You said it. Too many will always try to blame the "O" for not doing enough so they won't have to face the reality about a stale, out of date defense that fools no one except ourselves.
The offense has not disappointed this season and they are lerning a completely new scheme with a new OC. On defense, same, same DC and same failures in holding a lead and getting a big stop or turnover against just decent QBs. The QBs don't even have to be elite anymore to move up and down the field with no opposition.
