Sure, generally, most defenses are read and react because that's essentially what you're always doing... however it's much more detailed than that. The read and react defenses of the Titans and Bears are different than what the Broncos were running. An attacking defense is can essentially be said to read and react, since you're seeing if it's a running play or passing play. I guess you can call it aggressive vs conservative.
The problem with the more conservative is that you sometimes might not get a pass rush, and it's easier to to miss assignments.
I would like to say that the Bears and Broncos were running similar schemes at times...
