As part of the club's 50th anniversary in 2003, fans got to select the all-time Dream Team. The only current Lion named to the squad was Eric Carter.
Since then, the Lions have enjoyed their best run in franchise history winning four straight Western Division titles and advancing to the Grey Cup twice including the win in ’06.
How many players from this era would now be on that team?
My changes would be:
In: Brent Johnson (DE) Out: Nick Hebeler
In: Tyrone Williams (DT) Out: Rick Klassen
In: Geroy Simon (SB) Out: Darren Flutie
In: Jason Clermont (TE) Out: Harry Holt
In Wally Buono (coach) Out: Don Matthews
Toughest change was Williams for Klassen but big #96 has been a monster on the d-line for seven years.
I love Hebeler but Johnson is the most decorated Lions defensive player in team history with three major awards.
Although he is technically not a TE, Clermont has to be on that team instead of Holt. Two most outstanding Canadian awards, as well as top rookie in 2002, back him up. Besides, Jason plays like a TE. 8)
