    Hey tet! Quick question. Who is the greatest Pittsburgh Steeler of all time? Mean Joe Green?

    Ok. The 1934 and 1942 Chicago Bears had perfect regular seasons but both teams lost in the NFL championship game.

    The 1934 Bears were 13-0 but lost to the NY Giants in the infamous Sneakers Game.

    The 1942 Bears were 11-0 and favored by three TD's in the championship vs the Washington Redskins. The Redskins won in an upset, 14-6.

    You are correct, sir. The 1948 Cleveland Browns went 15-0 and won the AAFC championship.

    Correct so far. There are two more teams in group 1 and one more team in group 2. :-)

    The Boys were not lucky but instead Pittsburg's quarterback, Neil O'Donnell, was no good. He threw three interceptions and the last one sealed the Steeler's doom.

    With a decent quarterback the Steelers might have won but they had no chance with Neil O'Donnell as their quarterback.

    Without using the Internet how many pro football teams have finished the regular season undefeated and untied? How many of these teams finished the entire season, including the postseason, undefeated and untied?

    The Lakers & Celtics have the two best records in the NBA.

    The 49’ers are 8-0

    Is it 1984?

    The Cowboys were only up by 3 points with 4:00 minutes left in the game. The Steelers had the ball, and the momentum. Only a Neil O'Donnell interception sealed it for the Cowboys.

    The score was 13-7 at the half.

    Emmitt Smith had 49 yards rushing. Aikman had 209 yards passing.

    There was no "manhandling", the Steelers didn't play like the Bills. The Cowboys were very lucky to win that game.
    Huh? I wasn't talking about stats. I mean those Cowboys were bigger and stronger than those Steelers. And they did manhandle them. The Steelers were very lucky there weren't any career ending injuries that game.

    The Los Angels Clippers defeated the Los Angels Lakers last night. Good! Hopefully, the first of at least 40 losses for the Lakers. The Clippers are slowing becoming LA's team. If they win an NBA title they will siphon of lots of basketball fans.

    The Bills were a wildcard team and were no match or the 13-3 Cowboys. This was just an embarrassing loss. It would have been even worse if it were not for Leon Lett.

    Super Bowl 27- Cowboys 30, Bills 13
    This game was closer but again the Bills were no match for the much stronger Cowboys. The Cowboys had a +143 point differential to the Bills +87 point differential.
    Those Cowboys manhandled Pittsburgh too. 'No shame in losing to them.

    Those Bills teams were really good teams but in the last three Super Bowl losses they played against vastly superior teams.

    Super Bowl 26-Redskins 37, Bills 24
    The Redskins started the season 11-0 and went 14-2. The two losses were by three points and two points. The second loss was a two point loss to the Eagles in the last game of the regular season where the Redskins benched their starters early. This Redskin team led the NFL in scoring and allowed the second fewest points. They had a +265 point differential, a historic figure. The Bills were simply no match for this forgotten great Redskins team.

    On the Antonio Brown Debacle

    When all the crazy started and spread a bit back, from feet to helmet, I told Joanna, "What if he's not crazy? What if he used the Raiders as a way out of Pittsburgh and now he's going to 'bad rebound girlfriend' them into ending the relationship so he can go where he wanted to all along?"

    She asked, "Where would that be?"

    And I said, "Either KC or NE. He wants a ring. Also, he can get good money on a one year deal with one of them, they're hungry, and he can reform his imagine in a fell swoop. . . Just like that, he beat the contract and made his own rules."

    Am I feeling like Nostradameus today?

    You know that I am.

    What's next in my crystal ball? If he helps the Pats repeat look for him to jump off the aging Brady ship and head to KC, a-la Deion Sanders, to finish his career with a solid contract and a few more rings.

    Crazy? Like a fox.
