    It's fascinating to observe how the game has changed in 40 years. The offensive formations almost exclusively begin with deuce backfield (fullback and halfback), very little slot. And the defensive alignments are so tight, linebackers are almost always hugging the line of scrimmage. Also the lack of speed vs. today's game is so obvious -- white running backs and wide receivers outrunning people up and down the field, etc. Interesting stuff.
