With the first week of the 2018 season under the Washington Nationals belt, the team sits 4-5 after being swept at home by the hated New York Mets. Despite starting the season 4-0, Washington has scuffled and fallen below .500 for the first time since August 2015.
To put things in the parlance that both the foodies and the sports junkies can appreciate: looking back on things, the 2016-2017 NBA season was the basketball equivalent of dining at a fancy steakhouse.
In those rare instances where a sequel somehow manages to equal, or even surpass the original classic, everyone knows what happens next: everyone wants part three. If the first taste was good, and the second taste was better, imagine what the third taste will be like.
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?
