I guess you are such a Texan historian you didn't spot the reference to 2009 and 2010 in which our defense was middling and then horrible.
But let's examine your theory, offensive plays:
1043 - 2009 mediocre defense
1029 - 2010 crap defense
1046 - 2011 really good defense
Man those are some wild swings. That is 1 qtr of football over the course of a season or to put it another way 1 play per game - hardly a stat padding dynamic.. Want to try another theory on? You can stick another "you're smart enough" comment in.
