With all the pansy BS can't hit too hard , too high, too low, too early, etc, rules in place these days, we will never again see a defense the likes of the 85' Bears, 86' Giants, 00' Ravens, 02' Bucs. League wants 55-50 games, not 14-10. 02' Bucs D was the last D to hold opponents to under 200pts in a season.
IMHO , a direct result from Madden and Fantasy Football to keep fans involve.
Sad that in the end, it's all about the Benjamins.
