Yep. Look at Belichick. The Patriots have not won a Super Bowl in a long time but that offense is always innovative, and always has them in the conversation. For a team to remain as consistently successful as they have over the years, that says a lot. Since Brees and Payton got to New Orleans, they have been the same way.
I just wish the offense were half as good as the defense. We would have 6 already.
We would have six if our DEFENSE/SPECIAL TEAMS showed up. The offense carried us the end of last year, not that defense.
However, we do need a change at OC. Roman needs to go
I can mostly agree with that. The defense played well throughout the playoffs considering they had no pass rush against three QBs playing elite football. It was a very strange postseason for this team. The only game where they played solid for 60 minutes was GB.
The first half of every one of their games, the defense gave up easy scores, but in the second half, they were pretty awesome. Green Bay had 10 in the second half. Atlanta had zero second half points. The defense only gave up 6 in the second half of the Super Bowl. Special teams did give up that opening kick return, and without that, the Niners probably win the game
Usually in the postseason, there is one team that stands out and finds ways to win against the odds. Between the Niners and Ravens, there were two teams like that last year, and the Niners were the one that came out on the losing end unfortunately.
