    Holt and Pace make the NFL All Decade team.

    Story is on ESPN, congrats to these 2, I miss these guys.


    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.


    NFL All-Decade Team

    Fifty-three players were named to the NFL's All-Decade team on Sunday. Bill Belichick and Tony Dungy were chosen as best coaches. List

    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.

    How could the all decade team exclude Drew Bennett AND Jaimie Duncan?

    Ramming speed to all

    The only things I might've changed are London Fletcher instead of D Ware at linebacker, Lynch over Sharper at safety and Tiki Barber over Jamal Lewis at rb. Good list though, unlike Peter King's.

    Very well deserved by both. Pace in his prime was one of the best pass blocking tackles I've ever seen. Holt no doubt has had an amazing career as well, fastest ever to 10,000 receiving yards I believe, and at one point had the highest yards per game in NFL history.

    yep I would almost forget about Orlando Pace at times and just worry about the rest of the line because he was such a lock to get the job done and shut someone out.

    And Big Game Holt was a amazing receiver for us... both are for sure Hall of Fame contenders

    Pretty good list, I'm happy to see Pace and Holt there. However, I believe Faulk should be there over Alexander

    I think the majority of Faulk's best years were in the 90s, though, inc '99 when I think he had over 1000 rushing AND receiving.

    If any Ram should feel slighted here, I think it's Bruce. Maybe Moss or TO had the better numbers but both had serious attitude issues at times that disrupted the various teams they were with. If I were the coach and I had to pick a "team" to play in the real world, not a fantasy league, I'd take the consummate pro over either of them.

    True, Faulk's numbers definitely fell at the beginning of the decade (round '03), his best was definitely around the end of the 90s. Unfortunately he wasn't on the all 90s team either and I wish he got recognition there (though nothing against the other RBs on the 90s list).

    Man, those receivers are amazing. This has to have been the best decade ever for WR's.
