Because the Defense clamped down and held Atlanta to 7 points the rest of the game . Not to mention the SF Defense came up big stopping an Atlanta Drive to potentially win with less than 90 seconds in the game.
Had they continued to allow Atlanta to run up and down the field in the second half like they did in the first half, the offense would not have been able to catch up.
Dont kid yourself, the SF Defense won that game.
As for the 2011 Championsip Game against Pittsburgh, that loss falls squarely on the Defense. They allowed Pittsburgh to run up and down the field, couldnt make a single tackle and remarkably, even though the Jets had a chance late in the game, couldnt come up with the big stop that great defenses make to give the offense a chance.
Rex's defenses have been great at statistics, but they never made the big stop to save a game. Never.
Thats why Rex is a sham.
