The Kickoff

October 24, 2005

Good morning -- Vijay Singh -- With Tiger Woods also failing, you picked a good weekend to miss the cut with no one noticing.


Which Super Bowl champion had the better defense - the 1985 Bears or the 2000 Ravens?

The 2000 Ravens with the NFL record for fewest points per game coupled with the only defense to pitch a Super Bowl shutout [special teams excluded] trumps "Da Bears."

There is only one answer to this question, and it is: "We'll never know." Until someone invents a time machine, that is.

The stats don't lie, Ravens total points allowed - 165 (NFL record), Bears - 198; Ravens total yards allowed - 3,967, Bears - 4,135; Ravens yards allowed per rush - 2.69, Bears - 3.67. To me, it's pretty clear.
