What's the best team of years gone by..other than the Steelers of course cuz we all know nothing tops the Steelers Dynasty of the 70's.
The skins when Joe Gibbs was there w/ the Hogs, and Theismann, Riggins, and the fun bunch comes to mind as one great one.

I agree the skins, and the 49ers...

There are a number of teams to pick from. I like the skins, The Giants had a pretty good team, niners were great. Elway had a number of good teams. And I really like Elway.

Even though we hate them, you cant leave out the Cowboys. I think they have been to more Superbowls (8) than anybody and won 5

The 49ers and the skins

The 49ers and the skins
I agree 100%
I have to go with the Cowboys of the 90's.....thoses teams were great. they may not have been able to beat some of the 49ers teams of the 80's, but I think they would kill the Redskins of old. They had perfect balance.....good defense, good offense, and they could run or pass

I think definately the Packers of the '60s have been forgotten. Way before my time, but there in the history books. Cowboys of the 90's and Patriots of the 2000's. And of course, the 49'ers of the 80's.
Denvers run was pretty impressive. It may have lasted longer if Elway didn't retire.

Dont forget the Pack, way back in the day... ice bowl comes to mind !

yeah, I know i`m getting old. But when you read through this thread. The real young fans say , 90`s c-boys, little older say giants or skins, little older may like 70` dolphins and so on!
07-03-2005, 12:46 PM
Not older..just more wise and more experienced! :D
85 bears comes to mind too! for 1 year, they were awesome!
07-03-2005, 01:19 PM
If its only one season then how can not go with the '72 Dolphins. Otherwise you guys nailed the teams of the decades.
07-05-2005, 09:47 PM
no doubt, the dolphins were the ultimate team for 1 year.. cant get anybetter than undefeated!
07-08-2005, 02:14 PM
Maybe I missed it but I didn't see the old Colts mentioned. The teams that had Johnny Unitas, Lenny Moore, Alan "The Horse" Ameche, "Big Daddy" Lipscomb, Raymond Berry, Gino Marchetti, Art Donovan, etc. in the late 50s, and early 60s.
07-08-2005, 02:19 PM
Definitley should be on the short list! I was just to young to remember. Art Donovan is a classic though,

STEELERS HAVE TO WIN THE SUPER BOWL AND THEN THE BUST GOES HOME
3 to be 4
01-24-2006, 08:27 PM
80's 49ers, 60's Packers, 00's Patriots, 90's Cowboys, Gibbs Redshins were 3 different teams- early 80's, 87, and 91
for one season the '85 Bears were the scariest team i ever saw. the '72 Dolphins had a soft schedule and barely won many of their games, in fact if Bradshaw didnt get hurt early, the Steelers would have beaten them in the AFCCG.

this will be an unpopular answer but my favorite and one of the most under rated teams of all time was the bills. while it sucked watching 1 team dominate the afc for so long it was a fun team to watch. were they better than the cowboys though? no. the 49ers had an impressive stretch.
01-24-2006, 08:45 PM
Wow this is an OLD thread :laughing: Glad to see it was resurrected !!
01-24-2006, 08:54 PM
60's packers...power personified....
LOVE that old school philosophy....
01-24-2006, 08:58 PM
I'll be the one to say it...those Browns teams running on Jim Brown's shoulders. That's OLD school, but they were dominant, and he was the first superstar RB of the NFL.
