Sporting News’ NFL All-Decade team for the 2010s

first_imgCutting through all the greatness, here are the 26 men who most deserve the honors of being the best at their positions over the past 10 years.Sporting News’ NFL all-decade team: OffenseQB: Tom Brady, PatriotsPro Bowls: 9 | First-team All-Pros: 2 | Super Bowl wins: 3 | MVPs: 2Whether it’s the magic of the TB12 method or Brady adjusting his game to new surroundings at a level never seen before, he was rejuvenated in his 30s and into his 40s. He doubled his ring collection and went from among the top-five quarterback greats to unquestioned GOAT.RB: LeSean McCoy, Eagles, Bills and ChiefsPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 3McCoy has rushed for 11,071 yards and 73 touchdowns since 2010 during his time with three teams. He has added 3,797 yards receiving with 16 more scores. He is a top-25 all-time NFL rusher now playing into his 30s.RB: Adrian Peterson, Vikings, Saints, Cardinals, RedskinsPro Bowls: 4 | First-team All-Pros: 2Peterson keeps climbing the all-time rushing list at age 34, proving to be an age- and injury-defying freak of nature. He has rushed for most of his career 14,102 rushing yards since 2010 and recently passed Curtis Martin for No. 5 all-time. He also has delivered 72 rushing TDs in the decade with really only seven full seasons.WR: Julio Jones, FalconsPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 2Since being drafted into the league in 2011, Jones has been a dominant, often uncoverable force with his combination of size (6-3, 220), strength and speed. Mostly durable to play through all kinds of minor injuries, he’s racked up 11,881 receiving yards and 57 receiving TDs, twice leading the league in yardage.WR: Antonio Brown, Steelers and PatriotsPro Bowls: 7 | First-team All-Pros: 4Brown’s career might be over after it spanned the entire decade. During the best days with the Steelers, he was a steal of sixth-round draft pick in 2010. In only a little more than nine seasons, Brown posted 11,263 receiving yards and 75 TDs.TE: Rob Gronkowski, PatriotsPro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 4 | Super Bowl wins: 3Whether or not Gronk decides to unretire and return in either 2020 or beyond, his legacy as arguably the best all-around tight end ever is cemented. From 2010 through 2018, he posted 7,861 yards and 79 TDs in only 115 regular-season games while also dominating as a blocker.OT: Joe Thomas, BrownsPro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 5Thomas (6-6, 312 pounds) was a rock for the Browns’ blind side from when he was a first-rounder in 2007 through his retirement in 2017. He gave everything he could as a pass protector and run blocker, and he did it as a class act all the way in Cleveland.OT: Tyron Smith, CowboysPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 2Smith (6-5, 320 pounds) was the literal first cornerstone piece of the Cowboys’ offensive line rebuild, which has turned to the foundation for their running and pass success over the decade. He is still only 28 with many more great years ahead.G: Marshal Yanda, RavensPro Bowls: 7 | First-team All-Pros: 2 | Super Bowl wins: 1Yanda (6-3, 305 pounds) keeps playing well as a 35-year-old finishing his 13th season. He has been key to their run blocking over the years and a stable force in keeping the rest of the unit together through several changes.G: Zack Martin, CowboysPro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 3Martin (6-4, 315 pounds) easily made this list despite playing only six of the 10 seasons of the decade. He has been the powerful interior force who plays through every injury and is consistent in creating his athletic push for the running and passing games.C: Maurkice Pouncey, SteelersPro Bowls: 7 | First-team All-Pros: 2Pouncey (6-4, 304 pounds) has been the anchor for many strong Steelers lines in the Mike Tomlin era since 2010. He is the guy who makes the line calls and gets everything to work so well up front, reliable for his quarterbacks and his power runners alike.Sporting News’ NFL all-decade team: DefenseDT: Aaron Donald, RamsPro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 4 | Defensive Player of the Year Awards: 2Donald (6-1, 280 pounds) isn’t the biggest guy for his disruptive interior position, but he packs power with amazing athleticism for that size. Playing since 2014 was good enough for him to make this list with 70.5 sacks in 92 games.DT: Geno Atkins, BengalsPro Bowls: 7 | First-team All-Pros: 2Atkins (6-1, 300 pounds) is one of the most underrated players of the past decade. Not anymore with this