That D was disgusting and took down a team that had only punted 1 x in the playoffs and had only turned the ball over 1 time(I believe is what I heard). Nothing about the 85 Pats team screamed historically dominant O w/top 5 historically great qb. That being said it's becoming more of an exception then a rule b/c of how the rules are. But I think what it did show is that Carroll, much like Bellecheck is a near genius when it comes to getting valuable talent throughout the draft and into UDFA and finding roles for them, even if they aren't full time starters. A reocurring theme w/the announcers was how the team was "riddled" w/late picks and ufda's; he also was one of the first to figure out that you need big physical cb's instead of smaller faster ones to play in a league that doesn't allow a ton of contact. Carroll and his DC are just ahead of the NFL in scheme. They also took advantage of a deep qb draft and hit a goldmine b/c it allowed them a cheap quality starting qb which gave them the ability to b/c special in every other area. Also, and before you slam Wilson to much, he has a fraction of the talent the Bears O has had. If Cutler was saddled w/two decent but not great wr's, and a strong run game his weaknesses would show through(holding onto the ball to long and throwing bad picks) and be forgiven b/c the talent around him wasn't good enough. Wilson didn't have to do a lot, but he made plays to keep drives alive, while protecting the ball(like Flacco last year in the playoffs) and got his team a SB championship in his 2nd year. SF was another team that is built this way, and ran into a only slightly more complete team in Balt the same year, that was built the same way. Young cheap qb, complete everything else. The Bears followed an out of date method that has yet to work for the other teams that have done it, way overpaid for average qb talent, like Dal, Atl, SD, and Balt(this year not last year), and it could well cost them in their ability to build a complete team and compete for championships.
