Defense Protects, But Offense Makes The Win Possible

Last night’s Super Bowl between the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers will have to go down as one of the greatest championship games in the history of the league. And despite fourth quarter and final minute heroics from both teams, the fact remains that the team that scored the most points in regulation time won.

The game ending play was an interception by the Steelers, leaving 5 seconds left on the clock to run out before they could officially start their celebration. The Cardinals’ dream season ended right there. Had they not given up an interception for the longest touchdown in Super Bowl history two quarters earlier, the outcome might have been different.

Then again, if the Steelers didn’t cause a penalty on themselves, giving up a safety instead of getting a first down, the score might not have been that close.

Arizona knows that they put forth an effort they can be proud of, but they know that they lost the game because they we’re unable to score enough point FIRST, and allowed the Steelers to score more points than they did SECOND.

There is a saying that most will stick to in football that defense wins championships, but your offense has to do its job and get the ball past the goal line to make the points.

Look at your business and compare your offense to your defense. The way you play on both sides of the ball is important, but you’ve got to make the moves to advance your business, even with our current economic crisis, or your defense won’t mean much. Make sure you are not only working on your best defensive moves (saving cash, cutting spending, working toward more lean and flexible operations), but you have the most powerful offense plays you can execute practiced and ready for game time (recruiting fresh talent, prospecting new businesses, putting your money in early for the right emerging technologies).
