I read the whole thing. Now, name one of those offensive plays that you mentioned that was NOT a defensive play for the other team. Or if you prefer, name one of those plays that was more important for the offense than it was for the defense. The plays in a game can't possibly be more important for one team than they are for the other. The plays made by the QB (pass offense) can't possibly be any more or less important than the ones made by the pass defense. They're the same plays. In 2012, teams whose QB had at least a 100 rating went 135-33-1. Guess the record of teams whose pass defense allowed at least a 100 rating. Teams with our rank in offensive passer rating the last two seasons finish 11-5 on average. Want to know why we're 8-8 the last two seasons? Because teams with our rank in defensive passer rating and rushing TD finish 4-12 on average. We're a 4-12 team with an 11-5 passing offense.
