Belichick has only 1-true pass rusher on the outside in Jones. Niko is ok but not above average IMO. They only have 1 guy who can push the pocket in Wilfork.
Additionally, they have young corners who struggle. They need to just start Denard and Talib nd have Arrington play inside. They probably need to send Jones, Wilfork, Hightower, and Niko on every passing down at the minimum.
Their injuries at safety have hurt them as well. However, their O doesn't do a great job of closing out games.
