You ask me what the fug I'm talking about and then post this nonsense. Nobody is suggesting to cut anybody or just call dive play, that's just plain retarded.

 

I think most people would agree that the best teams are balanced teams, you need both a productive O and D.

 

I don't think its a good idea to be building your roster strictly leaning to one particular side.

 

But are you telling me the Bucs, Pitt, Ravens, NE and GB didn't have great defenses when they won the SB? Even those that weren't statistically great stepped up and made the plays in the big game defensively. NO picked off Manning to win, The Colts picked off Cutler to win (Peyton threw 1 TD pass that game) the Ravens stopped SF on a goal line stand to win last year, the first time around they were the #1 D, Pitt had like the #1 D and #3 D when they won. The 3 SB's the Pats won, their D was ranked 6th, 1st (against us) and 2nd. The Bucs had the #1 D. Packers had the #2 D. Even the Giants who weren't great statistacally had a great Dline to pressure Brady, they were like his nemesis. No other team was built to beat NE like the Giants were.

 

The cliché Defense wins championships carries a lot of merit. Hell, the years we got to NFCCG's we had good D's (2nd, 10th and 5th).

 

Keep summing up every superbowl to one defensive play, and keep cherry picking stats to try and prove a point, but understand that anybody that has a clue can obviously tell that you have no idea what you're talking about. You completely ignore offensive accomplishments in the superbowl like Drew Brees' 82% completion rate or Joe Flacco's 3 touchdown passes in the last one, while chest thumping about defensive plays that would've been moot if it weren't for the offense's ability to put points on the board.

 

But, by all means, continue commentating. Tell me more about the Indy defense shutting down Rex Cutler

LOL, Cutler. The point being it was Indys D that stepped up. Rex threw for 160 odd yards and had 2 picks. Peyton didn't have one of his usual dominating performances, he threw for 250 yards with 1 TD and 1 pick. It turned into a kicking contest and Haydens 56 yard INT return that sealed the win.

 

Look, nobody is suggesting Brees didn't have a part in winning the SB. But that game was decided by Tracy Porters INT of Peyton. He was stymied again with only 1 TD and 1 INT in that game too.

 

If you still have a problem with people saying Defense wins championships after all the recent winners I listed with very highly ranked Ds I don't know what to tell you.

 

There will always be exceptions, but the majority had good D's. Its fair to say D wins Championships. That doesn't mean go out and sign Rex Grossman or Blaine Gabbert.

you're arguing with a mule, bro

"defense wins championships" obviously means you want to play defense every snap of the game.

you can only think in terms of polar extremes on the huddle

Um, Indy was bottom ten in TOP in 2006. So how strong exactly is a rule that has recently had a 30% failure rate, at least?

I wasn't going to fact-check this but Madhatter cosigned your post and seeing as how I'd be surprised if he could tie his shoes I couldn't help

Hahahaha....you are a funny little man. Don't worry, the world has a special place for you. As you know, we need ditch diggers too.

Agreed.

Because the avg huddler to join in the past couple of years has the intelligence of a 3rd grader whose parents repeatedly dropped them on their heads and the football acumen of a pre-pubescent 12yo little girl. They think Madden has solid correlation to real football.

Sad really.

Agree.

Peyton and the high octane Infy offense and Brees and the high scoring Saints offense both had struggles in the playoffs until the year one particular thing happened.....their defense showed up.

The year the Cokts won the SB their defense played out if their minds in the playoffs.

The year the Saints won was the year if the bounty and when their defense showed up.

The Madden generation has no idea what defense is.

Lol Indy had like the worst defense in the league the year they won the super bowl. saying "but they stepped it up when it counted!" is a glorious, pathetic example of a cop out.

 

 

"Guys guys guys, it's alright if the offense isn't putting up lots of points and we don't make it to the super bowl, when the NFL elects to send us instead of the winning teams, we will ground and pound and defense in that game and win! yeah! real football! ground and pound and pound and ground! GROUND POUND HEEERRRRFFF"

...the majority of Super Bowl winners also had good offenses. The success rate (to wit, Super Bowl) as a matter of fact is as consistent with good offenses as it is with good defenses. You probably didn't know that though since you get all your opinions from espn pundits.

The saints were dead in the middle of the league in defensive efficiency in 2009 (and the colts were right there with them that year) and the colts were bottom ten in 2006.

Seeing Drew Brees and Peyton Manning in he same Super Bowl a few years ago should've made the little light bulb in your head go off to put to rest these misconceptions but you're old so take some ginkgo balboa and get with the program ebenezer

yes because having the greatest QB ever has absolutely no effect on any outcome, hence all teams should build a similar team

ever wonder what the colts would have looked like without manning? hint: 2011

weird... one defense was known for being the perfect example of bend but not break. they'd give up yards, but then were among the top ball hawking defenses in the league.

....and that defense won the game
