How about in NO when the offense had to drop 33 damn points just to keep pace with the saints?
A good defense can keep you in a game (hell offense can too if it's potent enough) but the offense 999999999999.9 % of the time is going to be the side of the ball that wins you the game by putting up points. We've seen in Wade's previous stops as an HC, his offenses have always been the achilles heels to his teams.
Stop acting like Wade's defense is the Gritz Blitz defense.
Just to accentuate your point. Our defense limited opponents to 17 pts/game this year. However, they only put ten points - one grab & go TD and two safeties - all year long. Even if they'd done that scoring in the same game, we would have only beat the Colts or the Titans 10-7 or the Buccs 10-9. Those are the only teams we held to single digits all year.
It's the combo that's brought this year's success; not one side or the other.
Where's that peanut butter/chocolate pic?
