The Steelers had the "Steel Curtain"
The Vikings had the "Purple People Eaters"
The Bears had the "Monsters Of The Midway"
If we won the SB where would you rank the "Legion Of Boom"

"Purple People Eaters"
"The Four Horsemen" - I know, not NFL
"Monsters of Midway"
"America's Team" - Yuck, damn NFL Films dude.
"The three Amigos"
"The Arson Squad" - Damn Mariners bullpen, featuring Bobby Ayala
"The Legion of Boom". I wasn't a big fan of it, seemed too cartoonish but the guys like it so I respect their choice. To me, Browner and Kam were the physical enforcers of the secondary. Without Browner, the spirit is less but could be a silent rallying cry for the group.

That's because some of us are getting old......
To those who weren't around for the Superfriends cartoons it prob seems pretty cool...
Don't forget the "Dome Patrol" (Rickey Jackson, Sam Mills, Vaughn Johnson and Pat Swilling), the only four linebackers from the same team to ALL be named to the Pro Bowl in the same year, 1992.
