Here's the thing. I'm watching one of these shows on the Cooking Channel featuring food trucks. There's a Scottish expat making fish and chips; in a thick brogue he somewhat wearily explains his irritation with Americans who habitually order a side of tartar sauce: "tartar sauce is basically gherkins." That's this blog. I claim no particular insight, no revelation. If you enjoy the flavor, great, but this blog is basically gherkins.

QB - Joe's my guy and there's absolutely no one else I'd rather have behind my center; were you to take the position that Favre's regular season body of work, even taking into account the 3SB difference makes him the starter, I wouldn't object.  Adding Tarkenton's NYG to his Minnesota slips him just past Young for the third spot.  Staubach's fifth.

RB - The top 3 might wind up as the all time starting backs on the all NFL team also; if Barber comes back and can still be a feature back in the NFL, he has a chance to go by Dorsett one day.  As it is now, this group is tight; Warrick Dunn is fifth.

WR - No question about WR1; Irvin/Largent have good arguments to be on the opposite side; Monk fights with Carter for WR6, behind Huston.

OL - Gregg/Slater is a dead heat for the 2nd tackle spot; Brown/Ringo/Hauss/St Clair could all argue for that last two bench spots.

DL - Hypercompetitive - no Marshall/Strahan/Randy White/Deacon Jones/Karras/Ed Jones
