WMD – QB Point System

I’ve been in a few debates about Peyton Manning recently. Well, a few more than I usually find myself in that is. Either way, people always talk about Super Bowls. I don’t understand that, because it’s a team sport. Not only is it a team sport, it is the ultimate team sport. Though despite this, I decided I would make a point system for seasonal accomplishments: Super Bowl wins, MVP awards, AP First-Team All-Pros, and Pro Bowls. I say that that the accomplishment of winning one or more Super Bowls only solidifies the case for an already impressive career, however most people out there like to have Super Bowl wins be what defines a players career.

The Los Angeles Jaguars or Bills

It has been known for a while know that the city of Los Angeles was trying to get an NFL team again. According to this article the two teams at the top of the list are the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills. This is no surprise of course but it did make me wonder, how will the divisions be realigned if this happens? The reason this is such a big question is because no matter which one of these two teams ended up making the move they would be going from super far east in the U.S. to the west coast. Now, a little while back I put up a post about the most fuel efficient division alignment trying to show how much the NFL it’s teams could save on transportation costs. This will be different however because I will take into account trying to make the divisions “fair” and won’t switch up the conferences, so the NFC won’t be touched at all.

Let’s start with the Jaguars, because I see them being the most likely team to get moved out to California. Continue reading

Vick to the Eagles

Vick is officially a Philadelphia Eagle.  Weller jumped the gun a tad.

Washington Redskins – Offensive?

On Friday the Washington Redskins won their case in the U.S. Court of Appeals to keep their team name. There has been a court case going on for 17 years, where seven Native Americans have been arguing that having Redskins as their team name is racially offensive. I’m not going to write a full post about this mainly because I’m just curious as to how many people think the Redskins should change their name to something else and also because you can read all about it here. Be sure to vote in my poll and to let me know what you think they should change their name to in a comment if they were to have to change it. Continue reading

My All-Time NFL Team

I actually put this together a couple months ago but I figured it was worth of being put onto this site. This is my All-Time NFL Team, as the title so cleverly suggests. Please keep in mind that I didn’t necessarily pick who I think is the absolute best for each position, but instead I picked players that I thought would work best together, granted a large majority of the time this overlaps with who the best player is at the given position. I also realize that I have this laid out like a depth chart and for all intents and purposes it is, but understand that with a lot of positions it would be on a primarily situational basis to determine who would be in and who wouldn’t be and you’d be splitting hairs to decide who’s actually better anyhow. Also note that for positions where I couldn’t quite make up my mind, I put two players – It’s my list, I can do what I want. With the obvious versatility that this team brings you would be able to run basically any defensive formation as well as any offensive formation, though I was originally taking formations into consideration when selecting players.

If you have any questions about why I picked or left off certain players, feel free to leave a comment and that way I can respond directly on the comment board so that if anyone else has the same question it will all be right there for them.
