The 2005 team was a team at their peak. They were just unstoppable when they needed to score. The defense was a big time QB pressure D that was extremely disruptive.
The 2012 team is on the rise still. They are loaded with flat out ballers. Guys like Tate, Okung, Unger, McCoy, Sherman, Earl, Kam and grown even more since their first year. The rookies are amazing. Irvin, Wilson and Wagner are just incredible for the little experience they have in the league. This on top of the young vets continuing to maintain their play.
Where the 05 team was laden with experience, the 12 team is laden with talent, skill and youth. They are basically just bruisers with exceptional speed. We are just being rewarded by their rapid development with some wins that some didn't think we would get out of them.
For me, this team is dangerous because it is like playing with house money. They are extremely confident yet composed, having a lot of fun and know that they can beat anybody.
I think if the 2005 team played the 2012 team, the 2005 team would win, but not by much and they would all be on pain meds and icing up after the game.
Next year is going to be special, really special. This year I am just enjoying the ride.
