WOW, no No NO NO NO NO NO NO NO. Did I say NNNNOOOOOOOOO????
Not even flippin' close to being the best ever. First off, they aren't even better than the last Giants' Super Bowl team much less the one before that. They aren't better than last year's Raven's defense much less the 2000 Ravens which were probably the best ever UNLESS you consider the 1985 Bears' defense with the 4-6 Buddy Ryan defense that was awesome. The 1985 Bears and the 2000 Ravens were by far and away the best two defenses EVER. The Seahawks defense yesterday was without any question at all a defense that won a Super Bowl. That is it, nothing else. As for the halftime show yesterday? One word: LAME! You have got to be kidding me about that. Beyoncé was fine last year. Even the friggin' Black Eyed Peas were better than Bruno Mars yesterday. Lame Lame Lame. The whole game, commercials and especially the halftime show were Lame.
Nonsense, stupid to even suggest that
1985 Bears and then 2000 Ravens are the top two
The Seahawks have a great defense, but not quite all time.
They shut down the best offense in NFL history
The Seahawks shut down - and almost shut out -- the best offense in NFL history. Nostalgically touting the '85 Bears or the 2000 Ravens as superior seems a little visceral.
Who the heck really cares?
This station is pathetic. Rest my case.
The 1985 Bears gave up a lot less points than the Seahawks. The 2013 Carolina Panthers only gave up 10 more points than the 'Hawks. These polls are stupid. Too much huffing leaves your listeners with damaging memory loss.
Should have had air time for Andre Reed's induction instead of having a dark studio or this stupidity.
Not So Off The Mark...
Seahawks 2014 do deserve to be in the conversation -- I've been watching NFL since 1970s, Seattle's SECONDARY is the best I've seen, best combination of size and speed, such complete coverage and pursuit. But for me, Steelers 70s front four, and best overall unit; Bears of '85 linebackers, and most intimidating (also most fun to watch, a crazy bunch) in their one Super Bowl year. Baltimore, Tampa S-B defenses deserve a mention too... but AFC teams now have fallen behind NFC, finesse overmatched by raw toughness and speed, might get to be like the late 80s conference mismatches. Broncos & Pats the best of a weak lot.
SUPER STEELERS FOREVER!
TYPICAL WGR NONSENSE...
70's Steelers would crush the Seahawks and Broncos overrated offense. Bradshaw, Franco, Rocky, Swann, and Stallworth would LIGHT UP the Seahawks D, not even close. Steelers 35 - Seattle 13 or Steelers 42 - Broncos 13. The Steelers were great when everyone had a DEFENSE. not like today when only 3 teams have a decent defense; Seattle, San Fran and Carolina.
THE GAME WAS FIXED!!!!
re: They shut down the best offense in NFL history
What an idiot.
HERE'S WHAT'S NOT VISCERAL...
THE STEEL CURTAIN'S 4, FOUR, IV, SUPER BOWLS. MORON.
Never Mind Seattle How Bout...
"Our sole reason for existence is to win the...."!!!! Livin in dead last!!! Buy more tickets!!!!
They're obviously very good
Anyone touting the Bears or Ravens should remember that this year's Seahawks were handcuffed by many restrictions against defenders that did not exist in 1985 or even in 2000 (or 2002, just to throw the 2002 Bucs into the mix). Yet they nearly pitched a shutout against the best offense in history, which had the benefit of playing under the current rules, which clearly favor the offense. Best ever? Debatable. Undoubtedly inferior to the 1985 Bears and 2000 Ravens? No.
Re: They're obviously very good AND Re: re: WOW no NO...
Anybody, ANYBODY who refers to "DVOA analysis" to back their "facts" needs help.
