I'm suppressing my anger in this post, so as to bring some more perspective here.
Our defense (penalties...don't go there Axe.... don't you go there...) looked like last year's defense. But some here are jumping ship because this game was our real test against a real passing defense.
The way I see it, it was one game. I want to see more games before putting out any labels. Remember that the Niner's defense was also bad today, against Ponder no less. One game is not enough to panic over a defense, just like two games are not enough to full judge them.
We still have no REAL clue of what our defense is this season. We know what they are capable of. But we should take it one game at a time, and not call out judgements based on one game.
I liked what I saw out of McCourty, Mayo, Love, and Jones imo was just held on so many occasions.
But hey, the refs were pretty much bad all around (Don't go there dammit!). I'd like to see CUnningham start over Nink now. Nink isn't really doing anything right now, and Cunningham is forcing double teams in the middle.... THE MIDDLE.
One thing is for sure, I would not want to be the Bills right now. The pats are PISSED. BB is pissed, Spikes is pissed, I'm pretty sure Brady is pissed. They are going to go after the Bills. They are looking for blood. I'll be surprised if they lose two more games this year. No doubt they are outraged.
