If I had to pick 12 guys to go behind enemy lines and come back with the scalps they would be as follows:


Rocky Bleier- Sorry, Rock.  Your on this list because somebody has to lead them and you are the only one with actual combat experience.  Another words, you're Lee Marvin.

Ray Lewis - Good with a blade at close quarters.  He would make a good second in command.

Plaxico Burress - Good with a sidearm.

Michael Vick - Anyone who had done time it tough enough.  He also has training with K-9's.  He could train a couple for the mission to sniff out IED's.

Chris Henry - Loves gun play.

"Tank" Johnson - Another Firearms expert.

"Pacman" Jones - Loves a good fight.

Corey Rodgers - Good with a weapon.

Charles Grant - Good in a fight, already been stabbed.

James"Silverback" Harrison - Loves general fighting and beating ass.

Cornell Green - Improvised weapons expert, beat his girlfriend with a broken mop handle.  How can you not take this guy?

Marshawn Lynch - You can never have enough weapons experts on a mission this dangerous.


I'm working on the screenplay.

Where can I comment?
