The Patriots are a post salary cap team. The Bears weren't. It's hard not to weigh that into consideration making what the Pats did in 2007 even more amazing.

I went with the Pats, although I'd have to change it if the GIants beat them.

I think everyone agrees that's a given.

If we're talking strictly about the players on the team, the 07 Pats. However if it's the organization as a whole, I'd probably reconsider my vote.

The Patriots are a post salary cap team. The Bears weren't. It's hard not to weigh that into consideration making what the Pats did in 2007 even more amazing.

So Moss and company are not making salary consessions for the chance to win a Championship. Sure there is a cap vs. non-cap, but that is a tough battle, there is no saying how players in 1985 would have treated it, would those players have stayed together to win the Super Bowl. There are ways around a cap and the Patriots have done a very good job in keeping their team under the cap while still having a great team, but to make a decision based on cap vs non-cap...that just doesn't cut it for me. As referenced above they still played the same number of 10+ win team and the records of their opponents was similar, so I don't think that weighs as much as you think.

If the 85 Bears had a salary cap, they would have gone 0-16.

Very true, especially considering how much meddling the McCaskeys were doing back then. !+)
The cake is a lie.

There was a website, that I'm sure I got from here, that could statistically pit two teams, from different years, against each other and predict the outcome with yards and everything. All speculation, of course, but it'd be fun if we could find this and see who would win.
