I'd fix two things.

First, I'd abandon the soft D we often see when the Pats try to kill the clock too early. I want more agressive blitzes and I want tight coverage on the outside, not hanging back trying to keep the play in front of them. It's schematic more than personnel failure at this point, imo. Roll the dice and don't let anybody get any rhythm. Crush somebody for a change. The talent is there. We need to create more chaos and the rope-a-dope doesn't do that.

Second, I don't think the "O line" is responsible for a lot of the play breakdowns as much as people think they are. I believe a lot of plays are getting blown up because our backup TEs and backs just aren't blocking anybody. I would think that after sorting through 10 TEs and 6 fullbacks this year they would have found one of each that can take on a LB. We need a big improvement there and I don't know if the guys we have can get it done. Find somebody. Stat.
