You Do the Math



Pretend today is Saturday, September 5, 2009.   You are the head coach of the Minnesota Vikings.   You're trimming down your roster to those 53 men who will make the final cut, and you know your job is on the line, no matter how nicely your boss smiles on TV.  (That was his smile, right?)

So far, you have filled all of these slots shown in the list as follows (Sorry, this is just a game--maybe you'd never do this, but please just humor me):

  • 3 special teams players
  • 5 cornerbacks
  • 4 defensive ends
  • 7 linebackers
  • 4 safeties
  • 5 defensive tackles
  • 2 centers
  • 4 fullback/tight ends
  • 2 guards
  • 2 tackles
  • 1 offensive lineman who can play tackle or guard  (just pretend it is Artis Hicks)
  • 3 running backs (imagine one of them is Albert Young)
  • 4 quarterbacks (the plot thickens and is intended to make things interesting)
  • 6 wide receivers/returners

That's three special team guys, 25 defenders, and 24 offensive players, which means you've got one roster spot left to fill.  You look down at your big, multi-purpose coaching clip board and signal-calling security shield and have to make your final management decision. 

Below is a list of players you are considering, and you know that all of but one of them will be cut.   Whom do you keep?
