The "Stand by your man" competition: Pats Defense. How about it?

Got an idea to pass the time here folks, and with luck/interest we could run it through the season.  Let me know what you think:

Tammy sang it well, and now I think it'd be good for us all to do as she's asked.   Specifically in relation to the Pats D. What I propose is this:

- There are 11 positions on D, the first 11 people to commit here will randomly be assigned a position to review and create a "Standing by ___" post for.   The post would announce who will be starting in this position and why they stand behind him as the starter.

- Along with stats and analysis of the competition I think it'd work best if "standing by" posts also included some humor, ridiculous stats, other-worldly skills, or obscure references which support the players cause - but that's just me.

- If this goes over well and we enjoy it, I'd propose we extend this through the 2010 season, with each person commiting to a "standing by their man" post after each game.  That might be too much, I don' t know.

- Additionally, once the initial 11 starters are posted we can open it up for additional people to choose a different player at the same position they will stand by.   This would create a fun little point counter point during the off season/season.

Would run this using a standard 3-4 alignment, naturally.

- I'm thinking about this in a way similar to how the mock NFL draft was created on the ol'pulpit.

Any interest?  Any thoughts to make it better?

 

Anyone else got this song stuck in their head now?
