Ngata, Suggs, Lewis, Reed...ALL HALL OF FAMERS lol
Kruger, Upshaw, Webb, etc...plenty of other studs
and you are trying to say the defense wasn't that great?
I really, honestly can't believe you think the Ravens O-line was arguably the best last year. I really don't even.... sigh. If you say so....
They were great because they got their big names back? Two games in the playoffs they gave up 30+ plus points. That is elite defense to you? Who cares who they got back if they didn't perform on the field.
The Giants D did not allow a team over 20+ during their run. The only thing comparable between the two D's is both getting healthy at the right time. There is a huge gap on what actually transpired on the field.
