      Note: I built my team as complements to each other. So while no, Adrian Peterson is probably better as a RB than Brian Westbrook, Westbrook has elite backfield receiving capabilities and I think is a better complement to LT than AD is. There are other examples of this throughout. Additionally, my team runs an impossible 4-4-4 defense. I realize that.

      LT: Joe Thomas
      LG: Steve Hutchinson
      C: Jeff Saturday
      RG: Leonard Davis
      RT: Jordan Gross (Yes, he plays LT. But he's a natural RT)

      DE: Jared Allen
      DT: Tommy Harris

      DE: Mario Williams

        I think the 4-4-4 has some potential... If it wasn't for those damn referees =|

          I used it for the purposes of making my life easier. I thought it was more fair because roughly the same amount of teams use the 4-3 and the 3-4. Sure, it's slanted towards the former by a bit, but not much. But by using the 4-4 as a theoretical defense to represent the best players, it balances it out. >_>

            A lot of second year players on both of your lists. Don't you think we're giving these guys too much credit too early?

              I have three (Joe Thomas, Mason Crosby, and Patrick Willis). Another two players (Cromartie and Williams) are 3rd year players.

                That seems a bit much but it's hard to argue with Thomas and Cromartie and the rest are justifiable.

                  Hahah a pretty contradictory list since I just couldn't bring myself to choose potential over production in some cases (i.e LT over AD, Allen over mario williams), but for the most part this list is a reflection of who I think has the most talent and ability at each position (i.e Peppers, Harris, andre johnson) and some guys i just had to go with potential to be greats (cromartie, hawk, sepulveda)

                    Yeah, amazingly still to this day hearing his name gives me a sick feeling in my stomach and that FedEx tribute still brings a tear to my eye. It's a good thing I hadn't joined these boards yet when it happened because I would have been banned for all the profanity laced statements regarding those who killed him that I made that day.

                      I think guys get anointed too quickly as HOF's, all-time greats etc.., when in reality there is only a handful of legends playing in each generation and I truly think that physically and (football) mentally S.T. had the total package and was going to flat out dominate the league for a decade. His off-field troubles and questionable temperament and decision making in his personal life were well-documented but from all accounts his child had made him turn the corner and his life and career were coming together. Would have become THE safety of the 2000/2010's. This is totally personal opinion and I'm not trying to start a debate or convince anyone but I think he was going to be a standard against which future safeties coming into the league down the line were going to be compared.

                      btw, as for my list, I was just out for drinks and am half-cut so I reserve the right to change my list tomorrow and I like the idea of creating a roster that complements each other. A little more GM like, rather than just choosing your dream team in a video game

                        Couldn't have said it better myself... This is the link to the FedEx video for those who haven't seen it. I thought it was a great tribute to Sean and everything he meant to us in Washington and, I think, the NFL as a whole.
