Off-Day Open Thread: Football and the Orlando Magic

For football fans, today is a special day because it marks the beginning of the 2009-2010 NFL regular season. What does this have to do with the Orlando Magic? Well, I wanted to have fun since the NBA off-season is still in full swing.


When Matt Barnes had his press conference with the media a little over a month ago, I was able to ask him during the Q/A session about his football experiences. For those that don't know, Barnes was thisclose to trying out for the NFL before his inaugural season with the Golden State Warriors at the beginning of the 'We Believe' era. His position was wide receiver, and he was a damn good one at Del Campo High School (an All-American, led the nation with 28 touchdown catches). 


So, with a former football player on the team, and the NFL kicking off a new year tonight, I figured it'd be fun to ask the community to figure out what football positions would best suit the Magic players on the roster? Jameer Nelson at running back doesn't seem so farfetched, 'eh?
