You're spot on about the pass rush. It needs to be addressed big time. Watt was superb and Smith was very solid but we got little to nothing from everyone else. With teams scheming to stop Watt other guys should have been freed up to make plays and it didn't happen.
We'll continue to struggle against the top QBs until we ramp up our pass rush. The Giants have owned the Pats I recent years with a rather pedestrian secondary and a fearsome pass rush. The blueprint is out there we just need to follow it.
