Nine Packers made ESPN’s NFC North All-Decade Team.

Overall, the past decade was a huge success for the Green Bay Packers.

They won a Super Bowl, won the NFC North six times, made the playoffs eight times, and reached the NFC Championship Game on four occasions.

Few teams around the league had as much success as Green Bay in the past 10 years.

Which Packers made the team?

ESPN has put together an NFC North All-Decade Team, a great reminder of how many great players have been part of this division over the past 10 years. Unsurprisingly, Green Bay has nine selections, most of them on offense.

On offense, quarterback Aaron Rodgers, wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Davante Adams, tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga, and guard Josh Sitton made the team. The offense is dominated by the Packers.

On defense, defensive end Julius Peppers and linebacker Clay Matthews are Green Bay’s only selections. On special teams, longtime kicker Mason Crosby makes the team.

Sitton and Peppers also played for the Chicago Bears during the decade.

Former head coach Mike McCarthy was also named the NFC North coach of the decade, which should also come as no surprise given the success he had, including leading the Packers to their fourth Super Bowl championship.

It’s hard to have too many arguments with this team. While you can always make a case for other players to be selected — from all four teams — it’s difficult to pick a team from an entire decade of football.

The team features not only current and former Packers who have been huge contributors to the team’s success, but also many players who have given consistently played well against the Packers such as Adrian Peterson, Calvin Johnson, and Ndamukong Suh.
