If you want to win a Super Bowl, just stack your team full of guys from ‘The U” and you should be okay. That’s Andre Johnson’s thought process on getting your NFL franchise to the big game.
Johnson appeared on the Marc Hochman Show with Zach Krantz Monday and delved into the topic. The hosts pointed out how the Colts have quite a few former Miami players on the roster, including Johnson, Frank Gore, Phillip Dorsett, and Erik Swoope.
He was then asked if a roster made up of only Miami Hurricanes could win a Super Bowl. What did you expect Johnson to say?
“Yeah I really think you can,” Johnson said. “If you put a team together and all of the guys are in their prime, yes, I think you could get it done.”
He was then asked, even if the players weren’t in their prime. What if the team was made up of players currently playing, or recently removed like Willis McGahee, Ray Lewis or Ed Reed. Would it be possible to field a team that could win a championship then?
“I think you could put something together that could get you there,” Johnson said. “There’s so many guys. It’s a lot of young guys, also. So, I think you can put a team together that could probably get it done.”
I can’t see it, especially if the guys he’s referring to still have to be active NFL players. Ray Lewis, CLinton Portis and Ed Reed aren’t walking through that door to help you.
There’s no former Miami quarterbacks available on any NFL roster to throw to the likes of Johnson or Jimmy Graham.
