To get out of the afc, we're going to have go through manning and Brady's no huddle......I just don't think we"ll come close to stopping those offenses with cushions

no, but we can stop those offenses by putting their qb's on their asses which is what we drafted for.

Those Offenses just have too many weapons and their Qbs are too good to fool them with Blitz schemes

And you add on the rules that favor them.....and I just feel its near impossible to do it the way we have been doing it


We need a strong 4-Man rush so we can keep an extra guy in coverage and corners with better man to man skills

We beat manning in 2005 by getting in his face. We haven't had run-ins with Brady in the playoffs since the early 2000's, but I don't think the pats are as invincible as they were then. They had a complete team in the early 2000's, but couldn't sniff a championship after their defense fell off.

Tom brady wasn't invincible against us either, they just had a better overall team than us. We the better defense, but they were better offense and ST (and still had a defense that was almost as good)

good points, but you don't have to fool them as much as rattle them.

i'd be curious to know a long term plan at CB.

The Rules have changed alot since 2005, hell theyve changed a lot since our last SB with GB where we couldnt handle Rodgers spread......even with all their injuries

It really depends on the officiating crew, I thought seattle was just as physical as the steelers defense a few years back, only thing is they weren't getting flagged and fined.

Packers game would have been closer if our offense didn't turn the damn ball over so much. We should have won that game, but we beat ourselves



Let me start off by saying this, do not blame the game on the defense, ok, I don't care who you play... Whether it be a high school team, a junior college team, a college team, an NFL team, MUCH LESS a super bowl team, when you turn the ball over 3 times, one for a touchdown, 2 others in field position to set up touchdowns, you ain't gonna beat anybody i just talked about... anybody

Spot on.

Spot onner.

Who needs corners when we have a fucking Snorlax charging head-first through the middle of the other team's OLine?
