Underrated
Julian Edelman doesn't tend to get the credit and respect he deserves around the league, but one former player took notice in a recent ESPN segment, putting him ahead of some notable names which created some controversy.

    2015 Cardinals ahead of the 2014 Patriots (not even on the list)? LOL.

    Considering the flukey Kearse catch towards the end, and that stupid 30 second TD drive to close the half, 9 times out of 10, SuperBowl 49 wouldn't be that close.

    2013 Seahawks vs 2014 Patriots probably would be.

    Laughable premise (not repeating) as it undermines the entire validity.

    Buuuuuuut, as other have outlined, it’s offseason crap to entertain & “shock”. As if : 13-3 Cards. Means nothing.

    14-1 with Brady and only loss last second goal line to Seattle. Didn’t lose a game without Gronkowski. Good enough to beat a 13-3 (previous year team) in the road opener with their backup QB. Good enough to overcome a 28-3 deficit with 18 minutes left in SB, against a phenomenal team. The 2016 Pats are the best team of the decade, and if you add Gronkowski the ranking becomes a lot less close.

    I'm about to make a top ten of the teams of the decade using key stats I think are important, so let's put it to the test.

    Still doesn't explain the 10-6 Jaguars making it.

    Honestly I think the whole "no repeats thing" was just there to keep from having to name the Patriots at least 3 times.

    Probably should have just made a top 10 non-Patriots teams.

    Agreed. That’s one example of why I have big problems with the list.

    Of course, someone said one of the rules of the list was that no team could appear more than once, which is total BS.

    Ya, they probably put to much stock in their lasting impression of them almost dethroning the pats in the afc championship game at Gillette immediately after beating the Steelers on the road.

    Only bc they didn’t have any repeats

    Personality I would have put the 14 pats over the 16 pats but I understand why people would think differently

    The 17 eagles being that high is a joke. I’m not sure they would even be on my list.....you know that selection was made just to get under the skin of Boston fans

    The 2017 Eagles being that high certainly isn't a joke. Though it would be fair to put the 2016 Patriots above them ;)

    And they certainly belong on any competent list of top 10 teams from the last decade.

    13-3 (including Mulligan loss w17). 3rd in PF, 4th in PA.

    Won SB with backup QB.

    They have the ring, record, and stats.

    How is that not a top 10 team?

    I started off my post by tossing out the 2011 Packers

    #1 Seed in the AFC, 13-3. Offense was loaded. Brady threw for over 5200 yards. They came within one catch of winning the Super Bowl - if Brady throws the ball over the correct shoulder to Welker. (It was Brady's fault.)

    DBs included Devin McCourty, Patrick Chung, Kyle Arrington and the immortal Sterling Moore. Ras-I Dowling was the bust of the year, but I do not think one position group negates the greatness of that team. On defense they had Warren, Wilfork and a great season from Mark Anderson up front, Mayo, Ninkovich and Brandon Spikes' best season.

    The mere fact that the Patriots had a punter named Zoltan Mesko puts them in the top ten teams of the decade in my book.

    The 2011 Packers failed to win a playoff game. Clutch.

    If you’re gonna mention the front 7, at least mention Andre Carter. Guy made he Pro Bowl that year.

    Yeah. Carter and Anderson were big in 2011. We lost both to free agency, I think.

    No, you're just a homer. That team was a juggernaut all season and beat a very good Patriots team fair and square with their backup QB.
