There has been much discussion throughout the history of sports of what team is the greatest. It is always impossible to tell. Stats are mentioned. Theories are discussed. Similar opponents are brought into question. How the teams reacted in different circumstances is discussed.
How would the Packers of the 60's do agains modern teams?
What if the teams could play under the same rules on the same field?
The same thing has been happening the last 7-10 days.
Who is better the 49ers D or the Saints O?
How would the Dome team play if they had to play on grass in the elements?
Which is the bigger weakness Saints D or 9ers O?
We have cited stats and records and examples and debated and debated. Tempers have flared insults where hurled.
How would the '27 Yankees match up with the 90's Yankees?
How would the great Bulls match up with the great Celts and Lakers?
Sadly these are things we will never know.
However, the answer to how will the '11 49ers compare to the '11 Saints? is coming soon.
Only hours away all the debate will be put aside. There will be no more stats to post or arguments to make.
Soon there will just be some mighty men inflicting some cruelty on some who dats. In a few hours the answers will be known!!!!
