is that a solid defense can only do so much Womens Danny Trevathan Jersey , because without a reliable offense, a team will struggle to make a deep playoff run."The Chicago Bears had the #1 defense in the regular season by a number of measures,including Football Outsiders’ DVOA metric. The defense was actually historically good, and in the only playoff game they will compete in, they held Super Bowl MVP Nick Foles to 77.7 passer rating (the only time he has had a passer rating below 100 in the postseason). That’s remarkable.It didn’t matter.In fact, in three of the four wildcard contests, the better defense was lost: Chicago’s #1 defense lost to Philadelphia’s #15 defense, Houston’s #7 defense lost to Indianapolis’s #10 defense, and Baltimore’s #3 defense gave way to LA’s #8 defense. Only with Dallas (#9) beating Seattle (#14) was there a game where the higher-ranked defense came out on top.The picture is exactly reversed on offense. The Eagles (#16) beat the Bears (#20), the Colts (#10) beat the Texans (#21), and the Chargers (#3) bear the Ravens (#15). Again, the odd game out is Seattle’s #9 offense losing Dallas’s #24 offense. On the surface, that could just be a fluke. One of those things Cody Whitehair Jersey , even if it is suggestive.Let’s look at next weekend, during the divisional round, to see what hope might be found for the idea that defense wins championships.We already know that the #1 defense won’t be playing, because Chicago was eliminated. The #2 defense (Buffalo) never made it in, while the the #3 defense was Baltimore, and they were likewise eliminated. Meanwhile, Minnesota (#4) had a chance to get to the playoffs but could not quite make it. Denver (#5) is looking for a new head coach.What are the top offenses doing? They’re getting ready to play. Kansas City (#1) is the only reason the Chargers (#3) even had to play on wildcard weekend, and both teams are still alive in the playoffs. The team in between them, the Rams (#2), might have lost to the Bears in the regular season, but they still have a chance at the Super Bowl. New Orleans (#4) is likewise getting ready to host a game. The #5 offense? The Patriots, who likewise get to host a divisional game. To be clear, that’s the top five defenses going 0-5 for playing in the divisional playoff games and the top five offenses going 5-0 for the same honor. Defense certainly can and has won individual games in the NFL this season. However http://www.thebearslockerroom.com/authentic-jonathan-bullard-jersey , only two of the top eight teams in overall DVOA are staying home on Sunday--the Ravens and the Bears. What both of those teams had in common was that they showed mediocre offenses propped up by spectacular defenses. That was enough to get them into the playoffs, but not enough to win games against playoff teams. Right now, Dallas is the only team left with a top ten defense that does not also have a top ten offense. Chicago fans are justifiably happy with how the season went, and the defense did some amazing things. However, if the Bears are going to make another run--perhaps a little deeper next time--the lesson from 2018 is that they are going to take a stronger effort on the part of the offense. The post-draft edition!"Hey folks, we made it through the 2019 NFL Draft. This was a pivotal class and it took some twists and turns, and now that we’ve had the weekend to digest it, here are some hot links and thoughts for your Monday morning.The Falcons landed seven new playersSeven out of nine possible selections, with the Falcons jumping all around the board in pursuit of the players they wanted. They wound up with:OG Chris LindstromOT Kaleb McGaryCB Kendall SheffieldDE John CominskyRB Qandree OllisonCB Jordan MillerRB/WR/KR/PR Marcus GreenThe team’s oft-stated commitment to improving the offensive line translated into two first round linemen, and that plus their free agent investments should (and better) translate to drastic improvement. Cominsky is expected to be a useful, versatile piece on the defensive line, Sheffield has sky-high potential as an athlete with length at cornerback, Miller might take a year but offers a similarly exciting profile and might be more polished in coverage right now Womens Akiem Hicks Jersey , and Ollison is an absolute battering ram with some speed to join a rebuilt running back groups. Green, who might be my favorite pick of the draft, is a hyper-versatile offensive piece with blazing speed who should be considered an early favorite to be the team’s returner.Did this class land all the players I wanted? No, but that never happens. Did it attack all the positional groupings I thought were most important? Not even close. Did it land the Falcons seven genuinely talented players in a year where the Falcons themselves are acutely aware of how costly failure will be? Yes, and after their recent classes, I’m willing to let this one play out.Undrafted free agents galoreWhile the team hasn’t made anything official to this point, they’ve been linked to a host of interesting undrafted players since the draft ended on Saturday. Here’s the list we know of: UDFA ContractsBoise St. DL Durrant MilesVirginia WR Olamide ZaccheausSan Diego St. S Parker BaldwinUCF CB Rashard CauseyTemple OL Jaelin RobinsonIllinois LB Del’Shawn PhillipsFerris St. OL Devon JohnsonSouthern Arkansas DL DaVondrick LisonTexas Tech DL Preston GordonWake Forest DL Willie YarbaryUAB TE Logan ScottCincinnati WR Kahlil LewisAlabama A&M Yurik BethuneGeorgia WR Jayson StanleyNorthwest Missouri St. WR Shawn Bane Jr.Oregon RB Tony Brooks-JamesUAB LB Tre Crawford IIIPenn State LS Kyle VaseyTulsa C Chandler MillerCamp Tryouts Clarion DL Alec HeldrethGeorgia TE Jackson HarrisGeorgia St. S Sean FreemanFlorida G Tyler JordanSavannah St. CB Brandon BaileyVanderbilt TE/WR Sam DobbsNorthern Iowa QB Eli DunneWho’s your favorite on the list? We’re team Parker Baldwin at safety and Olamide Zaccheus at wide receiver, personally, and the Falcons have largely shied away from some of Kevin Knight’s top targets. The Falcons aren’t done with their current group The Falcons’ reported interest in linebacker Quincy Williams in the third round indicates they aren’t totally satisfied with their linebacker group, and their defensive end and center groupings could probably use some enhancement as well. Even with a 90 man roster and plenty of interesting UDFAs on their way in, don’t expect the Falcons to stand pat. And here’s the current rosterNuff said.
