My answer is, forget the Steelers of the '70s. Today's Pats would get creamed by the Raiders of the '70s. IMO they were one of the great teams of all time. In fact, in talent and types of players at ech position the '70s Raiders were very similar to the '00 Pats.. except they were orders of magnitude meaner. And hit harder. And had more pride, and didn't act like whiners when they lost.

And don't sell the '08 Champs short; they are a lot like our '06 Champs. They did what we did. They earned ever diamond on that ring.
Thank you for that... I seriously appreciate that.

The Raiders and the Steelers of the 70's were the greatest teams in the history of the NFL... in my opinion.
