    Peter King's 2007 NFL "Dream Team"

    Sports Illustrated is apparently doing a "Dream Team" bit on their website.
    King has picked out his Dream Team for 2007 and a couple Vikings made the list.

    Peyton Manning won the big one, so he's my starter

    By Peter King

    This is such a magnificent game today, with so many great players, and such great skill and athleticism, that picking a team is bound to leave great players off the starting 22. I tried to pick the 22 guys playing the best right now, not the 22 most likely bound for Canton one day.

    It's an interesting argument. Torry Holt vs. Marvin Harrison. Pick one. I picked Holt because I think he's faster, has slightly better hands and is nearly as good a route-runner. Jonathan Ogden or Jason Peters? I very nearly picked Peters, the rising star in Buffalo, because Ogden's starting to get nicked more often and he'll be 33 on opening night, verging on retirement. Maybe in November, I'd pick Peters, but Ogden still gets the nod.

    Unlike the all-time team, I'm playing a 4-3 here, with 11 starters on defense instead of the 12 I used on the team of history. I do that because the majority of teams have played a 4-3 in recent years. On with the 45-man team of today.
    G | Steve Hutchinson | Minnesota Vikings
    The gold standard of offensive linemen today, and I don't care if his 2006 wasn't as good as his previous seasons. He is adjusting to life with a lesser left tackle, and still steamrolling in the run game.
    CB | Antoine Winfield | Minnesota Vikings
    There is no cornerback I love watching play more today than Winfield. At 5-9 (that might be generous) and 180, he plays cornerback the way Merriman plays linebacker. Which is to say, he loves to hit.
    Pat Williams (not Kevin??) was named as a Defensive Reserve.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    And having Reggie Bush and
    Maurice Jones-Drew as his bench running backs is probably going to piss off some Chiefs and Rams fans.

    I tried to pick the 22 guys playing the best right now, not the 22 most likely bound for Canton one day.
    I think Larry Johnson and Steven Jackson are playing pretty good right now.

    Or how about Mike Furrey as his last bench WR.
    Pretty sure there are at least a dozen WRs not on that list who are better than Furrey right now.
    What a joke.


    Chuch.

    Quick!
    Name the WR who led the NFC in catches in 2006!


    How quickly people are to dismiss someone just because he's a Lion.

    True.

    I think it were one of the better lists I've seen in a while.

    That's not to say I wouldn't have made a few changes if it were my list. Like Kevin Williams. Or I's put guys like Frank Gore and Steven Jackson on my bench instead of Bush and Jones-Drew. And probably a few more here and there.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Roy Williams, Calvin Johnson and Mike Furrey.
    He'll have a hard time getting that many balls thrown his way this year.
    This guy will be a good FA grab when his time is up in Detroit.
