    I'm a pats fan, just curious as to what has lead to the lack in run defense on your guys part lately? Is it all after Ryan Shazier went down? Or are other injuries causing this as well? Last 2 weeks the YPC is much higher than usual for this defense. I was honestly more worried about this defense 2 weeks ago.

    run defense has sucked all year, but yeah losing Shaz now it's even worse.

    Shazier being out is definitely a massive hit. Backups are not at the same level.

    Players don't want to tackle properly. For that matter tackle at all.

    I believe you decline in the defense period. They keep getting burned on the long ball. And they say Tomlin is a defensive minded coach!?!? Guess they meant he doesn’t mind getting burnt cause this Dfence sux again. We look like the wawawawaterboy!
