This game will determine if that saying is true or not. If the Bears win, it will prove that defense does win championships. If Indy wins, that statement is bullshit.

The only thing that will be proven today is that African American head coaches win championships.

ITs been bullshit. The last superbowl winner to score under 20 points in the SBhappend way back in 1975. You need a complete team to win. Hell, even the Ravens in the 2001 win scored what 34 points?

Seahawk fans would say zebras. Zebras win championships.

So one game is going to prove if it's true? When every SB winner this decade has had a good defense?

LMAO

The Ravens scored 14 of those points on defense and special teams. That's 20 points by the offense, and some of those were setup by the defense getting turnovers and giving them a short field. And they only gave up 7 points. They won with defense.

Not to mention, the phrase "defense wins championships" isn't just about one game.

It's not just one game. The Colts allowed a 100 yard rusher EVERY GAME this season (excluding playoffs). And the Bear's offense sure didn't get them to the superbowl.

Well a decent defence did win today..along with a little help from a below par QB...

good defenses create turnovers and good field position for offenses to score those points...

You misunderstood what I meant about one game, but perhaps I should have said "one team" to be more clear. One team winning the whole thing based on offense does not suddenly turn the ages old "defense wins championships" cliche into bullshit. Something only becomes an ages old cliche after it happens repeatedly. One thing to the contrary doesn't instantly turn it into a lie.

And you're adding the caveat "excluding playoffs" because the Colts actually played good defense in the post season, which makes the whole thing kinda silly anyway. Had their D not played as well as it did, they probably wouldn't have been there.

Well, the Colts did play pretty solid defense throughout the playoffs. :hmmm:

Anyway, today was proof that Maning is a SuperBowl QB. Grossman is definitely not.

And an African American head coach.

You just can't ignore that this Super Bowl was won by an African American head coach.

Yeah, it was Trent Dilfer and his fantastic efforts that nabbed the Baltimore Ravens their ring.

Charlize Theron is African American.

The KC star compared the coaches to Rosa Parks in yesterday's article. Yeah, a multi-million dollar job with tons of gophers heeding your every beck and call is very similar to a tired poor old woman risking life and freedom for something as simple as a seat.

I still can't believe this defense won a Super Bowl. It might be the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This is the same team that gave up 375 rushing yards to Jacksonville in the last month of the season. I never in a million years would've guessed this team could've done this, it's like they were just faking it all season then flipped a switch in the playoffs. They didn't even change that much in terms of strategy, they just started playing hard, or something.

The Clots defense has stepped up all through the playoffs. I guess it's because they rested all season.
