    Exactly, the only thing the Titans can hope for on defense is that they come up with an occasional stop and maybe a turnover.

    It's all on the offense to win in the playoffs. Any contribution from the defense is an unexpected bonus.

    That is what I interpreted from what DW was trying to convey, the defense sucks, but this offense may be able to overcome.

    The O will have to overcome the D in order to win in the playoffs. The challenge is if the D continues to struggle on 3rd downs, will the O have enough chances to outscore the other team? This is where the D has to make a play or two at the end of the game. I timely sack, a pass break up, a strip sack, a run stuff, just a few plays made is all the team will need.

    isn't that the point of a forum

    and saying our defense will "beat" a team, is delusional

    if we win, it's not going to be a 13-10 game.. it'll be another 30-27 game.. which means the defense didn't do anything as usual

    the defense won't win a game for us, they will just suck less than the opponent's defense

    Problem is, we’re not going to be able to put up 40 points on most of the defenses we’re going to see in the playoffs.

    The Defense held them to 27 while we scored 30 = a win...isnt that the point?

    OK, but the current point is a valid one that you apparently don’t dispute.

    His post didn’t say the defense will win. He said a team with our defense has and can beat a playoff team. He is right. Not sure what there is to dispute.
