Bullshit! With the 76 rules Mel Blount and company would had Welker and the rest of the Pats recievers ready to quit by half time. Don't care how many titles they have the Pats and Brady will always suck

All depends on which rules they play by.
If they played with the rules in the 70's, then I think the Steelers defense would dominate the Pats. The top receivers would not make it to get open with Mel Blount bumping and running and Brady would be killed by the sacks and rattled easily.
If you played with today's rules, the Pats would win.
That is why it is hard to compare across times.

I've kicked this around for awhile considering rules, times, training available now and i still have to say the 76 Steelers (although one would never know...).
I would have to think that LB crew and/or Defensive Line would get access to the QB and backfield. Brady rattled in today's games sucks. If they were allowed to hit also, he might not even last the whole game. Who knows? I still think there were modern teams who were really better teams than the 07 Pats anyway.

This is apples vs. lemon pound cake. It is two different eras of football entirely. The guys in the 70's were tough, mean and regular smokers. You look at the old highlights and one thing stands out. Those guys were killing each other a la "Slap-shot" and they were slow. Today's athlete is a scientific creation and marvel. They have been tuned and honed since they were youngsters. They have been given the best that science and modern medicine can offer. They also have better equipment that they use along with their bodies to launch themselves like missiles into one another. Back then, one would get mauled by an arm covered in padding in tape. It would be like being hit a very firm club.

The one thing that I will say is that the Steelers D had a front 4 who could win the line of scrimmage and that's what you need to go against that offense.

Brady doesn't have the balls to face the '76 D. Sissy boy would get killed.

the pats offensive line wouldnt give up a single sack if they played the 70 steelers. Lambert was 220lbs. he wouldnt have a prayer. the players in the 70's were way smaller and the offensive lines of today wouldnt have a hard time stopping them. joe green was only 265lbs

the 07' steelers would kill the 76' steelers. players nowadays are much bigger and faster than they used to be, it's no contest.

that and if we're playing by today's rules expect a 15 yard penalty to be called on every down against the 76' steelers lol.

I tend to agree with this.

I don't care how big, strong or athletic the guys are today, compared to yesterday... they couldn't stay on the field for more than a quarter with the 70's players.

The Steelers and the Raiders of the 70's would destroy these guys that play today.

Joe Green may have only been 265 lbs, but his attitude was 500 lbs. These "me" players of today that only care about $$$ couldn't play with the guys of yesterday... they'd eat them for lunch.

Ain't nobody ever explained to you this simple fact. It ain't the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog that counts! 07 Pats may be big fast dogs, but the 76 Steeler were Pitbulls!
