The glitz that went into the success of that 2010 team that won 13 games, was without question the CB combo of Revis & Cromartie. But alot of the success that came from that defense, came from the depth on the front seven. Kris Jenkins, Shaun Ellis, Trevor Pryce, Jason Taylor, Bart Scott, Mike DeVito, B. Thomas, Sione Pouha, etc.. it was a thing of beauty to behold.

Now.. 4 years later, we have completely rebranded that seven-man line.. and I honestly feel as though we're even deeper than we were in 2010. Our secondary might not be the most accomplished group in he NFL. But with what we've got upfront.. they may not need to be. If everyone on defense stays relatively healthy, we might be looking at a very special season.

 

the dif is in 2010 u had the 3rd best defense in the nfl. last season the jets didnt even finish in the top10

NHL on the Fly recently touched on that same notion. By the time Marty turned 29, he had just concluded the 2001 season. At that point, he had won 286 games. Marc Andre Fleury has won nearly 300 games, and is still only 29 years old. Assuming Fleury plays 'till he's Marty's age.. that would leave him with 14 more seasons. If he averages 28 wins per season until his career ends, that would give him nearly 400 more wins. The trick to the whole thing is: Is he part of the long-term plans for Pittsburgh. Coming off a season where he won 39 games, and having posted a Sv% of .915 --I can't see why they wouldn't bring him back.

do u reallythink that m.a.f will have a hof career from this point on though? or win 28 games at 42 yrs old? even on a team w.crosby & malkin, thats still a tough task

If someone gets to 500 wins or so by the age of 36 or so and is showing no signs of slowing down, then I'll start to think about the possibility of someone overtaking Marty. But not until I see it happen.

i agree. its not impossible to break per say, but i need 2 see someone get close before believing it. at this point no one is even on track to get to 600 let alone 700. not even hank

of course Brodeur's records can be broken. Specifically because 1.5 seasons were cancelled due to lockouts.  

 

Sure the recipe to break his Wins record has many, many difficult facets to repeat, but it is possible.

 

Until then, he's the GOAT.

 

And he was never a compiler.  He was "in it to win it" every year, every game.

 

At age 50, I'm confident that the Shutout record won't fall in my lifetime, but that's just my opinion.

I also don't expect to see the wins record fall, but its possible

 

I'll certainly enjoy watching other greats fall short of both !!

agree. no one is saying it would be easy, but there are def scenerios where it would happen. especially in the shootout era
