All Non-Patriots Team
Here we go...If you woke up tomorrow and all current pats had emigrated to Russia, how would you restock the roster (starters only), regardless of FA status? (I've tried to only include those whom I perceive to be Patriot-type players).
Here's my take:
QB Jake Delhomme
RB Larry Johnson
WR Steve Smith
WR Hines Ward
WR Rod Smith
TE Antonio Gates
T Walter Jones
T Willie Roaf
G Alan Faneca
G Mike Wahle
C Jeff Saturday
CB Ty Law
CB Marcus Trufant
SS Ed Reed
FS John Lynch
ILB Keith Bullock
ILB Zach Thomas
OLB Grant Wistrom
OLB Jason Taylor
DE Aaron Smith
NT Casey Hampton
DE Philip Daniels
K David Akers
Interesting list...I'd take Carson Palmer & Vilma because these 2 are going to get even better. Call me a fool but i also would take Tiki Barber...always liked that guy.
I'd make 4 changes ...
Palmer for Delhomme
Plaxico Burress for Steve Smith
Lofa Tatupu for Zach Thomas
Chris Gamble for Ty Law
Troy Polamalu - plays hard, is very humble, carries himself like a Patriot.
Delhomme is too yappy and whiney to be a Patriot. The guy constantly points are argues with the referees. I'd agree with the Palmer pick; he seems very humble and not eager to jump in the spotlight.
Merriman has to make this team... LT over Johnson... Troy Polamalu has to make it... Champ bailey over either CB you listed... id pick steve smith, but do you really think he's a Patriots-type guy? palmer, vilma, and tatupu should make it.
ps. who thought plexiglass should make it?? wow? ever watch FB dude?
A 6-5 receiver who posted 76c/1214yds/16.0avg/7td/49fd with the Giants (and who's career average is 56c/896.3yds/16avg/4.8td/40.8fd) .... Yeah, I'd take him.
There may be better choices ... Mostly it's a matter of personal preference. No need to be a d1ck about it.
LT - the ultimate 3 down back ... Reed at FS and Polamalu at SS would keep most receivers out of the middle ....
Tomlinson would be my RB
Vilma and Tatupu at ILB
Reed and Polamalu at safety
Carson at QB
