NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team

The National Football League 100th Anniversary All-Time Team was revealed in 2019 after being voted on by a panel consisting of media members, former players and league personnel. It honored the best players of the first 100 years of the National Football League (NFL). Tom Brady, Larry Fitzgerald, and Adam Vinatieri were the only active players when the team was revealed (although Rob Gronkowski was selected before retirement, and came out of retirement for the 2020 NFL season), while Bill Belichick was the only active head coach to be selected.

Selection process

The team was chosen by a panel of 26 voters made up of coaches, team and front office executives, former players and members of the media between April and June 2018. New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick and Pro Football Hall of Fame head coach John Madden were also two of the voters and were in charge of looking over film and issuing a report to the committee on players in the early years of the league. There was a vote to trim the list to 160 in mid-May 2018, after considering the "Golden Era" players recommended by Belichick and Madden. Another debate was held in May with the final votes due on June 15, 2018.[1]

Players were selected at each position group, and were voted in no order. There were 10 quarterbacks, 12 running backs, 10 wide receivers, five tight ends, seven tackles, seven guards, four centers, seven defensive ends, seven defensive tackles, six outside linebackers, six middle/inside linebackers, seven cornerbacks, seven safeties, two kickers, two punters, two kick/punt returners, and 10 coaches selected to the team.[1]

The roster was unveiled over six weeks on NFL Network by host Rich Eisen alongside Cris Collinsworth and Belichick.

The committee of 25 had two long conference calls in April 2018 to handle the nominating process. Belichick and Madden were tabbed to pore over film and their own knowledge to issue a report to the committee on the players in the early years of the league. There was a vote to trim the list to 160 in mid-May, after considering the true old-timers recommended by Belichick and Madden. Over a long meeting in late May, final discussions and debates were held. Our votes were due June 15, 2018.
