    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.

    As a Bears fan I can answer this.

    Defense gets you to the championship, and then the offense blows it!

    A great defense and a game managing offense, and a good special teams wins SBs.

    As others have mentioned, you cannot have an elite defense with no offense or vice versa. The offense needs to at least be able to move the ball in key situations to get their defense some rest, and obviously to score points. The examples of the '04 skins isn't really valid because their offense was so bad that the defense couldn't make up for it. At the same time, you can't win every shoot out you get in, and you wont be able to score 30 points every game, i.e. the colts during the patriots back-to-back superbowls

    Thus far there has never been a team who cannot play defense, who has won the Super Bowl. The inverse, i.e the Ravens of '00, have actually occurred. For those who mention the Colts, their Defense played fabulous in the playoff run.

    Defense wins championships.... the colts are perfect example of this, they've had a great offence for years but they didn't put it all together until this year in he playoffs when their D became good/great.

    Something like that.

    I think it's a bit stating the obvious to say that you need a complete team to win a championship. I guess the argument is if you would rather have a great defense and average offense, or vice versa (as someone pointed out earlier).

    It has to be a complete team, don't forget about half of the Bears offense was special teams and Hester giving them great field position if not scoring himself. You can not put Defense above Offense or vise versa, you must have a complete team.

    Can't win a game without scoring any points. Can win a game without giving up any points.
