Not a time to point finger, this team has a lot of issues. A fat bastard in the middle is just one of them :)
Look, I'm not looking for a fat guy just to plug the whole and break double teams like you see in a 3-4. I'm looking for a true 0 tech that can play the 4-3 defense.
At one time Phat Pat was the best. Before him I really like Jerry Ball and I wouldn't call any of them slow.
Wilfork is the prototypical 3-4 NT that you just said you weren't looking for my friend.
All I am saying is I like the younger, not- as- fat- as -Pat guys we have now and yes, they are faster than Pat and more able to pressure the QB. Nothing more, nothing less.
Trust me, Suh can (and does) line up and play the 0 tech in Lionsville.
On a side note......Have you looked at what defense the Pats are running this year? Have you seen Vince drop back in coverage? Have you seen Vince batting balls and getting INT's. Try again on that one my friend.
And Yes, I watch the Pats play whenever I can and have seen Wilfork playing in a 4-3 and saw his fat ass int the ball and run with it. That still doesn't change my mind or negate the point I was making that I am just fine with DT's that are not as rotund as PW.
he wants PW back, because he's played what, 6 years beside the guy?
It'd be like if you worked the cube over from some guy who did a damn good job, and was your good friend. You'd probably want him back too, but does that mean somebody else can't do his job? Absolutely not.
Been proven wrong time and time again.Quote:
but without that "Guy"/"Warpig" this defense just isn't ever going to be "Right".
In fact, aside from the bears game, there' hasn't been any issues with our D. they were #5 vs. the run, and respectable vs. the pass. They were leading the league in sacks, What more do you want?
In fact, we were MORE productive until last week without a "warpig" than we were with.
