I don't necessarily think that one type of game was obviously more demanding than another. This modern game requires more dedication from it's athletes, demands that they stay in peak physical form later into their careers. The old game was one where, as a defender, an offensive line could attack your knees while you were engaged while your man tries to gouge your eye out. They had their unique difficulties.
Which is why these comparisons are so tough. If you took either one of these guys in their primes and just dropped them into a different era, they both would likely look confused and out of place.

So don't do that. It's not logical.

Look at that player's dominance and profile in their own era of football. Nothing more, nothing less. I know many of us weren't alive to see them play, but that doesn't render us incapable of understanding their place in the history of the game.

Great point except that almost every player selected was retired before 2000. Particularly in DEs and most of the top players.

Just curious how did some of you guys develop your knowledge about the older players. I think guys like YFS and BBD are all in the 25-30 range, so JW how did you get that knowledge.

Come on man! I'm only 22.

This is your best friend for these threads. I've watched countless hours on it.

hulu.com/nfl

I grew up watching ESPN classic, reading NFL books, and my dad and grandpa were both huge NFL fans. I gained an appreciation for older generations of football at a fairly young age.

Never used Hulu before. That is amazing. I can look at Ravens highlights from 1996! and other stuff too
