frankly, if we don't give up a rushing TD for an entire regular season it doesn't matter what we do in the postseason or if my grandma was playing QB, that defense would be considered pretty special, possibly all time great just on that one stat alone. No team has given up fewer tahn 4 TD's in, what, 80 years?
In all serioiusness, records like that are nearly as important as Superbowls to me. They immortalize a team and the legend only grows as time goes on. 20 years from now our kids will be talking about the "Fearsome 7" or something that sounds much cooler.
The Alex Smith comment was a joke. With all the talk going on about him right now, I can't help myself.
P.S. In order to become a great of all time D, I do think you have to win a Superbowl.
all-time great, yeah, i think you have to win a Super Bowl. I was reading about the 2000 Ravens defense and there was a comparison between them and the 2000 Titans defense, and it was a pretty favorable matchup, except, I believe, for points allowed. Anyway, no one really remembers that Titans defense as a great one, except for Titans fans, maybe. But that Titans defense didn't break any crazy records either.
Winning a championship validates an accomplishment like that, for sure. We definitely have to come up with a better nickname than "Fearsome 7" though, just in case.
