In March, Michael Baumann of Crashburn Alley posed the question,
“Let’s say that you’re tasked with winning every single one of the next 10 World Series–what 25-man roster do you construct to achieve this goal?”
This question has continued to haunt me. I have put together multiple 25-man baseball rosters and wondered how my team would compete.
I have decided to take this question one step further and apply it to football.
You are tasked with winning every single Super Bowl for the next 10 seasons; what 53-man roster do you put together to carry out this task?
As easy as that question may seem, there are rules one has to follow.
Your team can be made up of any 53 people on the planet.
Money is not an issue. You will be able to sign and re-sign any player of your choosing.
Injuries and aging are a factor. So if you choose a play with a previous injury and the individual re-injures himself, then you lose the services of that athlete.
Once the 53-man roster is complete, players cannot be replaced due to injury or declining skills due to age
No trades and no free agency. The roster you have is your roster for the next 10 seasons with no changes.
You have to win every Super Bowl over the next 10 football seasons or you and your team will be immediately terminated.
So without further ado, let’s take a look at the ultimate 53-man roster I would take into this challenge.
