    This D is horrible - pedestrian if you ask me. Was the subraction of Asante Samuel the needle in the haystack?

    Re: Pats D = Years of bad drafts,signings?

    The Pats could have kept Asante Samuel. I don't understand why they let him go...Hobbs and all our DB can't fill his shoes

    Our D was horrific but our playcalling was even more horrific today.They where driving and the playcalling was horrible in the end.

    Re: Pats D = Years of bad drafts,signings?

    I disagree. From my point of view they just held a healthy indy offense to 18 points without getting any pressure on Manning. A lot of the drives for the colts started near midfield too if im not mistaken

    Although i wouldnt call our defense anything more than mediocre tonight. I definitely dont think that they were horrible or horrific

    Re: Pats D = Years of bad drafts,signings?

    Umm, didn't we hold the Colts to under 20?

    The D was okay.

    The offense was okay.

    Coaching cost us this game, with more than a little help from:

    - Thomas
    - Gaffney (aka Reche)
    - The refs

    The defense was not that bad. They are playing pretty well considering how many rookies are getting significant playing time.

    Seriously. We have a massive influx of inexperience at both DB and ILB, and these young cats are out there competing now.

    I feel rather good about the state of the Pats D and am thrilled with its potential upside.

    Right? I don't know what the standard is. The D was fine in my book, and the draft picks look to actually be good ones, especially Mayo (without annoying arguments) at this point.
