hopefully falcons beat them since its a divsional game and the vikings pull an upset at home because singleterry will try to win and get all the vikings hopes up next year like when he was here

i think the Titans are the team most likely to beat them. Falcons game is a tossup, but NO is undefeated at home.
If we dont allow any rushing TDs the entire year this will be known as one of the greatest in history ?

i think we can also tie the record for longest streak without a 100 yard rusher.

if we do that, don't allow a rush TD, and continue to give up less than 2 TD's a game, then, yes, I think this defense will have to be considered an all-time great.

IDK, I think you have to win a Superbowl on the back of that defense. If we can do it with Alex Smith, then they should be considered the greatest of all time.

If the defense doesn't allow a rushing TD against the 49ers all year they would be in the discussion of greatest ever. This is probably hard to swallow since the star defensive player is a middle linebacker in a 3-4 scheme. We don't have an Ed Reed, or Troy P or a shut down corner in the backfield. And we don't have a D Ware, or Clay Mathews household QB killing name type either, this team has a bunch of guys who do their job well.
does the no rushing over 100 yds continue into the playoffs or is that just a regular season stat?

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.
