Breire is still not as good as Carter individually, but he has a unit which helps eachother stay positive.

What that line did in the playoffs and so far in the early part of this season is that as a unit they force the other team to react b/c they are so potent offensively. They are the epitome as a unit as you say of your offense being your best defense. Lavy recognizes it and it plays right into his system that is why he values that line and doesn't want to break it up. People who talk about trading any individual component of that line despite the "individual" flaws is a effin retard IMO and doesn't understand the importance of systems and continuity......
