    The defense is a joke, giving Brady too much time to throw receivers running wide open. Fire Him

    One game.

    But do you know who's been around this entire soft cushion era?

    Mike Tomlin and Carnell Lake.

    My ire is already building....

    Are you actually surprised that the pass defense is garbage? Where you been all Pre Season? They are actually doing better than I thought they would. I figured they would give up about 4 TD's by Halftime.

    I don't think the afternoon cushion is an issue right now Ray they aren't getting pressure in front of Brady with 6 guys and the secondary isn't able to cover a cold. Add in the illegal picks and missed assignments and Brady looks godlike.

    Butler isn't a miracle worker. Not many DCs look good with the worst secondary in the league.

    1st game of the season and you have not enough men on the field?

    I wouldn't be as mad if you had too many!

    Hard to get pressure when WRs are allowed to run free so the QB can just throw quickly all day long.

    Or when we leave WRs and Gronk(!) uncovered completely.

    Brady's quick release, accuracy, and ability to diagnose the defense seems to be the difference. Everyone knew the defense was going to be an issue in this game. The offense isn't getting it done up the level of expectation.

    Well Butler had the whole offseason to come up with something creative, it looks like the same crappy defense no surprises.

    When you guys learn that it's not about the DC but the players you will be better off. Coaches don't usually make that much of a difference unless their players are good enough. The Steelers continue to rebuild the defense.

    I can't even comment on how bad this Defense looks!! Butler needs to make 2 adjustments at half-time cover Edelman and Gronk. Defense is out of sync and confused.

    How hard is it for a LB to get up on Gronk at the line of scrimmage and jam him? He's running untouched :facepalm:

    Give Butler a chance. He has a lot of new guys. The defense is still 10-15 yards behind the receiver, this has been going on forever.

    Belichick knows the Steeler D better than Butler does.

    Was there any Cover-2 tonight? 4-3 hybrid looks? 1-gap? I am seriously asking because it seems like a waste if they didn't use them.

    It's a good thing they used 4 first round draft picks on those LBs, a complete nonfactor. Boykin can't be any worse than Blake, or maybe he doesn't know the defense yet. I thought Butler was supposed to simplify the defense they look confused and unprepared.

    but remember the two biggest problems on defense are gone now withe Troy's retirement and DL's man crush so what you are seeing isn't real
