defense is more coaching, offenses is more players, for example offenses need a good QB, there is no way especially in the NFL to scheme around having a shitty QB.

Defense on the other hand you can have average players all around and still scheme yourself to a top 10 maybe even 5 defense with the right coach.

I have to agree with this sentiment. The first thing an offense needs is an elite QB. Not mediocre or average but elite. There are 32 teams and I guarantee not all have elite QB's. Carolina is lucky because I believe Cam is on his way there. He is not there yet but on his way. What I am saying is that it is a mixture on offense between coach and QB. Coaching can help with development but it can also get that coach fired ie. Jay Cutler in Chicago and Denver. The QB also has to have a drive to want to improve and be considered great.

It takes talent and coaching. It takes coaching what talent you have while you acquire talent to run what you want. I think both coordinators and Rivera have stressed they were going to adapt the scheme to fit the players and have done that pretty well. Rivera can run a 3-4 or a 4-3 but uses a 4-3 base because that is what our talent calls for. Our offense is built around Newton and what he does well. I see pretty good halftime adjustments and good initial gameplans. We could improve on time management and late game decisions but overall I think Rivera has done a decent job with what he was given in 2010. We are much better off going into 2013 then we were going in 2011.
