Aaron, you just mentioned John Brockington so I have a story. I grew up in Stratford, Connecticut and as a teenager and college age kid parked cars at a restaurant/Motor Inn (The Mermaid Tavern and Stratford Motor Inn) about 20 miles from the Yale Bowl stadium which is where the NY football Giants played their home games while Yankee Stadium was being renovated and perhaps when Meadowlands stadium was being built. The visiting teams ate at the restaurant and stayed at the Motor Inn the night before the games. So as a 17ish year old saw Joe Namath's entrance in dramatic fashion in a pre season game, I think I recall the Redskins, etc., and then there were the Packers. The Packer players anyway were all dressed in matching green plaid sport jackets and green slacks all of which was the polyester material of the day, a wild look. Anyway, since the mid 60's I was a Packers fan and watched all the Packer players get off the bus and walk into the restaurant, etc., and then there was John Brockington. I'll just say as a 115 pound kid, John Brockington had the thickest and biggest thighs I had ever seen on human being in my life, perhaps until this day at least in person. OMG, I was in awe and speechless!

Great memory. I watched the 1973 playoff game vs the Redskins with my father. It was around Christmas. I loved to watch John Brockington play. Tough runner. My father was a printer. He brought me home a color action photo that his company was working on. That picture stayed in my room in NY City for years. Years later, well after my father had passed, I gave it to my son. Three or four years ago I attended a game up in Green Bay. I saw that Brockington and Willie Buchanan would be signing autographs in the Atrium at Lambeau Field. We brought the picture with us. Brockington and Buchanan couldn’t have been nicer. Upon seeing the photo, Brockington told us that the picture was to promote a book signing he did in the 70s.He signed the picture for us. The picture now with his autograph hangs in my son’s room. Passed from one Packer generation to the next

Aaron, I can see you mentioning Sterling Sharp as your all time favorite Packer player and I will agree he was a unique talent on the field.

I have two favorites and I will tell you why. First is Bart Starr who I would have to list at the top. He was a true field general and the winner several Championships including the first two Super Bowls in which he was selected as the game MVP. In addition to his superb on the field play, perhaps Bart was even more of an ambassador for the Packers and the NFL. I met him a couple of times and once spoke to him with my dad when I was youngster and he had just won another championship. He stood and talked to my dad and me for about 20 minutes, treating me with great respect and giving me his concentrated attention during that chat. Of course, he made a lifelong admirer.

My second favorite right behind Bart Starr is Reggie White. He was the most dominate defensive lineman I have ever seen play the game and deserves his place in the football Hall of Fame and having his name up on the wall of Lambeau Field with Bart and the other Packer greats. I never met nor spoke with Reggie, but I did witness his kindness after a practice when I was in the Lambeau parking lot. He was surrounded by about 15 young kids who wanted autographs and Reggie was pleading that he had to get home and the kids backed up this gentle giant against his Jeep and I saw Reggie White stand there until he had signed an autograph for every single kid. To me his on the filed domination and off the field demeanor and kindness makes him my favorite almost equal to Bart Starr.
