Obsi, if Schaub got us 2 with a gimpy foot, Watt couldn't get us one additional win. We lost how many games by 1 score? I'm not hating on Watt, by any means. Just pointing out that an elite QB is much more important than an elite DE. The whole defensive unit has to play at an elite level (not be all elite players, mind you) to have an impact like Seattle last year, the Ravens, Bears, Giants( LT era mostly), Steelers and Cowboys.
Heck, look at what Brady has accomplished with no name WR's for most of his career. Think what he could've done with a WR like AJ or Megatron for his whole career.
What was the defenses average per game pre/post Cushing??
