This comment made me crack up for 3 reasons:
1. It is a random but true statement(1a. I love palindromes)
2. Its from Raiderjoe
3. He spelled palindrome correctly

"There is probably more evidence that Smith does not regularly lock onto his targets, but the fact that the Jets converted 11 of 21 third downs against a Bill Belichick defense is all the evidence we really need."

It's been a while since Belichick's defenses were actually consistently good.

Maybe, but they are pretty good this year. Fifth in pass defense DVOA.

Belichick's defense was great this year until it lost it's best player at all 3 levels. Injuries happen to every team, but that defense has really lost it's teeth.
