    Right... but we're talking about 5 players to build around.

    I like Alonso and Atkins is the best DT in the league, but I would be building around a passing offense and good pass defense.

    When you have elite CBs, you can manage with an average DL. And with a QB like Wilson and weapons like Megatron and Graham you can have an average OL... build around the elite players that can't be reproduced.

    Megatron is the best WR of all time. Sorry, Jerry Rice. Move over. This guy will end up with all your records... and if he had played in your era with your QBs it wouldn't have even been close.

    If your right corner is Patrick Peterson and the other lets say Renaldo Hill, I'm going to say someone is going to get picked on a little bit.

    You can look at it from the other point too a strong front 7 is a weak secondary best friend. Revis isn't winning Tampa Bay any championships anytime soon.

    Marshawn Lynch all day because you didn't invest in your front 7 and Julius Thomas across the middle because of poor safety play. You spent all your cap on those two and you got stuck with Donnie Nickey and Robert Johnson.

    Hahaha... but if you're allowed to get the "next Peyton or Brady in the draft" why am I not allowed to get the next Ronnie Lott?

    My DL would've been average, but built to stop the run. You'd get blown out, brah.

    Exactly, to say I would lose badly because I threw out some different names ridiculous. Look how KC is 8-0 strong run game and good QB management (average cornerbacks). Their is more than 1 way to win in the NFL.

    Dude, I was just messing with you. lol

    But I really don't see how that would be a wise way to build a team. And if you're gonna take a TE, why Thomas and not Graham, Gronk, or Davis? Just sayin'...

    Tired of seeing the same names whose to say in the next five years Alonso and Thomas aren't going to be those household names.
