I pick A with Alex Smith at QB. That kind of elite running game most compliments my defense

I'd go with D. In their prime 4 of those 5 players were pretty beastly.

I take Schaub and I go with team B. Gives him plenty of receiving threats, familiarity with Johnson, and Jones in his prime was a capable back.

This would be my answer.

I was tempted to go with A and Alex Smith, but it's hard to justify taking an elite FB over other more important positions. Especially in today's NFL. I'd take that team 10-15 years ago. But not today.

Why? The importance of any position is up to you since you get to pick the coach

To his point traditional "run blocking FB" is a position that is pretty much been phased out in the modern game. Not many teams these days having a ton of championship success with offensive power run schemes.

You can pick a coach from any era to fit the group you pick.

Yes I read the OP. But I can't pick my era... so I'm assuming we are attempting to win this Championship in the current modern football era correct? Given the way the current rules are slanted I'm taking my chances with an elite passing attack not a power run game.

OK got it. Because the FB being phased out or not important doesn't make sense when you determine who the coach is and in turn how much any position is used.

I'd take D with Alex Smith pretty easily.

An argument could be made that this would actually be beneficial in today's game. Yes, the rules now make passing easier than ever before, and as a result passing is a more efficient way to pick up yards on offense.

But because of this, defenses across the league are getting smaller and faster and more roster space is being given to defensive backs and versatile hybrid players.

If a team could put together a really dominant running attack behind a mauling offensive line and HOF-caliber blocking fullback, it may be able to be particularly effective against defenses geared more to playing base nickel packages and dime sub-packages.
