  1. “The 2000 Ravens belong in a discussion with the 2013 Seahawks and 1985 Bears for the title of greatest defense ever.”

    What a terrible statement, MDS.

    First of all, the 2000 Ravens have been a “great defense” for 14 years now. So, if anything, it should read “The 2013 Seahawks belong in a discussion with the 2000 Ravens and the 1985 Bears.”

    But, the 2013 Seahawks DON’T belong with the other two, that’s just the media’s never ending thirst to find the next greatest thing.

    Much like Peyton Manning being the greatest ever, what a joke.
