Hutson is tied with Polamalu on the all time INT list.

Could one imagine just how big of a star off the field Hudson (assuming his talents translated into today's game) would have been with the numbers he put up.

My gosh..
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

I thought a long time about mentioning Hudson with Willie. Decided to let it go since so many posters here are kids and don't even know who Wood is how would they know about Don's great defense?

Of course if one has not witnessed a player from times gone past doesn't mean they can't crack open a book or do a little research on something we call the internet. No they an only speak about something that happened in the last 6 weeks. Duh!

I can't speak to Hutson since I only know the stats. My guess is that if I had more info, though, he'd compete for #1.

I think part of the reason I was never as impressed as most are with Butler, Collins, and, especially, Sharper, is that I did get to see Willie Wood play.

To me it isn't even close. It's like the difference between Jerry Rice and Dwight Clark. Or between Jim Brown and Emmitt Smith. Or between Ray Nitschke and Jim Carter [who IMO was underrated]. Or Butkus and Urlacher. Or Herb Adderley and Deion Sanders.

Willie Wood.
