Meriweather: 'Everybody makes mistakes'

FOXBORO -- Brandon Meriweather has been the lightning rod for the storm of criticism that has hit the Patriots defense this year.

 

Whether it was blown coverage in Week 2 in a 28-14 loss to the Jets, when Mark Sanchez went off in the second half or it was the D's inability to put away the likes of Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Bills last week, Meriweather has been pointed to as one of the reasons the team is giving up gobs of yards.

 

Meriweather has - for all intents and purposes - been yanked from his starting free safety job and now just plays in certain situations, sharing responsibilities with Patrick Chung.

 

"My feelings have nothing to do with this team," Meriweather said. "Whether it's pissing me off or it's not, that has nothing to do with this team. The coaches are gonna make the best decisions for the team and I'm gonna go with it. Everybody makes mistakes," Meriweather...

Peter King of Sports Illustrated and NBC Sports checked in for his weekly appearance on the Dale & Holley show Friday. King addressed the Patriots' defensive struggles.

 

"What really has surprised me is, they're basically averaging giving up 27 points a game," King said. "That's eight points more than Cleveland, that's 15 points more than Kansas City, that's 11 points more than the Rams. The Patriots right now, and it's shown with how Darius Butler got yanked, that [Bill] Belichick is going to be patient up to a point. But I think it's showing the one thing the Patriots should have done in the offseason and didn't do, is really address their pass rush situation. … This is a team that needs to get after the quarterback better and needs to cover better."

 

Looking at the Logan Mankins situation, King said the Patriots should be eager to get something for the holdout offensive lineman. "If I...
