    Good topic for conjecture Henry:

    Taking the new rules into consideration I'd probably go Danimal in his prime before many of the knee problems. A Wilbur Marshall would be intriguing and of course would love to see Sweetness. The Planks and Butkus would get tossed out in this era.

    If Dagan was here he would have some good reasons for Atkins. I like the Fencik idea as well as the others too.

    Center Jay Hilgenberg would be a huge help. He's a 7 time All-Pro. He sure helped block for Walter Payton - and he'd help set the pocket for Cutler. Flanked by Slauson & Long, we'd have a bulletproof interior line.

    Hilgy should be in the Hall of Fame but it's almost impossible for a center to make it into the Hall.

    Walter Payton. The "roster needs" him, just so we can watch him play again.

    My first choice was Butkus, but I don't know if he would be able to adjust to the more gentler rules of today.

    On offense I'd go with one of the following:
    Bronko Nagurski in at FB, people say its an outdated position, I say you'd have the best rushing offense in the league with bronko lead blocking for you
    Clyde Bulldog Turner at Center. This is one of those, "if he could be extrapolated to the size of a modern player". This would shore up an OL immediately.

    translated to today's NFL, Sid Luckman & Sammy Baugh would be Tom Brady & Peyton Manning........

    George (motherfucking godamned son of a bitching motherfucking) Halas ! He'd want you to say it like that too.

    PLAYER ... COACH ... OWNER ... INVENTOR ... LEGEND !

    Yeah we could put George anywhere on the team and make money. And so could THE NFL he invented.

    Sombody give me a Hupmobile ! Better yet ... sombody give me a cheeseburger !
