1992 Football Dream TeamJune 14, 2012

I watched the great NBA TV documentary on the 1992 Dream Team last night. It should have been an ESPN #30for30, but awesome work by NBA TV. I got to thinking about what if football was an Olympic sport. I remember in the 1996 Olympics commercials by Reebok titled “Gridiron Glory” where they featured Smith trying to make football an Olympic sport. Here is who we think would have been on the 1992 Football dream team if there was one.

QB: John Elway
- Backups: Warren Moon and Dan Marino

A huge controversy would have been that Jim Kelly was left off of the team. At the time the Bills were probably the best offense in all of the NFL.

RB: Barry Sanders
-Backups: Thurman Thomas and Emmitt Smith

Geesh…can you imagine these three in the same backfield. Just for the fans sake, one wishbone play a game would have to be ran with these three in the backfield.

FB: John L. Williams

WR: Jerry Rice and Michael Irvin
-Backups: Haywood Jefferies and Sterling Sharpe

By far the hardest position to select players. Tim Brown, Art Monk, Andre Reed, Gary Clark, Andre Rison, Cris Carter and plenty more WR were left off the Dream Team.

TE: Jay Novacek
-Backup: Marv Cook

LT: Anthony Munoz

LG: Randall McDaniel

C: Bruce Matthews

RG: Mark Schlereth

RT: Jim Lachey

DE: Reggie White

DT: Cortez Kennedy

DT: Jerome Brown (He would die one month before the games and be replaced by Henry Thomas)

DE: Clyde Simmons

Three members of the Philadelphia Eagles front four make the team?!? Unreal.

OLB: Derrick Thomas
Backup: Pat Swilling

ILB: Junior Seau
Backup: Mike Singletary

OLB: Charles Haley
Backup: Greg Lloyd

CB: Deion Sanders and Rod Woodson
Backups: Eric Allen and Darrell Green

FS: Ronnie Lott
Backup: Bennie Blades

SS: Steve Atwater
Backup: Mark Carrier

K: Chip Lohmiller

P: Jeff Gossett

KR/PR: Mel Gray and Desmond Howard

Desmond Howard is the lone college player to make it onto the team after a great Heisman Trophy winning season at Michigan.

Coach: Joe Gibbs

This one was hard, because Marty Schottenheimer was the hot name, but the committee chose to go with experience.

That’s all I got,
