How is this even a question? The '86 & '90 teams were dominant. The '07 & '12 weren't even close, they were good and got hot just in time.

^^^^^ truth.... 14-2 going on to win the superbowl is far more dominant than sneaking into the playoffs as wildcard

Different eras.

The days of teams dominating September to February, as we did 86, the Bears the year before, are long gone.

Nowadays, teams have to manage their season with a view to getting hot December/January.

Having said that, for me, overall 86 was the best ever.

wish we had a hybrid Defense of '86 Linebackers and '07 D-Line and 2ndary with Eli, Bavaro, OJ Anderson, Bradshaw and Jacobs backfield with Cruz, Nicks, and Toomer at the Wideouts.

Howard Cross could go out their for Max-Pro or give Mark a break.

Oline could be Oates, Snee, Diehl in his prime, with Boothe and K-Mac in his Prime

86&90 -- and it's not even close. Talent AND hunger -- those teams never would have been waiting to pull a "switch" to get going. They hated losing.

Phil over Eli, and that's not a knock against Eli. Phil didn't have half of the O weapons that Eli has.

86 = dominant team that finished business.
90 = strong veteran team that beat a QB legend who was going for the 3-peat, and then beat a high-powered O in the SB --- all with their back-up QB.

'07&'11 = great STORIES
'86&'90 = great TEAMS.

1990 secondary is was far better than 2007.

And I'm pretty sure you would rather have Jumbo Elliott over Diehl, and William Roberts over Boothe if you ever saw them play.. Lol

For sure. How about Ard the Guard? (had to get that one in)
