    "Perhaps Shula was just trying to protect the honor of his 1972 Dolphins, the only team to turn in a perfect season. Maybe he was just trying to spark a little debate, start a little bar-room sports argument about the best Super Bowl team ever, anticipating that the Patriots are headed to 16-0 and their fourth Lombardi Trophy.

    So, let's jump in. If the Pats hoist Vince on Feb. 3 in Arizona -- and go undefeated in the process -- let's make no mistake about it: They will be the best Super Bowl team ever. And it won't even be close. Let's compare the 2007 Patriots to three possible contenders for best-ever Super Bowl team: the 1972 Dolphins, the 1985 Bears and the 1989 49ers. "

    Good article. I would quibble with ranking the Bears lower partially based on facing QBs with less than a 100 ranking--the QB rating system is flawed. The 14-2 49ers team was one of the best & most entertaining ever.

    All that being said, if Patriots sweep the beeutches under the rug, and win the Bowl, Patriots should be on the top of that list. The ultimate middle finger to the league, and bolstering the legend of the 2001 - 2007 teams.

    Can't bring myself to read Sal anymore. I swear the guy's editor is in a coma and they haven't gotten around to replacing him, or something.
