you guys are trying to have your cake and eat it too.
We are now watching a offensive driven league.. playing under a set of rules designed to help offenses. Defenses, even the good ones are going to give up points during periods of a ball game to competent offenses. When you only give up 16 points (which is more than good enough to win) and they give your offense good field position (with a crap load of 3 and outs) it's their job to pick up the slack and put points on the board, especially one that has many weapons as ours.
We're not "having our cake and eating it to"... we're just being realistic and can see which side of the ball is playing better during this short season.
