Default Polamalu Elected to All-Decade Team

53 players named to All-Decade team

Troy Polamalu makes the cut. Former Steelers Alan Faneca and Joey Porter also made it.

MIAMI -- Quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady joined two-time selections Willie Roaf, Larry Allen and Warren Sapp among the 53 players announced Sunday as members of the NFL's All-Decade team.


Bill Belichick and Tony Dungy were selected as the best coaches of the decade, and Dante Hall made it as both a kick and punt returner.


Roaf, Allen and Sapp were also part of the 1990s team.


Manning and Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney, along with New Orleans safety Darren Sharper, were part of the team and will be playing in the Super Bowl. A dozen players on the 2000s squad also were playing in Sunday's Pro Bowl.
Shaun Alexander, Jamal Lewis, Edgerrin James and LaDainian Tomlinson were the running backs, with Lorenzo Neal at fullback. Marvin Harrison, Torry Holt, Randy Moss and Terrell Owens were the wide receivers, and the tight ends picked by the Pro Football Hall of Fame Selection Committee were Antonio Gates and Tony Gonzalez.


Completing the offense were linemen Walter Jones, Jonathan Ogden, Orlando Pace, Alan Faneca, Steve Hutchinson, Will Shields, Olin Kreutz and Kevin Mawae, Roaf and Allen.


On defense, Ray Lewis, Derrick Brooks, Joey Porter, Zach Thomas, Brian Urlacher and DeMarcus Ware were the linebackers, Julius Peppers, Michael Strahan, Jason Taylor and Freeney were the ends, with La'Roi Glover, Richard Seymour, Kevin Williams and Sapp at tackle.


The secondary included Ronde Barber, Champ Bailey, Ty Law, Charles Woodson, Brian Dawkins, Troy Polamalu, Ed Reed and Sharper.


Specialists were kickers David Akers and Adam Vinatieri, and punters Shane Lechler and Brian Moorman. Devin Hester and Josh Cribbs, the NFL's career leader with eight kick return touchdowns, joined Hall as returners.

I'm sorry but Hines as to be on the WR list and how can Potsie not get some love? DeMarcus Ware? He gets more pub on reputation than his play.

Hines deserves to be there, but you knew knew wouldn't be. He didn't have the fantasy stats early in the decade. As for Potsie, he has been real consistent for us, but there is no way they bump Ray the knife or Brian -did anybody get the license plate on the Jerome - Urlacker from the list. So it would be between Potsie and Zack Thomas. I'd take Potsie but I am biased, obviously. The guy who really should be there is "big snack." The guys who made it are mostly 4-3 guys. They needed to put a true NT on that team.

La'Roi Glover is a nose tackle..... He's played 4-3 defensive tackle most of his career, but he played 3-4 in Dallas, New Orleans and Oakland in the past. He had 10 sacks as a nose tackle and 17 sacks as a 3-4 defensive end/Tackle.

But the two that are gone made their marks on the Steelers. Sure does make me proud to be a Steelers fan.
