One of our final all-decade week features will be of interest to fans of AFC West teams. The division dominates NFC North blogger Kevin Seifert's feature on the special teams stars of the decade.

The punter results will make some fans in the division happy. The results will frustrate others.

San Diego punter Mike Scifres was named the all-decade punter. He was selected over Oakland punter Shane Lechler.

Lechler is the AFC's perennial Pro Bowl punter. He is a fantastic punter and Oakland just rewarded him by making him the highest-paid punter in league history. Yet Scifres was recognized for his wonderful touch, which he showed off in a legendary way in a San Diego playoff win over Indianapolis in January.

San Diego long-snapper David Binn also received all-decade honors. He's been a consistent presence for 15 years in San Diego.

Former Kansas City return man Dante Hall was edged out for returner of the decade by Chicago's Devin Hester.

What do you think? Nothing like a punter controversy to send us out of all-decade week.
