Per request of 43: 43 is awesome! 43 is awesome! 43 is awesome! 43 is awesome!


Team: Nameless
GM: at23steelers
assistant GM: KJtheWicked

Choosing Mike Zimmer as Head coach will pay huge dividends. He has experience with running a base nickel from his days as an assistant in Dallas under Barry Switzer, which will come in handy in our hybrid 3-4/30 stack defense. More on that later. Zimmer was named the NFL's Assistant Coach of the year in 2009, guiding the lowly Bengals to the leagues 4th ranked defense and a playoff berth. In 2011, his defense ranked 7th in yards allowed & 9th in points allowed, as well as another Bengals playoff berth.

On Offense, coordinator Kirby Wilson looks to have the leagues easiest job...running an offense led by arguably the smartest QB to ever play, Peyton Manning. No matter what people say about Manning's health, he still has all the intangibles you need in a QB and reports are saying he is back to the form he was a few years ago. Shadowing him will be the leagues next superstar QB Andrew Luck. This should've taken place in Indy, but it will finally happen here in SFFMD. Luck has all the tools you need to be an elite QB. Learning behind the hardest working QB will give Luck an invaluable wealth of knowledge. Manning will have plenty of options in the passing game: from a possession, sure handed WR Jordy Nelson to the speedster Jeremy Maclin. Also joining Mannings core of WR's are Pierre Garcon and Austin Collie who already have a chemistry with him. Key contributors in the red-zone will be wide receiver Laurent Robinson and TE's Jermaine Gresham and Marcedes Lewis. Do-it-all RB Matt Forte and utility speedster Dexter McCluster add great options out of the backfield. But the bread and butter here is going to be the running game. Matt Forte and Frank Gore compliment each other as well as any tandem. They will be running behind what is sure to be nothing less than a dominant offensive line. LT Ryan Clady, LG Brandon Albert, C Maurkice Pouncey, RG Marshal Yanda, and RT Michael Oher comprise a line that is all entering their primes (young to mid twenties) and can both run and pass block extremely well. Brandon Albert and backups Jared Gaither and Marcus Gilbert can play either guard or tackle which will provide tremendous versatility along the line.

On defense, we couldn't have LeBeau, so we got someone just as good to coordinate our defense in Dom Capers. Scheme diversity is the name of the game here with many interchangable parts to run just about any scheme imaginable. The base D will be a 3-4, and that all starts with the front seven. Kyle Williams will anchor the middle and will require a double team every time the ball is snapped. At LE, Ray McDonald is arguably the leagues top run stuffing 5-tech DE. Think Aaron Smith in his prime. Glenn Dorsey will provide another big body at RE, and will also require extra attention. Cameron Heyward will rotate in to keep our DEs fresh and has the ability to rush the passer. OLB Pass rush extraordinaire DeMarcus Ware will be locked into your QB's blindside all game long! Regularly meeting Ware at your QB will be LaMarr Woodley, who will start at OLB on the strong side. I feel bad for offensive line schemes trying to block both players. Paul Pozluzny and Sean Lee will play inside, with Poz calling the plays and Lee running the Mack. The secondary is what sets this team apart from the pack. SS Eric Berry is arguably the best young safety in the league. Complimenting him brilliantly is FS Michael Griffin, who is one of the top cover safeties in the league. Carlos Rogers, Ike Taylor, and Dunta Robinson can all take on the #1 WR of any team, so having 3 of them sets us apart. This is where it gets interesting...

We have the capability and versatility to not only run a base 3-4 but also a hybrid 30 stack. For those unfamilliar with the formation, it is a variation of the nickel 3-3-5(which we will also run at times). The difference being instead of a 3rd CB on the field, it will be a 3rd Safety playing the “Spur Backer” role(we know that role better as the “joker” that Polamalu plays). Donte Whitner will fill that role nicely, but the best part is, Eric Berry can play that role as well, so our Spur will be disguised on every down! Not only will this formation cause massive amounts of confusion for the opposing QB and not only will the run game still be covered with Berry and Whitner both having the ability to play inside the box, but this formation is the perfect remedy for those of you pesky copycats who are going to try throwing a New England style Two-TE set our way!

So, what can you do against this defense? Want to stretch the field with your WR's? Good luck. Taylor and Rogers can lock down your top 2 targets, while Ware will be WAREing your QB for a hat 1.5 seconds after the ball is snapped! Want to run screens to your speedy guys? The playmaking ability of our whole defense will eat that up in the backfield. Wanna run the ball? While your entire line is blocking our 3-man front, our LB's will stuff you. Quick, short passes? Depends on how many pick sixes you're willing to throw since you have no idea where the Spur will be!

