I don't think I said that. I said they have had an elite QB and only 2 SB's to show for it. I don't think I made any inference at all regarding how much we are spending on our QBs is what has kept or is keeping us from having an elite D. Someone else sort of made that comment but it wasn't me.The Packers having an elite quarterbacks isn't the reason there weren't able to feature a great defense over the past 10 seasons.
An all time great QB is certainly nice to have but he can't do it all by himself and someone has to stop the other team from scoring. I'd rather have a defense that can hold an opponent to under 17 points a game than a QB who has to score 35 because the defense is going to give up 34. Granted you still need a QB who is good enough to put up 17 which is why I said an above average QBI'll stick take an all-time great QB over an average QB.
