Four Packers are among the 17 charter members elected to the new Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio – Curly Lambeau, Johnny Blood, Cal Hubbard and Don Hutson.
Lambeau won six NFL championships as the team’s head coach, tying him with George Halas for the most ever, and he’s one of only six coaches in league history to win more than 200 regular-season games.
Blood, a big-play runner and receiver, was named to the NFL’s All-Decade team for the 1930s and played in four Packers championship squads (1929-31, ’36).
Hubbard was a massive two-way lineman at 6-2, 253, and is the only player who has been inducted into both the football and baseball halls of fame.Hutson, the forerunner to the modern receiver, held 19 NFL records when he retired and was a two-time league MVP (1941-42) and six-time all-pro. He led the league in pass receptions eight times and in scoring five times.
