Advantage offense.

Assuming completely equal talent, the edge would have to go to the man who knows the play.

It's really a very interesting question, though. The NFL is a "copycat" league, as we know. So, everybody is always looking for that little edge that will give them the advantage in spite of the talent on the other side of the ball. When something seems to be working for Team A, Teams Other Letters follow suit pretty quickly. Over time, it all evens out again but the lasting result is greater and greater complexity in schemes, plays, and alignments. Fans can use these to figure out how various coaches feel about their line talent. When I see a defense using a ton of stunts and twists, for example, I assume they feel they're mismatched man-on-man.
