I'll go for kicker because given our recent history with these clowns, there's no way to go but up!!

Punter/kicker
I can still boot 40yarders both punting and kicking.
Used to practice in the building. It's 30 yards across and I could kick the ball into the top of the building at 30. And the beams across are about as wide as the posts so its easy to practice.

I would do it for room and board.
I used to be able to throw about 60yds dead on. That was long ago.
I look more like the football now. :lol: :lol:

6'0" 210 - 40yd - 4.55 (College days) now 5.0 Sorry but it has been a few years.

Possession receiver!

League minimum - I have to feed my family (There is a tear in my eye as I stated that)

I would want to play DT. But I would glady be the guy who runs out and grabs the tee after kickoffs if they need :grin:

I would play for pennies as long as it was enough to house my family, and feed em that would do for me.

It's been a long time since I played DE we had a bunch of really solid player graduate or use up all eligibility and so I was moved to DT my junior year. I had conference honors at each spot, but the DT just felt right! :grin:

If it was a few years ago I would compete, I hurt my knee at the end of my senior year in College and got married. So playing football took a back seat. I play on a rec team full contact in the fall, but now with my son even that may be a thing of the past!

But since this is a thing of "IF's" I would definately want to play on the D-line preferably at the DT. 6'4' 273lbs

I would have loved to play QB, and I would expect at least an 18 million dollar signing bonus like Peyton!

LMAO, good one Tark!

I am not even going to comment on myself.

But my kids, when I have them, boys or girls are going to get a kicking teacher at the age of 3. They will be groomed for being kickers.

I would like to be a pass rushing defensive end, just one play, and rush in on favre's blindside, and hit him so hard, his family bleeds ...no charge!

Thats about it though. Dont forget I would be raising hell about myself this year and still wanting Nugent!!! :lol: :lol:
That is not a lie. Of course I didnt have 5 Del Rio's trying to block my kicks. :grin: But I could put usually 8 out of 10 on the back wall. The other two looked like a wounded ducks.
I wouldnt have a chance. My knee and ankle(non kicking :roll: ) wouldnt pass the test. And probably a few other tests as well. :shock:

Hmm I guess I would go with what I have always done WR. Besides you get alot of the spot light whether your making big catches, dropping them or getting blown up going over the middle. As for money depends how good I would look to the scouts I guess, but league minimum sounds good enough for me, hell 6 digits for playing football....are you serious?

Backup linemen. League minimum. Man i'd be happy with the league minimum which is really like half a million dollars. :shock:


Even those practice squad players make the pretty penny as well.

I was wondering what a real question was. Now that I know, I would like to see what a fake question is.

I would play for the league minimum and would be the 3rd string QB. Great seats for all the games...I wonder if they would let me drink beer during the game? If not, I would ask for more than the league minimum.

Hmmm... 160lb slot receiver coming across the middle with Ray Lewis hunched low licking his chops...

You better have good health cover! Make sure it covers reattachement and lengthening of limbs!

I played guard and DT in high school. Other then playing some pickup games when I was in the service (Kevlar helmets! ouch) I haven't played since. I would probably be required to pay them!! :oops:

Uhhhh, let's see. I was too small to play anything but RB/CB at age 15, 5'10" 150, than by age 17 I was weighing 195 and they had me playing OT, DT, OLB. Shiat happens when you go from a 5A school to USDESEA in your junior year. Never got to play college but than started playing Semi-Pro at age 22. By 25 I was up to 245 playing all over. Iron-man football is the best. G/C, OT, NT, MLB! As it was, I got to play until age 36, so no complaints there! If I could ever play for the Vikings I would love to play MLB and I'd do it for minimum.

I would like to play WR but the other kids on my flag football team make me play CB/S because I "knock down" the ball more often than I catch it. I would play for free...as long as I got to change in the lockeroom with the boys. ;-)

I would want to play DE and rush the edge and sack Favre for just one play like Rudy and I would do it just for the love of the game.

04-24-2005, 03:26 PM
Just put me as one of the guys that goes head first into the wedge on kick offs. I'm only 5'11" 185, but I would sacrafice every pound on every play. I'd also play just to feed the kids and pay the bills.

Pbvikingsfan
04-24-2005, 04:00 PM
