Your aurgement is proven wrong.. Do the patriots not have the best offense every year? How many years in a row have they been beaten by teams with good defenses? They go into the playoffs at top seed, yet havent won a bowl since 05. Are the giants backbone not their defense? They dont have the best, but they win when they get in. did they not win 2 bowls past few years?
Werent you a sanchez defender?
Yes, their D did lose it for them, as all very good D's will eventually do. Our D was great in 2010 when we were getting clobbered by PIT. You can not win in the NFL with a great defense and a deficient offense...which is exactly what we had in 2010. A stout D will eventually get gashed. If your O is not capable of putting up a big game at any time you will eventually lose...just like DEN did tonight. DEN's offense struggled tonight and they lost. You can not rely on defense. Eventually that reliance will knock you out.
Yes, I was a Sanchez supporter. I wanted him to succeed probably more than anyone. I wanted that because I knew we weren't going to win SB's counting on Revis and our D all the time. I knew we needed a QB that could come through and put points on the board. We needed Sanchez to be that guy, and because of that I rooted for him and supported him like hell. He failed. We can debate all the reasons for years but the bottom line is he failed and because of that, even though we have a great defense, we suck. So here we sit with a top 10 D in the last 4 years and NOTHING to show for it.
