Rex would rather win with defense then to have a team that averages 30 pts /gm on offense. He needs to wake up and understand that it can work both ways. Early last year he was pissed at Shotty for allowing the O to throw too much, Hey Rex wake up that's how you win the NFL today. You can agrue that they don't have the talent on O to play that way , and its true when the coach & GM basically neglect that side of the team.
I agree with you 100%. However, let me add that we need to bring in a true offensive-minded coach from a staff like NO or GB, not frauds like NE. History has enough examples of failures from the NE tree; that organization's perceived success is due to two factors -- Tammy and Spygate.
