It may be simple 'regression towards the mean' type natural progression, but sometimes it seems like Wade doesn't have the ability to adapt coverage to who he is facing. His defenses absolutely destroy sub par QBs (poor Andy Dalton, for example). But we have consistently, both this year and last year, been shredded by elite QBs. We played Brady twice. In those two games, we gave up 41 and 42 points. We gave up 7 TDs. We got a total of 2 (3?) sacks.

It seemed like Wade's defense is boom or bust against guys like Brady. 3 and out or touchdown drive.

I don't know if this is Kubiak, the defense getting tired from being on the field so long, or adjustment issues by Wade
