While the list is pretty subjective, I thought the top 10 was good. It's was to swap the top two spots, but ESPN admits they struggled with their list as much as we would. I really think the 91 Redskins were higher than 10th as indicated. Sure Rypien had a career year, but if we're taking each team in the year in question - that Redskins team dominated teams. Only team in the top 10 with an opponent w-l record over .500 as well. I would of bumped the 84 Niners down a bit and placed them there. If the Redskins of 91 were at 5 spot (at least, if not higher) then the top 5 teams of all time would be those top 5 IMO. From there you can argue til the cows come home, but I think those 5 were the best reams ever - with perhaps an argument from the 2004 Patriots.
