    1)That team will have two HOF's....Reggie White and Brett Favre. That's it.
    2)Apparently you have forgotten the New England Pats who won three Super Bowls. The 96 team was a very good team, but to rank it that high smacks of hallucinations.
    3)Your assessment of the '62 Packers is spot on, not only by me and you, but many others.

    So do we ignore your posts because you diss Vince Lombardi and Bart Starr? We've had this discussion ad nauseum. I had the audacity to suggest that maybe, just maybe, Brett Favre has peaked and his attitude has changed, not for the better. I'm sorry if that offends you, but I think I'm closer to the truth than you are. Also, I make my judgements of great players by how many championships they win, not how many T.D.s they throw. John Brodie threw touchdowns like rocks on a lakeshore, but he's not considered the greatest of the era...why?...he never won a championship. Favre won one...lost one. Starr...won five...lost one(1960)

    I truly resent your definitive statements that you know my position and to dismiss my argument simply because you and a some of your buds here happen to agree with you. You are beginning to make a mockery out of your increasingly inane argument.

    You are absolutely wrong about the 96 team. It was a good team, but proved it's lack of distinction when it layed a huge fart against Denver the next year. To compare that team to the team of the 60's with a straight face reveals your true lack of knowledge.

    Just because they are bigger and fatter doesn't mean they are better.
    Dave Robinson was 6'3 and 245....bigger than today's linebackers by and large.

    When you make the above argument you are dissing Vince Lombardi friend.

    2 Different era's of football. The numbers some of the older players put up would not get you into the HOF today.

    Once again it's a "what if" case. They're is no right or wrong answer. Just people in they're 20's and 30's going for one and people's in they're 50's and older going for the other. I think that has to do with it a lot.

    I'm with the "bigger, faster, better" athlete of today, as well as the newer strategies, ect. I'm thinking the '96 defence just may have had a teensy weensy chance of nullifying the power sweep.

    How was my comment a diss toward the great Vince Lombardi? I don't get it. I'm saying that the more athletic team will probably win out and that is definitely the '96 Packers over any team the Packers have had IN MY OPINION WITH ALL DUE RESPECT TO ANYONE WHO MAY DISAGREE INCLUDING THE GREAT VINCENT T. LOMBARDI.

    Obviously you didn't read my post or choose not to comment on that. I never dissed Lombardi or Starr. They are two of the greatest. I said they were the more dominant team. I'm about your age, but I don't feel it necessary to sit back in my rocker and spin about how everything was better back in my day. The NFL player is much more refined, talented, bigger and faster. That's just the way it is. Deal with your immortality.

    You only judge QB's by championships won. So you do think that Dilfer was a better QB than Marino? Why not address that part of my post? So you would take back your atatement earlier that Payton Manning is better than Favre? How so? By titles won? How about the part about what one of yours and mine heroes, Jerry Kramer said. Address Jerry Kramers statement.

    Face it teams 30 years ago couldn't compete now and the Packers of '96 wouldn't be able to compete in the NFL of 2026. Sorry! Which is why your can't say who was better. Just who was more dominant in there era. And I don't think any team will ever be as dominant as the Lombardi Packers.
