Stumbling around the interwebs checking out Superbowl leftovers I came across this list and couldn’t help myself. http://www.g4tv.com/thefeed/blog/post/710229/Super-Bowl-2011-The-Ultimate-Video-Game-Game-Football-Team.html
Before I even hit the link I knew that the very first position to check for legitimacy was OT, specifically, Left OT. Any gamer with half a football brain would put E Honda @ LOT, his hand technique/speed strength and balance (and dude has no problem keeping low and moving laterally) make him the perfect fit for the spot.
The moron that made the list put him at center, so I’m not even bothering with considering the rest of the team
so, there obviously NEEDS to be a REAL ultimate video game football team. I’ll start us off with a couple picks.
I’m obviously picking E Honda @ LOT
Good luck shoulder dipping or spinning around that mr speed end
I’m gonna double up on Street Fighter 2 by putting Blanka @ Left Guard. Why? He can pull like a mutha
and when he needs to pass block?
Gonna have to go the long way around yo
Who ya got?!
Since the participation has been so awesome, I shall continue.
@ Center, I’m changing it up a bit.
Reasoning is this. HK isn’t as physically awesome as the rest of the line, but his ability to process defensive fonts, tendencies and bluffing would be pretty rocking… and he wouldn’t have any issue telling the meatbags around him what’s up leaving the Master (QB) to focus strictly only the backs and receivers.
Now for the rest of the line, where I went with technique guys on the left, I’m going more brutish on the right side.
legendary agility and strength. Has issues with tiny pudgy plumbers.
He has issues with tiny plumbers too but most of those don’t play DE or LB… so it should be a good fit.
