If you're going to quote me at least use my entire post. I also said: "No way man, the vital role to a good D is a front 7 that can generate pressure. How hard is that?" You do realize those defensive backs would look like hot garbage if their front 7 did not generate any pressure? It is impossible to cover a receiver forever, no matter how good the DB is. So, to answer your question, YES it does prove it was won in the trenches.
