From salty's thread

7 of the 8 top defensive teams in the NFL were still playing last weekend in the divisional round (only the Saints were not)

Only 2 of the top 8 offensive teams in the NFL were still playing last weekend.

Both stats are PPG

Food for thought.

points win the game but they don't paint a good picture on proving great defenses are better than great offenses.

This is because the offense affects the amounts of points that are scored by the opposing team. If the take an early lead or if they hold the ball for long amounts of time that helps out the defense. Yards per play would be a better stat IMO. It specifies the defense better.

Using the same 8 teams for original comparison purposes, last year it was split 4 and 4. 4 of 8 were in the top 8 offensively and 4 of the 8 were in the top defensively. If you want to add those together you have 11 of 16 were top defensively and only 6 of 16 were top offensively.

What are you taking your chances with in this "offensive era" of football?

The best D would be nice, it'd probably get you a first round bye and a game in the divisional round. With just a minor upgrade over Clausen we'd have a shot at the conference championship and SB.

Don't ignore the facts.

Pretty much if you look at recent history you need either

A) An above average QB who can make plays and win games, a very good running game, and a TOP Nfl defense.

or

B) A Top NFL QB + An above average defense.

Pretty much all of the recent successful teams (Superbowl) fit in 1 of those 2 categories.

Neither is going to guarantee you a superbowl because there are other very good teams in the NFL, and in the Playoffs some very good teams lose to other very good teams.... But when you have a team built like that it gives you a chance to constantly be a factor.

haha yes, clearly TheRealDeal wants us to start Clausen next season!

It's important to note that playing stout defense with a good running game isn't necessarily "living in the past" like some have said... but obviously, not everything thinks that.
