Arizona Cardinals News: Sean Morey Named Special Teams Player of the Decade

New, comments

The end of a decade always launches interesting fodder for most talking heads and with this being the first internet dominated decade, I'm sure we'll see more than ever before. Leading the way so far is Sports Illustrated and they've put out an impressive list of "decade talk" including the All Decade Team, Ten Signature Moments, the Highlights and Lowlights and the best plays, signings and draft picks of the decade. As we all know the Arizona Cardinals are not normally considered in any "best of" conversations but the past two or three years have started to change the perception of those in the national media. The Cardinals are represented to two prominent categories:

Special Teams Player of the Decade - Sean Morey:  Morey has only been a Cardinal for three seasons but he's still made a significant impact not only on this team but on the NFL as a whole over the past decade. Not only has Morey survived longer than most as the "special teams ace," he's done it for three playoff teams and appeared in the Super Bowl twice. Over the course of the past ten years Morey has led his team in special teams tackles in five of the eight seasons that he's played and his blocked punt of Matt McBriar last year might have been the best Cardinals-related special teams play of the last quarter century.

Best Super Bowl - XLII Cardinals vs. Steelers: We all know what happened so there's no real need to pour salt in these wounds right?

Thoughts on the last decade of football? Is this the best decade of Cardinals football that you've ever witnessed?  Those that have followed the team since the heights of the '70's, care to comment?
