The NFL's All-Time team has begun to be announced with running backs, which contained only one player (Emmitt Smith) who played in the current century.

“This could easily have been 500,” voter Bill Belichick said.

Belichick was the most talkative voter among the 25. Belichick talked more about players from the first 30 years of pro football than the last 30.

The committee of 25 had two long conference calls in April 2018 to handle the nominating process. The final votes were due June 15, 2018.
