It's very catchy to use the 'defense wins' cliches, but you have to remember that the offenses you are facing in the playoffs aren't pushovers. San Francisco gave up 31 points to GB, and they still won easily. Unless you have the '85 Bears defense, it's a good idea to have an offense that can score 30 points or more if needed.
Our defense let us down big time, but you cannot ignore 7 points by the offense over the last 3 quarters of the game. It's foolish to think that wasn't a factor.
Not to mention we took zero shots down the field. I wonder what the reasoning was? Maybe they just weren't open. All I know is that RB, MLB and DT were positions that stood out as severly lacked playmaking ability. Those positions and the interior of the OL need upgrading!
