The critics have blasted them all season, but Sunday night the Patriots defense proved that they really are better than people think.

RT @FO_ScottKacsmar: Last NE-ATL game is about as irrelevant as it gets. 2013, early in the season, hardly any of the same starters left.

RT @MarkDanielsPJ: In-season defensive adjustments key for the Patriots Super Bowl run

@gbradyradio 2 diff players, roles. 1 is a true slot, the best ever. The other a more versatile, all over the field guy. Both great players

@johnnyroosevelt should have thrown at the covered ones to exhibit better quarterbacking 🙄

RT @CSNNE: For some @Patriots, a Super Bowl trip isn't old hat . . . and they're thrilled beyond words. @tomecurran

If "the system" is what makes Brady so great, then Osweiler would be an All-Pro...same O system. "The system" arguments are beyond dumb.

Injury replacements are not Pro Bowlers. You have to be on the initial roster.

    Breaking news during the Heat-Celts game. Guy is a MASSIVE douchebag, but a great competitor. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Mr. Rondo.

    I have not lost any respect for the Celtics who were the last Boston team (major) to win a championshiip. I guess you will not post when they raise Paul Pierce's number.

    That's unfortunate. Time for the Celtics to start planning for the future.

    The Celtics made big mistakes signing Jeff Green and Brandon Bass to those big contracts.

    Jeff Green is horrible, zero basketball IQ and a weak defender.
    Bass plays weak for his size, he gets pushed around and under-rebounds for a PF.

    bigcountry75 Third String But Playing on Special Teams

    I have been thinking to myself over the past year or so that the Celtics may be better without Rondo....My reasoning is the fact that his shot (though it has gotten better) is very inconsistent....This team may be better without Rondo as it doesn't allow the defense to sink to the foul line and clog the middle of the lane thus allowing KG and Pierce more room to work and get to the hoop....Barbosa is a guy that i really like as he has the speed that Rondo had but also can shoot from distance allowing us to burn the defense for dropping off of him....Also from watching almost every single Celtics game the last few years it looks like Rondo's defense was starting to lack and he would just try the steal from behind instead of staying in front of his defender....When we have Bradley and Barbosa or Lee on the floor the defense seems to be better....This is my opinion and hopefully Terry can find a shot soon and this team can prove me right....

    I sort of agree sadly. Rondo is a human highlight reel but the stats don't lie - they are slightly better without him.

    Not that he's useless but the team in its current form doesn't utilize his talent.
