Miami's NFL record of 19 straight games without allowing a sack was halted on Oct. 29 at Buffalo

not as impressive as 17-0 but I can't imagine this one to be done, esp with the talent in the NFL.

56 game hitting streak, will probably never be done, steriods or not.

7 no-hitters, doubt that ever happens again.

Ryan's 5,714 strikeouts. To show just how impossible I think this will be to reach, take a look at a longtime strike out man, Roger Clemens. Of all the K's Clemens has in his 24 year career and counting, he's still over 1,000 K's behind Ryan. That's ONE THOUSAND!!! There's just no way anyone will ever get near that mark.

I also don't think anyone will ever break Ryan's single season K mark of 383. Not unless they go back to 4 man rotations. To hit 383 in the 35 starts a starter gets these days, he'd have to average 11 K's per game.

17-0 is a good one, but I think that's doable. What happens if you go 18-0 to technically break that record, but then you lose the Super Bowl to end up 18-1? I guess those old Dolphins claim perfect season?

Hack Wilson had 191 RBIs in 1930. I'm not sure if anyone will ever break that records. Manny Ramirez had 165 back in 1999 and that's the closest anyone has come in the last 70 years.

Excellent points, all the way around.

However, beyond winning streaks or individual accomplishments, which are undoubtedly monumental achievements and deserve due respect, 17-0 represents the perfect season in an elite team sport. That is why, IMO, it is "The Most Hallowed Record in Sports".

Can it be done again? Sure, it's possible...

I agree but it is fun to look at other records that most likely will never be broken .....
