Reading this thread all I could think was how the most unstoppable "clone" team of all time would've been the Sean Taylors. The defense would've been devastating against both the pass and the run. The offense would be explosive. They'd be able to pound the football and the passing game would rack up a ton of YAC.

Thanks! Hands down he's the best all around athlete I've seen in my lifetime. Size, speed ability and heart. They broke the mold when they made him.

As for current players I think the Webbs sound like a top contender along with the Tebows and Vicks.

How about a team of Troy Polamalus or go for a bigger team ala the Brian Urlachers or Ray Lewis'. They may not be that good defending the pass (or throwing the football) but they'd be hard to block and tough to tackle. They'd wear alot of smaller faster teams out.

That is if they can contain those teams early and not fall way behind in a shootout.

I think 11 Cam Newtons would out-skill the Willises. With a little more input we can have a poll.

How is Joe Webb up here? Are we talking about best players or best combine performances?

If so, there are a lot of workout warriors who wouldn't bust a grape. But since we're evaluating physical freaks, I'd put 11 Calvin Johnson's on the field.

6'5
240lbs
42' vertical
11'7 broad jump

oh and

4.35 Forty

Hogman:

Read the first post in the thread. That's where the metric is. Maybe you already did. Webb was nominated last year (Red_One43). He was drafted as a WR and has had strong performances as a QB. 11 of him would be tough to stop.

Gotcha. I see now. I'd have to roll with Megatron given that metric.

How about 11 Gronks? Personally I'm kid of liking the Ed Reeds.

But seriously the best of all-time would be not small runningbacks that can throw. So I would take Walter Payton, Marcus Allen, and of course I can't believe no one has brought up BRIAN MITCHELL!

Hey Dmonk, why would the Vicks win against the Webbs with "expiereience?"

QB dog killer (Michael Vick) can't read a defense and doesn't recognize blitz schemes and Webb has been in the leauge for 2 years so tell me why it would matter.

Well, that was a year ago so it's a closer game now. Maybe Webb wins.
