Was the PREMIER defense that the French had against German aggression prior to WWII. They KNEW it would work because it was a HUGE upgrade to the trench warfare system of WWI. Besides, they KNEW what the Germans were going to do if they attacked. So, they built this monster, and bet all they had on it. No budging. No adjustments for any reason. They had it and they knew it.

Germany simply ignored it and went around, catching the French off guard.

It reminded me of BA so much that I had to get out of bed and type this.

It reminds me more of our defense DJ. Our run defense is the impenetrable Maginot line, while our pass defense is Belgium. If you want to know how to attack the Steelers defense, bypass the strength and go right after the obvious weakness.

Nah, It wasn't planning or strategy or anything like that ..... it was a failure of execution by the French soldiers. (sarcasm intended, j.i.c.)

DJ, did you read this article and apply the same thing to our offense, or is this pure coincidence?

Honestly, I got the idea from watching a show on The History Channel. I am a history aholic.

My guess? Palmersucks reads the posts on The Planet. :tt1
