Shula also deserves some credit for our stout D.

Key word here, SOME. Please dont get up in arms. Why you ask? Simple, nothing lifts a defense like a offense that keeps the ball nearly an entire quarter. God I love ground and pound, clock control offenses. Forget this basketball style, shoot out type offenses. I just love seeing offenses like ours that is super stingy with that football and doesnt like to give it back and just pounds it. I love seeing opposing defenses winded and tired and I love seeing our defense on the becnch relaxing for nearly an entire quarter.

This isnt the NBA, scores in the NFL arent suppose to be 42-55. Get the fug outta here with that mess. I dont think our D would have been as good with Chud still here because you just cant underestimate how much of a impact it has on a D that can rest on the bench for aslong as possible, and with ground and pound Shula ball, our D can do just that and im loving every minute of it.

Actually there is some merit to this. We are #1 in the NFL in time of possession per drive. The result is that our defense has faced the lowest number of possessions in the entire NFL.

But our defense has been really really good as well. Not taking anything away from the defense. But the less the other team has the ball, the less yardage and points they will be able to get.

Our defense has been awesome though, but it pains me to say that CP has a point.

Indeed. Sell all of your stocks, because the apocalypse is upon us, but he definitely has a point.

Yep but some don't want to admit it. They've been told by ESPN blowhards for years that the NFL is trending to a passing league and so every team must pass the ball 70% of the time.

Time of possession is important but you have to score in this league. Especially against teams like the Aints, Fudge Packers, Etc.

If you finish a 9 minute drive with a TD like we did in the Vikings, that's even better against teams like the Saints, Packers, etc. because that takes away their time on offense, and as good as those teams are offensively they don't score every drive.

Again, I am in no way trying to discredi our D and Sean Mcd, they are the key. There is just no denying the importance of keeping your D as rested as possible during the game. The Chargers D isn elite but if you watched the Chargers Colts game the same thing happened.

Exactly. Offensive players are more cnditioned to be able to stay on the field that long and not get as winded, it just depletes the opposing D so rapidly when they face an offense that controls clock like we do. Oh and not to mention on top of that, when the D finally does force a 4th down on us, we go for it and get it. Thats what I call twisting the knife in the D
