The Patriots run defense was terrible last night. This game was very reminiscent of the early part of 2005. It seems to me that this defense is very susceptible to the quick hit type running plays up the middle where the D Line does not have enough time to recongnize and to react in the 2 gap technique. We saw this type of play all too often last year. Does anyone have any insight into this issue? Was it the failure of the LBs more so than the D Line? I am very skeptical of the 3-4 because it seems that it is too difficult exicute technique-wise against this type of play.
