For Part 3 of my NFL “Independence Day” team, i’ll be revealing the last three parts of the team: the guys on Special Teams, the coaching staff, and the guys who just missed the cut from this hypothetical 53 man roster.
Welcome back to the second installment of my three-part NFL “Independence Day” team. Today, we’ll be introducing the offense who’ll be charged with putting points on the board against our (hypothetical) Earth-invading alien overlords.
Ponder this question for a moment: What if space aliens invaded planet Earth (with intentions of conquest, of course), and somehow, instead of a battle between our respective military, the fate of our world would be determined by some intergalactic, winner-take-all football game? What would the football team representing planet Earth look like?
