    Offense or Defense?

    Do you prefer watching offense or defense? I guess it matters what team you are watching, but i enjoy watching a spread offense in action. I just enjoy watching the no huddle and quick passes. I tend to think defense is kind of boring to watch other than the big hits. When a offense is rolling and putting up points fast i love it.

    Re: Offense or Defense?

    I like watching the Cyclones. If our offense is good then I would prefer to watch that and same goes for the defense. Hopefully both are good this year though!

    Eh I'll give it a shot. Spread Offense > any Defense > Pro Style offense

    But I voted both.

    I'll agree. Pro Style has to be the boringest thing i've ever watched.

    Re: Offense or Defense?

    I chose Defense, because that is what I played in High School. I really believe that defense wins championships. i.e. '09 Nebraska

    I prefer a pack rat chasing defense.

    Defense all the way. A well coached defense is the most fun to watch.

    Re: Offense or Defense?

    I know that this isn't the norm, but I do like a grind it out running style type of offense. There is something about seeing an offense team have a touchdown drive that takes ten minutes off the game clock.

    Thats nice to have only if you have a dominate defense.

    Re: Offense or Defense?

    I like watching both, but don't forget about special teams! Defensively, I played FS in high school, so I do like watching the secondary.
