Greatest Show on Turf.
Yep, and their defense sucked.

If Garoppolo completes the pass to Sanders the 49'ers win and everyone is talking about how great the SF defense is and how Andy Reid chocked again.  These games have a few key plays that determine the outcome.

Or the deep pass by Mahomes late in the fourth, with Bosa inches from a sack.  Game of inches.  

We can point to a number of game-changing moments and decisions (like why didn't they continue to feed Deebo and why didn't Mostert start), but in the end, KC got it done over four quarters.

Games at that level are so close and that's why it irritates me to see the sports media make such a big deal about championships.  They also make it a battle between QB's instead of all 53 players plus coaching staff plus the officials plus blind luck.

if true that would only be one team, but he's wrong they had a great defense

they had 7 interceptions returned for touchdowns, which is 3rd most in nfl history

led the league in sacks and rushing defense, kevin carter had the most sacks in the league

i win again 8)

good teams tend to find a way to win

people say the patriots could be 0 - 9 in super bowls if not for a play here or there, the fact that they were always in a position to win or in contention should tell you the difference between winning and losing is a lot greater than just one play or luck, while most of the teams they played had a short run or a one year wonder only to disappear

Not so fast.  The 2011 NY Giants had the 27th ranked defense.  You lose.

You could make the same excuses for the teams that had great defenses.  The Bears defense played Grogan and the Pats, the Buccaneers played the old man Grbac and the old folks home Raiders (with no 2 week break that year).

Correction Gannon.

Earl this is what happens when you make overstatements.  lol

If defense always wins championships then the 2006 Colts would not have won the Super Bowl.

Your argument has already been debunked.  Great defenses have an advantage, no doubt.  Of the teams that had a #1 ranked defense and made the Super Bowl the record is 8-3.  Big advantage but not impossible to overcome.

like i said they played rex grossman

they also got healthy for the playoffs, both bob sanders and dwight freeney were injured that season and were easily their best defensive players

bob sanders had a short career due to injuries, but when healthy he was as good as any safety ever, he was their troy polamalu

I'm hoping for that Ruggs kid from Alabama, but will be happy if they get any quality WR in the first.

I was yelling at the TV and the ghost of Al Davis when Chucky drafted Ruggs right before my Niners could get him, but I'm happy with the outcome.  I think the Niners will contend again this coming season, if we have an NFL season.   >:(
