Welcome to the #NFLAnyEra Team - ESPN
Voted on by 20 HoF players, they are revealing 4 each day as to what 20 current players they think would succeed in any era of football.
Our Any Era Team players all exhibit a timeless temperament. They all have a game that would have played well in the 1930s. There are, predictably, four linebackers, but quarterbacks lead the roster with five spots...
The Steelers, who seem to play in black and white, lead all teams with four selections. Of course they do. The Ravens have three. The Vikings landed two players on the Any Era Team, one fewer than the number of wins they had this past season. The Packers have two.
So far they've revealed:
So Peterson, Lewis, Rodgers, Roethlisberger, Polamalu I would assume as locks.
That leaves us 1 QB and 3LBs, 2 Steelers and 1 Packer.
Ward, Harrison, Mathews.
That leaves 4, 1 QB, 2LB.
2, 1 a QB.
I have to go Brady, but will the 20 voters see his toughness and determination that won't leave no matter how much he wins, or will they see his GQ spread, his water slide photo, his goat...
That leaves 1 person of unknown team and unknown position.
It really could be probably one of 20 guys, but my homer guess will be Mankins.
Peterson, Lewis, Rodgers, Roethlisberger, Polamalu, Ward, Harrison, Mathews, Ware, Urlacher, Brady, Mankins.
