By the decade: Series continues
By Mike Sando
We took some time earlier this month to recount the most productive and most acclaimed NFC West players during the first decade of the 2000s. I'll pick up where we left off after first linking back to the various positional items that already ran:
- Offensive line: "The Seahawks' Walter Jones was probably the best offensive lineman in the NFL during the first decade of the 2000s."
- Wide receivers: "Torry Holt set the standard for NFC West receivers during the first decade of the 2000s."
- Quarterbacks. "(Kurt) Warner prevailed as the highest-rated passer among the four quarterbacks with at least 10,000 yards for NFC West teams during the decade."
- Running backs: "Shaun Alexander stands above all others as the NFC West's most productive runner during the first decade of the 2000s."