Absolutely nobody has said the Broncos were or are the "best offense in history" NFL or otherwise (seriously, the 1990-91 US military was the best offense ever so don't go there). Stats-wise, yes; the Broncos certainly set records but they weren't the best. As far as a comparison to the 1985 Bears, did I miss how dominant that Seahawks defense was against the 49ers two weeks ago? You remember, the team that really deserved to lose that game? If memory serves, the Bears blew out EVERYONE that year (excepting that Monday Night joke in the Orange Bowl when the refs had a field day with Ditka) with a tremendous football team and a defense that allowed fewer points than any defense until...oh who was that defense that beat that record? Oh yeah, the 2000 Ravens. I forget, who quarterbacked that team's offense? Wait, that's right, Trent Dilfer! And they STILL won the Super Bowl! Don't get me wrong, either as I loved the Steel Curtain defense as well; but the Bears and the Ravens those two years were simply awesome. No excuses about "restrictions" either as they simply don't have the stats to back up their or anyone's hollow boasting.
It Sure Is Easy Being A Sports Talk Radio Show In Buffalo
Just be controversial. Throw out incredibly lame and unprovable assertions that will get the "real" know-it-all sports fans into a heated debate. Have lame polls on your website that will get all the natives fired up and expressing their opinions with the "analytics" to back it up. Unfortunitely for them, Buffalonian talk show guys jerry sullivan and his cohost were crucified on the deadspin website last week for their takes on seahawks running back Lynch.
close but no cigar
There is NO WAY that seatle has the best defense ever. They might be in the top 15. They were good but far from the best !!!!
Buffalo sports talk
Lazy. Stupid. Rude. Clueless.Vindictive. Boorish. Dull. Pretty much sums up the afternoon team.
THE STEEL CURTAIN.... IS LAFFING HARD!!!
THE BEST DEFENSE IN THE HISTORY OF MANKIND. FOUR, 4, IV SUPERBOWLS!!! ...85 BEARS... ONE AND DONE. 2000 RAVENS... ONE AND DONE. 2014 SEAHAWKS WILL BE ONE AND DONE.
MEAN JOE GREENE, DWIGHT MAD DOG WHITE, LC GREENWOOD, STEVE ANIMAL FURNESS, JACK HAM, JACK THE COUNT LAMBERT, ANDY RUSSELL, MEL BLOUNT, DONNIE SHELL, TONY DUNGY, BOBBY WAGNER, DIRT WINSTON, LOREN TOEWS, I COULD GO ON AND ON LET'S DANCE!!!
History will be the only judge - Seahawk undeniably one of the best
We've never seen a secondary like Seattle's period- hands done best ever. In today's pass happy league they can go toe to toe with anyone. The LB's are very good and the DLine is very good. Look at SF, Carolina and Arizona and you have 4 teams that would have likely handled that "best" offense. Seattle's strength is it's balance, very good offense, very good special teams and an overall great defense. Don't compare eras because today's athletes would kill the Steel Curtain. The '85 Bears had the great defense, but offensively speaking they were average. The formerly NFC Worst will likely win the next 3 Super Bowls.
re: History will be the only judge
STEEL CURTAIN... 4; FOUR; IV SUPER BOWLS. Will NEVER, NEVER, NEVER, NEVER be repeated by any defense, ever. THAT'S HISTORY, man. Teams are described by their cumulative accomplishments. 4 RINGS in 6 years. Not even close.
we know you are the one postsing repeatedly on here.. We get it you like the steelers. I don't know how you can root for a team that starts a rapist at QB though.
HEY STEALER FAN!
Yes, Stealer Fan, if those conspiracy theorist in San Fran think the Seahawks jobbed, try Seattle's first Super Bowl. You know, the one where the officials wore yellow and black. You didn't win that Super Bowl, the officials won it for you. Looking forward to a long drought in Pittsburgh. The Pirates look better these days.
What's next? The head coach is a genius? Must be a slow news day.
What's next? The head coach is the best ever? Must be a slow news day.
The Walmart moron.....
is desperate for a job. He obviously has needed something to do for over ten years. His 70's Steeler rant is just another symptom, like his constant hate of Schopp and Hamilton, and Regier. I know he is a person that any other human, family included, could not bear to be around for seconds even once much less hours day after day, but there must be someone searhing for sainthood willing to test the patience in the ultimate challenge willing to give him a job. Ok. Barring that, some family member must remove his internet access. That will just leave the one or two bars that have not banned him and their unfortunate staff and customers to tolerate him. Whatever, just get him off the internet.
