Default The NFL 100 Anniversary Team is coming in 2019. What changes expected?

The NFL's 100th Anniversary is coming up in a few years. Even though it's six years away, it should be a fun time when it gets here. I'm hoping it's like the 1994 season where various teams wear their throwbacks a good amount of the year with a special NFL patch. Anyways, they'll surely release an All time team roster like they did for the 75th anniversary. Here is the link to that:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa..._All-Time_Team

I'm wondering who will make the list from our current era. I don't think anyone that is drafted now will be able to build enough of a reputation to be placed on that list. If anyone from the current era makes it, they'd have to have already been established for quite some time like Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. I think only four players made it on the 75th anniversary team that were still active in the league.

Just to throw something out there, I'll guess that Brady or Peyton take one of the quarterback spots. I'd be surprised if both make it. I don't believe any of the receivers get replaced. Ray Lewis probably gets a linebacker spot, but I don't know who he would replace. Ed Reed will take a safety spot. Deion Sanders I don't think makes the list. Runningback would be interesting. Does Adrian Peterson make it if he continues his pace? Does Emmit Smith have a chance?

I'd swap Van Buren and OJ at RB for Barry and Peterson.

Tony Gonzalez at TE.

Randy Moss and Calvin Johnson (by 2019) could possibly jump ahead of Alworth and Berry at WR.

Loads of OL candidates: Jon Ogden, Larry Allen, Bruce Matthews etc

Deion, Ed Reed and Ray Lewis on defense.

I'd be really surprised if Alworth was replaced. I think a lot of the senior media that puts this together is going to be either slated towards players of yesteryear and/or will be really skeptical of the current era players due to the rule changes and watered down product in some cases.

These lists/teams become redundant at some point.

Barry Sanders and/or Emmitt Smith should be on it next time around, probably replacing Sayers and either Simpson or Van Buren (not sure, don't know much about Van Buren).

AD is the only RB of the last 10 years to have a chance, but he will likely need to average 1200 yards for the next 6 years to have any chance, which isn't impossible.

Standing the test of time is important to some people. Especially to the people that make the list.

Alworth was really good. Would be on the smaller side in this day and age at around 6ft and 190 but he could really fly.

Some of the players from the old days like Alworth, Billy Cannon and Roger Carr would all be stars today. All 3 ran around a 9.5 100 yd dash which pretty much translates to 4.4 speed.

What about Hester, gotta believe he would be there for either return spot really, but especially punt returner.

Yeah. Alsworth was getting 1300+ seasons in 14 game schedules against defenders who were allowed to abuse receivers up and down the field from start to finish.

I know it's hard with differant eras and so many great players but three guys who would transcend any era: Kenny Houston s, Dick Butkus mlb, Bob Lilly dt.

Simpson won't be back on the team, for reasons obviously outside of his football career.

Yeah, OJ is taboo. Just based on football, he should probably make any all-time list. But that's never happening again.

My gut reaction was to swap out Nitschke for Lewis, but I think they'll want a Lombardi Packer on the roster. Hendricks would probably be the easiest LB to drop.

Of course, they might just do a 100 Greatest Players list, like the NBA did for their 50th Anniversary.
