    The 25 Greatest Individual Seasons Ever

    You know what the numbers mean even without the names attached: 100, .406, 2,003, 1.12.

    Now we can add Tom Brady's 50 touchdown passes. Athletes talk about playing in a zone -- Brady was there for an entire season, which is why we add his name to our list of 25 greatest individual seasons in sports history:

    I liked the list, and don't disagree with much of it, but omitting Hack Wilson's 1930 season is a crime:

    146 runs scored, 56 HR, 191 RBIs, 3.56 BA.

    I don't think his season was great enough to the number 5 of all time. I bet that his season TD total is beat within the next 10 years. The undefeated season is impressive, but that has more to do with the team than Brady's individual season.

    I'm kind of a homer but how about Daunte of 2004, afterall he did break the all time combined yardage in a season for a QB.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I'd go with it being a big season, but truly doesn't rank up there with the others...
