    Americas Game

    Watched Americas Game last night. It was about the '75 Steelers. After watching it. I firmly believe, that they would tear the present Steelers a new one IMO.

    Nah. The O-Line was a lot smaller and would be penetrated easily by The current one. The never saw a 3-4 either. Also, the spread offense would just butcher them because their Corners other than Blount (who couldn't play CB in today's NFL) probably weren't too good and the safeties weren't so hot in pass coverage.

    I completely beg to differ on this..the guys back then may have been smaller than today's players but they were a helluva lot tougher than any player on any NFL roster today. The Steel Curtain would crush our current OL like they were tin foil.

    Jack Lambert went up against guys that were bigger than him all the time. You can look at the footage to see how that worked out for him.

    Exactly. I realize that the guys are bigger now. But they are not as tough as they were back then. They aren't even as close as being as aggressive.
