If we invested this much into our offense, and our defense was as good as the 9ers, I don't think we're complaining about our QB and analyzing the Ravens right now.
Does it matter if chris Meyers wasn't a first round pick if he's a pro bowler?
Does it matter that od wasn't a first round pick if he's one of the better te's in the league?
Arian has been better than gore. Andre is one of the best of all time and he still actually has some juice left...
And that best defense in football gave up a bunch of points last time they played NE. They gave up a bunch of points to gb too.
In the last 5 weeks the least amount of points they've given up was 27. They've given up 40+ twice in that time span.
Now this is the defense you call the best. Assuming we can even match the "best", we'd still need an explosive offense led by a qb that could rack up points.
