Will Defenses in NFL Catch Up?

Seems like more than ever the NFL defenses are far behind the intricate offenses. Some analytics getting teams to go for it has made it tougher on defenses too. Good weather mixed with a shirt preseason has added to it.

The best defenses don’t seem that good but virtually every team can score and get up and down the field.

Weather changing to bad will help out some.

No because the officials are only calling obvious holding

One new thread created a month and that’s the only thing that can’t be edited. I’m probably never going to add that functionality.

Yes, but only when the league goes back to allowing some contact on passing plays

I hope your Willie Mays rookie has a crease down the middle

I agree with this now that I think about it....I’ve noticed a lot of holds not get called so far.

This, but who knows when that will ever happen.  The NFL loves points and they have done everything posssible to put the defense at a disadvantage.
