    Yep, we need to do both. I don’t care where they come from, draft or free agents. And someone needs to let Reggie know that he can trade draft picks and players to other teams also.
    Just go out and get another corner and edge rusher by any means necessary. It’s your job Reggie.

    But for sure don't trade one of those precious draft picks.

    Fuck you McKenzie. Fat Fuck

    Look at NE.. they have very little in the way of pass rush. What they do have though is a good Red zone defense that can clamp down when needed. You can get away with less pass rush when your team is scoring points and your Red zone defense is keeping teams at or bellow 50%. The biggest diffetence is the Pats will allow you to move the ball, but they dictate to who, when, and for how long.

    So far this season we have given up 3 TD's to WR's in the Red zone. Landry, Holmes, and Kearse. 3 TD's to TE's, Mariotta and Taylor scrambled for 1 each. The other 5 to RB's 3 rush to passes. We've given up 2 defensive TD's, one in Buffalo, the other against Baltimore. So we've given up 13 TD's inside the 20's

    Outside The 20's we've given up 1 rushing TD to McCoy, we've given up 1 TD to a TE Derby, and we've gotten hit from 4 WR's for strikes over 30 yards and 1 RB Thompson have had a 22 yard receiving TD.

    NE’s defense is ass they just have the offense to make up for it. They do have decent corners and no pass rush tho.

    Big difference between statistically being ass, and being ass. Keeping teams out of the endzone is how you win games, especially when your offense can score and your team can keep them from scoring. Outside of the two losses and the game against Houston they have held opponents to 20 points or less.

    Two of those teams introduced new elements into their game they didn't have before and really had dominating performances, Hunt and Watson. The reality of NE's defense is it's a bend don't break defense that limits teams to FG's, but lesser offenses don't really get anywhere against them. Carolina being the exception, and Newton is a guy who, on good days can win games by himself.

    Fair points and NE has been playing better (we knew they would get right in time to play us). I think BB's D's has always struggled against big mobile QBs like Cam. They are getting it done without much in the way of pass rush, so a good point about corners (and coaching) being important.

    If TD does not introduce something unexpected against NE, like he did against KC, BB will have his players in place to stuff the run and shutdown our receiving options. TD has had two weeks to self-scout and prepare. Hopefully he proves his chops after the Bye week.

    If we just go back to running the ball with authority up the middle using some inside zone and power man I think we can establish the run against them. We're going to have to do something different. You just know BB isn't going to allow one element of our offense to work. I'm betting he takes away Cook.

    With Damien Harris at MLB, sure seems we should be able to exploit him with Cook or one of the Midgets. That guy has to cover somebody.

    If it came to the AFC title game, right now I'd have to pick Pitt over NE. Belicheck can't scheme away both Bell and Roethlisberger at the same time. And Pitt's good at getting after the QB, which is Brady's Kryptonite, especially in the playoffs.

    NFC I haven no idea? Saints or Panthers?

    Hasn't worked for them recently. Pitt is not a real good team. In the AFC I only see 1 team beating NE and that's KC... Problem is their nut was cracked. Hunt is becoming less and less effective as the weeks go on.

    The other team that could give them absolute fits is Jacksonville. That team is getting after the QB extremely well, and they can run create turnovers. If Jax can get to a game against NE in the playoffs, I would not be shocked to see them come out with the win.

    As far as the NFC goes... I'm going to toss a curve ball and say, the Vikings get the job done.

    Vikings vs Jacksonville

    Like Dilfer was even remotely as bad as Bortles.
