The observations were sound...I'm not a fan of Marty, but what he said was true. Pats barely squeaked by yesterday too...they almost got beaten by a #2 QB for crying out loud!
I think you're right that their D still doesn't look good, but I think you're marginalizing a victory over one of the toughest teams in the NFC, who are one of the few teams that can exist with their backup QB... they still have a good o-line and run the ball extremely effectively... and that's an Atlanta team that owned the Eagles at home this year.
This was a big win against the Falcons, with or without Vick.
