In response to ANONMD08's comment:
If it turns out to be NE-SF New England has to find a way to contain Kapernick, I know GB has a lousy defense but a QB rushing for 181 yards is totally unacceptable. NE has to ball control which means keep pounding the ball to open up Brady's passing game. Turnovers will be the key. NE has to get out to an early lead and keep it. I think it will be a close game. Have to take care of Ravens first.
You do realize that this D took out the Kaepernick running factor, right? Not that it matters, since Balt is the next opponent, but I think sometimes people lose sight that whatever BB's gameplan is on D, this D is VERY GOOD at playing within that gameplan, with it actually working a lot more than people realize here.
I disagree with this thread title, obviously. The OFFENSE must carry this team in such an offensive era.
It makes no sense to say otherwise. I know the D will be there yet again on Sunday night, but the offense also has to be consistent over the 4 quarters, pretty much like how they were last night.
This D probably allows 17 points max last night if not for 4 horrendous calls against the Pats.
Another idiotic stinker from you.
It make no sense to NOT hold the D accountable, offensive league or not.
That is their job and some D's are actually very good which is the reason points per game HAVE NOT increased significantly over the past decade.
As long as they don't put up a 80+ DPR stinker, the TEAM will be fine!
