It's odd that the top team on the NYFL list got there after being fined a #1 draft pick and a record amount of money (at the time) for cheating.
Brady has more playoff wins than NYJ post season appearances. I believe he has more wins than at least 25 other teams as well.Consider that the Pats have 7 teams on that list, not a bad body of work..
Consider the Jets...
24. (1968)... 51 years ago of mediocrity and football ineptitude.

He also has more SB appearances than any other team I believe.
No on 85 Bears. Didn't have the secondary depth to deal with Washington and if they stuck with their base D like they did in that MNF Miami game, they would get lit up. Gibbs learned from the Redskins embarrassing loss vs. Chicago in '85 and employed the two-TE set which gave Chicago problems in their '86 and '87 postseason matchups. 1991 Washington was miles better than even those Chicago beaters.89 49ers and 85 Bears would wreck the 91 Skins
Yep, for some reason I had 25 in my head.The numbers really are bordering on the absurd. In his career Brady has more playoff appearances than the Jete and 9 other franchises do in their history, he has more playoff wins than 27 franchises and has appeared in more Super Bowls than any team not named the Patriots.
When I think greatest ever of course mark rypien immediately comes to mind.Highest SRS by a Super Bowl Champion of all time. Highest total DVOA of all time. Their division was stacked too. The 11-5 Cowboys, who would win the Super Bowl the next year. The Giants, who even though they finished 8-8, were reigning Super Bowl champions. And the 10-6 Eagles, who have by far the best defensive DVOA ever recorded (the Redskins were the only team ALL YEAR to gain more than 300 yards against the Eagles defense) 261 point differential which is the 3rd highest of all time. Their 2 losses were by 3 points (gave up a fluke Hail Mary) and 2 points (rested starters since it was week 17 and they home field clinched)
Never really that into lists like this, but even more so something that says the ‘72 dolphins are the best team ever. The 2007 patriots would beat that team by 30 points.
They were 1 if they finished the job.
How far not doing it drops them is impossible quantify.
Everyone has their own definition of great.Many (most?) posters would put the 2007 teams below every patriot SB winner. Actually, by their logic, the team should be behind EVERY Super Bowl winning team.
After all, the 2007 team was a failure, no better than the 2019 Bengals. I believe that someone posted this attitude just last week.
Obviously, the list over-rates the 1972 dolphins. HOWEVER, the rest is a reasonable effort. Super Bowl wins are NOT, are NOT, are NOT all that counts.
