    Pick your All-Star football team, skilled positions of all time. Here's mine:

    QB-Peyton Manning
    2nd string-Joe Montana
    3rd string-Troy Aikman (wanted to put Marino, but I can't put a legend at 3rd string).

    RB-Gale Sayers
    2RB-Jim Brown

    FB-Mike Allstot
    FB-Darryl "Moose" Johnston

    TE-Kellen Winslow Sr.
    2TE-Tony Gonzalez

    WR-Jerry Rice
    WR-Chris Carter
    Slot-Wes Welker
    WR(Bench)-Michael Irvin
    WR(Bench)-Larry Fitzgerald

    see if your team can match that!

    QB - Joe Montana
    RB - Barry Sanders - Best I've ever seen
    WR - Jerry Rice
    FB -  Jim Brown - He's in the HofF as a FB
    TE - Todd Christiensen - best hands I remember at TE

    Can you imagine a backfield with Barry Sanders and Jim Brown.  Man, that would be awesome.

      wow, I didn't know that.

      What's the RB's name who shared the backfield with him (Jim Brown) in Cleveland, but then was traded to the Redskins (also was the first African American on the Skins' roster).

      and yes, that backfield would be crazy.
