In Response to Want a good laugh?
[QUOTE]Some fans have gone to great lengths to break down for us the brilliant rebuilding job super genius has done on our D. Sensational finds with high draft picks like Brace, Butler, Chung, Cunningham, Spikes, Wheatley, Crable and Meriweather have been painstakingly assembled by the mastermind and those in the know have told us this shiny new trap was about to be sprung upon an unsuspecting NFL this very season. Now here's the funny part. Instead of this master rebuilding plan finally reaching fruition, Hoodie goes out and finds a bevy of veteran defenders long in the tooth from all over the league, changes the basic premise of the D, and in doing so completely blows the hell out of that nonsense about rebuilding. He didn't rebuild. The people he drafted sucked and you can't rebuild with inferior parts. So now he's trying to throw something together at the last minute that might actually work. Are you laughing yet? You should be, because you just can't make stuff like this up.

Not sure what your talking about.
The Pats problem has been a pass rush. Their problems on pass coverage were exaggerated due to the fact that our corners were being forced to cover recievers for 2 or 3 seconds longer than they should have.
Other posters on this board have addressed your obvious errors. The pats have a young defense with one of the best middle backers in the league and Spikes who is yet an unknown, although he likes to bang between the tackles, I think I could be faster than him. I think Belichick will use Crable in passing situations. Spikes may be a run specialist?
Chung has a great nose for the ball, Barrett looks good. Do I need to mention Mccourty?
He brought in a few older guys to address their immediate problem, a pass rush. Using Haynesworth selectively and keeping him happy means they can penetrate up the middle now, against virtually anyone. Did you see his first play from scrimmage last week? He blew the guard back about 12 yards.
Ellis is a big body who has proven he can play. He hurt us last season. Carter is another savy veteran who can hold his own.
I don't know what you mean when you say he scrapped his rebuiding philosophy for a "bevy" of "long in the tooth" veterans. He brought in 3. Haynesworth, when motivated, has potential to be the most dominant D tackle in the league.
I think you just hate BB?
