  • 5 Positions and Players you would build your team around?

    Its the offseason. Forgive me.

    1. QB
    This position is so important. A good QB can definetly make a contender of his team, just by himself. Add a nice supporting cast and you can be dangerous in the play offs every year.

    My pick: Carson Palmer. He is young, throws the best deep ball in the game, and is a leader. The best pure passer behind Manning.

    2. LT
    An underated position to the casual fan...The offense basically revolves around this guy, seeing how he serves to protect the blind side of a QB (usually) and is needed for run blocking.

    My pick: Marcus McNeil. To make it as a Pro Bowl alternate at the left tackle position with perrenial Pro Bowlers as a rookie is outstanding. To protect the blind side of a first time starter at the QB position and make way for the MVP RB is amazing as well. This guy is going to be good for years and years and years.

    3. DE
    I believe games are won and lost in the trenches and having a great defensive end helps out your pass defense and your run defense. Having a great DE really disrupts the offense and having to gameplan against a DE is alot harder than having to gameplan against a great FS or CB.

    My pick: Julius Peppers. What can you say about this guy that hasnt already been said? He is one of the fiercest pass rushers in the league, while still having the size to defend the run well. Not only is he such a balanced DE, he can drop into coverage well. Sucks he is on the Panthers.

    4. MLB
    He is the general of the defense. It is as simple as that. He is the leader that can rile up defense to up their level of play. He is the one that calls the plays.

    My pick: Jonathan Vilma. Young leader in the mold of Ray Lewis. What more can you ask for? Of course he would be playing in a 4-3, and I would build my defense around him, as oppose to the Jets.

    5. DT/FS
    My favorite position is Free Safety, so my choice of FS here might be biased. I think that the FS position brings so much ability to make a play; force a turnover, etc. Does anyone have a % of how many teams win while forcing more turnovers than having giveaways? Also, it allows your CBs to be a bit less than average and allows them to make some mistakes, while still not getting beat. And I put DT here cause games are won and lost in the trenches, and having a DT that can clog up running lanes and is able to get to the passer is a tremdous luxury.

    My pick: Ed Reed/ Jamal Williams. Ed Reed takes away the deep pass and is a threat to score everytime he touches the ball. Jamal Williams disrupts OL and penetrates into the backfield and is very hard to stop.

    Honorable Mentions: CB, RB, WR

    Man. What a team.

    Carson Palmer
    Marcus McNeil
    Julius Peppers
    Jon Vilma
    Ed Reed

    QB, LT, DE, and CB are the premier positions, as a 5th I would take a RB. Too hard to choose specific players.

    Also I love Marcus McNeill, but he is getting overrated. There are quite a few other tackles I would take over him.

    That is correct comahan

      I would take some other tackles over him as well, but if I was building a team I would pick him cause of the good ole age factor.

        Rivers, Tomlinson, Merriman, Gates, Williams.....(sarcastic homerism)

        lol, in seriousness though,

        Running Back: LaDainian Tomlinson

        Quarterback: Carson Palmer

        Cornerback: Champ Bailey

        Left Tackle: Marcus McNeil

        Linebacker: Shawne Merriman

        I make the picks, assuming we're looking for a combination of youth and skill. Everything in football starts with the running game, hence the Tomlinson pick. Palmer is younger than Manning, with almost, arguably the same skills. Shutdown corners are almost impossible to come by, hence Bailey. The tackle pick is made based off youth and potential(not saying he's the best LT in the game, just saying he's the best young one IMO). Merriman is there for his presence as a pass rusher, but that could easily be substituted by a Peppers or dominant DE who can get pressure on the QB.

          QB, LT, DE, RB, NT - but CB and MLB come very close

          DE - Julius Peppers
          RB - Steve Jackson - getting tired of hear lt's name
          NT - Jammal Williams - can keep blockers off your lb's and still get presure on the QB and stuff thje run.

                          Can I clone Jay Cutler 5 times?

                          And also, with McNeil, he's young, but a big reason he slipped is because he has major health concerns regarding his back. He might not have the longest of careers.

                              QB- Tom Brady -Do you want to compete and have a proven player who can win the big game for you? Or a popular, talented passer?
                              DE- Juleus Peppers -A consistend pass rush will cut the opposing QBs decision time in half
                              DT- Tommie Harris - See DE
                              CB - Champ Bailey -Shuts down half of the field, leaving 10 guys to cover the other half
                              LT - Jason Peters -Young, athletic, strong, give him a few years and he will be one of the premier OTs in the league


                              Since RBs are a dime a dozen I chose to leave them off, but it was very hard to pass on LT.

                              Anyways, with my defense you are almost guaranteed to be in the QBs face every passing down with Tommie Harris and Juleus Peppers. Champ shuts out half of the field leaving the QB with one less target, a stacked defense blanketing the other side of the field, and a pass rush consisting of Tommie Harris and Juleus Peppers coming right at him.

                              My offense revolved around Tom Brady who has proven he can win without WRs, as well as Peters opening holes and stuffing the end on the left side.
