The 2008 Lions Would Beat the 1972 Dolphins

I was talking to someone the other day about the way football has changed through the years, and here's a quick way of saying it: The 2008 Lions would beat the 1972 Dolphins.

That year's Dolphins were the only undefeated, untied team ever, and this year's Lions have a good chance of becoming the first 0-16 team. But athletes are so much bigger, stronger and faster today that if we could fit the Lions' entire 53-man roster into a DeLorean, take them back to 1972 and line them up against those Dolphins, Detroit would crush Miami.
