    They will amazingly not be the worst ranked defense by yards.


    Green Bay 411.6 ypg
    Pats 411.1 ypg

    And on passing yards yep not last anymore

    Green Bay 299.8 ypg (4796 total yards)
    Pats 293.9 ypg (4703 total yards)

    Re: Pats defense

    The Packers' defense probably isn't worse than the Patriots', but it's not nearly as good as people here thing.

    It's all about how the 46 active players for the NEP play in two weeks.

    Howzabout a Superbowl between the two teams ranked last in defense in their respective conferences? Not that today's rules favor the offense, no, not at all....

    Re: Pats defense

    They were just a hair better in both yards and points allowed prior to this meaningless game. I think they're closer to being tied than the Packers being better, but I think it's really hard to argue for the Patriots' defense being better.

    Pats v. Pack SB would finally kill off the retarded "Defense wins championships" mantra. One of my most hated cliches in all of sports.

    What are the mediots going to do without their endless talk how this was the worst defense in NFL history?

    BTW, considering two teams are statistcally this bad on a historical perspective and three QBs have thrown for over 5,000 yards this year while only two others have thrown for over 5,000 in league history; don't we really have to discount these yardage stats when comparing them to history?

    And the funny thing is that that game might have total points under 25. sometimes when you expect a shoot out, you get a great defensive game.

    Anyone that states that the Pats have a historically bad defense has no idea what they are talking about. They are not even that bad for 2011 let alone all time. Not sure how a defense that creates a ton of turnovers and is middle of the pack in points allowed can even be in the conversation. Just makes you realize the lack of depth the pundits have.

    I'll agree with basically the same.

    Re: Pats defense

    I think comparing the Pats and Packers defenses is accurate. Both are closer to middle of the pack than "bottom of the League" as all the talking heads will be spouting about the rest of the playoffs. When yardage is somehow selected as the barometer of rankings and the majority of analysts refuse to dig even an inch deeper into the truth we will have the pleasure of hearing this nonsense again and again.

    They don't. We're all celebrating that we never have to hear "worst defense" ever again.
