    Defining it matters,
    8 of the last 10 SB champs were a top 10 D, 1 was 11.

    so when I say it not as simple, you’re already proving my point.
    is a D better because of the yardage they prevent or the points?

    And I agree the league has changed. Scoring is up, passing is way up, D’s can’t do the same beating they used, but the best still win in most cases.

    The Titans defense is not the Ravens old school run stuffing 3-4 type D where you ask the front 3 to just occupy the blockers and let the LBers run free...it is a penetrating 3-4 as the base and then we are in a 4 man front about 40% of the time.

    The guys that you should pay are guys who command double teams because they are the guys who make other players around them better. Big Jeff requires double teams or he will ruin your backfield.

    It’s a whole lot easier to find a defensive lineman that requires double teams than an elite pass rusher or wide receiver.

    The point is when you have a guy that requires double teams you pay him...just like the Chiefs did for Chris Jones. Jones makes both DEs and Lbers better.

    Complete exaggeration but I get your point, at this point he’s a solid to good player for most of the season. Definitely a starting caliber player on a good team but not the game changer he used to be.

    ppg allowed vs ppg scored Superbowl champions past ten years:
    Chiefs 16th 1st
    Rams 15th 8th
    Buccs 8th 4th
    Chiefs 7th 5th
    Pat's 7th 4th
    Eagles 4th 3rd
    Pat's 1st 3rd
    Broncos 4th 19th
    Pat's 8th 4th
    Hawks 1st 9th

    2/10 teams had a better D than O. And one of the two still had a top 10 offense lol. Defense wins championships is dead. Yes you still need a capable or even good or great D but if you're going to prioritize one side of the ball it is 100% offense.

    We’re just going to disagree here.

    those stats do a great job showing the importance of D.

    that also doesn’t address most of the questions proposed in my previous response.
