I know offense and defense are technically equal but I can't help feeling like offense nowadays is a bit more crucial to overall team success. Elite defenses aren't as dominant (or consistent) as elite offenses. If you have a bottom 5 offense, you're pretty much guaranteed to be terrible. Carolina has the 6th ranked defense, yet is 31st in overall DVOA due to their O. That's not the case for teams with terrible defenses however. New England's the 3rd best team despite their 27th ranked defensive DVOA.
So is offense more important than defense or have I overlooked some things? If so, will the trend continue?
