I was going through some of these articles on the terrible offseason of the Patriots, and came across several references to the Trinity of Belichick, Brady and Vinatieri. Which got me to wondering, what about Seymour? Is not defense just as important as Offense and special teams? Has he not been a force in all three superbowl runs? I know as a D-lineman in the 3-4 he does not get much press coverage, but the fact is that when he is in there it forces the other team into less then favorable deployments to stop him. So why is he not counted as vital link? Including him in the structure of winning certainly changes the view on things, we lost our special teams big play maker, but retained our defensive star. Who do you think would be easier to replace? Who do you think opposing teams fear more, our kicker or our premire D-lineman?
