    I think Rodney Harrison deserves a spot on that team.

    pretty good list

    I like how the Colts and the Pats locked up the 2 most important positions possible in HC and QB

    53 players? Urgh, please nfl grow a pair and give us a list of a starting offense and defense.

    And Tony Dungy is not in BB's class, and thats not the Patriots fan in me speaking at all. Colts look even better with him gone, Bucs won the superbowl with him gone. Not close.

    How Rodney Harrison is not on this team in completely, utterly, and ridiculously beyond me. The guy had 7 interceptions in 9 postseason games this decade.

    Little on the list jumps out at me as stupid. Yeah, I agree re Rodney, but the way they did it isn't that much of a stretch. And who is obviously better than Dungy?

    I do think Scrabble deserves a spot on the CB list.

    well, no active HC is in BB's league (you have to go back to Lombardi, Landry, Noll and Walsh in the modern era even to have a debate about who is the best), but I think the Dungy pick was a good one if you were going to name a second HC for the decade...

    no other HC won two sb's in the decade; however, Dungy and Cowher both went to two Conference Championship Games in addition to winning a SB. The tiebreaker had to be Dungy's regular season record at Indy. Unfairly left out is Andy Reid who went to five CCG's but only one SB and never won the big game.

    Just like the NFL not to just name one "Coach of the Decade" and make it BB.

    I'm a little dissapointed they only had 1 fullback selected. I thought Tony Richardson belonged right there with Neal.

    i would take Mike Vrabel, and he's 694 tackels 57 sacks 11 INT's and 9 Receiving TD's and 2 TD's in the super bowl and 3 rings. over joey porter, and he's 529 tackels 92 sacks and 12 INT's and 1 ring.

    i don't know, probably a pats bias but i think bruschi over zach thomas is debatable. how many superbowls has thomas played in ?

    Thought the same exact thing when I saw Thomas' name and I restrained myself considering I am biased.

    Derrick Mason could had topped Holt, IMO. Tough call in the end.

    The presence of Tony "teams get better when I leave" Dungy on that list cheapens the entire thing.
    Political correctness aka the celebration of mediocrity invades the NFL.
    Sad!
