5 Seahawks formed the 2010 NFL All-Decade team, led by 3 defense


The Seahawks were well represented on the NFL All-Decade team in 2010 when it was revealed on Monday morning, with four players playing most or all of their careers during the decade in Seattle – linebacker Bobby Wagner, cornerback Richard Sherman, safety count Thomas and ball carrier Marshawn Lynch – as well as coach Pete Carroll.

The only other team that had four players who spent most or all of the decade playing for them was the Patriots.

Aren’t you named to the 53-member squad some Seattle fans should have thought of? Many immediately turned to social media and wondered if Kam Chancellor should have joined his other two most famous LOB side mates, while quarterback Russell Wilson was also unsuccessful.

The team was compiled in a vote by the 48-member Pro Football Hall of Fame selection committee. And if there is really good news for those who have done so, the team is often seen as a forerunner that will someday make it to the Professional Football Hall of Fame, with voters often citing it as a key reason for enter.

It was difficult to discuss quarterback choices as the two who made it were Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers, each of whom has won at least one Super Bowl over the decade. And as the league’s own exit noted, Drew Brees, who became the first smuggler in NFL history in terms of yards earned over the decade, was also unsuccessful.

The other securities joining Thomas at security were Eric Berry and Eric Weddle. And as a means of comparison that voters surely have looked at, Berry and Weddle have had more appearances in the Pro Bowl and First All-Pro team over the decade than Chancellor.

Berry, who played for the Chiefs, nodded five times at the Pro Bowl and three All-Pros and Weddle had six Pro Bowl and three All-Pros with the Chargers, Ravens and Rams. The Chancellor was named to four Pro Bowls and did not make an All-Pro team.

Tyrann Mathieu, who has mainly played safety during his career, has also been listed as a defender. Mathieu has only a nod to the Pro Bowl but has been named twice All-Pro, which is generally considered the more prestigious of the two honors.

Lynch joined ball carrier Frank Gore, LeSean McCoy and Adrian Peterson.

The other linebackers with Wagner were Chandler Jones, Luke Kuechly, Khalil Mack and Von Miller.

And the other cornerbacks with Sherman were Patrick Peterson and Darrelle Revis while Chris Harris Jr., who was almost only a cornerback in his career, also included him as a defensive back.

Carroll was joined as a coach by Bill Belichick.
