LG Hutchinson Makes the ESPN All-Decade Team

The Vikings have a player on the ESPN All-Decade team, as the Star Tribune Reports that left guard Steve Hutchinson has made the squad:

ESPN.com is picking an NFL all-decade team and Vikings left guard Steve Hutchinson was named to it.

Hutchinson, a six-time Pro Bowl selection, and Alan Faneca were the two offensive guards. According to this story, ESPN.com talked to coaches, players and scouts in putting together the team. It also used “statistics, impact on the player’s team, Super Bowl wins/appearances and Pro Bowl berths.”

ESPN said offensive guard was one of the toughest positions to pick. Hutchinson and Faneca got the nod over the likes of Will Shields and Larry Allen.

“Those guys set the tone,” Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith told the website about Hutchinson and Faneca.

Tackle Walter Jones, who played with Hutchinson in Seattle for five seasons and also made the all-decade team, said his former teammate deserved to be on the list: ”There has been great guard play, but I have to say Hutchinson wins a spot. He has been dominant for two teams. He was a great guy to play with.”
