Default Do you have that same feeling as '95?

The past few weeks of dissecting our team, I have come to it that this team reminds me a heck of alot like our team from 95 that went to the bowl. Offense kind of suspect hit or miss every now like back then, but still getting it done in the 4th when needed and our defense revolving around our great linebacking corps. There are many similarities IMO, too many for me individually to list but does anyone else agree? THOUGHTS/OPINIONS?

Except our QB won't throw a billion picks in the super bowl and we will win it all!

Offense was much better in '95, That was one of O'Donnell's best years but he shined through in the end in the Superbowl.

Both teams had great defenses, but the 95 team had a much better offense. Hopefully at the end of this season we can talk about the 08 version making it to the super bowl.

I wish I could say yes, but in all honesty, I can't. While I believe this season's D is stronger and better overall than the D of 1995, I too feel that the O of '95 was much more consistent and O'Donnell had better protection from his line.

Agreed, the Offense of '95 was much more productive and dynamic. Chan Gailey used to pound it with Bam Morris, but then have the ability to go 5-wide in the passing game and be productive.

we had the ability to go 5 wide with kordell lined up under center. i think that year we surpassed jim kellys bills with the most productive 2 minute offense in the league.

thigpen, mills, graham, hastings, johnson, breuner, was one heck of a set of targets to throw too. add in all the miracle plays kordell threw in (remember the mad scramble at qb and td toss against the browns?)

despite rod being lost for the season, that was a very fun year.

This years offense has way more talent than that years offense did. Who are you trying to kid?! The only problem with the offense is the oline. We fix that and we cant be stopped. Either way, the O gets it done when it counts as we saw in the cowboy game
