the win by a longshot......NEVER any question to that......BUT YOU LISTEN TO BILL B.....and he will not be happy....giving up 28 points to Chet Lemon and this deploreable team.....he won't be totally happy....
    I'm not comfortable with Matt Cassel at backup QB......will be interesting in what BB thinks...
