Plot: Play during four great legendary eras of football: 1996, 1968, 1950, and 1932. Time travel with teams of different eras to have fantasy match ups. In 1932 there are 20 man rosters which require most players to play both defense and offense, making you risk your best players on a style that is not their best. The football is larger and harder to throw in 1932, making the choice of whether to run or pass different than in other eras.

In 1950, the rules favor the running game, and with goal post placed in front of the end zone, special post patters were used to run defenders into the posts and set up easy touchdowns. In 1968, the game got a little rougher on receivers who could be hit anywhere on the field until the ball is thrown. Big tough players like Dick Butkis ruled the field and paved the way for modern players.
