Madden NFL All-25: Guard Steve Hutchinson

To commemorate the 25th anniversary of Madden NFL, we’ve compiled the best players in Madden history with help from our EA SPORTS GameChangers.Today's reveal is guard Steve Hutchinson.

With former Seattle Seahawks teammate and 2005 NFL MVP Shaun Alexander on the cover of Madden NFL 07, guard Steve Hutchinson is the perfect choice to round out the offensive line on the Madden All-25 Team.

“Like teammate Walter Jones, Steve Hutchinson was one of the maulers up front for cover athlete Shaun Alexander. In Madden NFL 07 the offensive line was very powerful and Hutchinson made Alexander’s job easy.” - Shaun Mason

Hutchinson’s efforts earned him seven Pro Bowl appearances as well as seven All-Pro selections, earning him a spot on the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.

“Hutchinson was one of the biggest reasons the 'Run to Daylight' feature was such a success. Hutchinson laid people out with big blocks.” - Zfarls

“You could only appreciate Hutchinson if you played with the Seahawks. Not only would he open up huge holes, but there wasn’t much you could do about it when it was Shaun Alexander running through those holes. He also gave the QB so much time to throw, it made Matt Hasselbeck look like his old mentor, Brett Favre.” - Jordan of Madden
