Hypothetical: Your Ultimate 11-Man Football Team

Walter Payton Jumps Over Gary Hrivnak in Game

Here’s a hypothetical for you:

If you had to pick 11 players from any era in NFL history to play an 11 game season in which all 11 players started at a different offensive & defensive position each week, who would be the 11 guys on your team?

My team consists largely of bigger running backs with some passing ability.

It strikes me that having some passing ability along with demonstrable ability to block, tackle, run, and catch the ball are the keys to picking such a team.

My team is admittedly light on defenders

Tell me about your hypothetical team in the comments.

Clayton’s Team:

Walter Payton

Jim Brown

John Riggins

Tom Matte

Sammy Baugh

Kordell Stewart

LaDainian Tomlinson

Ben Roethlisberger

Ronnie Lott

Night Train Lane

Chuck Bednarik
