Being an NFL fanatic, I’ve always wondered if there is such thing as an unbeatable team; I’m going to do my best to build it right here. I may not have the best players at every position, but I’m going to try and build to certain needs and schemes. So here goes nothing…

The spread offense is the kind of offense that will be used, no huddle and fast paced. Three wideouts, a tight end and one running back will be the format of the system.

QB: Peyton Manning
RB: Barry Sanders
WR1: Randy Moss
WR2: Calvin Johnson Jr.
Slot Receiver: Marvin Harrison
TE: Antonio Gates
LT: Jonathon Odgen
LG: John Hannah
C: Jeff Saturday
RG: Larry Allen
RT: Willie Roaf

I love having two big, athletic wideouts on the outside, creating big matchup problems for almost any defense. At the slot it was between Marvin Harrison and Antonio Brown, Harrison gets the edge – at least until Brown can break his single season reception record. For running a hurry up offense, I felt no one was a better fit than Manning considering he perfected it during his time in Indianapolis. For tight end and running back, I felt that the two guys selected could work in literally any offense, it doesn’t hurt that they are arguably the best to ever do it at their respected positions. The offensive line is pretty much the guys who could flat out block and never were questioned for their toughness mentally and physically.

On the defensive side of the ball, 4-3 is the scheme I will be setting up. Something about having two big tackles attacking and stuffing the run makes for a more physical defense and that’s the angle we are looking for. For positions Defensive End, Linebacker and Safety there won’t be specifics, just guys I believe could flat out dominate any side of the position.

DE: JJ Watt
DE: Bruce Smith
DT: John Randle
DT: Reggie White
LB: Ray Lewis
LB: Lawrence Taylor
LB: Derrick Thomas
S: Ed Reed
S: Steve Atwater
CB: Charles Woodson
CB: Dick Lane

A lot of people will say JJ Watt doesn’t have the work put in to be on this list, and I agreed with that until I looked at the numbers. The guy is on a whole new level and has earned to be on the Perfect Team. The other three guys on the defensive line don’t really need any argument, simply being dominant is what they did. In the LB corps I went with guys who were multi-dimensional and were feared for their whole careers; for Taylor and Lewis on and off the field. Defensive backs are so deep in history that it was hard to pick four guys who were better than the rest. Reed and Woodson have hands better than a lot of the wideouts they covered and were a must for me. Atwater and Lane are legends in their own rights as well and played in a hard hitting era that a lot of people would love to see return to today’s NFL.

I’m not saying this lineup is unstoppable, but if I were to put a team of guys together to run the table, these are the guys I want putting the jersey on. Comment below with a perfect all-time roster of your own!
