having a better offense doesnt translate to SB wins
How good was the 2013 Bronco's defense? Not good enough. How was the best offense in 2013 NOT GOOD ENOUGH to win the super bowl. JPN has said it over and over for those that can not or chose not to read. It takes a balance of O & D to win a super bowl most years. And I am sure someone has a stat to prove that wrong also. Oh yea ask the Broncos if it would have been nice to have a more balanced O with a strong running game that could just match up and run the damn ball. Not have to try and trick the D to run the ball. To much offense trickery does not make a balanced strong offense if the defense can shut that down. BPA with a sprinkle of need is a good way to pick round 1-3. Not going to pick a QB if that is the only player rated higher then say a CB or WR. Need for a QB is very low this and next season. The Steelers in my eyes must put some thought and value in the next season "needs" when drafting also. So OLB is on that list even in the 1st with questions as of right now for ROLB. Now if that changes that need drops on the list some. We all can look at this team and see this seasons needs and even next season needs. If they think they can strengthen a position for next season they will. I think that was the gamble and thought with the Shark. Heck at one point that was the plan with Pouncey. But bonus was he stepped right in and took his position.
According to your stats the higher defensive ranking 7.9, versus 8.2 for the winners, loses the Super Bowl more. So having the better defense obviously doesn't translate into wins either.
