Not meaning to split hairs, but can you develop a "superbowl winning" defense if they don't actually win the Superbowl?
I thought about saying that but I said it that way because the bears defense and Rivera played a genius defensive scheme, they upheld and Rivera adjusted to some of the most diverse play calling from Manning. If I remember correctly and close to a perfect year too. The loss was due to the offense and Grossman INTs, so it was more stressing that than being literal. Rivera had schemed a winning SB scheme hows that .
The point was more to get out of the Fox state of mind. Fox would have never signed a TE over a DT or even CB because those were not his key pieces. With Rivera, we are seeing a shift in the players that will fulfill those key piece roles and we should just trust Rivera.
