I strongly disagree with the all-star lines you put together but since I am a defensive guy I think Id go with the defensive line. You put some playmakers behind that D-line, it could be flat out scary.
My all star DL would look like this though...
LE - Julius Peppers
UT - Tommie Harris
NT - John Henderson
RE - Dwight Freeney
i voted for oline.... but that dline scares the hell out of me haha
i'm going to say i'd like a dominant d-line... provided that my o-line is just a solid bunch of guys with good chemistry. I think that chemistry and cohesion between offensive linemen is probably more important than the sum of each individual's skills.
but a dominating d-line could be absolutely disruptive to the entire flow of the game so i'm definitely going with.
Let's get it done Spaziani.
Belichick might be an a-hole... but I'd rather have an a-hole that wins than one that doesn't.
By stopping the run, pressuring the QB, disrupting plays...you stay on the field for shorter amounts of time, cause more turnovers...create better field position...also...if you are paying a dominant DL, you are paying 4 guys rather than 5....giving you extra money to upgrade your OL :D
I'll take the OL, because it will help both my offense and my defense if used properly. How, you ask? Well, the offensive benefits are obvious (keep the QB upright, open holes for the RB, sustain drives, etc.), and the defensive benefits become apparent when you consider running a ball control offense. The longer your offense has the ball, the less time and therefore less oppurtunities the opposing offense has to make plays. If your offense has the ball for 10 extra minutes, your defense only has to stop the opposing offense for 20 minutes of game time, which would basically cut about 2-3 possessions out of the opposing team's offensive oppurtunities, thereby benefitting your defense.
The problem arises when people use statistics like a drunk uses a lamp post: for support instead of illumination.
If luck is where preparation meets opportunity, then clutch is where failure meets luck.
