I am not sure if statistics are really facts, either, but here are some interesting stats that seem to indicate that defense might really win Championships. .
If you look at the stats for last years play-offs, SF was:
1. #1 in total offense
2. #1 in rushing offense
3. # 1 in points scored per game
The Ravens were tied for 2nd second best in scoring defense; in points given up per game.
SF was the second worst in points given up per game.
The problem with that is one game can skew everything since we're talking about a very small sample size. Offensively we had the greatest game of all time against GB but got completely shut out in the 1st halves of the other 2 games.
