Strong infrared divergences prevent standard spin glass field theory to be meaningful, at least below d = 6. A mechanism that softens infrared divergences is displayed, that, via the existence of a sea of zero or near zero modes, relates softening in infrared divergences and in the small x behavior of Parisi order parameter q(x). This mechanism may, hopefully, allow the building of a meaningful spin glass field theory in the condensed phase.
