Which Football Position Fits Your GSD?

Based on your GSDs attributes what position would he/she earn on a football team?
Explain why your GSD would be great in that position. Pictures are encouraged!

I think Rugen would be a Tight End!

Rugen is strong, agile and fast but he is also great catch and turns into a tank when it comes to breaking through barriers. He may be on the smaller side but when his (larger) brother tries to block him while running Rugen puts his head down firms his shoulders and rams at full speed. There is no stopping him, he has no fear!

Here's my train of thought, you can follow it if you want.

Beautiful pictures.

I think Marshall would be a wide receiver. He's lanky and fast, catches pretty well, loves the spotlight, kinda whiney, and always wants 'the ball'!

Jax would definitely be the Team Mascot. She's to busy clowning around to focus on the goal line.

Re: Which Football Position Fits Your GSD?

I'll definitely have to second the wide receiver position. Lucy's skinny, lanky, always hopping around, shes got these burst of speed and loves chasing down balls. Good lucky try catching her, she's like a deer when she runs. If you need a wide receiver, i've got one for your team.

Re: Which Football Position Fits Your GSD?

I think this one fits Bianca pretty well:
Running back (RB) — The modern term for the position formerly called "halfback." The running back carries the ball on most running plays and is also frequently used as a short-yardage receiver. Running backs, along with the wide receivers, are generally the fastest players on the offensive team. Most of them tend not to run straight ahead, preferring to make quick cutbacks to try to find holes in the defense.


She never runs straight ahead when playing, see video:

Re: Which Football Position Fits Your GSD?

Chimo would have to be a head coach (Joe Gibbs)- Always observant and one step ahead of the Paq to keep everything in line and everyone prepared.

Tika would be a running back- small, deceivingly strong, agile and lightening fast to blow through the tiniest hole the offensive line (Barry Sanders/Walter Payton)

Rayne- she has the energy, speed, drive, moves and bRaynes to play both ways; Wide receiver (Art Monk)/Cornerback (Darrell Green) She WILL get the ball and the job done but might never be seen in the spotlight!

Gone but forever part of the team:

Phoenix- smart, always prepared, and lightening fast decision making, not afraid to run it if he had too with the muscle/precision to air it out- Quarterback (John Elway)

KC- like her sister the strength, skill, determination to play both sides slightly stronger in the defense Linebacker (Lawrence Taylor) to stuff the run and drop into coverage and Tight End (Shannon Sharpe) on offense to make the tough yards by receiving or the "blocking boost" needed for any good running back to break it on the outside.

Otto says if no one else wants to QB, he'll do it. Strange dog can actually throw the ball. Lives for the ball.
