Is it the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins = 17-0, not 19-0? The 18-1 1985 Chicago Bears? The 1995 Dallas Cowboys led by Emmitt Smith, Troy Aikman, Michael Irvin + Deion who won 3 SB's in 4 years? The 1989 SF 49ers who went 17-2 with Montana and Rice + Lott on D and was the team of the 80's? The 1978 Pittsburgh Steelers who was the team of the 70's and went 17-2? or the 2006 Indianapolis Colts - LOL JUST JOKING but that is my favorite team, they were 10-0 at home overall haha led by Peyton Manning, Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, + Bob Sanders and Dwight Freeney on D. *Regarding the best I think the Cowboys of the 90's were the best - 1995, JMO, with that great O.Line in Larry Allen(OT) and Nate Newton(OG) and the Big 3 + Deion on D. The 2007 New England Patriots blew it, they should've went 19-0 but lost to Eli as huge favorites! Sorry Mother but I am glad they lost because they would've held every record as a team throughout that decade with that 1 win. Tom Brady had his chance at best ever and didn't cease the moment. As the Patriots didn't do anything that the Cowboys hadn't already done, that is win 3 SB's in 4 years, (Pats did it in the 2004 season)(2004 New England Patriots). Cowboys did it first with a better team actually IMO. Can the Denver Broncos this season go undefeated with Peyton Manning?

I do want to add Larry Allen actually played OG for the 1995 Cowboys but played OT as well in other years. Erik Williams was a beast at OT on that team. That Line was the best ever.

peyton/colts = best ''regular-season'' team......E V E R ...!

That is a great thing but then again it isn't LOL. Regular Season is huge in Football because you may have to win 10 or 11 games just to get in the Post Season and that isn't easy. Colts and Pats fans just take that for granted because it happens every year as Luck even won 11 but I will say this Peyton should've won 2 or maybe 3 SB's with Idy. The 2009 SB still stings, that INT at the end sucked!

85 Bears...

IMO the '92 Cowboys were more dominant than the '95 version.

62 Packers...

If Jerry's and Jimmy's egos hadn't gotten in the way, this would be a moot point.

The Raiders won 3 Super Bowls in 7 years and won their division 9 out of 10 years (under John Madden).

Just saying.

I still believe they would have won 4 in a row... and maybe 5.

1978 Steeler's had 9 of their 22 starters elected into the HOF.

Bum Phillips never could open that door.

If Jimmy stayed, definitely would have happened.

The 85 bears single handedly brought the NFL into the realm of Sports Entertainment, ie changing the league forever.

I think they were great. That team got my mom watching Football when I was a kid. They were cocky, great, and bold! I still think the Cowboys from 1992-1995 are the best Ive seen. If Jimmy Johnson doesn't leave after 1993 the Cowboys would've won 4 straight SB's.
