    There's too much talent between Seymour, Wilfork, and Warren to sit and play a 2 gap space eating scheme all the time, these guys need to be turned loose a lil more in my opinion and let them get after the quarterback more.

    Dont get me wrong I like the way Pats play the 3-4 D, what I dont really like is the "read and react" way those 3 primairly have to play. I know my opinion means nada but I think theres way too much talent and they need to be unleashed a lil or however you want to put it and let them go get the qb...

    that is all enjoy your weekend....

    None of them have been sack machines in their career I mean yeah they're really talented but they're by no means pass rushers

    does 2 gap change to more one gap when it's 3rd and long?

    we need jarvis to get back to what he use to be. he hasn't seemed to get much pressure on the qb.

    We rushing 4 mostly which means the 7 dropping back need to cover better as with 4 it is going to take for pressure to develop. last week for all the bad thing we held LT below 100 yds with front 6 [not 7].

    BB has said it a lot of times that is all complimentary. This week he was asked about the lack of pass rush effecting those deep completions .He said the job of the back line defense is not to allow completions over your head. They cannot depend on the pass rush. Our scheme different.You rarely see a QB getting sacked because we had a monster at pass rush all the time beating blockers in 2 secs and getting the QB unless its a blitz.Our scheme -the technical guys on the board can correct me - relies more on sound coverage,making the QB hold a little longer which may end up in bad throws or the pass rush eventually getting to them.

    Our blitz actually scares me because our blitzers are slow to get there. iam hoping merriweather or someone quicker and younger is added to the blitz package but we dont have sound defenders in the secondary to dedicate for blitzes right now.
