We saw yet another QB (Flacco) constantly having all kinds of time to throw the ball. We have a poor pass rush, and have for two years. We also saw that the Patriots have alot of young stud defensive players. Mayo is showing why he was defensive rookie of the year, the year before last. Spikes had a break out game yesterday. Cunningham was giving Michael Oher fits. Chung continues to be a beast. McCourty has been a fine rookie. Heck, even Ninkovich seems like a player out there. My question (and I don't even know what my answer would be to this question): Can the team with such talented youngsters on D, do well down the stretch and into the playoffs, with such a lack of pass rush? If Crable or Cunningham, or somebody else gives them a pass rush, the sky is the limit, but without a pass rush, are the Patriots limited in how good they can be? Would love to hear the various points of view.
