what kind of question is this?
first...if any team is unable to get pressure on the other team's QB they are in trouble. so silly little question right there.
secondly, what makes anyone think that would happen against the pats? we have the best front in the league. the best front seven in the league. the pats OL isn't as good as they used to be. the pats offense isn't as good as it used to be. brady isn't as good as he used to be...esp. under pressure, which he absolutely has been a lot and will be under a lot next monday night.
i have no doubts that our defense can get into the backfield next week. our defense is clicking on all cylinders and the pats aren't. seems like a perfect situation to stuff brady early and often.
i think our D will do just fine.
more than that, i think our defense just faced the best defense they are likely to face the rest of the year. the pats D isn't stout enough to keep this team back the way the seahawk and 49ers did.
brady is going to be frustrated a lot on monday and it's going to be made worse because i think he'll be playing from behind most of the game.
