All Century Teams


                                                

 

 These are various all time teams I have found.  At the end of last century many of these polls/lists were done.   If anyone has any others please contact me.  Any team chosen on an online fan poll will  probably be dominated by players from recent years.  Its hard to compare players from different eras especially when you might not of even seen some them play or maybe even heard of them.   Some sources have more than 11 players per offense or defense lineup.

Its interesting to note that Tom Novak made teams mainly at linebacker but also at center in the 1969 Fan Poll
