Team Thug Fantasy Picks

The constant Pacman Jones talk this morning led DR and I down a path where no one should really go - making our picks for a Thug fantasy team. Here's what we came up with:

QB: Michael Vick (Falcons)
WO: Rae Carruth (Panthers)
WR: Chris Henry (Bengals)

LB: Ray Lewis (Ravens)
TE: Mark Chmura (Packers)
CB: Pacman Jones (Cowboys)

Owner: Deion Sanders (Many Teams including the Ravens and the Falcons)
Head Coach: OJ Simpson (49s)
Offensive Coordinator: Michael Irvin (Cowboys)

We realized that it was too hard to create a full team as most of the top thugs are receivers. So we just decided that we should back-fill the rest of the team from the Bengals, Falcons, Raiders, and Ravens since these teams seem to be a thug breeding ground.

It's rather disgusting that 21% of NFL players have been charged with a serious crime. I'm mean Miami Dolphins wideouts coach Robert Ford was quoted a few years back saying, "If we keep our receivers healthy and out of jail, we should be OK" for football season. This is pretty pathetic.
