I went back to 1996 and looked at the offensive data for each year thru 2011. Just to see which teams led the league in pts, yards, yards/play, and 1st downs for each year. To see which teams popped up multiple times and what the records were for each stat. I assume the all-time records all would've occurred within this time period.

Points: '07 Pats 36.8, '11 Packers 35, '98 Vikings 34.8
Yards: '11 Saints 467/game, '00 Rams 442, '11 Pats 428
Yards/Play: '00 Rams 7.0, '11 Saints 6.7, '04 Colts 6.7
First Downs: '11 Saints 416, '11 Pats 399, '04 Chiefs 398,

Teams who led the league in these categories:

Pts-Stl-3,KC-2,GB-2,NE-2,NO-2, Den, Min, Ind, Sea, SD,
Yards-NO-4, Stl-3, KC-2,Den-2,SF, Oak,Min,NE,SD
Y/P- Stl-3, NO-3, Min-2,KC-2,Ind-2,GB,Det,SF,Sea, Phi,NE, Dal,SD,Bal
1st Downs-NE-4, Ind-4,KC-2,Den-2,SF,Was,Stl,Oak,NO

Overall Winners:

Arrow Ravens for making this list in '96 with Vinny on a 4-12 team.

QB dominant teams:
Arrow Saints '06, '08-'09, '11...10 Times
Arrow Pats '96, '07-'10...7 times, clean sweep in '07
Arrow Colts '03-'06, '10...7 times, oddly enough never led the league in yards despite Peyton never missing a game.

Dominant All-Around Offenses:
Arrow Broncos '96-98, '00...5 times
Arrow Chiefs '02-'05...8 times, only team with an extended run w/out an elite QB or SB, only team to lead in each category 2 times.
Arrow Rams- '99-'01 greatest show on turf with 10 times including yards, points, and yards/play all three years. Clean sweep in '01

Arrow - Vermeil- his team or the team he built was a constant from '99-'05 when he retired with QB's either not drafted or drafted in a round that doesn't exist anymore.

One Year Wonders:
'98 Vikings...Didn't have the same QB the following year, but wow did they set a precedent.
'11 Packers...Are they a one hit wonder? They have the same QB, but are currently 19th in points and 18th in yards?

The Bills, 49ers, Cowboys, Redskins, and Dolphins had great offenses that ended around the cutoff I used for the newer generation.

Brett Favre? His Packer teams never had an offensive run like the Saints, Pats, or Colts. His '96 and '97 teams had a #1 ranking. He had an elite RB from 2000-2004, and '09. His teams were consistently in the top 5, but he never had elite receiving weapons like Brady, Manning, and Brees or maybe it was just the way offenses evolved after his prime when QB dominated teams started taking over the rankings.

Barry Sanders? worth a personal mention...any Lion team with him on it was worth the price of admission. I don't know that any non QB will ever draw as many viewers from other teams.

Who's your favorite? Most fun to watch? Who had the best run? Best season? Most talent?

Gotta go with rams. Holt, Bruce, Faulk, Pace, Warner all are potential HOFers. Except Faulk he already got in

I went with the Colts. That offense was great every season and it's the only reason they were one of the last teams to lose a game every year. Peyton, Harrison, Clark, Edge, Stokely, Wayne, and that oline. They were damn good and consistent.

Favorite:Chiefs

Most Fun to watch: Rams, followed by Vikings and Chiefs...the others never relied on a good RB and I obviously hate the Donkeys.

Best pure offense:Rams...they turned it over the most, I'd guess they would have the scoring record if they had a different OC than Martz. I'd go Vikings next...they came first before the mega passing era.

Most Talented: Rams, HOF at every position, 2 at WR. Vikings...Chiefs-as many HOF candidates as anyone with Gonzalez, Holmes, Roaf, Waters, and Shields, but fell short of the others at QB/WR.

Best Runs:
Rams '99-'01 was pure dominance
Chiefs '02-'05 is the longest streak leading the league in multiple categories per year...if only they had a defense. Led the league in more categories in a 4 year period than the Colts did in an 8 year period.
Colts '03-10...longest period, but they didn't get a #1 ranking every year.
Saints since '06 are more impressive, but also had years w/out #1 ranking

The Greatest Show on Turf is w/o a doubt the best offense I have ever seen.

In my opinion, 1998 Vikings. But the Packers run should include late 2010 through 2011. Also, it has been only four games, four games into the season for that type of comment in there. And if your going to include 2006-present/2007-present for the Saints and Pats why not include 2009 through present for the Packers?

Because they weren't a league leader until 2011...I'm not saying they won't continue to be dominant, I really don't know, I'm just waiting to see how it plays out....they should continue it, so far they're not.

If you're basing this on TOTAL touchdowns....just to put this in perspective, I'll list the top 4...

'07 Patriots - 75
'11 Packers - 70
'99 Rams - 66
'98 Vikings - 64

The '99 Rams and '07 Patriots were the most fun to watch, but the Rams were like an arena league team. They played 13 of their 19 games indoors....that team was built for a consistent, fast track. The '07 Patriots and '11 Packers could put up points anywhere, in any conditions.

Hard to compare teams from this era to teams like the 98 Vikings and 99-01 Rams....Because obviously we all know that the league was quite different back then compared to how it is now.

The fact that the Vikings and Rams put up those kinds of numbers back then is incredible. It was a lot harder for teams to score like that back then.

With that said...I'd rank them as so:

'99-'01 Rams.....GSOT. Obviously have to go with them. Warner, Faulk, Holt, Bruce.....Not to mention they were the greatest video game team ever on Sega Dreamcast.

'98 Vikings....I have no doubt that they would have won the SB had their kicker not missed the FG against Atlanta.

'07 Patriots....Probably the most dominating offense of the decade. 19-1* Wink

The rams was 8-0 on the road in 2001.....
