Default Re: In your opinion, what made the 70's teams so great.....

Even if it is impossible to replicate the kind of HOF talent on the 70's Steelers I am a firm believer that there is alot of qualities that could be used as a blue-print for success today.
I dont think it would be too much of a stretch to say that the modern-day Patriots have attempted to take on board as many of these properties as possible.

1. Team above all else.
2. Ruthless when the game changing window opens
3. Physical Intimidation
4. Mental Intimidation

I dont want to try and drag this onto the Pats topic but I thought the idea of having all the players run out together at the beginning of the SB 4 years ago was inspired.
