Don Hutson

Green Bay Packers football player Don Hutson. The original (somewhat) wacky wideout was Don Hutson, by far the best receiver of the NFL's Paleozoic Era. His 488 receptions in an 11-season career that ended in 1945 were 200 more than anyone else in that era and he invented routes that are still used today, including the out-and-up. But he wasn't your conventional football player. (AP Photo/Robert Walsh)