mention, celebrating his run stuffing and inside pass rushing (75.5 sacks in 151 games).DE: J.J. Watt, Texans Pro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 5 | Defensive Player of the Year Awards: 3With his latest major injury at age 30, this could be it for Watt, but he is worthy now to be mentioned with the best defensive players ever at any position. The 6-5, 288-pounder was the king of sacks, swats and blowing up run plays with 96 sacks in 112 games, despite having played only six full seasons.DE: Calais Campbell, Cardinals and JaguarsPro Bowls: 4 | First-team All-Pros: 1Campbell has incredible size (6-8, 300 pounds) for the position and he has excelled in both 3-4 and 4-3 schemes. He got a lot more attention in his 30s for his marquee dominance in Jacksonville. In addition to wreaking havoc against the run, he has 81 sacks since 2010.EDGE: Von Miller, BroncosPro Bowls: 7 | First-team All-Pros: 3 | Super Bowl wins: 1Miller, in the same 2011 draft class as Watt, has 105 sacks in his 133 career games. He may have slowed down a little in 2019, but he is as consistent as they come in going after and dropping quarterbacks. EDGE: Khalil Mack, Raiders and BearsPro Bowls: 4 | First-team All-Pros: 3 | Defensive Player of the Year awards: 1He also needed only six seasons to make the cut, as he has been exceptional at both end and outside linebacker in his six-year career. Mack (6-3, 269 pounds) is great at getting to the quarterback (60.5 sacks in 92 games), but he cleans up against the run, too and is athletic enough to drop into coverage.LB: Bobby Wagner, SeahawksPro Bowls: 5 | First-team All-Pros: 4 | Super Bowl wins: 1The Legion of Boom is gone, but Wagner (6-0, 242) lingers as the linchpin of Pete Carroll’s defense and the other steal of the 2012 draft after quarterback Russell Wilson. Wagner is not only a playmaking machine (1,120 tackles with 18.5 sacks and 10 INTs in eight seasons) but he also is an indispensable on-field leader.LB: Luke Kuechly, PanthersPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 5 | Defensive Player of the Year awards: 1Kuechly (6-3, 238 pounds) is the prototypical modern linebacker because he is great at flying upfield to make tackles (1,108 with 12.5 sacks in eight seasons) and also covering backs and tight ends downfield (18 INTs, 65 passes defended). He is the glue of the entire defense.CB: Patrick Peterson, CardinalsPro Bowls: 8 | First-team All-Pros: 3He is yet another first-round pick from the great draft class of 2011. At 6-1, 203 pounds, Peterson has used his size as well as his speed to be a shutdown corner during his best days. He has 25 interceptions and 81 passes defended as one of the most durable and consistent cover men at the position.CB: Darrelle Revis, Jets, Buccaneers, Patriots and ChiefsPro Bowls: 3 | First-team All-Pros: 3 | Super Bowl wins: 1It was tough to find the second corner but the retired Revis (5-11, 198 pounds) had to be the choice. He had 15 of his 29 career interceptions in the decade. Before he faded hitting 30, he was worthy of the “Revis Island” nickname for how he isolated and shut down opponents’ best wide receivers.S: Earl Thomas, Seahawks and RavensPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 3 | Super Bowl wins: 1Thomas (5-10, 202) is the ultimate playmaker at the position with great range and ball skills. He has 30 interceptions, 71 passes defended and 729 tackles in 10 years. He was the Legion of Boom member with the most complete resume to make the cut.S: Eric Weddle, Chargers, Ravens and RamsPro Bowls: 6 | First-team All-Pros: 2The bearded maven has been as intimidating as he looks with his mighty 5-11, 195-pound frame. Twenty five of his career 29 interceptions have come in the decade, along with 6 sacks and 887 tackles. He also has been a well-respected leader in all three stops.Sporting News’ NFL all-decade team: Special teamsK: Justin Tucker, Ravens Pro Bowls: 2 | First-team All-Pros: 3 | Super Bowl wins: 1Tucker is a consummate pro, having made 90.6 percent of his career field-goal attempts (260-of-287) and has missed only three career extra-point attempts (292 of 295). He has great range and consistently makes clutch kicks, regardless of weather.P: Johnny Hekker, Rams The NFL has had 10 fine decades of existence. The one that’s just finishing, between 2010 and 2019, produced some of the greatest players to ever play the game across all positions.Football has never been faster with so many explosive athletes. It also has become smarter with so many cerebral, hard-working performers on both sides of the ball. Only a select few players, however, can make the cut for Sporting News’ latest NFL all-decade team. Pro Bowls: 4 | First-team All-Pros: 4The Rams have had ace special teams for a long time, and he is a big reason why. Hekker has averaged 47.1 yards per punt with an impressive 43.4 net yards and has dropped 229 of his 590 career punts inside the 20.KR/PR: Devin Hester, Bears and FalconsPro Bowls: 2 | First-team All-Pro: 1″Devin Hester you are ridiculous!” should be his epithet. During his last four years with the Bears, he had 7 of his 19 career return TDs, and he led the league in kickoff return yardage in both 2013 and 2014.last_img read more

