Six times the #1 NFL offense has played the #1 defense in the Super Bowl. The team with the best defense has won all but 1 of those matchups. In fact, of the top 10 NFL offenses ever that played, only one actually won the Super Bowl - 9 of them LOST in the playoffs or in the Super Bowl itself. Denver was the best scoring offense in NFL history - almost 100 years of football history - and they got stomped like roadkill by a stellar defense. I realize we have a good offense and a good QB in Jay Cutler. But if our goal is to WIN a super bowl, then Emery has a lot of work to do with this defense - and Mel Tucker better be "The Man" they think he is. Otherwise we're just pissing in the wind, here in Chicago. 1. DENVER this season, 606 points. Postseason result: Playing Seattle in the Super Bowl. Lost 43 - 8. 2.
