    Some interesting moments in there. #1 is the Mo Lewis hit on Drew Bledsoe that led to Tom Brady getting his shot. Hard to argue with that.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    I would say that list is pretty solid.

    Thanks for posting that my friend.

    I think the list has everything big deal in the last decade. Probably the most talked about events as well as the plays that will live on forever in instant replay.

    What is the list missing? Here are some that come to mind
    - 99 yards in Superbowl by Harrison.
    - Vikings vs Chargers two records: AP 298 and the field goal return
    - The return game from Hall then Hester.
    - Denny Green's blow up moment.
    - 0-16 team and 16-0 team.
    We're bringing purple back.

    It's hard to define 'the return game' as a moment ... But if you want a moment that defined what Hall and Hester brought to the return game, how about Hester's opening-kickoff-of-the-superbowl return against Indy. For two weeks, Indy knew they were going to kick off to him. They were telling all the reporters that they were going to kick off to him. The players knew they had to cover him, and he still broke it for a TD. That was an impressive moment.

    7. The Tuck Rule play. The game-turning Tom Brady non-fumble call late in the snowy Raiders-Patriots 2002 AFC divisional playoff was the controversy that served to usher in a decade seemingly dominated by instant-replay reviews and debates
    And the damn rule still exists. Man, that was/is one infuriating moment.

    Yeah I can agree to that. I guess every return is electrifying so picking one to stand out for the whole decade is tough, but the one you went with is perfect. I was thinking more so as a whole with all the touchdowns those guys scored in the decade but I guess this is more of a one play thing.
