    Best Team I ever saw was the 4-time champion 1970's Pittsburgh Steelers, and next, the 1980's Forty-Niners... One had an impenetrable defense, the other was an offensive machine, but both were very, very balanced... Both could score, and both could D-up on ya...

    Next, for one season, the 1985 Chicago Bears, whose defense was ridiculous for ONE season, and damned good for about 5 years...

    The Miami Dolphins, Green Bay Packers, and Dallas Cowboys of the '70's and '90's were tremendous, and so were the New England Patriots for the past 4 or 5 seasons.. These teams stand alone in NFL History to me...oh, and I'll give the Denver teams that won back-to-back an honorable mention, too...



    Peace!

    Purely by the record you would have to say the '72 Miami Dolphins. Based upon total domination you'd have to say the '85 Chicago Bears. Offense may win games but defense wins championship, Ask the Indianapolis Colts...The defense of the '85 Chicago Bears is the measuring stick for which all defenses are compared. This is the concensus of the majority of football analysts, coaches and sports journalists.


    Peace.....

    That Steelers team in the 70s was absolutely awesome. They broke the Cowboys DOWN when Roger Staubach was supposed to be the second coming and Dallas was AmeriKKKa's team. Dallas was pretty, and slick, and fast, and they had the flex defense, and Pittsburg was dirty, and mean, and they had linebackers with missing teeth and they had Franco Harris's big lumbering butt but they ripped Dallas open and I was loving every minute of it. EVERYBODY was kissing the Cowboy's *** and the Steelers crushed em. It was so good. That is the best team I have ever seen cause them boys from Dallas was feared but Pittsburg crushed em. That Pittsburg defense was better than the Ravens in 2000.

    The 85 Bears had the best one year defense I ever saw. They had the other team scared. I mean really scared. I've never seen that before or since in the NFL. Never. The Ravens were good but teams weren't scared. The Steelers were awesome but teams weren't scared. The bears had quarterbacks fumbling snaps and offensive linemen jumping offsides. It was unbelievable.

    And yeah the 49ers was the best offensive machine in history.

    Over all Isaiah has it down pretty good. I wish I new more about those old Colt teams with Johnny Unitas and the Vikings purple people eaters.

    Thank you, brother Malik, I appreciate that a lot coming from you!

    The Bears of '85 could've been another STEELERS dynasty, but their egos and the videos got in their way... They were extremely talented, but truth be told, they'd take a back seat to at least 3 NFC teams in that period - Niners, Giant, Redskins - looking at CHAMPIONSHIPS... That's how you measure a great anything in sports - how many RINGS did they win...

    Speaking on the Pittsburgh Steelers on the 1970's, they won 4 championships in 6 years, and had not Terry Bradshaw, Franco, and Rocky Blieir NOT went out in 1977, we'd possibly be talking about at leas 5 in 6 years... In 1977, they lost 4 of their first 5 games after those injuries, and they went on to win 9 in a row, with 5 straight SHUTOUTS of their opponents... That's a champion fighting for their lives, and doing it defensively, because they had no OFFESNSE... I saw the Bears and the Ravens, and thought each teams defensive unit to be outstanding... But NEVER did either of them put on a Defensive display like that - never!

    Lastly, the guys on that team could play in today's game... They were the prototypical SIZE and SPEED team... They pioneered all of that weightlifting and steroid abuse - LOL! A few of their guys are dead today because of it... They also pioneered the use of BIG defensive backs... Mel Blount was the HOF, All-Pro Corner for forever, and he was like 6-2 and 200 pounds...almost as big as their linebackers, Ham and Lambert, who were small and fast... So what we see out here today, that team and their coach, Chuck Knoll, popularized it all... Big, fast, mean and intimdating...Smash-mouth football... A TEAM and ORGANIZATION that forced others to be LIKE them to beat them...

    Not sure if the 90 New York Giants would be considered, but the Super Bowl of 1991 would surely be one of the more memorable...

    Before there were "halftime shows", there was this...


    Giants lost their starting QB, Phil Simms, before the start of the playoffs... ironically against the team they would face again in the Superbowl...

    Simms Placed on Injured Reserve
    December 19, 1990

    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Dec. 18— The Giants made it official today. They placed Phil Simms on the injured-reserve list, meaning that their ailing quarterback cannot return before the National Conference championship game on Jan. 20.

    Simms severely sprained his right foot last Saturday in the Giants' 17-13 loss here to the Buffalo Bills. Jeff Hostetler, who replaced him, will start Sunday against the Phoenix Cardinals in Tempe, Ariz., with Matt Cavanaugh as the only backup.​
