The old saying: “Defense Wins Championships.” is very true.
Time and time again it is the defense that comes up big to win the big game. Think about Von Miller, Malcom Butler, Larry Brown, Ray Lewis, Reggie White … and on and on and on.
Teams know that a great defense is the key to winning so why doesn’t every team primarily focus on the defensive side of the ball?
If you really think about it, all you need is a great defense — by itself — to win games.
A good defense in and of itself can not only stop scoring but it can score all the points a team needs to win.
Shut out a good offense. Hold them to zero or three points and all you must do is get a pick-six or a fumble recovery returned for a TD to win.
An offense can only score to win.
Another old saying: “Don’t put all your eggs in one basket.”
If your basket is the defensive basket, it might not be a bad idea.
