They faced no Elite Quarterbacks during the Regular Season, they faced just 3 top 15 offenses, 6 (3 were divisional rivals so 9 games) were ranked in the bottom 18-32.

I'll give credit where it's dude and they were a good defense, there not a top 3 defense of all time (1. 76 Steelers, 2. 91 Eagles, 3.86 Bears) but there a top 10.

They had it easy during the regular season, they effectively had 5 games with some of the pootest Quarterbacks to ever live.

I'm not even going to post running games, they had about 5 top 15, and the others were really poo.

Yards Per Play allowed.

- 76 Steelers (3.8)
- 08 Steelers (3.9)
- 91 Eagles (3.9)
- 86 Bears (4.1)
- 00 Ravens (4.3)

Yards per game allowed. (They wern't even ranked #1)

- 91 Eagles (221.8)
- 08 Steelers (237.2)
- 76 Steelers (237.4)
- 00 Ravens (247.9)
- 86 Bears (258.1)

Points per game allowed. (Probably the most overrated defensive stat of all time)

- 76 Steelers (9.9)
- 00 Ravens (10.3)
- 86 Bears (11.7)
- 08 Steelers (13.9)
- 91 Eagles (15.2)

Seriously, Saying the Bears allowing 11.7 points per game is so great, why arn't the 2000 Titans mentioned? They allowed just 238.3 yards per game and 11.9 points per game and 4.2 yards per play. that's better stats than the 86 Bears.
NICE POST! Love the stats,great job!
