  • All Decade Team(2000's)

    Ok, so this is one year pre-mature, but the decade is 9/10ths over, so we have a pretty good idea of what the team should look like. Here is a link that shows the format of the team, and how many players are chosen. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nationa...ll-Decade_Team


    Here is the first draft of my 1st and 2nd teams. I know I'll forget some names, so I will come back and edit once more names are thrown out.

    First Team
    QB - Peyton Manning
    RB - LaDanian Tomlinson, Lorenzo Neal(no other RB's have been great the majority of this decade, so I'm going with a FB who has been dominant almsot all decade)
    WR - Marvin Harrison, Terrell Owens
    TE - Tony Gonzalez
    T - Jonathan Ogden, Orlando Pace
    G - Will Shields, Steve Hutchinson
    C - Kevin Mawae

    DE - Jason Taylor, Michael Strahan
    DT - Warren Sapp, Casey Hampton
    LB - Ray Lewis, Derrick Brooks, Brian Urlacher
    CB - Champ Bailey, Ty Law
    FS - Ed Reed
    SS - Troy Polamalu

    K - Adam Viniateri
    P - Shane Lechler
    KR - Devin Hester
    PR - Devin Hester
    Coach - Bill Bellicheck

    2nd Team
    QB - Tom Brady
    RB - Shaun Alexander, Clinton Portis
    WR - Randy Moss, Torry Holt
    TE - Antonio Gates
    T - Walter Jones, Willie Roaf
    G - Alan Faneca, Larry Allen
    C - Jeff Saturday

    DE - Julius Peppers, Dwight Freeney
    DT - Richard Seymour, Kevin Williams
    LB - Zach Thomas, Keith Bulluck, Joey Porter
    CB - Chris Mcallister, Ronde Barber
    FS - Brian Dawkins
    SS - John Lynch

    Coach - Tony Dungy
    K - Mike Vanderjackoff
    P - Brian Moorman
    KR - Dante Hall
    PR - Dante Hall




    The position I had probably the most trouble with was RB. While there have been many great RB's this decade, there really hasn't been a RB besides LT who has been great for 5+ years this decade. Marshall Faulk will likely get the honour of being the best player of all time not making an all decade team. He didn't play enough years in either decade, and the decade he was better in(90's), had 3 first ballot HOF guys, and Terrell Davis ahead of him.

    I also gave the teams the 4-3 defense, but a good argument could be made for giving them a 3-4, since at least half of the SB winners this decade ran a 3-4.

    Changes Made:
    Replaced Rodney Harrison with John Lynch
    Added Brian Moorman as second team punter
    Replaced Kris Jenkins and Marcus Stroud with Richard Seymour and Kevin Williams.
    Switched Urlacher and Joey Porter around(noticed the NFL doesn't specify OLB or MLB when choosing players.)
    Replaced Edgerrin James with Clinton Portis
    Replaced Charles Woodson with Ronde Barber

          He is talking about over a certain period of time not just that past couple years.

          We as Ravens fans are clearly scum of the earth, and should just be happy that these great people, who cheer for nothing than the finest, morally impeccable players, playing on the finest, most morally impeccable teams, will grace us with their presence, and words of wisdom.

                I mean also Kris Jenkins, he was great last year, but was he ever like a top DT to warrant an All Decade mentioning?

                  Walter Jones is the best OT of this era. I'd put Pace on the second team.

                  - Ko Simpson

                    Aside from Derrick Brooks, there aren't really any other OLB's besides Porter that have been at a pro bowl level for the majority of the decade. There are MLB guys like Zach Thomas and Urlacher you could argue ahead of him for sure, but I was trying to keep with the 1MLB and 2OLB format on the first team, which I changed for the second team because I felt Thomas and Urlacher both should get on.

                    And as for Kris Jenkins, he was arguably the best DT in the game for a few years earlier on in the decade, specifically when the Panthers went to the SB. He fell off the map for a couple years due to injury and came back at a pro-bowl level this season. I was hesitant on putting him in there, and I may change him to Kevin Williams.

                    As for Shaun Alexander, he had 5 great seasons, which is a lot more than most of the other elite RB's of this decade. There are a lot of guys who only had about 3 great seasons this decade because of reasons like injury, careers just beginning, or careers ending. Like I said, I was unsure when selecting RBs, so there are guys you could definitely make a case for over Alexander, but it's definitely not a stretch having him listed.

                    And thanks for the heads up on Brian Dawkins, thought he was a SS for some reason.

                      even though he has only been great now for 3/4 years i still feel aso should get a mention. karney should be the second team fullback, overall good job


                      Saints 2014 draft wish list:
                      - No pass rusher till the fourth round (or preferably at all)
                      - Corner or Wideout in the first
                      - No reaching
                      - No Kelvin Benjamin

                        Daunte Hall should be first team over Hester.

                          I think Aso is a guy who will get consideration when these lists get done at the end of next season. If he has another year as the undisputed best corner in football, he should at least get a second team spot I think.

                          As for Karney, the teams don't specifically select a full back, but they are eligible for the RB spots. I personally feel that Lorenzo Neal was outstanding enough over a long enough period of time to deserve one of the RB spots.

                            um OLB --> Ware and merriman?

                            Shaun Alexander was really really really helped by the Oline, i mean his left side is on that list...

                              i have serious problems with shaun alexander and rodney harrison...IMO, John Lynch deserves to be on there over harrison, and Shaun Alexander is just plain awful in every sense of the word...I could average 4 YPC behind that left side.
