The Giants have won 2 of the past 5 with great D. Green Bay -- awesome D in 2010-11. Steelers -- top D in 2008-09. Saints were's great in 2009-10 when they won, but held the Colts to 17 in their SB win.
I know the "experts" say it's an offense league now, but to me, I still see teams with great defenses winning Super Bowls.
I agree and I think BB does also after looking at this years draft and FA.
The pats got old on D in 2007, and with the exception of Wilfork had to totally rebuild the defense. It takes some time to build a D thru the draft, The jets built their D with a lot of help from FA. The results come quicker going the FA route.
I think the D this year will be middle of the pack in yds and close to top 10 in points allowed.
