Tell that to the Ravens, The Bucs, and the Bears who all went to a SB and won two out of three with just defense all in this last decade.
Of course you have to score, but having an elite defense year in and year out can typically keep you at the top of the league for many years. The Saints had great offenses for years, but didn't get to a SB, until they put a really good defense together. The only year the Colts went to the SB was the year they really turned on the D in the post season when Sanders came back and dominated like crazy and when they had one of the best defenses in the league when they lost to the Saints with the Manning pick 6.
I think the easiest proven formula that wins a SB or makes you a top team year in and year out is having a great QB with a very good defense where the rest of the team sort of falls in place. Great defense and a great QB is what wins it all in the end.
