Division rivalries don’t get more intense than those found in the NFC North; it’s not called the “Black and Blue Division” for nothing. As Lions fans we’ve certainly taken our lumps over the years and a little pay back at the expense of our divisional brethren would surely be sweet. Training camp is just around the corner but we have to keep those competitive juices back for a little longer for a collaborative project with the other NFC North FanSided blogs: Bear Goggles On, Lombardi Ave, and The Viking Age.
The task is to create a position by position All-Star team made up entirely of players from the NFC North. The four site leads will go through each position to determine the division’s best. If a decision can’t be reached between the four of us then we will open it up to a reader vote. When the roster is complete it will square off in a fan vote against one of the other NFC conference’s All-Star teams. The project will ultimately conclude with an All-Star Super Bowl to see which division can put together the best roster.
I will be sure to keep you up to date on our progress and point you to any polls that could determine a roster spot; in the meantime you can leave a message to let me know which Lions (if any) you think are deserving of a spot on the All-NFC North team.