Thank you for your input. 0 Vote up Vote down clyde · 248 weeks ago What Argonia-Attica why so small, what happened in twenty years? A larger town even lies between you. You both used to have plenty of kids, everyone could have played eleven man back then, no doubt now. But coaches at your small schools only needs nine starters for baseball, five for basketball and eight for football. Looks like they don’t need to look beyond the same select kids, and go begging to the rest! Hey this keeps them from making eleven guys popular in high school. Huh no wonder why they all keep shrinking. Football teaches kids under 6’3′ nothing. They will never play for an upper division college, so recruiters very rarely if ever come calling. Baseball was the great American sport where everyone had a chance to go big league, you didn’t need to be a giant and kids didn’t die. They may have got a black eye or broken bone once in a long while but it didn’t damage health or end kids lives for nothing. Football is child endangerment, child abuse licensed by the state and school districts. When kids play this rough at home the school staff has to notify SRS, then the state shows up to take you’re kids away.

That game starts at 3 p.m. on Saturday.As far as Conway Springs is concerned, the Cardinals season is over after losing to Wichita Collegiate 63-6.•••••A&A 48 Hartford 0A 69-yard touchdown pass from Alec McDaniel to Devon Newberry wrapped up the game in the waning seconds of the first half, marking the eighth consecutive game in which the contest was completed at halftime.McDaniel was involved in four of A&A’s touchdowns as the Titans took a 26-0 first quarter lead before adding 22 points in the second quarter. Hartford, in northern Kansas, had only one scoring threat midway through the second quarter. That was thwarted at the 10 on fourth down late in the quarter which led to the big passing play.Now A&A sets its sights on Pike Valley in the Class 8-man Division II second round.“They have a very good running game led by a sophomore running back,” said co-head coach Luke Greenwood. “They play a lot of smash mouth football.“We will have to play downhill on defense and fly to the football.”Greenwood said the Titans will also have to make their reads since they have some pretty good play-action off their power game.“Offensively, we are going to have block better than we did last night and we may have to open up the offense a little if they start packing the box,” he said. “Also, we have to take advantage of our opportunities when they present themselves.”For pictures of the game, click here.Caldwell 72 Crest-Colony 44Caldwell was only 4-5 going into the first round playoff game Tuesday night, but that didn’t seem to matter after it pasted Crest by 28 points. After giving up a 65 yard touchdown in the first quarter, it would rattle off three touchdowns to take a 20-6 lead.Crest came back to score two touchdowns to start the second quarter to take a temporary 22-20 lead. However, Colton Ward scored one of his six touchdowns with 2:50 in the half on a 38-yard carry to give Caldwell a 28-22 advantage at the half.The Bluejays would then score three of the four third quarter touchdowns and took a 50-28 lead into the final stanza. The Jays would never look back.“I thought going in that we had a good chance to control this game,” said Sean Blosser, Caldwell head football coach. “They really stepped up their game last night.Dakota Volavka had 186 yards rushing with three touchdowns. Colten Ward rushed for 152 yards and five touchdowns. See stats here: Box Scores for Caldwell @ CrestCaldwell has its work cut out for it this weekend when Axtell comes to town. Axtell if you remember was in Sumner County last year, losing to A&A in the semifinals.“They like to pass,” Blosser said. “They will come out in a spread formation, and throw the ball all over the field. They also do a lot of traps and quarterback draws.”Collegiate 63 Conway Springs 6The Cardinals were obviously overmatched by a team that trounced Wellington earlier in the season. Conway Springs got off to a decent start though when Colton Terhune threw an 83-yard touchdown pass to Josh Dugan at 6:01 in the first quarter to make it 7-6. But it was all Collegiate from that point forward. The stats can be found here: Conway Springs – Box Score Report – 11_4_2015Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

