Formazione ideale del 100º anniversario della National Football League

Il logo del centenario della National Football League

La formazione ideale del 100º anniversario della National Football League (in inglese National Football League 100th Anniversary All-Time Team) fu scelta da un comitato composto dai media e dal personale della lega nel 2019 per celebrare il 100º anniversario della lega.

Processo di selezioneModifica

La squadra fu scelta del un comitato di 26 votanti composto da allenatori, dirigenti, ex giocatori e membri dei media tra l'aprile e il giugno 2018. Il capo-allenatore dei New England Patriots Bill Belichick e il membro della Pro Football Hall of Fame John Madden erano tra i votanti ed erano incaricati di visionare e riportare al comitato sui giocatori dei primi anni della lega. Vi fu un voto per ridurre la lista a 160 a metà maggio 2018, dopo avere considerato i giocatori della "Golden Era" raccomandati da Belichick e Madden. Le votazioni finali si tennero il 15 giugno 2018.[1]

I giocatori furono selezionati in base al loro ruolo. Ci saranno 10 quarterback, 12 running back, 10 wide receiver, 5 tight end, 7 tackle, 7 guardie, 4 centri, 7 defensive end, 7 defensive tackle, 6 middle/inside linebacker, 6 outside linebacker, 7 cornerback, 6 safety, 2 kicker, 2 ritornatori, 2 ritornatori e 10 allenatori.[1]

Il roster sarà svelato nel corso di sei settimane su NFL Network nel programma condotto da Rich Eisen assieme a Cris Collinsworth e Belichick.
