Could the 1969 Chiefs beat the 2007 Colts if they could have ever played each other?

In a word: "No".

The skill level is much higher now. IMO.

I think I would have to agree with you Chiefster.

YES If they used the old rules. I really don't think any QB's today could play in those beat down fest's.They really were brutal back in the day!!!!

True, the QB's are protected a little bit more (ok a lot more) these days. But it is Manning, besides Favre he is the toughest QB playing now.

Even though it pains me to say that my beloved Chiefs could be beat, I think Peyton would pick the 69 boys apart. IMO

...Don't kid yourself; it's just as dirty in the trenches today as it was back then, but I do agree that the players were tougher back then. Today huge salaries has necessitated the feeling that these guys need to be baby coddled; they seem to be out a minimum of at least two to four weeks for what seems to be nothing more then a hang nail comparatively speaking.

Did you hear the advise that Jared Allen gave "Tank" or Turk, one of those two, in the Hard Knocks show? "Kick 'em in the nuts".

Players today are far stronger and much faster than they were then. Manning would throw alot of quick passes and wear-down the lesser conditioned players. Then, late in the game, the Chiefs would be out of gas.

Purely hypothetical, but that's what I would expect.

Agreed; the game has evolved to a much higher standard.

most players back then had 2nd jobs. so the conditioning wasnt anywhere nere as good as today. we`d be wore out by half time.

Hmmm...I'd love to see that game. If you called it on the rules from '69, (i.e. pass interference rules) I don't see Harrison and Wayne having near the success they do in todays game. Peyton is a tough nut, but I'm not so sure his wideouts are.

I've seen a few of your replys but did not see a welcome thread. So, welcome to the Crowd! :)

I ll tell you all what....I just watched the highlight film from the 69 Chiefs and I dont care about the conditioning and blah blah about athletes today. The 69 Chiefs were big and badass and I think they would have half of the Colts starting lineup on the bench injured or scared by halftime. Sure the Colts might be able to run longer, if they dont have a broken leg or cracked ribs. Manning would be cryin after the first hit!! The Chiefs would lay an absolute *** whippin on the Colts no doubt!!

I understand what you're sayin, but the game has undergone a bit of a evolution since then. Not taking anything at all away from our one and only SB victory, but the comparison really is apples and oranges. JMHO

You still have to run the ball and pass the ball and hit the guy that has the ball.

Agreed bud; and Hank Stram was considered to be decades ahead of his time as far as offensive innovation, but the fact of the matter is that players on the whole today are bigger, stronger, faster and more physical IMO.

Yeah, you may have a point there; I was speaking more of the league in general, but I do think that they are more athletic, but I could be wrong and often are. :)
