How many corners in a football game?

It depends on the team. A team is given a certain number of roster spots, and is at liberty to have quite a few Corner Backs listed on the roster. Some use 3, some use 7. Also bear in mind that just because someone is listed as a Wide receiver or some other position, that doesn't mean they cannot be put in for a play to play another position. We often see this in the NFL. Recently the "wildcat formation" had the quarterback lining up at the wide receiver position - and for that play the quarterback was a wide receiver. Essentially a team can have as few or as many corner backs as they would like, within the limits of the entire team roster.
