Open Debate: Select Your NFC North Big Three

| July 20th, 2012

I started a conversation on the Twitter a day or so back and it became a rather intriguing sports debate. Now I send it to you, my loyal readers, and I expect you will not be horribly swayed by your penchant for loving a certain ballclub that plays its football between a highway and a large lake.

Rank the QB-RB-WR trio, #1s only, of Chicago, Detroit & Green Bay. It is a fascinating debate once broken down. The Packers have a substantial advantage at QB but Stafford v Cutler is a legitimate debate with Cutler coming out slightly ahead. The Lions have the biggest advantage in sports at WR but Jennings and Marshall is a legitimate debate and – I believe – Marshall comes out slightly ahead.

That leaves running back and Matt Forte has a significant advantage over James Starks and whomever the Lions tread out there.

Here is how I do the rankings:

Aaron Rodgers – 95
Jay Cutler – 88
Matthew Stafford – 82

Calvin Johnson – 100
Brandon Marshall – 90
Greg Jennings – 89

Matt Forte – 92
James Starks – 82
Lions Backs – 70

Total Points:
270 Chicago
266 Green Bay
252 Detroit

So we are cutting off the first round of sales on July 31st. We’ll then process all orders the first week of August and get the product out to everyone. (I would imagine around the 15th) If you want a tee shirt or koozie guaranteed to you by the start of the regular season you need to get your order in by July 31.

The shirts are pictured above. To see the koozie, CLICK HERE.
