Re: Congrats To The D Yet Again

In response to Harvey-Wallbanger's comment:
They have been absolutely outstanding all year, and today, undermanned, up against the wall with that short field on Miami's second drive, they battled and flipped momentum singlehandedly.
From the hold on the long FG try off the upright by the D there, to the Logan Ryan sack/fumble with NInk as Johnny on the Spot (leads the NFL since 2010 in fumble recoveries), to Cole's INT with an assist to McCourty, to Cole's FG block.
Congrats to the players who are battling and holding the fort until key players like Talib and Kelly return. It should bode well later in the year.
Carter got more snaps than I expected, but overall he should help as he shakes off the rust.
THe D took out Mike Wallace, Hartline did very little and they contained the run game in the second half.
What's concerning is through 8 games this year, the only reason why we have 2 losses is because they could not channel the '85 Bears and bail out Brady. That's the only reason.
If that is our main problem, I'd say we need to hope Brady can snap out of it, sooner rather than later.
All hail arguably the AFCs best defense halfway through the season!
you have serious phychological problems
