  • Offense or Defense Wins Championships????

    O or D???

    i believe offense, colts got to the playoffs last year basically because of there offense. Oakland was the worst team in the NFL last year but had one of the top ranked defenses. sure the ravens and steelers make you think defense wins championships but offense can truly dominate if you have a dominating offense.

    Good arguement, look at the '04 Skins, they had the 2nd ranked D, but no offense and went 6-10
    Most people say though that Offense wins games and defense wins championships

      It's a combination of the two. One doesn't work without the other.

          Yeah, this has come up before I think too in another thread. Very rarely does a team that relies solely on offense or defense win the big one. If you can't stop anyone you wont win. If you cant score on anyone, you wont win. You don't have to be dominant at both, but you gotta be pretty damn good at both.

            Obviously you can't win with one without the other. The Raiders last year is a terrible example, because words do not even come near to describing that offense. Look at a team like the bears, they got to the super bowl last year with Rex Grossman at QB. While there offense wasn't stellar, it was able to control the ball, and score when they were supposed to score.

            The defense controls the game, but do that in full effect, it needs an offense to, at the very least, generate yardage.

              Yeah, to an extent. An average offense and great defense will get you farther than a great offense and average defense.

                  Neither; teams win championships not Offense or Defense.

                    True. Both of those scenarios would get you far though. Defense would probably carry more weight, because a team can find many ways to score (Special teams, interceptions, fumble recoveries, field goals) but only one real way to lock down the other team. Still, You can't just be great at one thing...usually.

                      Deffense wins games, offense sells tickets.

                        Well that's a corruption of the original saying. I've heard the tickets part for offense, but defense always wins championships in the sayings.

                          i think they have to be balenced to be a great team for example the steelers has a top ranked defence and a running game to they both helped each other

                            you need both in order win it all. But if you have a great defense, then you just need an offense that wont mess up and turn it over, same goes for a strong offesive team.

                              The Colts' offense got them to the playoffs, but the defense was why they finally won.
