    Who do you think would win if these 2 teams would play right now?

    2007 Pats. I mean, Cszonka has to be like 50 by now, right?

    On a serious note: The NFL is bigger and faster than it was 30 years ago. It wouldn't even be close. Look at the average weight of the D-Linemen in the league that year. They are linebackers by today's standards.

    Literally, the Patriots, but it's difficult to compare teams from different eras. Players today are physically bigger and stronger, so I don't think it would even be a fair contest.

    Even if you disregarded the 260 lb offensive linemen, the Dolphins would be no match for the Patriots. The Pats would shut down the running attack and force Griese to throw. He wasn't that good.

    Pats would crush them like a tin can.

    Now I don't care if the go undefeated, as long as they win the Superbowl. But wouldn't it be great if we go undefeated and the Dolphins go without a win.

    Right now? The Pats. Most of those Dolphins players are around 60 years of age, or dead.
