My All Time Can Pound Your All Time

So CNNSI right now is having Peter King write his All-Time, All-Current, and All-Future NFL teams. You can gander at his list at, though it is the usual Peter King stuff. Being inspired by that, and by yesterday's Preseason All American list that I put, I submit to you, my very own team.
I begin today with my All-Time team.

QB-Otto Graham.-What can you say to a man who was seven out of ten? The man was champion and the symbol of excellence long before Bret Hart was ever around.
RB-Walter Payton-The smoothest runner I have ever seen, he flowed like water and worked like a maniac
FB-Jim Brown-Yes, the Hall of Fame lists Jim Brown as a FB hence why I get Payton AND Brown
WR-Jerry Rice-Needs no explanation
WR-Fred Biletnikoff-I have always loved his style of play, that's why he gets the starting nod.
TE-Ozzie Newsome-All this reminiscing about Mackey, but this man and his back up revolutionized the position
OT-Anthony Munoz-Probably the best offensive lineman I have ever seen play the game
OT-Jackie Slater-Longevity, constant and consistent work, he won't make the mistake to cost the team, and he will always be there
OG-Bruce Matthews-Much like Slater, and he can play almost every position. Give him enough time, he could play QB if need be
OG-Gene Hickerson-Finally got his place in the HoF this year, the man was the one who opened holes for Jim Brown
C-Mike Webster-The anchor in the Steelers dynasty's offense

Joe Montana, Barry Sanders, Paul Warfield, Don Maynard, Kellen Winslow, Ron Yary, Joe DeLamielleure, John Hannah

DE-Howie Long-I'm sure some can argue for Reggie White, but Howie fits this demeanor so much better then Reggie
DT-Mean Joe Green-His nickname epitomizes this defense
DE-Deacon Jones-The greatest Defensive End of all time, no I won't hear your arguments Phily or Green Bay, this man dominated like no other
LB-Lawerence Taylor-I worry about putting Taylor here, I don't know if there is drug testing for this team
LB-Dick Butkus-The man should have been arrested for assault for what he did at the line backer position
LB-Mike Singletary-Butkus' illegitimate son spliced with a nuclear physicist, a intellectual's football player.
LB-Jack Lambert-Vampire's presence alone used to frighten opposing teams, not the biggest, but maybe the hardest working
CB-Deion Sanders-I think my corners are the only ones on this defense not known for hitting. So if the QB does somehow manage to throw the ball I need great cover
CB-Dick Night Train Lane-14 interceptions, 12 games, rookie year, and it only got better after that
S-Ronnie Lott-My personal favorite player of all time, and I can't be accused of bias with this selection either
S-Jack Tatum-The Assassin probably would be arrested today for assault, but would anyone throw over the middle? I think not

Bench-Reggie White, Randy White, Carl Eller, Ray Nitschke, Willie Lanier, Ray Lewis, Rod Woodson, Steve Atwater

Head Coach-Paul Brown
Offensive Coordinator-Bill Walsh
Defensive Coordinator-Buddy Ryan

So folks, thoughts?
