Poll: If you were building an offense...
 
Since someone made a poll for defensive players, I figured one might as well be made for offensive players as well...

So, who would you take first to build a team around? I'm sure most people are thinking QB, but if you aren't then feel free to discuss why perhaps a non-QB player would be better suited to build your franchise around (Calvin Johnson perhaps?).

Aaron Rodgers

There isn't much to say about Rodgers other than he has it all: the sexy looks, the sexy arm, and the sexy stats.

Drew Brees

It ain't easy being Drew Breezy, all he did was throw for over 5000 yards last year; the only knock is his height, but I doubt anyone really cares much about that anymore. He has the extra inches where it counts, unlike Jay "4 Inches" Cutler.

Cam Newton

The next big thing in the NFL, he has taken the entire league by storm and looks to build off the best rookie season by a QB in recent memory. His age is obviously the best thing he has going for him, whereas other guys like Tom Brady and Brandon Weeden are probably getting too old to consider in this spot.

Andy Dalton

There are probably doubters, and he obviously isn't at Tom Brady's or even Philip Rivers' level right now; but factor in his age, and the x-factor that an orange-haired QB could potentially bring to your team as the face of the franchise and it's a win-win scenario. He has weaknesses (like being out in the sun), but so did every quarterback at his age. Unlike Cam Newton, he makes his defense play better too which is an added bonus.

Andrew Luck
RG III


The two most hyped prospects to come out in the NFL draft in recent memory; obviously they will suck at times being inexperienced, but the age thing is obviously appealing.

Tim Tebow

The guy wins games, plain and simple; some haters will say that his stats weren't good, but stats are misleading numbers that attempt to deviate from the point. The only stat that applies to Tebow is how many wins he has. Also he's a virgin so you know he's not going to bend you over and **** your team.

Tony Romo

The undrafted Eastern Illinois product always finds away to become a punchline in spite of his ability to churn out prolific seasons; one positive he brings is that he has already been **** on his entire career, so you know he won't start crying when he makes a stupid mistake and fans start booing. Also he brings a lot of paparazzi influence to your team and high-profile relationships which is definitely a positive because hearing about the players personal life is just as fun as watching the games. Mark Sanchez's personal life is probably a little bit more interesting and he's a little bit sexier, but Romo edges him out overall I think.

Joe Flacco

He considers himself the best QB in the NFL, so I think it's only fair to include him on the list in case he sees this poll so he can vote for himself.

Other

There are some other guys like Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Michael Vick, Calvin Johnson, one of the elite runningbacks, that I could see people potentially starting a franchise with, so feel free to add them to the discussion and vote other.

Gotta go with Aaron Rodgers, best QB ive ever had the pleasure of witnessing. Yes, I think what Rodgers has done the last couple years is more impressive than the primes of Brady or either of the Mannings, Steve Young, Brees, Marino, Aikman, and whoever else Im leaving out.

Id be tempted to go with youth and take Cam or Andrew Luck, who I think will both be superstars. And I think Calvin Johnson would honestly be my next choice. Id rather start a franchise with him than any QB besides Rodgers, Luck and Cam.

fenikz 09-18-2012 09:34 PM

i voted for tebow

Ness 09-18-2012 09:37 PM

Well if I'm building a team I'm going with Cam Newton. Andrew Luck would probably be my second choice.

Eazy Picks 09-18-2012 09:37 PM

lol why Tebow and Dalton are on the poll i have no idea

yo123 09-18-2012 09:41 PM

1. Tebow
2. Rodgers
3. Newton
4. Andrew Luck
5. RG3
6. Flacco
7. Brees
8. Romo
9. Dalton

abaddon41_80 09-18-2012 09:54 PM

Luck because he is the best of the younger ones. If I am only looking to be great for five years or so I take Rodgers. Luck will be here for 10 to 15 years, though.

tjsunstein 09-18-2012 09:56 PM

I think a better thread would be with the "skill players" on offense.

Calvin
Foster
McCoy
Rice
Graham
Gronk
Fitz

Obviously, give me Rodgers.

Bob Sanders Dreadlock 09-18-2012 09:59 PM

QB- Give me Cam Newton
Skill position- Calvin Johnson, if i could have a running back it would Ray Rice

Splat 09-18-2012 10:00 PM

Aaron Rodgers and it ain't even close.

In that case I'd rank them

1. Calvin
2. Gronk
3. Rice
4. Graham
5. McCoy
6. Foster
7. Fitz

<3 Fitz but he's much older than all of them.

tjsunstein 09-18-2012 10:05 PM

Is anyone not taking Calvin of the skill players?

yo123 09-18-2012 10:08 PM

Couple of names to add to the skill players list

Hakeem Nicks, Mike Wallace, AJ Green, Julio Jones. I really like DeMarco Murray too but I don't think most would rank him as high as I would among RB's.

diabsoule 09-18-2012 11:07 PM

I'm taking Rodgers

MetSox17 09-18-2012 11:10 PM

Eh, shoulda made a list taking the elite guys off it. If you're wanting a QB for this year and the next couple, no one should choose anyone but Rodgers.

Skill players would be more interesting, but Megatron would be the runaway there as well.

I don't know if i like AJ Green more than most, but he'd probably be my #2 along with Gronk and Graham.

BaLLiN 09-18-2012 11:43 PM

why is tim tebow an option and eli manning isnt...

PoopSandwich 09-18-2012 11:44 PM

I don't know what's more entertaining, the post itself or the people who ask why certain players aren't on the list.

Did anyone actually even read what he said in the body of his post?

It's not complicated. Football's about taking care of the ball. The most INT's Tebow has thrown in a season is 6. The most INT's Eli has thrown in a season is 25. Tebow has 0 picks this year, Eli has 3. See the trend.

I could definitely see AJ Green. I see a lot of Calvin in him. Calvin is still only 26, holy ****. Well he turns 27 in ten days. Calvin's presence alone can do a lot of things for an offense. Plus he can arguably make the QB better.

Well seeing as how he put up pretty damn good stats with the shitshow you all had at QB a few years ago, i'd say yes, he does improve QB play.

Have the Lions played the Jets in recent years? I'm trying to imagine what a Megatron/Revis matchup plays out.

I wanna say they played last year or the year before. Almost sure Revis got the best of him.

edit: 2010 - Calvin had 1 catch for 13 yards. Ouch. Stafford was probably hurt.

They played in 2010. 1 catch for 13 yards. I seem to remember Calvin wasn't a 100 percent but I could be wrong.

Edit - no TACKLE, he wasn't 20/36 240 yrds 2 TDs. That was the game Suh kicked the extra point.

prock 09-18-2012 11:56 PM

I voted Luck, wish I voted Newton, and will never vote Rodgers for anything.

As far as skill positions it has to be Calvin first no matter what. He is the perfect wide out.

niel89 09-19-2012 12:00 AM

Easiest poll ever. Aaron Rodgers is just too obvious. He is only 28 and is proven to be elite. No other option gives that combination. He has a good 7-8 more seasons hopefully of good play.
