    Man, this team is going to have a ton of flexibility by the end of the season; opponents can get any number of varying defensive looks.

    No surprise considering Seau just came back.

    It'd be great to see some more 3-4 looks. Not sure how often they were in the 3-4 today, but way more than I've seen all year. And apart from a few big runs from Chris Johnson (which should be expected), they did pretty well against the run.

    Mayo healthy for the second week and the addition of Seau make it possible for us to run much more 3-4, which I think is better for the team. Warren and Wilfork thrive in the 3-4.

    It was game specific to stop Chris Johnson.

    128 yds later say it wasn't very effective if that is indeed the reason......

    We didn't give up the "big play" if that counts for anything with you.

    It is hard to say how good the defense was today really. The game was so far out of reach, the titans had their hearts ripped out--it was clear they just didn't want to be there.

    If anyone wants to nitpick, Pats didn't have a single sack I think. But who really cares, this is the greatest PATS nation day I can remember in months!

    Stop it, Chris had a run of 48 yds......
    That's a pretty big play no matter how ya slice it, nevermind at least 1 big one that was called back for holding.

    Chris Johnson was not held in check, the QBS were
