Imagine, the D only gave up 13 points to the Bengals and if that is all we knew about the game, how many here would have thought the Pats won? Better yet, the D has given up an average of just over 12 points per game, (discounting the ST TD scored against the Pats) and this fan base would be saying "Alleluiah" for such a performance by the D YTD.
Given how everyone is saying D wins titles, will this D carry the team this year? Yeah, I know, they have yet to play against the Saints and Broncos, but, didn't every talk about how the Falcons would run roughshod over them in Atlanta?
Seems the D may be the saving grace for this team given the focus in many of the threads here is about the paultry offense and the performance of one future HoF QB named Brady.
Just trying to change the direction of this forum to talk about an improved aspect of the team versus all the doom and gloom about the offense. Gotta talk about something good!
