  • 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?

      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

            I remember, I think it was a monday night football game against the colts a couple years ago, Orlando pace completely shut out dwight freeney and the game announcer whatever they are called pointed that out..

              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.

                        12/21/2005

                        The Rams aren't going to the playoffs this year, but there will be some postseason football for offensive tackle Orlando Pace and wide receiver Torry Holt.

                        Pace and Holt both have been selected to the Pro Bowl, scheduled for Feb. 12 in Honolulu, Hawaii. For Pace, it's his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl berth. It's the fifth Pro Bowl berth for Holt, and his third in a row.

                        The timing of the honor isn't exactly great for Pace, who appeared unsure of who to block on a key fourth-and-1 play against Philadelphia that resulted in a 2-yard loss by Marshall Faulk.

                        Linebacker Dhani Jones, who Pace was supposed to block, made the tackle. In addition, the honor comes just two days after interim head coach Joe Vitt termed the offensive line "soft." But Pace has had another strong season, combining athleticism with experience to lock down the left side for the Rams.

                        He has played gimpy the last few weeks as well, battling hamstring, groin, and hip ailments.

                        Holt also has been slowed by injury, a knee problem that sidelined him for two games and slowed him in several others. Nonetheless, he's caught 88 passes for 1,128 yards and eight touchdowns. He ranks third in the NFL in receptions and is seventh in yards gained.

                        The Rams have had at least two players selected to the Pro Bowl every season since the 1999 Super Bowl championship campaign.

                        The Rams are sending two familiar faces to Hawaii for the Pro Bowl this year as left tackle Orlando Pace and receiver Torry Holt have been chosen to make the trip.

                        Both played in last year's Pro Bowl and have been the team's most consistent performers again this season.

                        This will be Holt's fifth Pro Bowl appearance. Despite missing a pair of games, Holt has posted 88 catches for 1,128 yards and eight touchdowns.

                        Pace will be making his seventh appearance, with all of those appearances coming consecutively.

                        Pace, Little, and Holt are now the last remaining members of our Super Bowl champion team (1999). They are now nine years older and on the downside of their careers. It was a great run with them however we wasted some of their best football years with poor defense and special teams. I wish we could have won at least one more super bowl but I am greatful for the GSOT era.

                        Will the numbers 81 Holt and 76 Pace

                        be retired with the Ram greats below. I think they certainly should. Both have 7 Pro Bowl Appearances and Super Bowl Rings. Will they also be enshrined in the Hall of Fame..I hope so...but remember :

                        Deacon Jones 8 Pro Bowls and the man who coined the word Sack does not have his number #75 retired ? Hard to believe.

                        Retired Numbers :
