We used to be known as the gritty, clutch, hard nosed physical Defense who always knew how to come up with the big play when it mattered. It was such a treat to watch. In just 4 years(since 2007), our reputation has now diminished to the point where every fan, expert, coach in America laughs at our defense. It is now considered the very worst in the NFL. It's "New England's defense sucks". Just tonight on NFL Network, one guy said how Tim Tebow hasn't faced a Belichick led defense yet, and our very own Willie McGinist interrupted and said "Well this Belichick defense is not good.(he laughs). Not good at all." Hearing that just made me shake my head. How is it that the best defensive minded coach in NFL history, could let a defense go from top 5, to a bottom 5 D? This was the guy who coached that amazing Giants Defense in the late 1980s. The man who coached/developed the greatest defensive player of all time...Lawrence Taylor. The man who coached the amazing New England D during the Dynasty years. How could he possibly have let this happen? With all those draft picks? What is Belichick's philosophy when it comes to drafting defensive talent? What traits does he look for in defensive players?
