This is the fifth in a series of picking players of the decades. We began with 1915-25, then the 1920s, the 1925-35 period, the 1930s and now we tackle the 1935-45 span. Once again, we consulted Chris Willis of NFL Films to help make the selections.
Here are our picks:
1935-45 Player of the Decade
1935-45 Defensive Player of the Decade
1935-45 Player of the Decade Runner-Up
1935-45 Defensive Player of the Decade Runner-Up
Next up: The 1940s.
