So, do you agree?


Here are the rules:

1. The AV systems gives a player a score for each player season. To combine these into a career number, I take 100% of the playerís best season, plus 95% of his second-best season, plus 90% of his third-best season, and so on.

2. Iím only comfortable (for now) applying the AV methodology to post-merger seasons. Players who debuted before the merger, however, are included if their post-merger seasons alone merit inclusion. In this case, they have a Ď+í after their AV score to remind you that their career AV is (probably) higher than the number shown.

3. To avoid 4-3/3-4 issues, I gave each defense 12 players, including two DT/NTs, two DEs, two OLBs, and two ILB/MLBs.

4. Because of the slippery and changing nature of defining what a fullback is, I simply decided to go with two RB/FBs, instead of an RB and an FB.

As with most things AV-related, this series of posts is mostly just for fun, but Iím also curious to hear feedback from long-time followers of the teams about things that look fishy.

I still (after re-reading the "rules") don't understand the points scheme.... But somewhere in there I think Eric Green should have been recognized as a power at TE (not taking anything away from Cunningham, but if you look at him you also have to look at Randy Grossman), as well as John Banaszak on defense...
