    1. 90's Saints (The Dome Patrol)

    i'll go ahead and start defending my saints right now......

    other teams had some better LB's than the Saints, but as a unit the Dome Patrol is up there. no other team has sent all 4...not 3, but 4...of their LB's to the pro bowl in the same year.

    It's alright. It was cool to watch anyway. I don't have a problem with the Saints being number 1. They were such a badass, complete unit.

    We watched it the other day too, the 86 Giants are the ones that I really enjoyed, just the crap that went back and forth between Parcells and LT was gold.

    Adi, where did you expect them to be, looking at the 1-4 teams I think they were placed where they should have been, hell at least your team was up there at all...
