Lets do something fun...

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; Walter Thomas? I know this is sick but I can't believe this guy has come and gone. Will he return? Was he sent home to get into better shape or get a glass of water. Man, I've never been so ...

JIM TAYLOR was a saint. Got to remeber some of us are old timers. I watch all these guys play. except one but like I said my dad always made me watch any tape on the guy. I would love to see some of todays greats play some of the old timers with the old rules. The new guys would crying foul on every play. Thet would get killed. the game has gotten softer. I will come up with a list of players that are lesser players. lol

I guess I'm a youngster, but today's players would murder the old timers...even without the sophisticated playbooks. Ray Lewis? Urlacher? Reggie? Deuce? There's no debate. A guy like Julius Peppers would do whatever he wanted to Art Shell. DeMarcus Ware would make Jack Lambert look like a JV-er. Ocho Cinco would make old school secondaries look like swiss cheese. They're just too big, too strong, too fast.

Oh ye of little faith. If only you knew of what you speak. Don't go to the bank on your statement. if you never saw guys like Lambert,Ed To Tall Jones,Merlin Olsen,Jack Tatum and a few others play you might want to check them out first.

P.S. I was glad to see someome put Jim Otto on their list.

So true Joesam.
Otto was a beast.
I do not see the guys today adjusting to well to being ruffed up like in the old days. Today if there is blood it makes ESPN. Back then blood was part of the field. Thats why the rules were changed, way to many perment injuries and long term side effects. They really did try to take your head off. Clothes lines and crack back blocks just to name a few. God I do miss some of those hits.
I wonder how some of the great WR today could handle the old fashion bump and run coverage.

respect

I gotta give yall some respect for yall appreciation and knowledge about the history of the game. I finally joined this site because I liked the knowledge that most of yall have.

About the old school Katz... I love em too! Sammy Baugh, whites shoes, Deacon Jones, too tall, Lambert, Gale Sayer's (Reggie's Clone), Jack Tatum, the list goes on. I didn't name many ol' schoolers on my list simply because my favorites or the ones that I watch the most of. Its hard to compare the different era's.
The guys back then were meaner and nastier. The guys of today or faster, and bigger (i don't know if there stronger).

But there are guys that can cross the generations. Ray Lewis would love to play that kind of physical football that they played back then. So would joey porter, Jon Runyan, and plenty more guys. And i'm sure tha Lambert, Gale Sayers, Jim Brown, and Jonny Unitas would be able to dominate in todays game.

I just respect em all!!

All yall katz put together some MEAN teams!! I just wish we could watch them play!!!!!!

REAL TALK!

The best conerback tandem in the league reside in the N.O.
