Cisco 6500 Modular chasiss

Hi all,

is the modular chasiss nothing without the supervisor engines

i mean wat chassis is capable of doing if we need to install supervisor engines for forwarding decisions.    

is that chassis is only for supporting  the modules and the rest all task is controlled by supervisor engines.

please distinguish  with wat all chassis is capable of without supervisor engines. is it possible to do switching without them just having a switch module

              

I am really confused. Please don't take it as silly question. Do answer

A supervisor card is the "heart" and the "brains" of the chassis.

Without a supervisor card, the line cards are next to useless.
