you can simulate games using teams from different eras... the first I did was the 1993 Cowboys against the '72 dolphins, a game dallas won handily http://www.whatifsports.com/nfl/boxscore.asp?GameID=2013065&ad=1

We've seen this one before.
Interesting:

1991 Lions (12-4, Barry Sanders)
1957 Lions (Last Detroit championship team. Bobby Layne)

Barry got held to 76 total and a TD.
Bobby threw for 275, three TDs, and a pick.


1991, 7
1957, 35

8-o

Yeah, I had the 1991 Lions playing the 2001 Lions to see what Barry could rack up but the games were close, and the 2001'ers won one 0_o

I've played around with this before. It gives better indications if you run it around 10 times (as this employs a sort of "any given Sunday" logic) so the worse team ends up losing more often.
