Starting QB's both 27 years old.
Both HC were former 49ers OC.



What other similarities?

Reggie White - Clay Matthews
Desmond Howard - Pat Lee

Those are the obvious ones.

Both went out, got a Defensive playmaker in FA (White and Woodson) and then filled in the pieces around those cornerstones.

Both had major injuries and the players that were brought in during mid season to fill in played huge roles.

Both QBs were Super Bowl MVPs.

Oops, wrong thread.

To be more specific, both had an unsung veteran come in during the season and play a big role down the stretch:

'96--Bruce Wilkerson (left tackle)
'10--Howard Green (defensive end)

Also, both teams had a big powerful nose tackle with a lot of personality: Gilbert Brown and B.J. Raji.

I'm sorry but there is no way D-Howard and Pat Lee are similar in no way shape or form at all, or none that I see

Yep, I was thinking Bruce Wilkerson and Andre Rison when he filled in for Robert Brooks. Green was just as immense for us either of those players and arguably had the play of the game by causing the pick six in the 1st quarter.

You could add a Walden, which was signed mid season.. and his contribution in the Bears game in week 17.

I was thinking about him too. He played really well for us in the playoffs.

While there were definitely some similarities, I'd say the path the '10 had to go through was more difficult.

The '96 team was 13-3, had the #1 seed, and had to go through SF at home, Carolina at home, and then New England to win it's Super Bowl. If you remember, the best team arguably on the AFC side that year in Denver, was upset by the Jaguars in the divisional round which probably allowed for a weaker Patriots team (on paper) to get to the Super Bowl.

The '10 team was a #6 seed and had to fight just to get into the playoffs and win 3 straight road games @ Philly (where they have historically struggled), @ Atlanta (where the Falcons have been lights out), and @ Chicago (biggest rival) just to get the Super Bowl to play a pretty good Pittsburgh team who had won 2 Super Bowls in recent years.

I'd say the '10 team, in certain areas was a better team than the '96 squad, and vice versa for other areas.

Overall both were memorable squads that have been the only teams to deliever championships to Green Bay since the merger which says a lot considering where this team was even 20 years ago.

Want the biggest difference?

This current team will have a larger window of opportunity that the 96' club.. the 96' club had a great number of veterans that were in decline..

We have far less on this current club.. and you can see two young leaders on each side developing in Rodgers and Matthews to carry the torch from Driver and Woodson..

The '96 offense relied on consistent, high percentage plays and thus was successful consistently. They didn't go up early, showing how easy it could be, then produce nothing for the next 3.5 quarters only to win on a last minute interception.
The problem with the '96 team was that the defense was constructed based on power, not speed. So it was great at Lambeau, but we couldn't win consistently in domes. Remember the "dome curse?"
Well, today the offense is less consistent due to MM's low percentage "run and shoot" philosophy, but the defense is built for speed. So we are basically a dome team, who is based out of the frozen tundra. Overall, I think it's an advantage over the '96 team.
Power teams were more advantageous in the Lombardi era, when there were fewer domes, but the rules also favored the run game. Defenders could knock a WR down if they wanted to. In '70 the rules changed to favor the passing game. This if for the benefit of TV ratings. The WCO offense was designed to take advantage of this set or rules, just as Lombardi's "Power Sweep" offense was designed based on the old set of rules.
Between the rules favoring the passing game and the advent of domed stadiums with artificial turf, designing your team around the idea of speed is a distinct advantage over designing it based around the idea of power. Even when you run a stupid, low percentage offense that goes into a shell for 3.5 quarters of every game.
