Lots of websites do a "cap cut all-star team" when they need off-season content, but FOX has done something fun with theirs, comparing the cap cut all-stars to the World Champs position by position and then imagining what a game between the two teams would be like. Two problems: They don't really consider the injury situation with some of the cap cuts like Ty Law and Richie Anderson, and I think the cap cut all-stars would have to make some cap cuts to actually fit under the cap. But I think the writer is pretty accurate on where each team would have an advantage, except he gives too much credit to the cap cut tackles and not enough to the cap cut guards. Dan Neil and Mike Wahle vs. Russ Hochstein and Stephen Neal? That is not a "nail-biter."

Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
