In response to prolate0spheroid's comment:
Funny how BB makes a statement that execution is more important than X's and O's in the playoffs and we have a whole bunch of posters telling us he's wrong. I guess Champ and Coolade and Wozzy and Rusty all have won more Super Bowls in their illustrious coaching careers than poor misguided Bill Belichick.
If only you could mail in your Draft, and Free agent targets to Bill Belichick so that he might acquire the talent necessary to "execute" and win SB's. As you say we don't have the talent to win, and our offense was only 1 dimensional due to the poor "talent" level. I guess you know more then BB as a GM.
Oh and our defense suks as you say, even tho it has been proven that our defense gets better the latter half of the year, every year for the past 3 years.....you know, the same time you have been saying it suks.
Jackie Mac's article showed us that our defense gives up a 32 passer rating in the 2nd half of the year since 2009 for opposing QB's. Which by the way is 2nd in the National Football league. Fans like you think our D suks due to BB's defensive coaching style...which allows for growth./ He doesn't let the D get after the QB until the latter half of the year. Giving up 17 and 19 points in 2 SB's is not a bad thing. Then again, I am sure you will have a graph of a chart of a spread sheet that shows us that Bill Belichicks defense actually "suks".
PRO and Z are not wrong. Frankly I don't feel you are qualified to say so.
The article from BB clearly states what has been mentioned as did the one where he said "I don't see Corey Dillion running out here". You and your clan pick obscure garbage and ignore the obvious. For one the decrease in the shotgun though over all less has not decreased in certain games and circumstance. Mainly when the run game is going backwards, but just ignore that.
Yes there has been an increase in the run but it is due to TALENT and EXECUTION. Logan Mankins clearly stated that they run when they do good and not so much when they don't. He was talking about the line and the backs, either way, execution is the key. PERIOD!!!!!
AS far as the D sucking, here's something you might understand. No graphs, just cold hard football FACTS. It was done in october but that's irrelevant as the stats are not much better to date EVEN with the increase in production.
New England Patriots Pass Defense On Pace For Worst In Team History Cold, Hard Football Facts for Oct 15, 2012
Russell Wilson is the latest in a long line of ordinary quarterbacks to produce extraordinary performances against the Patriots and Bill Belichick's once-feared defense.
Wilson averaged 10.9 YPA, with 3 TD, 0 INT and a 133.7 passer rating in Seattle's 24-23 win over New England on Sunday.
He entered the game averaging 6.5 YPA with 5 TD, 6 INT and a 75.2 passer rating.
For a little perspective, Tom Brady has topped 10.9 YPA just 8 times in his prolific Hall of Fame career.
The Patriots now have a 100.9 Defensive Passer Rating. That's bad, for those of you keeping score at home.
Here are the worst DPR's in Patriots history, with the team's record:
2012 Patriots (1-2) âÂÂ 100.9
1972 Patriots (3-11) âÂÂ 92.2
1989 Patriots (5-11) âÂÂ 91.6
1995 Patriots (6-10) âÂÂ 91.4
1990 Patriots (1-15) âÂÂ 89.9
Only seven teams in history, heading into this year, posted a Defensive Passer Rating of worse than 100.9. Those teams went a combined 13-90 (.126).
2008 Lions (0-16) âÂÂ 110.9
2011 Vikings (3-13) âÂÂ 107.6
1982 Oilers (1-8) âÂÂ 107.3
2009 Lions (2-14) âÂÂ 107.0
1984 Vikings (3-13) âÂÂ 104.4
2011 Colts (2-14) âÂÂ 103.9
1968 Falcons (2-12) âÂÂ 101.3
Clearly, passer ratings are sky high this year. Seven teams are on pace through Week 6 to post Defensive Passer Ratings worse than 100. Just 12 teams have posted a DPR of 100 or worse in NFL history up through 2011.
Regardless, worst in franchise history is the worst in franchise history. (And the worst in the league is the worst in the league) And the failure to make a key stop on pass defense has haunted the Patriots in their losses to the Ravens and Seahawks this year, as well as in countless big games in recent years, including the team's last two Super Bowls.
They are now at a 92.6 WHOOPIE! Did you catch the part about that being the reason for the last 2 superbowl losses.. These are not opinions. They are facts.
Try using them before you proclaim much more knowlegeable persons than you, WRONG!
Also either Jackie's figures are wrong or you missunderstood them. The pats are 6th of the 8 remaining play-off teams in passer rating differential which is a result of the HIGH DPR cancelling out the excellent OPR. In other words they are only 6th of 8 because of the sucky D. And it doesn't appear they played better in the second half of last year including the play-offs if you look at their DPR in those games, they were HORRENDOUS! It was worst than the 1972 D for cripes sake.
NO TEAM IN THE HISTORY OF THE NFL HAS EVER WON A SUPER BOWL WITH A DPR OF 90.
FACT!!!!!! NOT OPINION!!!!!!
