shift of focus
you guys have to understand this team has taken a turn from a defensive team to an offensive team, it'a hard to grasp since we have been a defensive team for so long, our defense will never be as good as our offense as long as we keep teh current offense together, this is a good thing, everyone says defense wins super bowls, bullsh*t, only the best def in the league wins super bowls, look at playoff teams over the last few years, 80% of them have been offense oriented teams, yes defense oriented teams won the last few super bowls but they were the BEST defenses in the NFL that year and each time they faced an offense style team, offenses are what get you into the playoffs consistently, just last year atlanta NYG 49ers oakland steelers(who have made the switch as well) NYJ colts clev were more offense oriented teams, the rams during their dominating 3 years had a decent defense at best, everyone here seems to be overly concerned about our defense when i think we have made sufficient moves already to improve our defense enough to get us over the hump, i think this is a move in the right direction, i mean after all we have been a defensive team since manning and look at what that's gotten us, our moves in draft to pick O-lineman is step to maintaining our offensive stance

I can\'t agree with you hear Rusta. The focus of the league is more offensive oriented, true. And you will need a good offense to go places in this league. However, the best defense in the league has won two out of the last four Super Bowls. The best offense only won one of four. Furthermore, the team with the better defense has won the last three Super Bowls. Defense still wins championships.
