I guess the offenses from those eras would overshadow any good defense we had then. This defense is just so dominate week in and week out. Its hard to think of any defense in years past being this good.

But the numbers don't lie.
When you're the first team in 90 years to not allow a rushing TD through 14 games, YOUR DEFENSE IS ONE OF THE BEST EVER.
No other team has allowed fewer than 6 this year. That's freaking awesome.
Honestly, I'm the same way. I don't like "best ever" sayings but as I was watching this game and all year long really, I'm thinking about years past and how dominate this defense is against defenses of years past. I just can't remember seeing a 9er defense this awesome in my close to 20 years of watching 49er football.
