Michael Silver gets a lot of points for the idea but not for the execution. He imagines a draft in which every team has the right to choose any active NFL player. His first pick, ridiculously, is Michael Vick. He also has Marvin Harrison going in the first round, ignoring Harrison's age even though he explicitly mentioned the importance of age earlier in the piece. Still, this should be a lively conversation starter.
Possibly the closest Super Bowl matchup in history also poses the question: how much does it mean when certain aspects of an NFL team improve dramatically in the second half of the season?
