Vote for the Falcons All-Decade defense and special teams from the 2000s

We have a lot of voting to do once you get past the defensive line.

After looking through your nominees for the best defenders and special teamers of the 2000s, we have some serious voting to do. You all agreed with me on the four men who should start on our defensive line—they were admittedly easy choices, with Jonathan Babineaux and John Abraham showing up for a second time—but things get dicier from there.

As always, vote your conscience and we’ll use your votes to assemble the final All-Decade team for the 2000s. Then we get into the 1990s, where I have a lot of my most vivid childhood memories of the team.

One small oversight on my part: I did not include a returner on this list for the 2000s, which is kind of embarrassing. Good thing the choice is pretty obvious, with Allen Rossum putting up insane numbers for the Falcons over a five year stretch in that decade.

Defensive Ends: John Abraham & Patrick Kerney

Defensive Tackles: Jonathan Babineaux & Rod Coleman

Linebackers: Keith Brooking, Michael Boley & ....
