There is a big factor today that was not around in the old days and that is the money. Alot of the rule changes were made for health reasons but some (IMO more than some) of the driving force is due to all the money involved. Protect your investment. Back then the alot of the college guys who played football were passing on the chance to make more money with their degrees. They loved the game. Mind set was different. The times were ruffer. There was no political correctness and such. A mind set. I know there are players today that would love nothing more than go back to the old style and would thrive.

Size was mentioned and I wonder if alot of these big boys would survive without all the TV time outs. Just like when you played high school ball the play did not stop. I can go on and on about the rule changes and the nagative effect TV has had on the game. Not only in football but in all major sports. Changing the game for ratings never sat right with me as a fan of the games. The record books would have thousands of (*) next to records to reflect the changes. If I had my way.

When the owners change a rule think about how the change effects the game. I am a traditionalist. Even with the unies. I would love to see our throw back jerseys at the superbowl. What a statement of arrival that would make for the saints organization. Even if it was to just the jersey running out of that tunnel. They could change before kick off. God knows there is plenty of time. It is just a dream. An old dream.

All in all I love the list of players here. I put mine together to give the old school there just due and stir the s*** a bit.

Saintfan there is some serious Mississippi man love going here. nice list. You can not help it if Mississippi farm boys make good ball players. But you may, just maybe, want to do some deep self reflection about it.

cadilacin welcome again if I did not greet you before. Always need fresh ideas and view points.

QB-Peyton Manning (obviously great, but also goofy as hell, gotta love it)
RB-Deuce (my favorite player in the league)
FB-Lorenzo Neal
WR-Randy Moss and Wayne Chrebet (even though he ain't still playing)
TE-Desmond Clark
OT-Roaf and I used to be a huge Tony Boselli fan
G-definitely Larry Allen (how many times did he win that bench press contest in the Pro Bowl?) and Fanaca
C- LeCharles (honestly feel bad for him, he was an up and coming star)

DE-Charles Grant and Peppers (the guy is a freak, plain and simple)
DT-Warren Sapp (nasty in his prime, didn't he win an MVP?) and Grady Jackson (loved his fatness)
OLB- Joey Porter (mean as hell)
MLB- I love Ray Lewis
CB-Al Harris (always wanted to see him with MM in New Orleans, I love the double Predator look)
S-Brian Dawkins
K-Bill Gramatica (kickers are usually a joke, and there are so many funny things about this guy: hurt himself celebrating, his name is bill when his last name is gramatica and his brother's is Mar-teen, has the biggest nose in the league, etc etc)
P-Ryan Plackemeier

TheDeuce...You gotta be a kool kat, and know the game of football if you can appreciate the greatness of "my boy" AL Harris. I love em too. Not as gifted as some of the top athletes at the position, but you'll be hard pressed to find a more fierce competitor at any position.

Nice list!! I also like how you got Lorenzo Neal blocking for your boy Deuce.
