Can you have too much venting on intake side?

Just like the title says, can you have too much venting on the intake side of an attic (ie. soffits)?

I just can not see how that would be possible.

17,000 dryer fires a year, when did you last clean the inside of the dryer near motor or the exhaust ducting?

Theoretically, yes. Is it much easier to over vent on the exhaust, yes.

Where are most homes over balanced, exhaust.

60/40 split on intake to exhaust is fine.
