Its not. I put them under honorable mention for the teams I liked in the past 20 or so years. I think in the past 20 or so years, they deserve mention. But for best ever, no. It just urks me a little when Buffalo fans feel that they were without question the better team. Yes, you had more talent on the field, but we had the better coaching staff, and had we been at full strength, wouldve won by more than 1 point. Our RB was like 40 and ran probably a 5.3 40 time that year. If we were that bad, stop the run. Stop the 40 year old RB. Thats all you had to do to beat us. But they couldnt.
The Broncos didn't need Elway to be great. The way they ran the ball that year, he didnt have to be. That was when Shannahan's ZBS scheme was at its peak. No one could stop it.
That WR core was no joke either. Rod Woodson, Shannon Sharpe, and a guy i like to call "the little engine that could" was a solid trio.
That SB wouldve been alot more exciting had Minny made it. But the curse of Denny Green had to rear its ugly head.
I still think Denver wouldve beat them though.
