Mark Johnson would probably be the QB and wasnt Al Martin a Running Back in college?

I think Mike LaValliere is the Nose Tackle

Maybe if we were a football team, J.R. House would still be around...

Doesn't Ryan Doumit deserve a spot in the lineup? For instance, he could platoon with Wigginton at fullback. At least until he gets hurt.

You have to put Paulino at wide reciever, don't you? He already is one.

I was going to put him as my TE but I decided to not do a full line-up.

Guys, aren't we forgetting the defense? Who'll make up the D-line, linebackers, and secondary?

Mike LaValliere and Daryl Ward are on the D-Line...Jacob Brumfield is at Strong Safety...

Barry Bonds could be the team nutritionist

Actually, if I remember correctly, Al Martin SAID he played football at USC. That was widely talked about on broadcasts, etc.

Then, when the crap about his multiple wives came out, some reporter investigated him further. It turns out he never played at USC.

Ok, so then we make Al Martin the kicker...he gets a uniform and gets to say hes on the team, but is just there to kick...

Or he could be in the team's PR department. He's proven he's adept at spinning lies.

I nominate Brian Giles and Ty Wiggington as linebackers. Jason Kendall can be the free safety, as he appears to like tackling guys much larger than him.

Too bad that J.R. House is no longer around. He would've been a good QB.

It'd be a given that Jose Bautista would be flagged for stupid mistakes--- like an offsides or false start penalty-- 7 or 8 times a game.

Someone like Kris Benson could be the Ryan Leaf of the team.
