In Response to Team of the Decade: 2010 to 2020
[QUOTE]As a Patriots fan, I consider the Patriots to be the Team of the Decade. 3 Super Bowls, 4 appearances, a legitimate contender every year almost. Some argue the Steelers, and there's that small (moronic) group that support the Colts. Who, if anyone, in the NFL is primed to be the team of the next decade given their roster, system, etc?

While the rest of the roster certainly matters, I'd say it's the teams with the best young quarterbacks that are in the best position to dominate the next decade.
-The Chargers (Rivers, good defense, and only LT is aging)
-The Steelers (Roethlisberger + Polamalu = competitive)
-The Falcons (Matt Ryan)
-The Packers (Aaron Rodgers)
-The Texans (Just a hunch - need a #2 receiver and a playmaking safety)
-The Dolphins (Vontae Davis is the next shutdown corner, Henne doesn't lose games, and there's a good system in place there with Parcells in charge)
The Pats and Colts will ride their Hall of Fame QB's as far as they can go. I think Hoyer could be the next Brady (not HOF, but just do enough to not lose games on a winning team).
