ESPN asked Packers fans for their most memorable Packers play and Bart Starr's quarterback sneak to win the Ice Bowl was the overwhelming favorite.
Second place was Brett Favre's 54 yard TD pass to Andre Rison in Super Bowl XXXI and third place was Aaron Rodgers pass to Greg Jennings on a 3rd and 10 to seal a victory in Super Bowl XLV.
Rob Demovsky explains what made Starr's sneak a fan favorite:
What was most interesting in researching this project was that there was no consensus on the most memorable plays from Super Bowls XXXI and XLV. There was just as much support for Desmond Howard's 99-yard kickoff return for a touchdown that helped him win the Super Bowl XXXI MVP. Likewise in Super Bowl XLV, strong cases could be made for Nick Collins' interception return for a touchdown in the first quarter and Clay Matthews' forced fumble that thwarted a potential go-ahead drive by the Steelers in the fourth quarter.
Unlike Starr's sneak, no one play won Super Bowls XXXI or XVL.
And that is why Starr's play was so special.
