    I thought about Bradford instead of Rodgers to be honest, but only because of age.

    I agree with all of these, but I would substitute Jake Long for Demarcus Ware.

    shoulder injury makes me nervous, and I would take Joe Thomas over long if I was going tackle. I was going for elite QB, and the best D in the league.

    1. Aaron Rodgers
    2. Clay Matthews
    3. Dez Bryant
    4. Ndomukong Suh
    5. Demarcus Ware

    I think this defense would blow away the team sack record.

    1. Aaron Rogers
    2. Clay Matthews
    3. Deshawn Jackson (sp?)
    4 .Suh
    5. Micheal Oher (The Raven's are a waste of his talent, I'd like to see what he can do on a higher caliber team)

    ~Adrian Peterson would have been #6. Or swap him for Jackson.

    1. Joe Thomas
    2. A. Rodgers
    3. C. Matthews
    4. Chris Johnson
    5. D. Revis

    Thought about Jake Long at #5 but having a CB like Revis would be too good to pass up.

    A lot would depend on what systems my coaches were going to run. Since I like MM's offense and Capers' defense, I'll assume my team will be running those.
    1. Aaaron Rodgers
    2. Adrian Peterson
    3. Clay Matthews
    4. Suh
    5. Revis
    Suh, Revis, and Peterson are locks no matter what. Matthews is a lock in a 3-4, but not necessarily in a 4-3. Rodgers is my pick in this system or really similar systems based on his knowledge of the system and how well he runs it. I can see arguments for others, especially Rivers, but I'd still have to pick A-Rod in this system.

    Peyton Manning has skills, but his head is what has won him a ton of games. He's the best "field general" in the game, and maybe the best ever. I think A-Rod has the potential to run our system like Manning runs Indy's sytem. We've seen a few glimpses of how crazy-good A-Rod can run this offense. I think that with just a little more time, and having our normal offensive weapons on the field as opposed to being out with injuries, those glimpses will become the norm.
