    In the Draft, Get a Pass-Rusher (PLEASE BILL).

    Yesterday's defensive game plan by Rex Ryan was very similar to the one Bill Belichick used against the Rams in 2001. It was a defense which mostly just rushed 3-4 guys, and everybody else dropped back into coverage, or basically chipped the receivers knocking them off their routes and their timing.

    As we all witnessed yesterday this defense confused and stopped Tom Brady, just as it stopped "The Greatest Show on Turf" and Kurt Warner in 2001.

    Now, here's the important part, the only way a team can truly run this defense and have it be most effective, is to still get pressure while only rushing 3 or sometimes 4 guys(ie., Jets had 5 sacks yesterday) because they have a guy named Shaun Ellis, who can do what no Patriot can - rush the quarterback.

    When the Patriots ran this defense in 2001, they had 2 guys who made Kurt Warner uncomfortable with hurries and sacks by the names of Richard Seymour and Willie McGinnest.

    That being said, isn't time for Bill Belichick to address the pass-rushing situation or lack there of, and time to improve and get tougher on both sides of the ball, namely - the defensive and offensive lines.

    The Jets imposed their will on the Patriots, because they were the tougher team up front, on both sides of the ball, it's just that simple.

    Needless to say, the Pats have a real good young team, but need to start consistently harassing the opposing teams QB, with a DE or linebacker, preferably both.

    It has been a problem for a few years the pass rush. In the 3-4 alignment the outside pressure must come from the linebackers mostly. Pats don't have someone alar Mcginnest to do this and haven't since he has been gone. No suprise they haven't won a superbowl since they lost the likes of Mcginiest and big Ted Johnson. Current Linebackers don't have an inspirational leader. Mayo is a tireless workhorse but is not an inspirational leader like Bruschi and nor does he make game changing plays. Pats are mostly set for another few years to challenge for the title but need to find something from their linebackers.

    It's really tough to watch these young QB's like Sanchez have success against their D, all because they can't put a finger on him.

    I think we need someone that can block Kris Jenkins, who single handedly beat us
