Confident Seattle Seahawks defense challenges 2000 Ravens and '85 Bears

Published Add your comment

When your team has just restricted the season's #1 ranked offense to just eight points on the way to a resounding 43-8 Super Bowl win, you are likely to be confident.

And the Seahawks defensive lineman was keen to let everyone know just how good his team's defense has been this season:

"We are the best defense ever.

"We could have played anybody today and have done the same thing," Bennett told reporters following Sundays performance.

While it is impossible to argue against the Seahawks as the most impressive D in the 2013-14 season, the claim that they are the best of all time is likely to be hotly debated.

First off, the 2000 Ravens might have something to say about Bennett's claim. This group restricted teams to just 10.3 points on average per game on the way to the Super Bowl.

Meanwhile older generations, such as the 1985 Chicago Bears and 1976 Pittsburgh Steelers are often cited when the 'best defense' debate surfaces. 

But Bennett and his teammates are not ones to back down in the face of confrontation, and after their performance on Sunday, have certainly staked their claim to take the title.

And it doesn't seem like the Seahawks defense will be easing up anytime soon:

"We are bad about the eight points we gave up. But that's what makes us so great."
