    It sure didn't look like a Mel Tucker defense that Seattle was sporting though :-)

    8 points allowed, 27 rushing yards, 280 passing yards for SeaHawks

    IIRC, the 85 Bears D held New England to NEGATIVE TOTAL YARDS into the 3rd quarter. The only reason they had 3 pts at half is that Payton fumbled away the 2nd snap of the game deep in our zone. Both great Ds but ill take the Bears version every time. Of course, the rules at the time were less favorable to offense than they are now.

    It's always difficult to judge teams and players for that matter, from different eras. I just figure both defenses ('85 Bears and the '13 Seahawks) were exceptional. FWIW, I thought the '86 defense was even a bit better than the '85 one, even though we didn't do well at all in the playoffs that season.

    Was the 2013 Seattle defense a better overall defense than the 1985 Bears defense? No.

    Was the 2013 Seattle defense more dominant in the Super Bowl that the 1985 Bears defense? Yes. And here's why:

    Seattle thoroughly dominated and nearly matched the Bears' margin of victory against the #1 offense IN THE ENTIRE HISTORY OF THE NFL. The 1985 Patriots offense? Ranked #10 in that season.

    I believe the 84 Bears team with 72 sacks and had both Harris and Bell play was one of the most hardest hitting, intimidating, and dominant of them all. They lacked an offense and it hurt that D.
