    Offseason is boring as hell. I thought it would be fun to put together a dumb little game where any player ever is available to play in BB's scheme. Who would you pick and why? All players assumed in their prime.

    Here's mine:

    Defense
    RE: Reggie White
    NT: Ted Washington
    LE: Richard Seymour

    Joker: Lawrence Taylor
    Will: Ray Lewis
    Mike: Levon Kirkland
    Sam: Ted Hendricks

    LCB: Dick Lane
    RCB: Ronnie Lott
    FS: Ed Reed
    SS: Rodney Harrison

    Offense
    LT: Orlando Pace
    LG: Logan Mankins
    C: Dermontti Dawson
    RG: John Hannah
    RT: Anthony Munoz

    QB: TFB
    RB: Earl Campbell

    TE: Mark Bavarro
    Split End: Stanley Morgan
    Flanker: Jerry Rice
    Slot: Troy Brown


    Defensively, this is a stout, athletic, punishing group. Some athletic freaks, some big bodies, all violent hitters. OLB's have length to clog passing lanes. All front-7 players versatile enabling different sets.

    Offense is ball control with the linemen, and a finesse LT to balance it out. Two great possession guys who are great route guys and the best Patriots receiver ever for good measure. Versatile TE and the GOAT pulling the trigger.

    What say ye, fine folks of patsfans?

    I guess this is a super football geek thread. I just thought it would be a cool way to build a madden-esque fantasy roster for the scheme. It's really cool to think about the kinds of things you could accomplish with this roster.

    Would be interesting to see Night train play under today's rules. From some of the videos I saw on him(He's way before my time lol) he was just mauling people.

    Any 22 without "Mean" Joe Green just doesn't feel right.

    Yeah dude, he was an animal. It's not well known but he was epic in coverage as well. Walk-ons who make it are always the coolest players.
