Yeah, that's one thing thats wrong with his viewpoint. All of our opponents drives aren't going to end with a turnover or a punt. Sometimes it's a victory even holding them to a field goal.

Same thing on offense, sometimes punting isn't the result of a bad drive, if it changes field position. And turnovers can't be avoided, but stupid mistakes don't happen as often on good teams.
