Unitas would suck in todays NFL.


Would he? If we're going to acknowledge the strength of LBers in Unitas' era then you have to acknowledge the strength and conditioning today's QB receives as well. They are better prepared to handle the punishment, but the reality is they're pretty well protected so it negates that a bit IMO.

I'm not going to compare eras...but the athletes playing in the NFL today are in a completely different stratosphere on all accounts. It is a significantly faster game with some of the most elite athletes in the world playing. Unitas would be in way over his head as would anyone who played decades ago.
