tobyd77 Posted February 27, 2012 Share Posted February 27, 2012 After watching this team for 4 years now since Matt,Smitty and TD got here we wittness them adding offensive piece after piece after piece after piece and was hoping that they could cheat on defense adding a big name just in 2010 to the secondary without attending to him to help him fit into the scheme did not work. I believe that they finally got it that this defense has to be attended to and tweaked more for them to create more scoring opportunities for the offense instead of the other way around the way that they were trying to do it by adding all of these offensive pieces for Ryan to play with.They started by going out and getting Nolan and that was an indication IMO that told me that they plan on the defense providing this offense with a scoring chance to bury the game away.if we are going to win a championship it is going to ride on the shoulders of this defense and not the offense and I've been saying this for a while now but I think that Smitty and TD have heard my cry.however I don't think that all the splash defensive lineman we would like up front such as Mario Williams will not happen but I did see from the ajc that the Falcons may be interested in bringing a GA native back home to usRobert Mathis.If the D becomes the D that I know it can be than a championship will be well within grasp but if we try an continue to ride on the offense we will run out of gas again.I liked they old patriot way when they were winning championships and that was when they had a defense and they have not won a championship since but have made two SB appearances and that is it.TD,Smitty ,and Nolan get us a real elite defense and we will go far into the playoffs.
