How could Belichick put this defense on the field?

Once again this game proves that this team is soft mentally and doesnt have any character. This team isn't designed to win in playoffs. This is the same Indianapolis Colts team the Pats loved to mock.
If Brady doesn't play well, this team is done. 31 points should be enough to win a game, but he needs to put up 45 every game. Isn't it obvious what the problem is? This team cannot overcome any controversy, and it won't get any better.
The most shocking thing is how bad a defense BB continues to put out on the field. Has he lost it on defense? When was the last time we had a decent defense? Its been at least 5 years going on 6. This defense cannot stop a nose bleed, as Bart Scott noted. Every QB this defense goes up against ends up looking like Dan Marino or Joe Montana. We have the worst defense in the AFC East and possibly the entire NFL. You cannot win playing this way. The team cannot overcome an off game by Brady.
How about BB take some responsibility? The team has 2 players from 2006-2008 drafts. Every year its a huge turnover of the roster and defense doesnt get better. Cutting Wilhite, Butler, Meriweather, Sanders. Constantly signing washed up veterans like Ellis, Ochocinho, Galloway. Need I mention constantly drafting players linked to his buddies in college, like Spikes and Cunningham. They've shown absolutely nothing and will get cut by next year. The team cannot draft WR either, as Branch is the last one drafted who has contributed anything.
Other coaches come in and improve the defense within 2 years, How long will BB need? Every year half the defense changes.
The team has no hope to beat teams like the Jets, Ravens, Packers, Saints, Texans in the playoffs. Brady will be slowed down just enough and the defense will not be stopping anyone.
How long before the team gets a defense? Brady not getting younger

This is BB being insanely stubborn. It's been obvious for 3+ years that our D is total crap, but every year in the draft, he refuses to draft players on D.
Clay Matthews? Nope, don't need him. Let's draft a backup QB instead, or maybe a 7th TE, or a backup RB project.
I give up trying to make any sense out of it.
I think we'd be better off finishing 6-10 this year, losing games 49-42 every week. It's obvious that we can't win a playoff game with a laughingstock defense. How many years since we won a playoff game?
