why doesn't the league just hand the Patriots the undefeated season already
Because, like the rest of us, they're waiting for the Steelers to beat them down.

I do not think all-out blitzing is the way to go.  I think Beardy struggles more when you take away his downfield options, and, frankly, we don't have a D that's built to get after the QB.  As odd as it seems to say this, the strength of our D is in the secondary play.

Seemed to be the way to go last night.  They knocked the crap out of Brady.

I agree we don't get enough pressure to do that.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

I agree with Pens for the most part: our pass rush isn't getting to the QBs often enough, and our secondary needs to blanket.  But we still need to spring it every once in a while, just to see what happens.  They'll expect it third and long, so let's run it some other situation.

They knocked him around, for sure.  But, they did it rushing 3 or 4 most of the time with an occasional blitz or delayed blitz.  To me, that game was the polar opposite of the Philly game where they sent at least 5 rushers 75% of the time or so.

We suck because our drafts have been THE SUCK.
