Defense wubs championships? Or good defensive coaches create good defenses?

Every year the long line of self proclaimed experts tell anyone who will listen why team X,Y or Z will win, but year after year the best defensive teams find their way to the championship games.

In 2010 the Packers and Steelers were the top 2 scoring defenses in the NFL and amazingly they played in the Super Bowl. Offense is fun in the regular season, but defense wins championships. The more things change, the more they stay the same.

Defense + HOF QB = even greater probability of success.

HOF QB + 0 = 9-7, 10-6, 10-6, close but no cigar
