Nice opening lineup :) All-time teams are like walking into a Mercedes dealership. Can't go wrong with any choice!

The challenge comes with our own team. Imagine we had to play games against other teams' all-time teams, like a video game. Here's my skill positions, with each understood to be in their "prime" physical condition:

QB Drew Brees
RB1 Deuce McAllister
WR1: Marques Colston
TE: Henry Childs

Yeah, the TE might surprise the younger analytics crowd but Childs was the most reliable pass catcher Archie had back in the day outside of Abramowicz.
You had me until Mercedes. ??
And I love the line up aside from not ever having heard of Childs...but that is very homerific my friend.
Love Dulymus but he’s not the best ever.
Heck it’s your team tho right?

Drew Brees (homerific but it’s close enough in my mind to justify going with whom I love)

Barry Sanders
Randy Moss (would be Rice on talent but would rather lose than have a Niner)
Shannon Sharpe

Barry Sanders has to be my favorite running back but I am leaning toward putting Gayle Sayers. His running skill was way beyond ahead of his time. Reggie Bush in college reminds me so much of Gayle Sayers. He is one guy that can spark an offense at any given time. He was way beyond my time but looking at his highlights, there are very few that can run like him.

So someone face palmed my choices. I'm guessing that has to do with Don Hutson, which would only show that person knows little to nothing about Hutson.

Hutson played from 1935-1945, 11 seasons. He was an obvious choice to be a charter member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963. Here's a few of the amazing facts about his career:

Twenty percent of all his receptions were touchdowns. He scored a total of 105 touchdowns in just 117 games (counting playoff games, 99 TDs in the regular season). The Packers won three NFL championships (1936, `39 and '44). He retired with 19 NFL records, was named to the all-pro team in 8 of his 11 seasons and was NFL MVP in 1941 and '42.

He led the NFL in touchdowns eight times. More than 50 years later, nobody else has led the league more than three times.

He also led the league in catches a record eight times, including 1942, when he had a then-astonishing 74 receptions. His nearest rival caught 27 passes that season.

In nine seasons he was the top touchdown receiver in the league (Rice is second all-time with six). Amazingly, not only is Hutson listed first for most consecutive years (five) leading the NFL in touchdown catches, he also is second with four.

Hutson finished his career with 99 touchdown receptions, an astounding 62 TDs ahead of his closest competitor. Steve Largent finally broke Hutson's record 44 years later in 1989. It was Largent's 14th year in the NFL when he broke the record Hutson had set in 11 seasons. Also, Hutson's NFL seasons were only 10 to 12 games long while Largent began his career in 14 game seasons that later expanded to the current 16 game seasons.

Hutson led the NFL in the three major receiving statistics (receptions, yardage, and touchdowns) 24 out of 33 times. He finished in the top three 32 times out of those 33 (the 33rd was when he was 6th in receptions his rookie season). He led the league in either receptions, yards, or touchdowns every single season of his career.

He won the receiving Triple Crown five times, including four consecutive seasons (1941-1944). He caught a touchdown on 20 percent of his receptions, compared to 13 percent for Jerry Rice, who is second in that category.

Don Hutson is the only wide receiver in NFL history to win the Most Valuable Player award, which he did twice (1941 and 1942).


Now if you were face palming Jim Brown, the single best football player of all time, I have no words for the kind of help you need in NFL history education.
