I'd apply before they are even accredited.


Boy, it really heated up my cockles to wake up to all this Baltimore talk. OK, it's decided, when we all graduate from our respective elite institutions, we'll found JHU School of Law. John Waters will be Professor of Law and Entertainment, Haloti Ngata will be Dean of Admissions, and Shiela Dixon will hold the Chair in Ethics.

It depends on what you want from your middle linebacker.

For protecting this house and justice evasion, take Ray Lewis.

For cola consumption and jersey tossing, pick Mean Joe Greene.

For cheap grill celebrity promotion, Dick Butkus is your guy.

For trou-dropping and general craziness, Mike Singletary has a loose belt.

2000 Ravens = fewest points allowed (165). QED.

1985 Bears: 18-1 overall record; 10 TOTAL points allowed in three playoff games; five defensive Pro-Bowlers (two already in Hall of Fame, one forthcoming).

Ah, yes, my bad (patting chest). My bad.

Which had more impact? A: Ray Lewis' use of HGH to kick start his career (circa 2008) or B: the Steel Curtains rampant use of steroids? I vote B, unless Ray Lewis was on steroids the night he murdered somebody. Hard to top that.

Nightrunner wrote:The Steel Curtain won four Super Bowls. In 1976 (a year in which they did not win the Super Bowl, after Bradshaw was hurt and the offense fell apart), the defense stepped up and DESTROYED everyone they played. During the last 8 games of the season, opponents averaged 3 points per game. Three.

They created more turnovers per game than the 2000 Ravens and the 85 Bears, they allowed fewer yards per game and fewer points per game than either defense, they sent 8 defensive players to the Pro Bowl, and have four members of that defense in the NFL Hall of Fame.

Also, they had this guy:

I've been waiting for the randomness of the Yale thread to return to a comment on which I can chat about.

The Steel Curtain have been maligned by history, since we tend to more kindly remember Super Bowl Champs and their best defensive season came during a year that the offense fell apart. By every metric, the '76 Steelers were as good or better than their epic competitors. The '85 Bears and the '00 Ravens were great defenses, and deserving of praise, but they weren't the #1 defense of all time.


for the love of god, look at the playoff numbers! bears allowed 10 COMBINED points against the best of the NFC and AFC.

Comparing NFL numbers directly across eras without controls (era, opponents, tempo, etc...) is the kind of bad analysis I would not expect to see in a Yale thread. The NFL (more than other sports leagues) does not compare well through eras. :(

All three were great defenses. The Steelers were 'roided up, the Bears were Super Bowl shuffled up, and Ray Lewis killed a guy at a nightclub and ate his heart, giving him additional strength.

How can you compare the 1970's Steelers to either the '85 Bears or the '00 Ravens? The Bears had to play Joe Montana, Jerry Rice, Roger Craig, Dan Marino, Phil Simms, Ron Brown, et al.

The Ravens had to play Emmit Smith, Troy Aikman, Edgerrin James, Payton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Jerome Bettis, Kordell Stewart, Steve Mcnair, Derrick Mason, Eddie George, Terell Davis, Tiki Barber, Rich Gannon, Corey Dillon, et al.

What offensive powerhouses did the Steelers play? Bert Jones? Fran Tarkenton? Not much else. It was a defensive game back then. The Ravens, on the other hand, had to play with the deck stacked against them.

Plus, they played with this guy Image

I really dislike the Pats, but there are a few other teams I'd give this title too before their '85 squad. The 85 Pats may have had the worst Super Bowl performance of all time, but the 2003 Panthers, the 94 Chargers or the 1979 Rams were worse overall teams.

Steel-Curtain-Era NFL Offensive Greats: Roger Staubach, Fran Tarkenton, Larry Czonka, Bob Griese, O.J. Simpson, Tony Dorsett, Earl Campbell, Jim Plunkett, John Riggins, Dan Fouts, Charlie Joiner, Floyd Little, Walter Payton, Steve Largent.

Please note that this list only includes Hall of Famers from offensive skill positions, and excludes the numerous Steeler offensive hall of famers.


But in 1976, of that list the Steelers only played Fran, Dan Fouts, and Charlie Joiner.

Another great that the Steelers didn't play that year was Calvin Hill, a Yalien originally from Baltimore. Full circle.

This is clearly the greatest thread on TLS. I wish the bay area had a respectable football team, or even a player as awesome as Ray Lewis.

This conversation makes no sense to me.

To bring this thread back to Yale and other more important topics: New Haven is in between NY and Boston. If I go to school there will I be surrounded by insufferable Red Sox zombies?

Can't wait for Opening Day next week. . . .

I remember being surrounded by Partriots fans, Red Sox not so much... But my sample size was small.
