    '98.

    The '77 team was pretty good, but that '98 team was arguably one of the greatest teams of any franchise of all time.

        The '98 squad, it had superior talent top to bottom than did the 1977 squad.

            I'd like to see that game!

            Wouldn't it be something if they could play that game SOMEHOW! I'd have to say that the '98 team would win, but I can guarantee you this-that "Orange Crush" defense would've had some moments to shine, yes, even vs. Elway, T.D., Sharpe, etc. I wonder how Morton would've faired vs. Romo, Mobley, Atwater, etc. Too bad that they can't play this game through computers somehow; they probably can!

              No team from the 70's would beat a team from the 90's. With technological advances, players are much faster and stronger and bigger than they were in the 70's. I honestly don't think that game would even be close if it could somehow be played.

                I'd like to test that theory. Are you saying that the Steelers from the 70's, or Cowboys for that matter, wouldn't beat say the current day Cardinals or Browns or Raiders? I think that they'd kill 'em!

                  The 1998 Broncos as they had a much better offense and a good enough Defense.
                  The 1977 Broncos were a poor version of the 2000 Ravens

                    No, they wouldn't. They'd get manhandled. Today's players, as someone pointed out above are bigger, faster, stronger and better. I'd go so far as to say that the '70's boys or steelers would get worked by todays top college programs

                      Denver's 1998 team.

                      Even I will admit that.

                      I really liked Tony Jones and Michael Dean Perry (yes, the Fridge's brother) when they were with the Browns. So, naturally I followed them when they were Broncos.
                      The Browns are gone; I'm not a fan of the Impostors

                      The real Browns are in Baltimore, see?

                          I often hear people say that today's players are bigger, faster, stronger, better, etc. But I don't know if I TOTALLY agree. I mean look at guys like Jack Ham, our own Tom Jackson and Bob Swenson-they were FAST linebackers. Look at Jack Lambert or Randy Gradishar-strong and tenacious. Joe Greene, Rich Jackson, Harvey Martin, Billy Thompson-guys like that are in my opinion equal to guys today. I'd like to hear what others have to say on this subject; very interesting topic!

                              Every one of those guys would be slow and undersized if they were rookies today.
