Some reflections after the Super Bowl
The team with the most points wins the game. That sounds like a smart-arse comment, but it's the truth. A smothering defense does you no good if the offense can't score. A high powered offense lighting up the scoreboard only works if the defense keeps the other team's offense from doing the same. Balance and complimentary football wins games and championships.
We've gone years with an elite offense paired with a historically terrible defense. Now we have an above average offense and an above average defense. We can beat any team, any day, anywhere. That doesn't mean that we will win. I just means that we have the roster to win. When we don't win, I always remind myself that the other team is full of professional football players and coaches who get paid to win, just like our players and coaches.
