And they always have names like Ian, Colin or Chase.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

For the excitement I'd play KR/PR or even RB but if I had to pick right now, knowing what I know, I'd go with Kicker. No pain, career longevity, greater "hero of the game" potential, decent paycheck and if you're good enough you're not out of a job for long.

Dude, you are spot on. Chase and Graham ... the two QBs I played with through the years ... both were collar poppers, and total prima donnas.

I played football in Texas too, so the competition was very tough. I played DB and WR, but I was only average. DB was probably the best, because it was very challenging. However, if I could choose, I would choose safety. You get to hit and cover. Such a nice balance -- not much glory though.

HA! Awesome, Graham is without a doubt a douchebag QB name. Not that anything is wrong with any of the aforementioned names (except Colin, I've never met a Colin I liked) unless you happen to be a QB.

And yes, they ALL were collar poppers. For some reason you never have a "Good Ol' Boy" QB.

I went to high school with a guy named Graham Manley, and he was a man-beast. 2x state champion wrestler (he was a heavy weight who only weighed about 220 even though he mainly wrestled guys who were closer to 280), and he was an all-met football player in HS. I think he was eventually a captain for syracus' football team.
I guess he was the Graham expection.

If his last name wasn't Manley, he probably wouldn't be an exception.

I playd ST's kickoffs and punts when I was a freshman and thats the absolute worst I ever hit anybody.... and it was every time... huge collisions running full force and just slaughtering someone... hell yeah I miss that.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

I was a QB, so I'm rolling with AMD on this one, and I'm going to say H-Back.

Re: If You Could Play Any Position......

Two thoughts for me on this one:

WR - just cause it's fun to catch the ball. And it's a very one-on-one type of position, you against the CB.

Fullback - I'd love to be Mike Sellers and just beat the ever living crap out of guys every single play. Wear them down until it's the fourth quarter and you can see it in their eyes that they want no part of dealing with yet another running play.

What weight did you wrestle? On the subject of Manely's...I was born on the same day as Dexter's son. He and my dad met in the waiting room. He told my dad "I hope your wife feels better" hahahah

I was 145 my senior year. I can't believe that's all I weighed.
