    If you bring back Bobby Douglass, then you have to put up protective glass walls for the protection of the fans. That guy threw the ball so damn hard it would go in the crowd and KILL someone. You would also have to bring back George Farmer at WR because he was the only one that could catch that kind of heat. (of course we're showing our age here brudda).

    GREAT suggestion of Kreutz and especially Sayers. Gayle was another artist of the gridiron gallop.

    Brownie, oh ya gotta love Brownie. I used to love watching fencik and Plank play, but could you imagine a Safety tandem with EITHER of those guys AND Mike Brown. Fergettaboutit!!

    I agree. I'll go with Sayers on offense and Dent for defense. On 3rd-and-long, use Sayers as WR. He could have been All-Pro WR if they wanted to use him that way. I agree on Colvin as pass rusher. Wally Chambers would be another to consider. I am so far the only person to mention Wilber Marshall. He had the whole package -- hell of a player IMO.

    So... Annoying...

    Anyways... I have a soft spot for safeties... and even though I am satisfied with our safeties if I had to pick a spot on defense to upgrade, that would be it. Gimme some Gary Fencik. He was like a more bad ass Mike Brown.

    On offense... man I dunno... my first thought is offensive line... but that's boring... so... upgrade at TE... Ditka.

    A lot of the guys we've mentioned in this thread probably couldn't play competitively against today's NFL players. One who I think could, and perform at a high level, is Gary Fencik. In fact, we could sure use a young stud like Fencik against the Vikes and AP this weekend. He was a smart player, as well as a gifted one.

    JABF, hard to say one way or another, put these guys back in the early or mid 1900's and Peppers isn't as tall or weigh as much b/c the weight machines and diet isn't there for him to get that big and fast. Same w/putting those guys in the 2000's, their diet and exercise would have them bigger and stronger also. It's why it's impossible to say what would have happened, and why you cannot think to much about it.

    Dent for me. Or on the Oline Thayer, Covert, Bortz, Hilgenberg, Van Horne. I'd say everyone of those is currently better than the player in their respective positions.

    Mike Brown at Safety or how about Marty Booker at number 2 WR.

    Interestingly no one has mentioned Brian.....

    Brian
    Brian. The babe they called 'Brian',
    He grew,... grew, grew, and grew--
    Grew up to be-- grew up to be
    A boy called 'Brian'--
    A boy called 'Brian'.
    He had arms... and legs... and hands... and feet,
    This boy... whose name was 'Brian',
    And he grew,... grew, grew, and grew--
    Grew up to be--
    Yes, he grew up to be
    A teenager called 'Brian'--
    A teenager called 'Brian',
    And his face became spotty.
    Yes, his face became spotty,
    And his voice dropped down low
    And things started to grow
    On young Brian and show
    He was certainly no--
    No girl named 'Brian',
    Not a girl named 'Brian'.
    And he started to shave
    And have one off the wrist
    And want to see girls
    And go out and get pissed,
    A man called 'Brian'--
    This man called 'Brian'--
    The man they called 'Brian'--
    This man called 'Brian'!
