And I hate when people say "it's a passing league". Yes, it is...all the rules favor the offense. That's what inherently makes a corner like Revis LESS valuable, because he can't use his physicality to compensate once his athleticism wears out.
So why do you hate it if you agree with it?

Teams with great defenses have won far more Super Bowls going back to when the league supposedly became a passing league than all the pass-happy offenses.
People saying 'it's a passing league' are just another part of the Fantasy Football generation who dismisses what happens on the field because ~stats~.
What does having a great defense have to do with their offenses being not pass happy? When the giants won, their offense was most definitely pass happy. Ditto the packers. Same with the saints. The Patriots, thankfully have not won a Super Bowl recently but that doesn't mean they haven't been successful.
And what type if offense should a team with a great defense have....a purposefully average one? Sure, I get the "win the TOP game and play great defense" thought process, but ya know what works even better? Score a TD and then play great defense.
