    SAN JOSE, Calif. (June 29, 2004) - ArenaBowl XVIII was arguably the best ever played with the SaberCats beating the Rattlers, 69-62, in the highest scoring game in ArenaBowl history. It was a television cleat treat and NBC's national broadcast was a hit with all the scoring.

    NFL's Greatest Offenses
    by RamWraith
    From ESPN:


    1. St. Louis Rams (2000)


    St. Louis averaged 33.8 points per game in 2000, about a point more than in 1999, when the Rams were also an offensive powerhouse, and a couple more than in 2001. Those three years together guarantee the Kurt Warner-Marshall Faulk offense a permanent place in NFL history, but what makes the 2000 season stand out is that the offense did it with relatively little help from the D, which was the worst in the NFL. In their first six games, the Rams averaged 43.7 points a game. Then they were thrown for a bit of a loop when Warner missed five games with a broken pinky.


    But Warner, who played only 11 games, averaged 9.9 yards per pass attempt, and his backup, Trent Green, played eight games that would have been, statistically, the envy of just about any other NFL starter. Together, the two QBs combined for 5,492 yards in the air. Faulk, meanwhile, scored 28 touchdowns; he ran for 1,359 yards, averaging 5.4 yards per carry; he also caught 81 passes for 830 yards, averaging 10.2 yards a catch. Wide receivers Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce each caught 80-plus passes.

    The key here is the Rams' 2000 offense remained great despite Warner's injury and despite the fact every NFL defense knew what was coming. "The Rams created a mystique last year with how explosive they were," said Panthers safety Eugene Robinson late in the season. "Their defense could give up 35 points, and they'd put up 50 points. Everybody was like, 'Oh, man, they're the greatest thing since sliced bread.' Rightfully so. Now, all you need to do is have a very good defense, play sound ball, keep things in front, and don't give up the big play."

    Right.


    2. Washington Redskins (1983)


    The '83 'Skins scored 541 points during the regular season, the second-highest total in NFL history, and, except for their 38-9 Super Bowl loss to the Raiders, never scored fewer than 23 points in a game. How'd they do it? Joe Theismann, John Riggins and the Hogs. Theismann completed 60 percent of his passes for 3,714 yards and 29 TDs. Riggins carried 375 times, bulldozing his way to 1,347 yards and 24 TDs. They had some help, too -- from Joe Washington, who rushed for 772 yards, an average of 5.3 per carry, and caught 47 passes; from wide receiver Charlie Brown, who caught 78 passes for 1,225 yards and eight TDs; from Art Monk, who played only 12 games but caught 47 passes; and from kicker Mark Moseley, who booted 161 points through the uprights.

    3. Minnesota Vikings (1998)


    The 15-1 Vikings broke Washington's offensive scoring mark (see above) in 1998, putting 556 points on the board -- an average of almost 35 per game. Defensive backfields had nightmares before playing the Vikings, having spent the week trying to figure out how to stop both Cris Carter and Randy Moss. They couldn't cheat because running...

    SaberCats win ArenaBowl XVIII

    SaberCats top Rattlers to win ArenaBowl

    By MEL REISNER
    AP SPORTS WRITER

    PHOENIX -- Mark Grieb set a record with eight touchdown passes, James Roe caught five to tie three more records and the San Jose SaberCats beat the Arizona Rattlers 69-62 Sunday for their second ArenaBowl title in three years.

    After nearly an hour of unrelenting offense, the final minute of the Arena Football League championship turned on defense.

    Arizona scored with 31 seconds left to get within 63-62, but coach Danny White opted for a 2-point conversion. Sherdrick Bonner rolled left and passed low to Hunkie Cooper, but San Jose's Omarr Smith broke up the pass.

    Then San Jose guard Chuck Reed took the ensuing onside kick, lumbering 7 yards to score with 30 seconds remaining.

    But Dan Frantz missed the point-after, leaving Arizona within seven points.

    As time ticked off, Bonner found Orshawante Bryant for three first downs - the last a 15-yard catch setting up the Rattlers on the San Jose 2 with two seconds left. Rashied Davis smothered Hunkie Cooper on Arizona's final play, knocking down Bonner's pass as the clock expired.

    San Jose's 2002 championship win came in a 52-14 rout of the rival Rattlers for the most lopsided win in ArenaBowl history. The victory snapped Arizona's 10-game winning streak, which included two regular-season wins over the SaberCats last month to steal the No. 1 playoff seed.

    It also halted a three-game string of losses to Arizona, which knocked San Jose out of last year's playoffs.

    Grieb eclipsed the seven TD passes thrown by Albany's Mike Pawlawski in 1999 and Grand Rapids' Clint Dolezel in 2001.

    Aside from Roe, Grieb hit Fred Coleman for 22- and 2-yard scores, James Hundon had a 33-yard scoring reception and Barry Wagner ran for a TD.

    Bonner set a record with 367 yards passing (Pawlawski, 327), and tossed seven TD passes - four to Siaha Burley and three to Bryant three.

    Cooper and Bo Kelly each rushed for a Rattlers TD.

    Roe's scoring grabs went for 8, 11, 3, 38 and 31 yards. Terrill Shaw of Grand Rapids set the records for scoring (30 points), TDs (five) and TD receptions against Nashville in 2001.

    Roe had four in the first half, and the threat he posed opened up Hundon and Coleman for go-ahead scores in the fourth quarter, breaking 49-49 and 56-56 ties, respectively.

    After Coleman's 2-yard catch made it 63-56 with 3:44 left, Burley returned the kickoff 21 yards to the 17 and capped a short drive with a 9-yard TD reception. But San Jose kept a one-point lead by stopping the two-point try.

    Roe's fourth score was a momentum-changer on a play that began with two seconds left in the second quarter and the score tied at 28.

    Roe caught the ball at midfield and weaved through arm tackles by Kelvin Hunter and Randy Gatewood...

    Aztecs Fall To Lobos 47-24
    by DJRamFan
    Jeff Webb finished with nine catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns.

    Oct. 22, 2005






    SAN DIEGO (AP) - New Mexico's Kole McKamey threw for three touchdowns and ran for another as the Lobos beat San Diego State 47-24 Saturday night.

    New Mexico (5-3, 3-2 Mountain West) won their fifth straight over the Aztecs (3-5, 2-3).

    The Lobos used a nine-play, 89-yard drive to go up 40-10 in the third quarter when McKamey hit Hank Baskett for his second TD reception.

    New Mexico scored on its first five possessions and limited San Diego State to 115 yards total offense as they took a 30-3 lead into halftime.

    Following a 19-yard pass play from McKamey to Baskett, McKamey hit Travis Brown for a 17-yard TD on New Mexico's opening drive.

    Moore had 4-yard touchdown run and Kenny Bird kicked a 39-yard field goal to put New Mexico up 16-0 after one quarter.

    In the second, two more New Mexico touchdowns bookended San Diego State's only points of the half, Garrett Palmer's 43-yard field goal.

    Baskett scored on a 10-yard pass from McKamey, and McKamey scored on a one-yard keeper.

    The Aztecs managed only five first downs to 20 for the Lobos in the first half.

    San Diego State wide receiver Jeff Webb finished with nine catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns.

    Rams: Best NFL Offense of All-Time

    Best NFL offense of all-time

    "Previously, Page 2 has listed the best and worst NFL teams of all time. Now we're going to be a bit one-sided and present our top 10 NFL offenses.
