A caller on the Michael Kay show made a point i never considered before, could the fact that our defense is on the field so much tiring them out. In other words is part of the reason theyre getting burned on plays is that there simply too tired at points to make the plays. Last game we had, i believe, 8, 3 and outs. Our defense was constantly being driven on by Tom Brady and as we learned from the Giants that can be exhausting to the point of injury. There were times it just looked like they missed basic tackles, something that they normal don't do. Could our defensive woes be a consequence of our lack of running game?
