    Best Football Team EVER!!!

    I thought it would be fun to have a little friendly debate on the best football team/season ever.

    Barry and I had a little conversation about this Sunday and whether I thought Montana's 49ers would have been good enough to beat the current Patriots team.

    My answer, I'm not sure, but it'd be great to see them play each other.

    For the record, unless the Pat's win the Super Bowl this weekend, they can't be considered.

    So what are, in your opinion the best football teams ever?

    Re: Best Football Team EVER!!!

    '88-'89 49ers
    '85 Bears
    '78-'79 Steelers
    '65-'67 Packers

    The jury's still out on this year's Patriots. Like you said, they've got to win it first. For all their dominence this year, I'm not entirely convinced they're going to get past the Giants.

    Broncos, but I am partial. Once you drink the water in Denver, you are an instant Bronco fan.

    I meant to vote "Other" as well. When I saw the title, the first thing that popped into my head was the USC Trojans team of this decade. The title says football team, not NFL.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: Best Football Team EVER!!!

    I've got to split hairs, possibly, a bit here.

    In terms of one season...the 85 Bears...no other team has been as dominant for one year, including the Niners team that went 18-1, and this year's Patriots even if they wind up undefeated.

    For the most part, I also think of the earlier Patriots Super Bowl winners as essentially the same as this year's team - so why wouldn't you consider them, even if they don't win on Sunday?

    It's hard if not impossible to compare eras, and let's not forget that the rules are continually being re-written to give more and more help to the offense...

    Having said that, even though I was a die-hard Rams fan at the time, for an "era" I would go with the 80's 49'ers with that offense, great defense and solid special teams as well.

    For one season, one team...the Bears.
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    In Los Angeles, they essentially are the NFL team we no longer have.

    Some would beg to differ with me on that point.

    Re: Best Football Team EVER!!!

    In no particular order ... well, after the 49ers ...

    87-90 49ers
    93-94 49ers (talk about buying a championship, but still an awesome team)
    '85 Bears - I'm with Barry on this one. Other than 1 loss, they were absolutely dominant.
    Early 00's Patriots

    And if the Pat's win Sunday, you can add them to this group.

    Mamabot, I thought about adding USC, I really did.

    I'm all about Joe Montana, baby. He and Jerry Rice introduced me to the NFL with their awesomeness.

    First, the 1986 New York Giants. Overlooked in the survey, but a dominating team on both sides of the ball.

    Second, the 72 Dolphins. If you believe in the phrase, "Just Win, Baby", these guys always found a way to make it happen. Imagine a backfield where three different backs rushed for over a thousand yards, and having a deep threat.

    Beyond that, probably the Packers teams, which won a number of NFL championships before the Super Bowl.

    I have to say the 85 bears, but I also voted for the 49ers, mostly because they beat my poor Bengals in 89

    Of course, those Bears had to get past my Rams, an absolute offensive steamroller quarterbacked by the legendary Dieter Brock in the NFC Championship game...and by the way the Niners beat Cincy in two Super Bowls...82 and 89...

    Going undefeated is impressive for any team, but I still think the 72 Dolphins were overrated. They benefitted from a weak schedule--the regular season winning percentage for their opponents was under .500.

    That's the one thing that sticks in the back of my mind about this year's Patriots. Yes, they've been up to the challenge against playoff caliber teams, but they also had a cakewalk in their division. Nothing like getting spotted six easy wins against lesser teams. I'll be a bigger believer in their all-time ranking if they beat the Giants.

    As for the 72 Dolphins, meh. I'd rank all of the above teams ahead of them.

    TOTALLY agreed. I think all of the other teams listed would have beat that team.

    I mean, just look at their division that year

    Dolphins: 14-0
    Jets: 7-7
    Colts: 5-9
    Bills: 4-9
    Patriots: 3-11

    And I mean their playoff run wasn't very impressive either. Sure they beat the Steelers by 4 points, but they weren't "The Steelers" yet. I can't imagine that Steelers team of a few years later losing to that team.
