ATLbound Posted September 7, 2010 Share Posted September 7, 2010 Last year there were only three games our offense didn't score above 10 points. We were 1-2 in those games.One of those games we didn't have Turner, Ryan, HD (Eagles)The other game that we won we didn't have Turner and a "turf toe'd" Ryan (Jets)and then there was the PatriotsAll the other games we scored 19 points or more.On a good and balanced team, if the offense scores 3 TD's (21 pts.) then this should be enough for the team to win.Out of the 22 teams (including us) whose defense gave up 20 points per game or above only 3 of them made the playoffs: Saints, Cardinals, and Chargers Based on this there is a higher percentage of getting to the playoffs by making sure our defense is up to par moreso than by beefing up our offense.Disclaimer: I'm not saying our offense doesn't need to be more efficient, but at this point we don't need better players on offense to get by. We actually need better players on defense. I'm hoping this is the year we can get that production from our defense. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
