On Monday, ESPN kicked off their NFL All-Decade Week. Monday they unveiled their all-decade defense and on Tuesday they unveiled their all-decade offense. So naturally on Thursday we will give our two cents on how well the “World-Wide Sports Leader” did.
QB: Tom Brady, New England – No brainer.
RB: LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego – No brainer
FB: Lorenzo Neal, Cincinnati/S.D./Balt. –Mike Alstott?
WR: Marvin Harrison, Indianapolis – Pretty strong choice. T.O. or Moss, maybe?
WR: Torry Holt, St. Louis – The shakier of the two. T.O. or Moss could easily have this spot
TE: Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City – No brainer
T: Walter Jones, Seattle –No brainer
T: Jonathan Ogden, Baltimore – No brainer
G: Alan Faneca, Pittsburgh/N.Y. Jets – No brainer
G: Steve Hutchinson, Seattle/Minnesota – No brainer
C: Olin Kreutz, Chicago – Hard to argue. Kevin Mawae, maybe?
DE: Michael Strahan, N.Y. Giants – No brainer
DT: Warren Sapp, Tampa Bay/Oakland – Pretty strong.
DT: Kris Jenkins, Carolina/N.Y. Jets – Not as strong. Pat Williams? La’Roi Glover?
DE: Jason Taylor, Miami/Washington – No brainer
LB: Derrick Brooks, Tampa Bay – No brainer
LB: Ray Lewis, Baltimore – I think he’s overrated, but you can’t argue with the numbers
LB: Brian Urlacher, Chicago – Zach Thomas?
CB: Champ Bailey, Washington/Denver – No brainer
CB: Troy Vincent: Phil./Mia./Buff./Wash. – Ty Law? Charles Woodson?
S: Ed Reed, Baltimore – No brainer
S: Troy Polamalu, Pittsburgh – Brian Dawkins? John Lynch?
Who else would you add?
