I think this weekend answered a question. Despite the most fervent wishes and prayers of most sportswriters and rules makers, defense still wins in football. Offense is fun to watch, and fun to write about, and fun to try to favor with rules that make trying to stop it harder and harder, but even teams with the best offenses can't hang with teams with the best defenses. Not when its all on the line, one game, one shot.
And, once again, the team with the most passing yards in the league is not going to win the Super Bowl.
This doesn't hurt too bad, because I knew, in my heart, that it would take a miracle for GB to repeat. Their defense is sad. I mean, 32 of 32? That automatically ranks it with some of the worst defenses of all time. All it took was ONE off day by the offense, and the Emperor had no clothes.
And, I have never heard the home crowd boo the Packers before.
