Drafting the best NFL accomplishments

With Justify becoming the 13th horse to win the Triple Crown, Monday’s PFT Live used the achievement as the inspiration for one of two drafts.

Question: What is the most impressive accomplishment in NFL history, by a team or an individual?

The video is attached to this blurb. Stats declared me to be the winner over Chris Simms. Twitter seems to agree, so far. But what duo you think?

Check it out, give us your thoughts, and list any accomplishments that you think we missed.

  1. 49ers 5-0 in the SB in the 80s-90s, within a 15 year span. No other NFL can equal that many SB wins without a loss in such a short span of time. Not the Steelers, not the Patriots, and not the Cowboys can equal that. They all took longer to win 5 and they did not win 5 before they lost at least one.

    For individual accomplishment, Jerry Rice. The best WR in the history of football. Set many records that will be difficult to match. Tom Brady with more SB rings than can be fit on one finger. No other quarterback is likely to break that record.

  2. Those were all great picks. Rice’s 22 TDs in 12 games is often forgotten because that was such a strange strike-shortened season but imagine if he would have had four more games. Peterson’s 2012 season belongs because of the fast recovery from the torn ACL and the absolute dearth of offensive talent on that team. Opponents would put 11 guys in the box and couldn’t stop him. He ran for a 75-yard TD on the first carry of 2013 but was never the same after that. Favre’s streak was amazing and will never be broken because of the concussion rules.

  3. San Francisco losing NFC championship games does not mean they accomplished more than a team that won them but lost in the super bowl

  4. I’d say Florio and Simms got it right.

    .. Terrell Davis 1998 is really up there for my $$$

    2008 yards… but missed over 2 games worth of action because Denver was steamrolling their opponents that season.

    Its a near certainty he has the single-season rushing record if not for that.

  5. 49ers 5-0 in the SB in the 80s-90s, within a 15 year span.

    In a time when getting out of the NFC was absurdly hard.

    Landry’s Cowboys
    Gibbs Redskins
    Parcells Giants
    Ditkas Bears

    It was a minefield.

    2 player strikes during that run as well.

  6. please, i will take the steelers four in six years, TWICE BACK TO BACK, you know, when you were allowed to play defense and offense in the same game….as opposed to dink n dunk san fran with admitted cheater jerry ‘i sprayed my gloves with stickum’ rice…and Joe ‘cant call my own plays’ montana….

  7. Hands down – Favre’s iron man streak in a game as brutal as the NFL at a position as venerable as QB. Indiviually nothing more can be said as to how tough a football player was in his career.

    60’s Packers. Won everything thrown at them in 5 of 7 years, including a 3-peat. That’s a crushing dynasty.

    The 49ers would be next though…

  9. What Lombardi did in Green Bay is unparalleled. Took a struggling small town franchise and turned them into a dominant dynasty. 5 NFL titles in 7 years.

  10. Otto Graham taking the Browns to six consecutive NFL Championships, winning three of them? (1950-1955) Yes, there were NFL Championship games before the Super Bowl.

    You nailed it aaron444, anyone of those teams were SB favorites, all the thumbs down you received I bet are patriot fan, to be exact bandwagon patriot fans. Thank goodness they will all be gone soon.

  12. Definitely not the greatest but certainly one of the most overlooked and underrated in my opinion – going to 4 straight super bowls.

    How do you stay consistent with talent, depth (injuries), strategy, etc. for four straight seasons and ALWAYS come out as the best team in your conference. On top of playing 19-20 games every year, while 80% of the league only played 16. Not to mention the devastating collapse that so typically follows a super bowl losing team into the next season. None of that seemed to affect the Bills of the 90s en route to 4 straight conference championships.

    I’m fairly certain we’ll never see a team do that again.

  13. Either the 60’s Packers or the 70’s Steelers. They were beyond just dominant. In an era where the only advantage the offense had was knowing the snap count.
    And there was no disguise in either team. They lined up, you knew what they were going to do, but you just couldn’t stop them.

  14. I’m gonna say Vinny Testaverde throwing a TD pass in 21 consecutive seasons. Not because it is the most impressive, but because I enjoyed watching the guy play and he never seems to get any recognition.

  15. Individual accomplishment. Randy Moss rookie season. Took over the league, reinvented the WR position.
