Broncos LB Danny Trevathan: Our Defense Is Better Than The 1985 Bears

Carolina Panthers vs. Denver Broncos

Oh, boy. Good luck trying to convince people on this one. That 1985 Chicago Bears defense was legendary and you’d be hard-pressed to find anybody to agree that the 2015 Broncos defense was better than them. There’s at least 3 Broncos players that believe they have the best defense of all time, even better than the 1985 Bears.

“In my opinion, we’re the greatest defense to ever play the game. Ever,” said inside linebacker Brandon Marshall. “It’s a bold statement, but top to bottom we have the greatest talent — from rushers to safeties to linebackers. Better than anybody’s ever done it.”

He wasn’t the only who thinks they are best defense ever:

“We proved we’re the No. 1 defense,” defensive end Derek Wolfe told the Denver Post. “If you ask me, or anybody on this defense, we’re the best to ever do it.”

“You’re going to ask me? No. 1. No. 1 in my opinion, over ’85 Bears,” Trevathan said, via “If not No. 1, No. 2. I feel like we did a good job playing our games. It wasn’t ever pretty, but when you put it in our defense’s hand we always come up with that win.”


“Sit yo $5 dollar ass down before I make change” – 1985 Bears, probably
