Combined All-Decade Teams - 1990s

Things You Can Never Lay Your Hands On
by John Turney

The number of groups picking All-Decade teams shrunk to four. Pro Football Chronicles and Sunday Mayhem were published in the early 1990s and no updates to their All-Decade teams were never made. And this research couldn't find selections by the usual football magazines such as College & Pro Football Newsweekly, Pro Football Weekly or Football Digest. 

The selections:
