In response to BostonTrollSpanker's comment:
"NEWSFLASH: We ain't winning postseason games with just 20 points. It has to be more than that."
If Gronk is in there we easily break 20 points. It's no surprise the red zone offense struggled without him, especially consider all our wideouts were hurt also.
You grant the defense all kinds of excuses for injuries but if the offense has injuries that affect performance, that's all Brady's fault.
That's the height of hypocrisy on your part. Fortunately the rest of the world can see what is obvious.
Ty Law (who knows a thing or two about winning Super Bowl). "This is not a championship defense."
No it most certainly is not. And you are correct: in its current state, the offense cannot cover up for our defensive problems. The sad thing is that without those key injuries the D might be been pretty good, but that's another story. We can't stop other teams when it counts and the offense isn't good enough to pick up the slack.
The offense at least can practice their tails off and figure out how to improve and get a couple guys healthy. Our defense is, sadly, close to its barely adequate ceiling.
Can't disagree with Ty there. I do think the defense can play a little better with Collins and Harmon out there, but the injuries have really shattered any chances of this defense being great. Such a shame because they were playing well before the injuries.
