By Merrill Reese: I still believe in that old adage that offense sells tickets, but defense wins games.

Look at the once bumbling but now undefeated Detroit Lions.  They’ve got some talented offensive playmakers, a gifted young quarterback in Matthew Stafford and a remarkable wide receiver in Calvin Johnson but the player who has changed the course of that franchaise is Ndamukong Suh, their dominating defensive lineman.

If The Eagles are to somehow dig themselves out of this hole it must start with the defense.
