varaven45 Posted October 13, 2015 Share Posted October 13, 2015 As I was lamenting over the team's early season misfortunes, I happened to catch Colin Cowherd salivating over the Bengals and Pats early season success - which is hard to argue. Then I was listening ad nauseam to NFL Network and how the Pats can do no wrong, even drafting their kicker Gostkowski to replace Adam V back in 06/07. Again, hard to argue. In looking back over the past few years, ours is the only D that has shut down NE's vaunted offense. Granted, it was with Ray, Reed, Ngata, Pollard (who took out Gronk) in our last SB run. That formula worked then but it ran its course. If you are the Biscuit & the FO, we've got to establish/create a new defensive identity moving forward. A reinvented D that designed to manhandle and dominate the current and emerging offensive schemes and athletes. I am certain Pees isn't the guy to coach em and not sure Ozzie can scout or draft em. We've got to hire someone who can lead this current/future breed of athletes, their skill set and mentality. One positive out of this defensive implosion is this - we can start to design the next defensive scheme and target the right skill set/players. Sometimes you got to take your lumps and look to the future. I'd rather suck it up now, get worked for a year or two (max), reload/rebuild the D (and O) and position ourselves for the next run.
