Break 'em down vs the '09 Saints? IDK, I think the '09 Saints win in a head-to-head matchup just on the how the game has changed and played today, but if you consider each team in their own era, then I give the edge to the '72 Dolphins.

QB: Brees edges Griese in this one just because he's Drew Brees ... but Griese was no slouch (Earl Morrall either) ... '09 Saints

Offense: Both teams had a great running game and receivers ... TIE

Defense: I got to give it to the "No-Name" defense, though it's debatable if they could have withstood the passing onslaughts of today's game ... '72 Dolphins.

Special Teams: Who can forget Garo Ypremium attempting a forward pass? ... TIE

Steakhouses: Don Shula, '72 Dolphins
Shula's does serve a mean steak.

Bet, ... and that would be right around the time for Mudbug V, so keep a fair weather eye out.
