[QUOTE]Unless we find an answer to the good defenses we will not bring home the Lombardi. This is not a knee jerk reaction to the Jets game. We've had a tough time against the better defenses since the Eagles game of 2007. It's not a coincidence that the team that came the closest to beating us in the regular season of 2007 was the Ravens; the same type of defense the Jets now have. As I've said on other threads, few teams have the defensive talent to control our offense. The problem is that you probably have to go through one or more of those teams to get the Lombardi. We will adjust, and we will have a good shot at the Lombardi.

Amazing!! Look at Carawaydj talking like a spoilt rotten fan! This is EXACTLY what happens when you get used to blowing teams out! Are you serious? This is the NFL for crying out loud!! What the Pats did 2 years ago, is UNREAL!! You seriously cannot expect them to put on the same show every year!
Hey, there's a reason a good defese is CALLED a good defense - THEY'RE TOUGH TO PLAY AGAINST!! Saying "they've had a tough time with good defense", makes u look foolish and whiny! Of course, they'll have a tough time to play against a good defense!! A good defense would have to seriously BLOW IT for the Pats to have an "easy time" beating them! duh!!
The bottom line is you have put up more points than the team that has a good defense (typically those teams are defensive teams and hang their hats on holding the opponents to very little points so their pissed-poor offense can win it with a field-goal - that's generally their approach, ya know?)
What is it with all this negativity? If Mayo was in the game, we stop AT LEAST ONE of those field goals (remember the play where LEON W drags #59 for 8 yards to convert a 2rd & 8??). If Brady converts even ONE of those red zone posessions (like that throw that whizzed by within 6 inches of Eleman's hand at the goal line), we WIN the damm game!!! CUMMON GUYS!!
Seriously, stop reading more into it than their is, sure the Jets are an elite defense but if you as a PATRIOTS fan start thinking the Pats aren't good enough to beat them in a re-match, you're just a TOOOOTAL bandwagoner!! Pats will be back - that's something all you "they have a tough time with good defense" analysts can count on! hurrrumph!
