When a guy like Chad Henne (and Marinara sauce) can stand in the pocket, recite the pledge of allegiance, do his taxes and then find the open man, it spells doom for the Pats young secondary. Whose fault is this? Well it all falls on the pass rush. The guys whom are the highest paid on the team: Adalius Thomas, Derrick Burgesss, Jarvais Green, Ty Warren and Tully Banta Cain. Tully is off the hook, hes been playing above his head and seems like the only guy on the Pats who touches the quarterback throughout the game.
For all you others on that list.....YOU NEED TO STEP IT UP!
The Pats have a young defensive backfield who cant cover a wideout for 5 seconds never mind 15 seconds. Give us some damn pressure on the quarterback please. Make the QB make a decision. With out a pass rush the Pats wont get out of the first round. Guys like Petyon, Rivers, Palmer will chew this defense up and spit it out if they can read the newspaper in the pocket and then throw the ball.
The Pats have two QBs coming up that they should handle easily in Matt Moore and Ryan Fitzpatrick. Sounds like two guys I met at the bar last weekend but no they are NFL quarterbacks. So if this Pass Rush can not get to these two and make them make mistakes, we have a problem and a big one. So this goes out to you pass rush, STEP IT UP! or the Pats season is done......
