[QUOTE]I didn't expect rookies and 2nd year players, minus Wilfork and Mayo, to become a SB defense. You did and that's your mistake. You probably thought by selling off Seymour and Vrabel that NE was really going for it all, too, right, Mt. Hurl? Don't put rebuilding in quotes again, because you look silly doing it. He wasn't going to spend a lot of money in an uncapped year for what he did this year out of a lockout. You don't know more than Kraft/BB/Reese/Caserio. He's doing what he did right now because of the lockout. How hard is this to understand? Many understood it and accepted it. And who said Deadrick, Brace, etc, as young as they are SB ready players? Who said they were pass rushers? Or Jermaine Cunningham learning OLB in a 3-4 as a rookie? As for the playoff game, last time I checked, it was 14-11 in the 4th qtr and the drive to nowhere wasn't the D's fault, nor was the bad INT or dropped TD pass. All on the O there. It's HIGHLY irrational to lash out at a young, inexperienced D and ignore the warts the offense showed in that game. It makes zero sense. We lost the game due to turnovers and failed offensive execution. The Green Bay Packers weren't starting rookies all over their defense nor did their offense turn it over in the SB. Use context or you look a little silly being that enraged over something that was never going to be built within a season.

Uhm how can I phrase this in a serious manner....are you on crack?
Boo who I'm lashing out at a young defense that is "rebuilding". Do you know anything at all about football? Certainly nothing about the nfl. Stick to high school football...ok Pharmaceutical "Liberal Arts Degree" rep. This is the NFL. Have you looked at any NFL rosters? Do they look a we bit different in your Lindsy Football Preview from the previous year? Teams have to change/rebuild every single damn year...every single one. Hell most teams find themselves rebuilding after the second week of the season after their better laid plans are washed out from a knee injury or two.
Last year during the pre season you said our defense was going to be fine after they got carved up by a rookie Sam Bradford. Guess what? It never stopped...all the way till the embarrassing flip in mid field by Braylon Edwards.
Teams with Tom Brady, Bill Belichick and 1 thousand draft choices aren't supposed to be rebuilding, they're supposed to be playing in the Super Bowl. Who in the lord's name said we're rebuilding? Belichick must of dialed you up and told you to spread it around, because no one else from anywhere within 300 miles of Patriot Place has said it.
