Yes, in 2002, it wasn't great, but they couldn't stop the RUN, that year. An embarrassing, pathetic, awful defense. No, Dan Dierdorf, not decimated by injuries, just bad. Every team in the league is missing 2 or 3 starters. And to the fanboys, its annoying because at 10-3 you know with JUST a little defense they would be playing the Packers. Look at Houston, they drafted a couple players, spent a little money and brought in a DC. For Bill Belichick the GENIUS to put together this flotsam and jetsam, its pathetic. Also, poor clock mgmt, they got bailed out today. Plain and simple. Also, Fanboys, did you see your boy Orlovsky today? Its not laying back, its not focus, its not prevent, it a BAD, BAD defense with no talent, because they can't draft it, sign it or coach anymore. And Pats fans should be angry because if they can be 10-3 with this AWFUL defense imagine them with a good defense.
