And you are the one taking a simplistic view. I clearly said there are a bunch of factors involved while you're convinced there's just one. Not even sure what the hell you're talking about with that. Reading comprehension isn't that tough.
The game is about scoring more points than the other team not about allowing the fewest yards.
You may even prefer allowing a FG in garbage time in exchange for a 7 min drive when up by 2+ scores for example.
Sorry no one explained this to you.
IF I had a team that gave up say 500 yards a game but due to turnovers and allowing only FG's and no touchdowns, then averaged 12 pts per game allowed, you would say that was a great D, I exaggerate of course but hopefully you will get the point.
