Let’s say your favorite football team has the best offense in the NFL. From the moment they take possession of the ball, they’re unstoppable. But their defense is . . . lacking. That’s a recipe for disaster.
The most amazing offense in the world won’t make up for a weak defensive line. That’s because every team has to play defense at some point. When that happens, a team with subpar defense will lose all the ground they’ve gained. The best case scenario is a tie. And if there’s just one slip-up, one fumble, that’s all the
opportunity the opponent needs to take the lead.
