Buckeyes Fan in Happy ValleyCorrespondent IAugust 5, 2008

Football as the newest sport in the Olympics? Probably not in our lifetime, but watching the "redeem team" gets me salivating when I think of what the NFL dream team could do to opposing countries. I have made a mock starting lineup for what I think would be the perfect mix of star players and role players. Obviously there are no right answers so send in comments to see who would fit in well for Team USA
