1995 Braves WS Rings

Recommended Posts

I just finished a book on the Yankees of the early 90’s. In the book it was pointed out that the Braves had “team of the 90’s” imprinted on their WS rings. Ooof.  Never mind the Blue Jays had already won 2 WS,  beating the Braves in one of them, and the decade was half over. We all know how the rest of the 90’s worked out.  All time stupidity from the Braves there. Serves them right.

Which color did you use for Jeter's face?  It's kind of reddish.  :dunno:

If you watch the Braves clinch the 95 series, Bob Costas anoints them "team of the 90s" LOL.

I struggle greatly with whether or not they were overrated underachievers or all time greats.

1-4 in the Big game says it all. The N.Y. Football Giants played in the championship 5 times between 1958-1963. Didn’t win one of them. Not great.

Glavine, Madddux, Smoltz and Jones are all time great individual players.   But they were not a great team.

The Braves were kind of like the Buffalo Bills. Dominant except for the big game. Both were great teams. No doubt about it.

Disagree.  8 divisions in 9 seasons,  5 pennants. Irony is the weakest regular season team in those 9 seasons is the one that won the WS.  Like Util said,  it would be like saying the Bills weren't a great team.

You're hanging your hat on the Bills?  At least the Braves managed to win 1 WS.  In the end, championships tell the tale.  Great teams get it done.

You saying the Bills weren't great? 

In our opinion, the fact that others may be better on a single day doesn't diminish the greatness of a team over span.

Yes.  I'm saying they weren't great enough to win a Super Bowl.  Not one.

Any way you slice it, they were not the team of the 90’s.

The reason the Bills didn’t win a super bowl is their offense was based on a gimmick. Gimmicks get figured out.

The Bills made 4 super bowls in a row but they didn't beat any great teams in the playoffs.  The AFC beneath them was very weak.

The Bills defense also gave up 20, 37, 52 and 30 points in 4 super bowls.  That sucks as well.

I recall Kelly having multiple turnovers  in a few of those games.

Thurman Thomas lost his helmet

Norwood was wide right

Mark focking Rypien destroyed their secondary

They were 6 1/2 pt favorites against the Giants but lost to Hostetler 

In '92, they played a total for 4 teams with a winning record in the reg season

9 turnovers against the Cowboys, giving up 52 points

Even Leon Lett's all-time dumbassery didn't impact the game

Led the Cowboys 13-6 at halftime, then gave up 24 and lost 30-13

They were absolutely NOT a great team.

Yankees were not relevant in the decade until 1996 and Toronto did absolutely nothing after 1993.

The Yankees had the best record in the AL in 1994 and made the playoffs in 1995. People just say things. And Toronto still had a better decade than the Braves.
