That is right...just pushing it back does not qualify as good defense does it.

Imo this is why counter punchers are the best players. They lead with excellent
defense, then counter with some smart, high % counter attacks.
They force you to play at or above your best to beat them, but look for every
Smart chance to beat you.
Great Defense wins Championships!,
but not with a total lack of offence.
