This defense has some young players. With young players you are going to have many breakdowns. With that said you have to let these guys go a little more than usual. You have to make some big plays. The Patriots conservative approach on defense doesn't work when your this young. It really doesn't work that much even with a team of veterans. Offenses are getting too creative these days.

Maybe even too creative for BB? He is the one who ultimately controls his coordinators isn't he? The bend don't break defense is out dated. Heck I hate the Jets but look what they are doing on defense... 

We should have been flying around the ball and blitzing allot more. A defense needs an attitude every time they step on the field. New England had none. That is all on the coaching staff. Either BB makes big changes on his staff or we get ready for more of the same thing next year.

I will still remain a PATS fan but I sure hope we find a little attitude on defense next year...
