SuperHero/Football Dream Team

The Counselor is IN:

My friend Greg sent me to an interesting website called the Spirit of Jake. He pointed to the great post The comic book heroes football dream team. He has a list of what comicbook characters make the Dream Team or Pro Bowl. It is a fun read and I suggest checking it out. I would love this to be my fantasy football team. Below is just a sample of this great article.


Our squad employs the trendy zone-blocking scheme popularized by the Denver Broncos, so we’ve gone with a relatively undersized squad of Colossus, Juggernaut, Thor, Rhino, and The Thing. Still, these guys all pack a mean punch and suit their individual positions well. Colossus and the Thing line up at tackle, with the tall, long Ruskie manning the left side to handle the league’s most feared speed rushers and The Thing being your typical, right-side mauler. Juggernaut and Rhino are most effective on the move, so they play guard where they can run traps or pull (think of Lombardi’s old power sweeps). Thor gets the call in the middle. The Thing defines the unit with his gruff, blue-collar mentality." (S.o. Jake)
