[QUOTE]In Response to Groiwing tired of Patriot Defense! : Let me see....the Pats give up 186 Passing yds to what is supposed to be an explosive offense with TO and Evans. The Pats give up 90 rushing yds..... The Pats give up 17 defensive points.... The Pats get 4 sacks...2 of them right when we needed them most....we even had 1 called back because AD was dumb..... They do all this when we don't have Harrison, Assante Samuel, Hobbs, Bruschi, Vrabel and Mayo (for 3/4 of the game)....and you HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE DEFENSE?!?! Are you that greedy? You don't like boring? Well that is too bad.....I want a good defense and that is how they are playing right now. Maybe you should go cry on the Jets board.....you would fit in there......

Not only did they have 4 sacks, they should have had two more. The Wilfork penalty which WAS a sack, and if Thomas had stopped at the whistle during the roughing penalty in the 4Q. Buffalo had 9 possessions, punted 4x and fumbled it away one. How is that bad?
What I am getting real sick of is Massarotti and Felger constantly dumping on the defense. We don't know how good or bad they will be, but these two blowhards make it sound like they have no shot at being good.
Not only will Mayo return, but Boddens, Thomas, Wilfork, Meriweather, Banta-Cain and Warren all had very strong games. Butler and Chung also had meaningful playing time and did just fine. I loved the play where Boddens croaked TO and jarred the ball loose.
Green started 7 games in lieu of Seymour in 2007, by my count they won all 7. Yet Dumb and Dumber keep harping on how he's one year older. Green is an ok stop-gap replacement, but Brace more than likely is the future replacement.