This is a team so well put together and compliment each other so well that we don 't even need a name! We just used Irish's name so we wouldn't look like outcasts!

Options on offense, consistency on defense. That's the Blitzburgh Stilerz, led by head coach Mike Smith, who helped turn the Atlanta Falcons around after the franchise was reeling from the incompetency of Bobby Petrino and the jailing of Michael Vick.

The offense has limitless options, and is led by offensive coordinator Todd Haley who, in the last 4 seasons, has engineered offenses which were tops in passing AND rushing offense. Using a 3-WR set that is one of only 4 teams in NFL history to produce 3 WRs with 1000 yards in the same season, he led an Arizona team to a top 2 passing offense and a Super Bowl birth. Taking over in Kansas City, he led the Chiefs to the the playoffs and the NFL's top rushing offense, using a "thunder and lightning" platoon system using a power RB complemented by a quick, elusive pass-catching RB with long speed.

That is replicated for him on the Blitzburgh Stilerz. Marshawn Lynch provides the thunder, LeSean McCoy provides the lightning. Haley gets a 3-WR set that includes record-setters Randy Moss, Larry Fitzgerald, and SB MVP Santonio Holmes. He is reunited with Larry Fitzgerald who had a career year and broke Jerry Rice's postseason production records under Haley. With Randy moss opposite Larry Fitzgerald to provide the deep threat, and Santonio Holmes in the slot, defenses can't cheat up to stop the thunder/lightning, or Moss will burn them deep. They can't possibly double cover Fitzgerald AND Moss, or that leaves Santonio Holmes against a linebacker. Teams can't commit to play the pass only, because TD leader LeSean McCoy will kill teams coming out of the backfield.

And if a team figures out how to stop all of the above, they still have to contend with the 2-TE sets that include Jason Witten and Jimmy Graham. Patrick Willis learned the hard way that LBs simply can't cover Jimmy Graham.

QB Eli Manning has proven to be a clutch performer who continues to improve, and he can take a beating and still perform. The offensive line has a combo of youth and experience, as well as versatility. Unger and Wisniewski are both excellent starting Centers. Bulaga, Okung, and Carimi have all played both RT and LT. Dahl has the nastiness and experience to help lead the OL. Excellence at every level, in every position, as well as strong backups. The offense simply has too many weapons for any defense to stop.

The only way to even slow an offense like this down is to hit the QB constantly, except that exposes the defense to sprint draws and quick screens with McCoy out of the backfield, and even so, Eli doesn't care how often you hit him.

Find a way to cover Fitzgerald, Moss, Santonio Holmes, Jimmy Graham, Jason Witten, Marshawn Lynch, and LeSean McCoy, in various combinations. I don't think it can be done.

On defense, SB champion defensive coordinator Perry Fewell has a combination of young studs and beastly veterans that mesh perfectly with his big-play/big-pressure 4-3 under schemes. Justin Tuck was forgotten about early in 2011 due to injury, until posting sacks in 4 of the last 6 games of the season, including 1.5 sacks in the NFC Championship game and 2 more in the Super Bowl, the 2nd consecutive SB he's posted multiple sacks. Chris Long is a natural DE with a nonstop motor who has demonstrated consistent improvement in the sea of incompetence that is the St Louis Rams' defensive line, posting 13 of the Rams' 29 DL sacks. JJ Watt provides the nastiness, length, and ridiculously explosive 3-technique, filling a role he excelled at in college, and Marcel Dareus provides the anchor and pass rush as a 1-tech after generating a somewhat surprising half-dozen sack rookie season, as he moved all around the Buffalo Bills' defensive line due to teammates' injuries.

Backups Muhammad Wilkerson, Adrian Clayborne, and Justin Houston showed excellent pass rush skills as rookies, and Nick Perry as a situational pass rusher will provide an impressive rotation of explosiveness, fitting perfectly with Fewell's system of rotating pass rushers to generate sacks and turnovers.

The LB corps consists of MLB James Laurinaitis, one of the best coverage MLBs in the NFL who rarely misses a tackle. Daryl Smith and Kam Wimbley provide coverage, run stopping, and pass rush as the WLB and SLB positions, and upcoming Erin Henderson provides a versatile backup after he hit his stride last season.

