hutson just was a good football player and even today he would be
CM is a moron, I was pointing out the greatest receiver of his era and his amazing records compared with his era and it's obvious that if he played now with all the nutrition, the great football, the beautiful stadiums, the passing formations, the laxed rules for the offense you name it he would be great today also! To not put his name in the discussion is ridiculous! I wrote Jerry Rice is my all-time guy but to ignore Don Hutson is so ignorant!
To see the Football Network make him the number 1 all-time Packer player is so telling and they get it as I do and you do!
It's like the idiots on this site that years ago wrote that Gordie Howe
would be a 4th line player today and all of that sh*t and we only saw Howe at the age of 50 score 99 points and he played with Gretzky against the Russians with the WHA and their line was dominate and Gordie was fine playing with Gretzky and Mark Howe
You look to see how a guy did in his era and his conditions, rules, against his competition and that is how you judge the guy!
It's obvious to most but not Cookie Moron that Don Hutson was DOMINATE and the NFL Network just last night showed a Top 10 Packers of all-time show and get it like you and I do!
He set the receivers TD record that lasted almost 45 years for chrissakes in an era with a sh*tty ball, defenses that could hold and maul all over the field, no facemasks, sh*tty grass fields filled with rocks for chrissakes, and not the passing formations of today and he only played in 116 games!
Once again CM is a moron!
