Default 1987 gc roster..it has been said that

modern day football teams would handily beat teams of 25+ years ago due to being more athletic..examining the 1987 roster afresh i have two questions..

1. how bad would our current team beat this team

2. which player/players on the 1987 team would you gladly take again right now.

Don't know but its crazy how much smaller football teams were only 25 years ago. Only 1 player on the team at 300 Ibs and the Oline averaged about 255 while the D-line averaged about 240. Don't think a game between the 2 would even be close.

Not to mention the game has evolved so much since then. It's much more complex now. Lots of teams in that era still only threw about 15 times a game. Our current team would handle them pretty easily. But in that era we had some serious athletes on that team.

I don't think the game would be close. Current team by a lot. Athletes now are way bigger stronger and faster. Especially on the OL and DL. Can you imagine a OT from then trying to block Clowney?

Player I would take is Sterling no doubt

there's some skill players that would still look like great players, namely Sharpe, but the lines from that team would get abused.

Todd Ellis in Fun n Gun, but not zone read. Also, I remember Roy Hart being a beast at NG.

Awesome topic.

That team had an amazing amount of talent. Many of their players would start for us now.

The difference is depth and defensive line. Today's team would wear them down and beat them in the second half.

Which should sound familiar to anyone who watched them in 1987.

This year's team would have beat that team (on their best day) by 30+ points easily. That is a fact.

When he was on though, he was a handful. Just not often enough.

I would have loved to see what Spurrier could have done Tood Ellis and Sterling Sharp. Add Harold Green and later add Robert Brooks and Mike Dingle. I believe Spurrier would have taken these players.

I think it's because the current offensive and defensive lines are much bigger, stronger and more athletic. Players like SS could play now and still be great.
