In response to coolade2's comment:
For sure... but these wins give the pats a cushion and also the old tried and true advantage of sneaking up on some of these teams. Pats will not be favored the next 2 weeks and this will help them along with their stacked Defense.
This defense will start scaring teams pretty soon if they're not already. They can stuff your running game , rush the passer and cover. Gregory is playing fast and confident alongside McCourty. Same with corners... Talib seems to have injected confidence and aggression to this group . Wow. Nink, Jones Kelly wilfork.... Its not fair.
And then you have the linebackers who compliment each other. Spikes to stuff the 4th and 1.... Hightower to run with the backs out of the backfield ( did you see the coverage on that play down the sideline?.. Perfect). And then mayo who does it all and QBs the unit.
Wow... Where is the weakness?
Umm... they have no cushion.
The Fins, who just happened to beat Atlanta are also 3-0..
The weakness is so far, they have played first & second game rookie QB's and dysfunctional QB's who had a big hand in beating themselves.
Maybe temper that "world beater" thing until they actually play a functional offense?
Good point, their cushion in the division is zero. agree about the competition but freeman, Jackson and Williams are good, if not great.
Disagree on tempering enthusiasm. If you can't get excited about this defense you should maybe recharge the defibrillator...
