How's it feel to have a Bengals superbowl team ranked higher than a Steelers one? lol

the 1978 Cowboys were an awesome team, the best of the teams that lost the SB.
the 1976 Steelers were not only the best team to not play in the Super Bowl, they were at least in the top 10 of best teams ever, and an arguement could be made that for the 10 game stretch where they went from 1-4 to 10-4 plus blasted the Colts in the playoffs, they were the best team in NFL history.

btw, from a Patriots perspective, there is NO WAY the 1996 Packers are better than the 2004 Patriots. For cry eye, if it wasnt for Desmond Howard, the flawed 1996 Patriots might have beaten them.

A lot better than it must feel to never have seen your favorite team win a Super Bowl

Like I said earlier, all just opinion, but I agree completely. When a KR is named SB MVP, it generally means nobody else on the team (including Favre) played well enough to deserve it.

What does it say about Seattle that it became the only team to outgain and commit fewer turnovers than its Super Bowl opponent and still lose? It means the Seahawks either (A) got screwed, or (B) easily could be ranked ahead of the Steelers. Alas, we stick them here, because (A) they did lose just three games, including one in OT and the season finale in which Shaun Alexander and Matt Hasselback sat the second half, but (B) benefited from a very easy schedule, and (C) featured the NFL MVP in Alexander, but (D) still managed to mess up the Super Bowl by dropping several passes and allowing two big plays to Pittsburgh.
It still hurts....

Its a semantic debate I guess. If you read the sentence as having the two variables being paired, the author is correct (as far as I know). If you read it as two stand alone issues then you have proven him otherwise. I am sure if you pointed this out to the author he would say he meant the former.

Yep, I looked at them as two stand alone issues - you could read it either way, really. And the curt one-word response was not directed at you, but the author of the article. ESPN was the main culprit that fed the officiating "controversy" last year, and I still have a standing boycott against that network because of it. Never mind that their talking heads later reviewed every "questionable" call and concluded that all but the penalty on Hasselbeck (which had no effect whatsoever on the game's outcome) were correct. I also like how the author "conveniently" neglected to mention that one of those dropped passes was a fumble by Stevens which was incorrectly ruled an incomplete pass.

Considering that one Bungal fan has been quoted elsewhere saying that even though they lost the 88' team "was in their glory"...I'd say it's hillarious.