In the 3-4 looks, JJ Watt is quickly establishing himself as the best 3-4 DE in the NFL. Chris Long plays much like Justin Smith. Similar size and length, similar explosion. Long played a good bit of 3-4 DE in college, and he rotates with Adrian Clayborne and Muhammad Wilkerson based on opponent, down, and distance. Marcel Dareus plays the 1-T NT position that he plays frequently at Buffalo, allowing him to use his size and quickness to dominate the interior.

James Laurinaitis maintains his position as the primary signal-caller of the defense in the 3-4, playing the Buck ILB. As effective as he is behind the Rams' DL (with no DT), behnd this defensive line he will excel. Daryl Smith is the primary mack ILB alongside Laurinaitis, and the pass rushing OLB positions are well-handled with Justin Houston (11.5 sacks, 37 solos in his last 11 games, pace = 54 solos, 17 sacks in 16 games) on one side, and Nick Perry and Kamerion Wimbley on the other side, rotating to keep fresh.

Antoine Bethea and Quintin Mikell are experienced in coverage and solid tackling safeties, and Brandon Carr has shown his mettle and is considered a top 10 CB by many. Morris Claiborne is one of the best CB prospects in years, and the secondary backups include Prince Amukamara, Jimmy Smith and Stanford Routt, who should continue to develop and provide excellent depth and playmaking. Thus far, the Dallas defense leads the NFL in least passing yards allowed with only DeMarcus Ware generating pressure. That bodes well for Claiborne and Carr lining up behind the beastly front 7 the Stilerz put on the field each week.

Even the special teams are dominant, with NFL record holder David Akers (7 of 9 from beyond the 50), Britton Colquitt (2nd in NFL in punts dropped inside the 20), and returners Jacoby Ford (4 KR TDs in 2 seasons) and Ted Ginn (5 PR/KR TDs in last 3 seasons)

With Colquitt pinning teams inside their own 20s on the rare occasion the opposing team manages to keep the offense out of hte end zone AND out of Akers' outstanding range, opponents simply will not be able to score anywhere near enough points against the pass rush to possibly keep up with Haley's big play offense, who will start drives with excellent field position generated from top notch returners in Ted Ginn and Jacoby Ford.

Too many matchup problems, not enough solutions. Say hello to the Blitzburgh Stilerz, your soon-to-be defending champions.

It all starts with coaching and with 3 Super Bowl winning coaches the Wardens have a very strong foundation. They have the offensive genius of Sean Peyton. Peyton will be able to create havoc for opposing defenses with the high powered offense the Wardens have. Ken Whizenhunt will be able to creatively utilize all the weapons this roster has to offer. He can run up the score with an aerial attack using the phenomenal WR stable and then grind down the clock like the old days with a strong OL , a true blocking FB, and two big bruising power backs at his disposal. Then as our DC we have the man who toppled the great Tom Brady and the undefeated Patriots of 2007 in the Super Bowl. In today's passing league he is the ideal DC. He knows how to get after the QB and with all the talent at DE and DT he can get the rotation of fresh rushers that he likes to have with no drop off.

We all know that this is a passing league and without an elite QB you don't have a shot at a Super Bowl. With only a small handful out there we were lucky enough to land Big Ben to lead our team. With the supporting cast around him Ben can take his game to the next level and really bring home the SBs.

It all starts up front with a well rounded OL that can protect the passer and road grade. Gross, Iupati, Birk, Joseph, and Winston can give Ben all the time he needs and open holes against any front 7.

At WR we have one of 3 elite WRs in the game Andre Johnson. At the #2 spot we have the best slot WR in the game with W. Welker. Miles Austin who could be a #1 on any team takes our #3 spot. To wind out the WR core we have the big Red Zone threat of Sydney Rice.

We have thunder and lighting at RB. Turner and Hillis can pound the rock and run down the clock. We have J. Best as lighting. He can take it to the house on any play either through the air or on the ground.

The front 7 starts with Peppers and Babin on the ends to rush the passer. In
Spagnuolo's. def they can pin their ears back and get after it. K.Williams and A. Rubin anchor the middle. There are plenty of other rotational rushers to keep everyone fresh. We have strong group of tough athletic LBs.

On the back end we have Champ Baily who even at the back end of his career was a top CB. Finnegan is another shut down corner who isn't afraid to mix it up. We have Hall and Talib for nickel and passing downs. They are big and strong and can hang with the athletic TEs in the league. Adrian Wilson is one of the best in the box safeties in the game and Rhodes can play center fielder.

