Chris Cooley’s Blog: NFL in the Olympics?

Just think how interesting it would be to see the following NFL athletes compete in the 2012 Summer Olympic Games:

Jason Taylor: Fencing. Did you see his footwork during Dancing with the Stars? Plus, just think about the wing span advantage he would have over his opponents.

Steve Smith: Boxing. Anthony Bright and Ken Lucas can attest to his boxing skills.

The Manning Brothers: Handball. Come on. You score by throwing a ball just smaller than a football through a goal.

Deangleo Hall: Track & Field. He runs a 4.15 40 yard dash.

Larry Allen: Weightlifting. Just watch him bench press 700 lbs.

Chris Cooley: Greco Roman Wrestling. He was an All-American wrestler in high school and the US undoubtedly needs a new face for wrestling to replace Rulon Gardner. Who better?
