But, if the Pats don't win...is it the biggest CHOKE in history?

these teams played in 2 completely different leagues. the 1970s was part of the football era where a 77 quarterback rating was one of the best in the league that year. 50% completion got teams to playoffs, and the game was dominated by running the ball and stopping the run. although both eras shared some aspects like running the ball is a good asset along with stopping the run as being another...but teams like the patriots,packers, and colts get away with having average running games but having QBs that have passer ratings over 95 consistently and completion ratings over 65%. the 70s were run first pass second, now it is go with what u got.

I know, but all things being equal....rules, nutrition, training...everything....I would love to see that game. It's impossible, but fun to think about.

It was not today's touch football rules but the rules had changed significantly by 1978 (no DL head slap/no DB contact after 5 yards).

Ironically those rules changes that were regarded as being designed to slow down the Steelers resulted in Bradshaw, Swann & Stallworth being turned loose.

The match-up of the best of 2 different eras would be the pre-rules changes '75 Steelers (IMO a better team than the '78 team - not as explosive on passing offense even thiough Swann had 11 TDs, but a running game with a younger Franco & defense at their peak) v. the 07 Pats.

Kinda meaningless, but a very fun website for anybody that isn't aware of it: http://www.whatifsports.com/nfl/

Nothing would be finer than to see Brady lose to both Manning bros. in consecutive seasons, and watch him walk off the field with his head down.
