Can we finally accept that these guys are really, really good...?
It seemed many "fans", and perhaps rightfully so, wanted to see them play a capable offense. I thought they had answered any questions following the Atlanta game, but, alas, many wanted to see how they'd fare against the vaunted Saints' offense.
Well, they passed... and in flying colors. Considering the fact that Talib missed nearly all of the 2nd half, and Mayo missed the last few series, makes the performance all the more impressive. When these two went out, they didn't miss a beat. Big time performance against the 2nd-best, arguably THE best, offense in the league.
Let's give this defense their due, and accept that they're a top unit in the NFL.
I would say that this was the game that "proves" the defense is legit. Although the defense gave up the TD to Brees/Stills, the D also came up with two 3-and-outs afterward. Some players gotta get healthy.
You know what proves you're legit as a Pat's fan Bustchise...NOTHING...
You are a Jets troll and the entire board knows it...just a lost jet troll whose home team is dead as the great white whale....When the New Bedford sailor pointed out into the Long Island Sound and shouted "Thar she blows", he meant YOUR New York Jets
