Please, allow me to correct my post which had apparently offended you.
Don Hutson played in an NFL that excluded black players, therefore he did NOT play against the best competition available.
It's not "race baiting"and I never said you brought up race.
I'm trying to explain to you, politely and respectfully, that is not rational to say a player is the second best of all time if he played in a league that didn't allow certain athletes to play in it.
Maybe I didn't make it clear what I meant by "yesteryear", but I was taking about Hutsons era, the non integrated era.
If you go back and read through the thread , I asked the same question over and over and over again which as usual got completely ignored because it's valid.
"How many black cornerbacks did Hutson face?"
It wasn't race baiting, I was hoping someone would look it up because my entire point was there wasn't any and maybe, just maybe people here could could come to the realistic conclusion that because of that fact, Hutson didn't play against the best possible competition like a guy like Moss does.
As far as mentioning guys like JjWatts and Vince Wilfork, I brought them up because there wasn't guys that size and athletic in the NFL . Supplement, training and vitamins don't make you 6'8". They help, Randy Moss would've been the fastest guy by far, even if he played in 1938 with Hutson.
Btw, I never said Hutson couldn't play in today's NFL. Go back and look. I said he'd be 3rd or 4th receiver on most teams, like the other white receivers you mentioned.
And as far as players of "yesteryear", in Big Jacks posts about the NBA, I clearly stated that the greats of the past could play in today's NBA and even dominate. Why? Because they played against the best the country has to offer and proved it. Hutson didn't.
If my post came across as some young punk saying "old timers couldn't hang with my generation", I apologize, it's not how I meant it to seem. My "lol...You're wrong" was about you thinking I'm was trying to make some generation vs generation argument.
I was referring to a specific player, playing in a non integrated league that he dominated because he wasn't playing against the best competition and therefore can't be the second best receiver ever. It's why I didn't disagree with who ever mentioned Jim Brown
and ONLY talked about Hutson and guys that played between 1933 and 1946 when blacks were banned.
I hope this clears up the confusion. I'm not flaming you at all, or race baiting just using facts to back up my argument. Big Jack pisses me off to no end and sometimes I let it carry into other conversion. If I came across as bitter or being a jerk, again I apologize.
