The Hunger Games brought us many great things when it was released in 2012.
It reminded us Woody Harrelson should never be anyone's mentor. A refresher course on Shirley Jackson's The Lottery, and Ice-T's/Gary Busey's Surviving the Game. And of course, Jennifer Lawrence.
But the tale of 12- to 18-year-olds fighting it out to the death in a Truman Show-gone-sadistic battlefield begs a question of the utmost importance.
Replace 12- to 18-year-olds with NFL head coaches and who wins?
Mind you, this is not simply a battle of brawn.
This requires varying degrees of savvy, moxie, chutzpah, cunning, diplomacy, uncontrollable crying in the middle of the friggin' woods during this carnage carnival and yes, a dash of brawn.
So who does one take in such a contest?
We thank our cohorts in The Jungle for dropping such a question into the thunderdome of Twitter.
If all 32 NFL head coaches were thrown into the Hunger Games arena, who's coming out? The Harbaugh Bros would be tough kills— Kyle Brandt (@KyleBrandt) November 20, 2013
While the Harbaughs are a solid go-to, there's no question that John would immediately take out Jim (just like daddy would've done).
Our Chad Johnson takes Andy Reid. I'm assuming he meant 13-year-old Andy Reid.
Pete Prisco likes Ron Rivera, he of the riverboat variety.

Brinson, meanwhile, takes Jim Harbaugh. Sucker. John's got that on lock.
In no particular order, here are some of the guys we bandied about during our meeting Thursday night.
-- Jim Schwartz
-- Bill Belichick
-- Greg Schiano
-- Mike Tomlin
-- Tom Coughlin (old-man strength points)
I think one thing's clear, no coach from the NFC East is coming out of this on top.
As for my selection?

Other 31 coaches? Dead before they knew what hit them.
Your turn. Bang on the comments below with which coach would come out on top, or be first gone.
