Which NFL team has/had the all-time best passing game?

For starters, I'll throw out the San Diego Chargers (Dan Fouts, Charlie Joiner, Wes Chandler, John Jefferson & Kellen Winslow). from the Air Coryell years.

By Era: 1960's Chargers-Lance Alworth
1970's: Chargers
1980's: Miami (Marino to Clayton & Duper) & SF (Montana to Rice, Taylor, Craig)
1990s: SF
2000s: Indianapolis

All-time? I'd have to go with the SF 49ers. At their peak (or when the NY Giants defense didn't beat the shit out of Montana, which they did a couple of times) they were absolutely a machine.

Agreed.

Kurt Warner, Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce, Az-Zahir Hakim, Ricky Proehl, and Marshall Faulk

Loved watching those games.

Greatest Show on Turf was largely a by product of teams trying to throw everything and the kitchen sink to stop Faulk, leaving everyone else open/single covered.

Not saying Warner wasn't a good QB, but he should give Marshall a percentage of his earnings.

I give the Chargers/Air Coryell the nod. Just because they were the "innovators" in terms of a team coming out and passing the ball vs the traditional run to set up the pass philosophy. It's a shame they never won a Super Bowl.

The 1999 Rams, the 2007 Patriots and the 1998 Vikings all deserve mention for playing exciting ball that sent the rest of the league "back to the drawing board" in the offseason trying to cook up ways to slow them down.

The 1998 Vikings will been forgotten by history (because they lost in the NFC Championship game to an inferior Atlanta team) and then couldn't recapture the magic the next year.

Them and the 2007 Patriots deserved better.

I am torn on this one.

Air Coryell is definitely up there and probably the one team which gets credit for being the foundation of what we see today.  I would not say this was the most powerful or dominant passing, but they were the innovators of getting away from the belief of reliance on the run.

The Greatest Show on Turf with the Rams was also a dominant force for that time period.  This team was set up so defenses had to play on their heels, because they had so many weapons running all over the place.  Some went short, some went long, Faulk would be running a fly pattern.

My third selection would be the Miami Dolphins during the mid-1980's.  This team is sometimes overshadowed due to it not meeting the Super Bowl expectations that was predicted for them, but Marino would just step back and let if fly.  They based that offense on the passing game, and they had the  weapons and were dangerous anywhere on the field.

I would put Air Coryell as number one. Who was their top running back? I know the Rams had Faulk and the Vikings had Smith.
