Does Brady really need an elite defense to win the Super Bowl? Of the last ten winners, only three teams had a top 16 defense the year they won.

To add another point:

2012 Patriots Defense Rank Right Now: 7

The offense is looking better, the defense is playing better, they have a running game, and they lost their three games this season by a combined 4 points.
Pats issues were never defensive honestly...They gave up only 17 in the last 2 SB..Pats biggest issue imo is balance, which is why they won the 1st 3 and lost the last 2..Even Green Bay developed balance in the playoffs which propelled them to the SB win..Starks ran for a good 300+ in 4 playoff games that year..Pats don't need a 100 yd rusher every game, but one to keep defenses honest and not tee off on Brady so much..
