Put a different record in the player already mate, if you have to pollute the atmosphere so perennially...

I agree with Caveboy on this one. The worst NFL team is made up of the best of the best. I'd go so far to say that if you gave a top-tier college team five downs they would be still be lucky to finish six points down. Just my opinion.

Have you heard of Bacterial Resistance? Where the weak bacteria are killed off by the use of antibacterials and the strong ones survive? Those stronger bacteria will of course continue living and thus become older. If you mix those older, stronger bacteria with younger, albeit mostly average bacteria, then the older ones will be more likely to survive another encounter with the antibacterial product.

The NFL is full of old, resistant bacteria.

  1. An NFL team consists of the best college players, so a typical NFL team ought to beat a typical college team.
  2. Older NFL players only keep their jobs if they beat out the younger players for a spot on the team. So having older players can only improve a team, assuming the team is wise enough to only keep older players who really are better.
  3. Experience matters in football.

If teams consisted of a random assortment of people pulled from the street, then the younger teams would probably do better. That's not the situation here.

The logic "shouldnt college teams be able to beat NFL teams due to their youth and greatest athleticism?" to me sounds like the logic "shouldn't meat be bad for you since it raises cholesterol when we know that people with heart disease have higher cholesterol". It sounds appealing, but doesn't withstand the rigors of logic. There is an implicit "all else being equal", when all else is not equal.

if it was a legit top 5 BCS team then yes. A team like Alabama, LSU, and Ohio State can hold their own against a mediocre NFL team like the cowboys, and browns.
