Which Iconic Sports Teams & Athletes of the Past Could Still Succeed Today?

Listen to Doug Gottlieb (guest-hosting for Colin Cowherd) bring up some of the most iconic sports teams of the past and debate whether or not their talents and strengths of their era could translate to today’s game.

Could the 1985 Chicago Bears, considered by many to be the greatest defense of all time, still stifle modern offenses and keep teams out of the end zone?

Could the 1991 Dallas Cowboys, equipped with one of the greatest ‘Triplets’ ever with Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith, and Michael Irvin still dominate the league like they did in the 90’s?

Could the mid-1990’s Chicago Bulls, which featured Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen, and Dennis Rodman in their prime, win 50-60, even 70 games in the new age brand of basketball that prevents hand-checking on the perimeter?

Could 1999 San Antonio Spurs team with David Robinson and Tim Duncan, arguably the greatest ‘twin towers’ in NBA history, still translate to today where the power forward and center positions are both nearly extent?

Could the late 90’s/early 2000’s St. Louis Rams teams, which featured three Hall of Famers Kurt Warner, Marshall Faulk, and Isaac Bruce, and memorably nicknamed the ‘Greatest Show on Turf’ lead the NFL in scoring in a league with much more speed at the linebacker position?
