    Favre might just end up topping off that list by years end, seeing he will play with some other awesome weapons..AD, Shanko, PH, BB, SR, CT, BW, ect ect.......Should be a great show to watch.
    +1 on paper we would have a top 5 offense. Mind you football isn't played on paper. The potential for greatness is there.

    What Favre can do, in the short game alone, would carry this team. Look at any game he played, in his last year with the Pack, he was simply running the short game perfectly (misdirections, screens, slants, shovel passes). If we can get him to play Chiller ball, even a little bit, to reduce his chances down the field, there's no stopping us.

    Still too many ?'s on the OL and WR not to mention QB at this moment in time to put us in the top 5.

    Re: Top 10 NFL offenses of all time

    And back on topic..

    The list is pretty good actually. That Rams team could score on anyone because they had to. As I remember that defence was terrible. Patriots took huge advantage of an easy schedule and enjoyed running up the score when they did not need too. The rams were winning games 34-33 while the pats won 54-0 and were passing in the 4th quarter with 5 minutes left.

    Our 1998 offence was the reason I officially jumped on our bandwagon. Games were on every week and every week I was more and more impressed with this player named Randy Moss. Those were great times.
    We're bringing purple back.

    Re: Top 10 NFL offenses of all time

    I agree with the top 3 I just don't think it's in the right order
    Receiving corps it would go like
    1. Vikes (Carter, Moss, Reed)
    2. Rams (Bruce, Holt, Hakim, Proehl)
    3. Pats (Moss, Welker, Stallworth, Watson)

    RBs
    1. Rams (Faulk)
    2. Vikes (Smith)
    3. Pats (Maroney)

    QBs
    1. Pats (Brady)
    2. Rams (Warner)
    3. Vikes (Cunningham)

    O-line
    1. Vikes (McDaniel, Stringer, Christy, Dixon, Steussie)
    2. Pats (Light, Koppen)
    3. Rams (I have no idea)

    AS you can see from the excellence stats I posted above, it should be

    2000 Rams #1
    1998 Vikings #2
    2007 Patriots #3

    Orlando Pace and Adam Timmerman were both in multiple pro bowls.

    False. The '99 Rams were 6th overall in total defense (and had the #1 rushing defense at 74.3 yards/game. They were also 4th in scoring defense, yielding only 15.1 ppg. The '99 Rams had the total package!

    I always seem to recall though that the Rams defense being weak was a topic of discussion in and around that season. I know that they brought in Lovie Smith to clean it up, but never realized that it was that good in 1999. I do remember that shootout they had with us in the playoffs, which we were, unfortunately, on the wrong side of.

    Solid post.


    Problem is, will he be able to play Chiller ball or will he revert to the gunslinger when/if the opportunity presents itself (ala his last year with GB)?
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
