I agree with that old saying, offense fills seats but defense wins championships. We've had stingy defenses, we we're #5 in 2007 and barely made the playoffs...with the almighty VY at the helm. In 11 of the last 14 seasons, our defense ranked in the top 10 against the run and ranked fourth in rushing defense over that period only behind Pittsburgh, Baltimore, and San Diego. So we've had a stout defense and still can't get over the hump. I also agree with Troy Aikman when he recently said "In the last 10 years, it's become a passer's league. You better be able to throw the football if you want to win in this league.'' Even the Steelers which has long been known as the model of a "run first" "stingy defense" smash mouth football team has made a transformation in that direction over the past few years and coincidentally they have 2 SB rings since their transformation after Cower went 14 years without one with the old philosophy. Is there no one else out there can even say "maybe this is not a coincidence"?? I'm saying that I don't think we'll start competing on a consistent elite level till we make a few adjustments ourselves and I don't see VY being the guy that can do that for us.
