I would have to choose Peyton Manning, although LT and Shaun Alexander make strong cases too.
I gather you are talking about players so I would say Peyton Manning.
LT! he does it all...he runs, catches, and throws for TD's
I think you have to start with a QB. Of the three on your list, Brady is the youngest and has proven more durable than McNabb. Manning may be the better overall QB, but I took age into account.
And you're a Patriot fan...
All I know is that the Pats won two Super Bowls with Antowain Smith as their running back. There haven't been too many teams that have won it all without a great QB (Trent Dilfer, Brad Johnson, etc, but those teams were known for their Ds). I just think it's a more important position... has nothing to do with which team I like the most. Hey, I didn't put Brady's name in the poll.
LT. No more needed.
Don't tell me your not bias towards Brady, he is your QB, I understand. I bet most Colts fans would take Manning. I'm not saying there is no reason to take either, they are great players, but one of your factors for taking Brady is that you see him every week. If the poll was "which WR would you build a team around" and AJ was on the list, I'd be bias towards him.
trent dilfer and brad johnson weren't that hot
Tom Brady in a heartbeat. He might not put up the numbers and all that jazz, but he's cool under pressure and doesn't get rattled.
He's 9-0 in the postseason, and has a 61%+ completion percentage since 2001. In addition, I read recently that he's already got well over 20 come-from-behind winning drives in the 4th quarter/overtime, and the guy is in his mid 20's!
Even Joe Montana, the man himself, said Brady is the next Joe Montana. And who can argue with three NFL Championships in four years?
Never underestimate the heart of a champion!
I'd pick LT, but RBs have a tendency to wear out by their 30s. A good QB can last well into his late 30's if he's protected and takes care of himself.
Running the ball allows the offense to sustain long drives and also sets up the pass. Id take LT.
I will take LT for $1000 Alex.
LT...Let Me Count the Reasons Why:
1. Great Runner
2. Great Receiver
3. Great Blocker
4. Great Passer
5. Great Guy
When building an NFL team you have to have a good Offenisve line. The most important player on the Oline is the LT. Thus I would select Walter Jones, LT from Seattle. he creates huge holes for Shaun Alexander and can do so for any runner. While a good Qb is nice to have, and a versatile runner would be great, you have to have someone to protect them and open up holes for them.
youre just saying that because youre used to watching the pathetic texans line, if you were a denver fan where they always have a good line youd probably be saying quaterback or some other skill position. If you have a decent o-line with outrageous skill players, then that equals victory
I think i would go with other either Eli Manning or Carson palmer im taking Youth in to consideration.
Denver has a pretty solid line. look at the top rushers and teams, what do they have in common? A Good O-Line. priest has constantly had a good oline in KC. Sae thing for LT in SD and Alexander in Seattle. how about peyton and Edge in Indy or the infmaous Pittsburg line? The li9st goes on and on. Face it, without a Line, an amazing back is average at best hurt a lot at worst.
I completely agree with your notion that to have any success you must have a good line. But that statement proves why LT is so good. The guy had absolutely no line for a few years and was still one of the top performing players in the league.
