This right here. If they don’t make wholesale changes to this defense there will be no super bowl wins for the foreseeable future. Last year was a one in a billion comeback. It’s absurd that Brady is constantly being asked to save the day, he deserves a competent D.41 points & over 500 yards.
And that has nothing to do with what was mentioned. Nice Strawman argument.the eagles lost their best player wentz as well as their best lineman in Peters. losing wentz is almost the equivalent of losing Brady for us. it worked out fine for them.
If you actually read my posts, you know that I don't have any inside info. That's why I'm not actually JUDGING Belichick's call. Because we clearly don't have all the information. So, instead of throwing sh!t at the wall like the monkeys have, I chose to be level headed about it and wait for more information. Because it's clear there is so much we don't know.Well we are limited by what we know. Do you have some inside info? BB said before and after the game it was football related. If there was some major disciplinary issue why was he even in uniform?? He was in for as many snaps as anyone on D as anyone all year and today never got off the bench.
Please show me where I threw sh!t against the wall. No player interviewed after the game has even hinted Butler not playing was disciplinary. If that turns up fine. Hrowever why was he even in uniform if there was some major issue? Seems we could have used a 5th receiver, no?If you actually read my posts, you know that I don't have any inside info.

Okay lets say KVN was our best player and JH was #2 what does that say about our roster building strategy? Why was Malcolm good enough in the last 17 games to be our #2 corner and tonight be benched? I liken it to the de-nutting of Welker in the Jets game. Other players recognize!SMH..
Yes, because whomever built the roster should have expected:
- Alan Branch would work himself into the doghouse and never get out
- Derek Rivers would suffer a season-ending knee injured during TC.
- Hightower's season would end prematurely.
- Shea McClellin wouldn't be able to come off the IR
- Cyrus Jones would blow his knee out
- Malcolm Butler would do something to get benched
You only have so much money to go around. Do they need to improve? Sure. Every team does. Even the Eagles. But let's stop acting like they went 3-13 for the 3rd consecutive season. They lost in the SB because they didn't play their best game.
NO ONE, not even Butler, can say that his being on the field would have changed the game from an L to a W. The game just would have been different. No one can know how it would have been.
OH. Harrison wasn't the best Front 7 guy tonight. Contrary to Collinsworth. Van Noy played a better game than Harrison, but only barely. Neither was perfect.
Consider he is the guy who stopped Lynch on the 1 yard line before "the pick", then he was also the guy who sacked Ryan out of the field goal range which started "the comeback", safe to say we needed him tonight.They need better players. They weren't that great last year but they had Hightower. On to next season I guess.
