    that would be the offense carrying the load

    for the defense to carry, the offense has to suck and we still win

    not sure why this is difficult

    giving up 27 points is not "holding" anything, it's getting abused

    I guess LAR defense, one of the leagues best got "abused" a few times this year according to your logic

    I didn't say the defense could carry us....read the OP

    We might beat a few playoff teams, maybe, but when we lose, defense will be the reason.

    win...the...TO...battle. Must do it.
    Don't spot teams 19, 20, 31 points.

    This team has beaten playoff teams, this year, including some that they may face.

    I can’t believe I’m saying this but if the Titans D can keep teams from scoring more than 30 points, I like our chances.

    27 points in today’s NFL especially this season isn’t getting abused. It’s not great. But it’s not abused, Across the board defense was down this year. The most points in NFL history was scored this year.

    Biggest thing for me is I'd rather give up a big play and let our offense have the ball than give up long drives where our offense simply does not get enough snaps. That is why it makes more sense, especially with the players we have to blitz like crazy.

    Answer this. Can Evans or Long cover better than they can blitz? Since they are decent blitzers and tacklers and suck to high heaven covering someone the answer is obvious.

    Being aggressive does give up some big plays but on 3rd down we absolutely suck anyway. So take a chance we can get a sack, cause a turn over or send Jackson to the hospital. For me it is 85 Bears all day long. We have guys like Evans, Long and King who might be better at that game anyway. Byard and Vaccaro as well.
