I issued this challenge back in May of last year to get us through the long summer months, now I would like to re-issue the challenge.
From May 2010 - I would like to issue a challenge to Dave, Raf, Aaron, Raul & O.C.C. We all love the site and know this is THE BEST place to get Cowboysnews. But it's time to dig deep into all of your vault of Cowboys knowledge. I would like to propose a draft of of Cowboys players. Hold a 25 round draft where only Cowboys players (past and present) can be drafted. You must fill an entire roster - 11 on D, 11 on O and don't forget specialists! Anybody who wore a Cowboy star on their helmet is eligible. After the draft prepare a write-up defending your picks, e.g. what scheme you're running, how you would use your players, and let BTB members vote on who did the best job!!
How about it guys, you in?The rules would be simple. Decide who gets first pick and then perform 25 round draft, you can use the snake format.
All players who wore the star are eligible, however, only their time as a Cowboy can be considered. For instance, if you draft Drew Bledsoe, you get his Cowboy career and not his entire career (e.g. Patriots).
Fill out an entire roster: 11 on D, 11 on O, K, P, ST specialist (Bates, Gant, Keith Davis type player).
You're the Head Coach, GM, Owner. You get to decide what type of Defense you will run (3-4, 4-3 etc) what type of offense you will be (power run, balanced, pass heavy). This will make if fair since you could decide to draft a 3rd WR and not a FB ect.
When it's done, make a case as to why your team is best and let the fans of BTB vote to see who the best TEAM is.
Just a fun way to pass the time. Let me know what you think!
