If the 1996 Packers played the 2020 Packers, who wins?

From last year's appearance on Cheesehead TV, LeRoy Butler answers the question: If the 1996 Packers somehow magically landed in Lambeau back in 2020 to play the modern team, who wins?

1996. Reggie destroys the o-line and the 2020 DBs can’t hang onto a Favre fastball despite numerous opportunities.

1996 all day ... The current team would try & keep it close on D but Brett would find a way . Reggie would cause chaos & like the man said, Howard would have a field day

1996, better defense and better OL and better HC and coaching staff. The '96 Packers had the #1 offense and the #1 defense in the league in 1996. They also. had Desmond Howard returning kickoffs. The '96 Packers would have defeated all of the post Holmgen era Packer teams. They also would have defeated all of Belicheck's SB teams and probably every post Holmgren era SB winner. The team was physically and mentally tough in a way that NFL teams do not seem to be any longer. Thanks, Since ‘61

Our 1996 Super Bowl MVP would tear up the 2020 Special Teams

2020 would have no chance imo. Who is tackling Desmond Howard on special teams? He likely scores every time. We can't block Samson Ekubam, who is stopping Reggie White or Sean Jones? Even Linsley would have been folded up like chair by the Gravedigger. Thats without even mentioning Leroy Butler and what he was capable of.

Rodgers wouldn’t be able to move the offense for a first down in second half. The ‘96 coaches actually made half time adjustments

35 - 10 was being gracious. (No way our FG Unit gets off a kick against '96 team...

2021 STs would give up 20 points alone.

'96 defense might give up an opening drive TD... (Might)

2021 Defense might not have a stop against '96 team offense... (Unless Farve has a 4 - 26 ball...) SMH

Final score: 38 - 7 '96 team...

2020 or 2021 don't deserve to be mentioned in the same sentence as 1996.