This team isn't lacking in special teams either. Washington was a top 3 returnable last season. Lecher will pin any offense back and the veteran Gould will keep the points coming.

Coaches: We decided it best to pair Rodgers with the Offensive Coordinator that contributed to his success, Joe Philbin. The one issue with Philbin is that he doesn’t call the plays, so we needed a head coach that had experience in calling a WCO, which lead us to selecting Shanahan. We chose Mike Nolan as our DC as he’s had success in a multitude of defensive schemes with multiple variations on multiple teams.

Offense: With the #1 overall pick of Rodgers as our QB, we chose to stay true to the system in which he’s been so successful, so we decided to employ a WCO. We provided him weapons at every level of the Offense that either have had great success in a WCO, or have the attributes necessary to be successful in a WCO. Our RBs were chosen for their agility, soft hands, and demonstrated production in the short passing game. Gronk may be the best TE in the league, and teamed up with an incredibly successful WCO TE in Celek, provides us a very solid TE corps. WRs, like RBs in a WCO, must also have soft hands. Dez and Floyd are big bodies that also provide a deep threat with outstanding hands that that ranked 2nd and 3rd, respectively in 2011, in dropped pass rate (Lance Moore and Floyd ranked #4 and 5 over the last 3 years overall). Harvin is a weapon with a multitude of talents and Moore provides experience and documented success in a WCO.

Defense: While we have the personnel to run either a 4-3 or 3-4, we will run a base 4-3 D, with the option to run our “Great Wall” sub-package, which consists of four 6’-6” and taller DTs/DEs in Canty and Campbell in the middle, and Dunlap and Kiwi on the outside.

We have an incredibly skilled and deep DB Corps. We have two highly rated CBs in Peanut and Cox, have Verner and J. Jenkins to cover the shifty slot WRs, and a versatile CB in Haden who can play outside or inside depending upon the WR corps of our opponent. Additionally, with the ever growing success of the two TE sets, we needed that “Big Nickel” DB which we have in Pollard to inject alongside Branch and Phillips, who both had standout years in 2011.

ST: We have great depth in our return game as well. C.J. Spiller and Percy Harvin will be our two primary Kick Returners, who have 5 TDs between them in the last 3 years, with Pierre Thomas, Janoris Jenkins, and Dez Bryant able to fill in in reserve when needed. C. J. Spiller will also return punts, with Dez Bryant as our reserve, if needed, who returned two for TDs in his rookie season. Alex Henery had the 5th highest percentage this past season and Brandon Fields has one of the most powerful legs in the NFL (48.8 yd avg) and downed an incredible 32 kicks inside the 20 in 2011. BTW, we also have a long snapper…anyone else have one? Just sayin’… (Yes!! Winner, winner, chicken dinner!!!)

We ask that you take a few things into consideration when evaluating our team. We have a very deep roster at all positions (other than maybe NT). We took only players that as of right now, are expected to be able to start week 1. We also have a great mixture of potential, production, and veteran leadership at all positions on defense and offense. What we lack in big names, we made up for by taking great care in ensuring that each of our players talents and abilities fit the systems we employ. Thank you all very much for your consideration of these items as you evaluate our team!!

Okay...I hate to do it, but Im pushing this back again.

Honestly, I got burnt out and busy towards the end of this thing, and now Im just trying to enjoy my summer. I am working 10 hour days most weekdays and school starts back up in about 5 weeks. it also seems like there is a lack of presence on this board right now. By the end of July, beginning of August, more Steeler fans will start posting here due to training camp and preseason, and we will have more voters for this thing, so IMO, its not a rush and probably better if we wait a bit.

So at this point, Im thinking second week of August.

I apologize to those who want to do this fast, but I just dont think we need to rush it, and I want to let people, including myself, enjoy their summer.

If you have any issues with this, let me know.

I COMPLETELY forgot about this.

Ive been working alot and have school starting back up along with other things, so it just slipped my mind.

If anyone else has yet to submit their depth chart, do it soon. (Including me)

Please get it in by SATURDAY, and Sunday evening I will post the ranking thread so people can vote.

THIS DOES NOT ESTABLISH THE "CHAMPION" JUST THE SEEDING. FINAL VOTING TAKES PLACE IMMEDIATE FOLLOWING THE REGULAR SEASON.
