Good research but IMO they go hand it hand. a great O begets a much better D and vice versa..

Give me two top fifteens and I suspect that we will be in the hunt..

two top tens and really good things happen..

It has been almost forever that we have had a DC that knew his ass from his hat..

I do not remember that last one, maybe the leader of the orange crush?

That is going back a long time..

Lets hope that JDR is around for a few years..
