William Perry’s ring could fit others like a watch.

Quite simply the best team in NFL history. No football team played so powerfully against their strongest competition.  In their march through the ’85 playoffs they didn’t give up a point until the Super Bowl. Back to back shutouts in the playoffs? Should have been 3 in a row but an early Payton fumble gave the Patriots the ball at the Chicago 19. Then the Bears ran off 44 straight points and once the defensive starters came out of the game was when the Patriots drove into scoring range. They starters came out to protect against the endzone but they couldn’t hold off the Patriots those final 20 yards when Irving Fryar scored to make it 44-10.  Yet by this time they were no longer being compared to other 1985 performances, they were being compared to some of the best teams in NFL history.  Here is my case on why I think they are the strongest team in NFL history. Care to debate? Bring your “A” game to this argument…

  1. A couple of observations … Payton did fumble but he earned the right to score in the game, not Perry or Mac… Ditka is dumb for not acknowledging that… you’re the head freaking coach. Second, Buddy Ryan’s “46” is the real hero because without him as the architect there would be NO Superbowl trophy. He was so vital that when he left for Philly in 86, they never got back to the SB and although they made it to the Divisional Round in 87 @ home and got upset and then got truly upset by San Fran at home in frigid Solider filed in 88… he was that vital to its success. I’d like to think if LA Raiders or Miami had gotten there I believe it would have been more competitive for sure… but Eason and NE got hot and lucky rode the wave. They sure don’t make them like they used to… 2000 Ravens my ass, LOL.


  2. Hell yes!! They had a killers mentatlity that was unleashed by two fiery coaches in Ditka and Buddy Ryan. Alas, off season distractions, Wilbur Marshall’s departure along w Buddy Ryan leaving for a deserved Head coaching gig, doomed the talk of ‘Dynasty’. But for one year they were the BEST team EVER!
