In response to mthurl's comment:
Four out of our five top selections in the draft were placed on defensive players for a reason (we weren't very good)...it's time for them to be good. This defense is going to have to carry the offense for a change...no more 3rd and 100's being completed between two safeties that look like they've never seen a football before. No more bad angles from defensive backs - I swear I have heard the term "bad angle" more times over the last three years than I've blinked. No more opposing quarterbacks feeling like they are in the most safest spot on the planet (in front of our pass rush), while they fire off pass, after pass...with little skill, trouble or care. A blind quarterback with no arms, facing the wrong way could of completed passes on our defense last year before Talib got there.
No more being the worst - it's been five damn years of "rebuilding" - we need to see the finished product winning games.
I wouldn't say that the defense has to carry the offense, but rather, they need to start pulling their weight - and make timely stops when needed the most. It's time for them to be able to get off the field in a more timely manner, giving the offense an additional possession or two - just complemenatry footbal. It's not about becoming a defensive juggernaut from an offensive one.
Is it like when Brady threw that INT in Washington in 2011 when he threw late and had too much air under it to Underwood from the freaking 3 yard line and it was predictably picked? That game?, That was when Mayo had an INT to ice the game for us.
Brady was constantly doing things in 2011 in terms of putting our D back on the field much quicker than the average team.
Kinda like that, troll?
It's a myth our D doesn't carry their own weight. A big reason why we ran more plays than anyone in NFL history last year was not only the use of the hurry up, but because our D led the AFC yet again in creating turnovers so our offense could try to score more.
And yes, I know you have me on ignore. It still doesn't mean your premise of our D being held to a different standard than the offense, shouldn't be exposed. lmao
I'm sure you have long since figured out that all these folks that were crowing two days ago about "ignoring" people constantly undo "ignore" to see what people are saying about them...LMAO...human nature is a trip...Phat Rex reads it all...his poor self esteem dictates that his ego is so far outsized that he even thinks he's outsmarting people about his many names here...he's such a dumbazz...what's hilarious are all the idiots here who don't realize it...it's actually sad...f em all ...never underestimate peoples ability to be just jack stupid!
