Okay, so the Patriots struggled last week against the Bills, and it appears out D is pretty bad. Brady has finally showed himself to be mortal, and perhaps we have the right to be a little concerned. Now, those of us who recall the Belichick era probably recall that he made his name as an outstanding defensive coach. His game plans elevated the game of football into something more like chess. He was far and away best at disguising defenses, introducing creative schemes, identifying tendencies and good matchups, maximizing the potential of his defensive players, and preparing for all sorts of specific situations. But, in recent years, the Pats have become a more offensive oriented team, and while Brady has put up incredible stats, the stats that that are missing are playoff victories and respectable defensive stats. Who do you think is responsible for the Pats changing from a defensive team to an offensive team? My feeling is it's Kraft. Brady is the franchise from an economic point of view, so Kraft I think has pushed to build the team around Brady. It's the same phenomenon we saw with Brett Favre. Even well after his prime, he was wanted by teams because of his name recognition, the excitement he generated, and the economic value of that. Brady makes Kraft's investment a good one whether or not the Pats do well in the playoffs. What do you think?
