MP, I thought the Seattle defense took apart the Denver offense with surgical precision - all game long. It was men against boys. I agree with you that this doesn't mean that this is proof that a great D will always beat a great O. But I do believe it underscores the importance of the defense for a championship winning team. So many fans are all about the offense now, and fail to realize that a solid defense is important too. I think this is especially important in Chicago as we move forward. If we truly expect to overtake Green Bay and be dominant in our division, and certainly if we expect to WIN a Super Bowl, then we do need to have a respectable defense that can handle not only Aaron Rodgers, but also the other better offenses that we will need to get past to win a Super Bowl. That's my 2-cents worth here. Jay Cutler's arm will only take us so far. We've seen that.
