Just thought I'd drop this idea in the hopes that at least one of the WCG bloggers would find this an interesting idea for a post.
Barring injury or some other fluke, there will probably be talk by years end, of the Packers being the best offensive team of all time. If they win the Super Bowl again, there will definitely be talk of them being the Greatest Team of All-Time. I can't help but wonder what would happen if that Packer team were to step on the same field against the actual Greatest Team of All-Time, the '85 Bears!
Of course we'd be comparing two completely different teams from two completely different eras, but it would still be fun to read a position by position breakdown of the matchups, who'd have the advantage using the current rules, and who'd have the advantage using the rules from the '85 season. How would Aaron Rodger's handle the added pressure in the pocket with the '85 rules, as there weren't as many rules protecting the QB? How much better would McMahon be if he had played with the '11 rules that protect the QB?
So whether or not this idea piques anyone's interest or not, I don't know, but I thought it was worth mentioning.
