this makes it easy for Whiz. I'd just tell them that prior to the game, the '01 Pats would have been high on this list also.
I'm not necessarily buying the Steelers on this list. We were #1 seed, weren't we? Had been to AFCC game the year before? Shouldn't you have gotten your ass kicked in the Super Bowl to be on this list (We certainly did not, and neither did the Panthers)? Are you telling me that no team prior to 1979 sucked?
The Minny Vikes that we beat in '74 and that the Raiders beat in '76 were a lousy team. Tarkenton was their only legit weapon, and the lines were old. Had we run into a decent NFC champ in '74, I think we go down, because Bradshaw was a year away from being ready.