‘The Jordan Rules’: What to know about the defense the ‘Bad Boys’ Pistons made famous

first_imgIn the three years leading up to Michael Jordan’s first championship with the Chicago Bulls, the same team knocked him out of the playoffs each and every time.That team? The “Bad Boys” Detroit Pistons. That stretch of Jordan’s career was highlighed in Episodes 3 and 4 of ESPN’s “The Last Dance” documentary. In 1988, the Pistons put an end to Chicago’s season by defeating them in five games in the Eastern Conference semifinals. In 1989, the Pistons outlasted the Bulls in six games in the Eastern Conference finals. And in 1990, the Pistons took care of business in seven games, once again in the Eastern Conference finals.MORE: Viral moments from “The Last Dance”Jordan still put up big individual numbers in each of those series, but the Pistons were able to contain him and the Bulls in a way no other team in the league could at the time. To put the success they had against him into perspective, if you look at which players won the most games against Jordan in his career (regular season and playoffs combined), the first seven names on the list are players from those Pistons teams, headlined by Bill Laimbeer and Isiah Thomas.The most wins against Michael Jordan in his NBA career(Basketball-Reference )RankPlayerWinsLosses1Bill Laimbeer36302Isiah Thomas36293Vinnie Johnson35244Joe Dumars33375Dennis Rodman33266John Salley32287Rick Mahorn30328Robert Parish27259James Edwards261810Danny Ainge2618The way the Pistons did it was by implementing what has become known as “The Jordan Rules,” which is a set of principles devised by former Pistons head coach Chuck Daly after Jordan dropped 59 points on the Pistons in the lead-up to the 1988 NBA playoffs. The general idea was to limit Jordan the best they could by throwing different looks at him and being physical with him, all while daring his teammates to beat them. It began with Joe Dumars and Dennis Rodman, who served as Detroit’s primary defenders on Jordan, and extended to the likes of Laimbeer, John Salley and Rick Mahorn, who were tasked with doubling Jordan and protecting the paint against him.MORE: Breaking down MJ’s iconic fadeawayRemember, this was at a time when hand checking was still legal. Teams could also get away with — shall we say — committing harder fouls than they do now.Brendan Malone, who was an assistant coach with the Pistons at the time, summed up the Jordan Rules in “The Last Dance.””On the wings we were going to push him to the elbow, and we’re not going to let him drive to the baseline.”No. 2, when he’s on top, we’re going to influence him to his left.”When he got the ball in the low post, we were going to trap him from the top.”That’s the Jordan Rules, and it was that simple.”And, when asked what would happen when Jordan did make the baseline, that’s when Malone responded: “That’s when Lambeir and Mahorn would go up and knock him down to the ground.”Or, as Rodman put it: “Chuck Daly said, ‘This is the Jordan Rule. Every time he go to the basket, put him on the ground. When he comes to the basket, he ain’t gonna duck. We’re gonna hit you, and you’re gonna be on the ground.'”It wasn’t until 1991 that Jordan would finally outlast the Pistons in the playoffs. He ended the team’s hopes of a three-peat that season by leading the Bulls to a sweep over the Pistons in the Eastern Conference Finals with averages of 29.8 points, 7.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds, 2.3 steals and 1.8 blocks per game. He was incredibly efficient, shooting 53.5 percent from the field, 60.0 percent from 3-point range and 83.3 percent from the free throw line.Jordan received plenty of help in that series, with Scottie Pippen (22.0), Horace Grant (13.5) and Bill Cartwright (10.5) each averaging double figures scoring. The Bulls went on to defeat the Los Angeles Lakers in the 1991 Finals to win the first championship in franchise history. It marked the first of three straight titles for the Bulls.But for Jordan, the emotions of finally beating the Pistons were just as strong as capturing the NBA title.”We had gotten past them,” he said, “and to me, that was in some ways better than winning the championship.”last_img read more
