It's just untrue. There are plenty of teams that have been successful in the past and present by employing four pass rushers on the d line.
Speed on defense is critical in the NFL and I would say that it is only absolutely necessary to have a big run stuffing NT if you run a 34. In any other style of defense it is a preference, not a necessity.
