The year of defense?

Seems to me that, although only one week has passed, the trend of offense over defense has reversed. This weekend's games were slugfests. Lots of grinding it out. As a fan of the Bears, I gotta say I like it.
For the last few years it seems that the OC's had something over on the DC's. Stats were through the roof for "skilled" positions. Could it be that the DC's have shored up their deficiencies?
I noticed better disguised blitzes, more 8-9 man fronts, more goal line stands than I remember from the past few years. Sure there were a couple of games that were scorefests, but most were lower scoring than in the past. Last year's superbowl was a matchup of offensive powerhouses, with good (but not great) defenses. Did everyone spend the whole offseason studying those two team's tapes? It sure seems like it.
Of course, we have that stupid placement of the ref to blame...if you are looking for a scapegoat.0 BEAR DOWN!, 0 High Fives, 0 Like, 0 Dislikes, 0 Fap, 0 Facepalm
