The Greatest Historical Teams mod is a project that was released in 2015 and created by Guamyankee, mee, and NickyJ. This Madden NFL 08 PC modification adds in nearly 300 of the NFL’s greatest teams spanning multiple decades along with portraits, uniforms, and field art. We’re talking some truly great teams such as the 1978 Steelers, 1966 Packers, 1989 49ers, 1995 Cowboys, 2007 Patriots, 1985 Bears, and so many other teams along with thousands of historical players. If you miss the retro teams that the newer Madden games have left out and you own Madden NFL 08 on PC, then you definitely need to check this out.
As with most mods, you need to own a copy of Madden NFL 08 (PC) in order to use the Greatest Historical Teams mod. Also, make sure you read and refer to the “GHT 1.5 Release Notes -Install Instructions” file included with the download to install the mod properly on your game.
Also worth checking out is the message board for the mod which you can find HERE. Finally, below is some gameplay of the Greatest Historical Teams mod featuring the 1976 Oakland Raiders against the 1976 Minnesota Vikings in my video tribute to the late John Madden.
