Default 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

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.

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

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.

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.

Porter gets the nod on my list over Ware and Merriman because of doing it the whole decade. Merriman and Ware have only played 3 and 4 seasons respectively. If Ware has another season close to what he just had, he has a shot at getting on one of the teams. But in all likelyhood he will end up being one of the players who gets snubbed on these teams, because of not playing enough seasons in either decade.

And if you take Alexander off the list, who do you put on? The same argument would be made against Priest Holmes, because he ran behind an (arguably)even better O-Line, and was great for even less time. Portis could take his place, the knock on him though is he's never really put together a spectacular season. A good argument can be made against Edge as well... RB is a hard spot to select though for this period of time.

The primary factor in all decade teams is what the player accomplished during that time. Shaun Alexander had 100 TDs and 9,453 yards in the 2000's. He'll at least get second team.

Not to be a homer, but Brian Moorman should probably be 2nd team punter

Priest Holmes or maybe Marshall Faulk probably deserve 2nd team RB over Alexander and James

agreed. hester may have had the best statistical season out of the two, but he really has only had an great impact for the one season. with hall, it was a few seasons where he was the best. dont think that i am taking anything away from hester, i'd love to have him returning kicks for the vikes, but as of now(even though he has plenty of time to regain form), he isnt that scary returning the kicks. the bears screwed up when they tried to make him a #1 receiver. they should have left him alone, just returning kicks, making half a dozen highlight reels a year.

I have Moorman as the second team punter now.

And while I'm a big Marshall Faulk fan, I don't think he belongs on this all-decade team. He only really had 3 seasons('00-'02) where he was great. Like I said before, he really gets shafted because of being split almost equally amongst the two decades, and facing very stiff competition with the 90's squad.

As for Fred Taylor, he had 6 good seasons this decade. The best of which being a 1400 yard 12 touchdown performance. Shaun Alexander on the other hand has had 5 good seasons this decade, the best of which being a 1880 yard 27 TD season. In Alexander's 5th best season he had 1175 yards and 16 TD's, which is almost, or just, as good as Taylor's best season. A similar argument can also be made for Edge over Taylor as well... It just isn't quite as statistically decisive.
