    Scoring average is the obviously the best way to judge an NFL defense. The point is to hold the other team to the fewest points possible.

    No other team in NFL history had led the NFL in scoring defense for four straight seasons. Ever.

    They just held the admittedly horrible Miami Dolphins to 10 points.

    Are they the best defense in NFL history? The answer, unless you're kidding yourself, is yes.

    If no, what's your evidence?

    Good defense, but they gave up more points in the 4th quarter of the Super Bowl than the '85 Bears gave up during the entire playoffs. I can't say they're the greatest.

    When they hold a team to 3 points in the Super Bowl, come talk to me.

    I just looked at fantasy football stats from today. Seattle defense finished with 11 points. Minnesota finished with 21 points.

    This isn't helping your theory.

    It is just too bad they don't hand out trophies for having the best scoring defense.

    Gotta go with the Steel Curtain with their 4 SB wins in 6 years.

    Speaking as a Seahawks fan, nobody's going to respect the accomplishments of that defense unless the entire team racks up a bunch of rings.

    And frankly, I wonder sometimes if that'll be possible thanks to offensive coordinator Darrell Goddamn Bevell and his propensity to be cutesy with the game-planning and offensive strategy.

    yeah, I'm pretty sure you don't know what you are talking about and I HATE the Steelers.

    The level of competition they face doesn't even allow them to be put in the conversation with teams from the past when real football was being played.

    then Miss Thing shouldn't start threads like this.

    This team is a decent team, they don't even deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as the top 10 all time.

    Their excellence has gone on for 4+ seasons.

    This is much bigger than one playoff run.

    Every possible statistic shows otherwise.

    Yeah, because athletes, coaching, and offenses haven't improved over time.

    Certainly didn't last 4+ years.
