Tell me how MW & DeMeco would've helped with this.
Brady wouldn't have scored 41 points if we had a good day from Mario Williams.
I don't know if 28 points would have been enough though.
I'm not saying we don't have problems on offense, just saying our problems on defense was not having a replacement for Mario Williams. I said last year that chances are either Brooks Reed or Connor Barwin were not going to maintain. I didn't think neither of them would.
I also didn't expect to replace Demeco with Bradie James & have Cushing go out early in the season.
