A group of writers, broadcasters and team officials gathered today at Gillette Stadium and selected Patriots All-Decade Teams for the 1970s, 1980s and 1990s.
The All-Decade Team for the 1960s was voted on in 1971.
Selecting All-Decade Teams will be a tradition moving forward, with the 2000s All-Decade Team being selected next year.
The All-Decade Teams that were selected today formed the basis for the 50th Anniversary Team, along with current star players. The 50th Anniversary Team was voted on today and will be announced later this year as part of the ongoing 50th Anniversary celebrations.
