Defense vs. Offense!!!
Is it better to have a dominalte offense or defense? They say defense wins championships, right? But I saw the rams do it with offense. Which is better to have, a dominate offense or defense?

If you stop and think, the Rams won the Super Bowl that year with a pretty damn decent showing by the defense. Tennesee\'s defense is definitely what got them there that year, and their offense didn\'t have NEAR the weapons the Rams did. The Rams came up big in the clutch as well. The last play of the game was a yard from them losing, but they stopped the Titans when it counted.

The lambs definitely had a good defense when they won the superbowl, the offense just got all the hype. I think that you need a balanced team to win these days, and you cant put it all on one side of the ball.

Defense win championships. The problem with N.O>,when we had D was we couldn\'t score at all. The Rams simply could outgun you . They had a moderate defense. Think of defensive squads.....Bucaneers(sorry),Giants (of old),Baltimore Ravens. There have have been many successful Defensive teams. Our pendulum swung the other way. We became all offense. I would say that our victories against the Rams were because of defensive efforts.

I read a stat somewhere that the last 10 times a top-3 D played a top-3 O in the SB, the top 3 D won 9 of the 10. Thats pretty telling.

i think you guys are giving the spams D in 99 a little to much credit

they were good but when an offense is scoring that much it causes the opponents offense to play over their heads which in turn causes more opportunities for the D

i do agree that while you need a balanced team on both sides of the ball that D might just be a little more important and special teams is huge factor that often gets overlooked

yeah we beat them twice last year but that was more of a match up kinda thing

all the teams that beat tampa last year were PHYSICAL football teams

NO, philly, pittsburgh all hard hitting physical teams

tampa uses speed to win games, however if you keep them out there and keep pounding on them they start to slow down due to lack of size
