Just using the fact that alot of guys are bringing up - we are a young team. Well the Patriots have the youngest defense & while numbers & stats bear that out & say they are not good they manage to win. It is not always because they have Tom Brady either. As young as they are they seem to make plays at critical times. When we talk about how young we are as a team it is with the assumption that we will progress ... I am starting to wonder. Does anyone think the Patriot defense will regress?? They are sitting with a deck full of draft picks to be a made by a staff with a decent track record . no you dont hit on them all but their average is pretty good. They are playing in & winning meaningful games in December year after year while we are once again questioning our QB & our staff as well as a some other skilled positions. Its tiresome already & for all we get excited about in the off season (me included) really the outcome has not changed in quite a few years now.
Missed oppurtunity as the title of the thread says .... year after year now.
Young defense but it helps when you have Bellicheck building the defense.
We have Dan Henning building up a young offense.
