The Top-Ten Green Bay Packers of All-Time (Voted on by the Fans!)

The fans have spoken and here is your top-ten Green Bay Packers players of all-time. 

After a month of voting and debate, you the fans have spoken and named your top-ten Green Bay Packers players of all-time!  

Here is a look at how the voting was determined: Each top-ten list submitted was graded upon your top four selections.  A first-place vote received 7 fan points, A second-place vote received 4 fan points, A third-place vote received 2 fan points, and a fourth-place vote received 1 fan point.  A total of 15 players received fan points.

The list was pretty good for a blind vote but some very incredible Packers were left off the list.  Those players will surely be spoken for when I give you my top-ten Packers (Players) of all-time next week!

Here are your Top Ten Packers Players of All-Time:

  1. Bart Starr (155 Fan Points)
  2. Don Hutson (82 Fan Points)
  3. Earl "Curly" Lambeau (78 Fan Points)
  4. Brett Favre (68 Fan Points)
  5. Reggie White (22 Fan Points)
  6. Ray Nitschke (19 Fan Points)
  7. Aaron Rodgers (10 Fan Points)
  8. Paul Hornung (9 Fan Points)
  9. Forrest Gregg (8 Fan Points)
  10. Arnie Herber/ Tony Canadeo (7 Fan Points)

Other Packers Receiving Votes: Jim Taylor (4 Fan Points), Willie Davis (2 Fan Points), Willie Wood (1 Fan Point), Herb Adderly (1 Fan Point)

It is hard to come to a general consensus when we have 70+ different voters from different Packer eras; but overall, I'd say you all did a pretty good job.  As always, I will set the record straight next week when I give you my top-ten Packers players of all-time.

These sort of lists are stupid!

You're comparing apples to oranges, different players from different eras and younger fans have never seen some players yet are making judgements.

I beg to differ. What this list does is shine a light on the greatest professional sports franchise of all time. How many teams can boast of this many players that make it so hard to chose 10? The Pack has a lot of great apples and oranges.

Interesting list, the only disagreement I would have would be having Favre ahead of Rodgers. It is difficult for me to have an eventual Minnesota Viking that high, as the criteria is "greatest Packer." No LeRoy Butler eh? No Jim Taylor? Herb Adderly? Sterling Sharpe? Charles Woodson? They must be close behind.

Get over it , that girlfriend that later dated your friend did you a favor. LOL However, I have to criticize Hornung over Taylor. I guess I'm partial to muddied lunch pail players over the Golden Boy. Let's not forget that Taylor caught 225 passes in ten seasons.

There's definitely an argument to be made, but there's also these few things going in Hornung's favor:

-He was an effective passer out of the option as well as a good runner with a nose for the end zone.
-He was also the leading scorer in the league for multiple years including having the single season record for 40 years.
-He was a very good blocker who helped clear the way for Taylor on many of the outside runs.

I'm good with either, but don't dismiss Hornung's work out of hand.

The only one on that list that I met in person was Bart Starr and he was so kind and unassuming to a kid. He spoke with my dad and mostly me for about 20 minutes. Of course I instantly became a Bart Starr fan for the rest of my life. It would be so easy for a super star like that to be rude or indifferent with essentially no repercussions, but Mr. Starr was just the opposite. It's obvious that his kindness and talent is known to many on this website as well.

I’m surprised about Curly Lambeau. I’m not very sure about how good of a player he actually was. Founder, yes, coach yes. But a player?

I would switch out Lambeau and add in Jim Taylor.

I guess I was the only one to vote Herb Adderly. Also a surprise.

Happy Easter and everyone stay well. Thanks, Since ‘61

Agree with you about Adderly. Maybe just never escaped that era, but names like Hawg Hanner, Fuzzy Thurston, Henry Jordan, Willie Wood, etc. seemed bigger than life.

This was a fun list and with all these type lists you will find it hard to find the top ten without some very deserving players being left off. For those who are surprised about Favre over Rodgers, you must not have watched the Pack through the 70s & 80s and remember how much our becoming a great franchise again was due to him(among others of course). And he is the only NFL player to win three MVPs in a row. I Iove Rodgers but during Favre’s first ten years he was so much fun to watch. Both deserve to be on the list. As far as Bart being number one, I watched every game he played in, that was broadcast, from the 61 championship until he retired and I am not ashamed to say i cried the day he died

The question did not say the the best players but the top 10 Packers. Maybe fans thought Packers in any copacity so up for interpretation I guess. So I can see why Lambeau made the list. Without him are the Packers here now? Harlan and Wolf were important too. Maybe it should have said players only. Lambeau probably would not be on it. Just a thought. Happy Easter and Go Pack GO!

It did say players only, but there was still confusion. Lambeau was part of the loophole because he did play for the team. However, no one mentioned how he tried to move the team out of Greenbay once upon a time...

I agree with most of this list, including the 3 QBs.

I agree with someone else who mentioned Woodson. He was so great for us for a few years, including the Super Bowl season and he won an NFL Defensive Player of the Year, in the Modern Era.

And to the guy who said "these sort of lists are stupid": Umm, no, but taking the time to click in and comment that they're stupid, well, that in & of itself, actually seems stupid.

If you consider which player had the most overall impact on the Pack as we know it, hands down its Lambeau whose initiative at its founding & his perseverance for 30 yrs kept the Pack alive while all the other small town teams (i.e. Frankfort Yellowjackets & Providence Steamrollers) went by the way side. He's the only man or player who we can truly say 'if that there would be no Packers today except for ____"

I must disagree with you here.

While there were teams in several cities that are small by current NFL standards (Duluth, Evansville, Hammond, Dayton, Portsmouth, Canton, Muncie, Decatur, Racine, ...), Frankford was not one of them. The Frankford Yellow Jackets played in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia, which was the third-largest city in the US from 1890 through 1950, and is still in the top 10.

Pretty Good list. No list is going to be perfect in all eyes. All of those mentioned are definitely stand outs.

My biggest complaint would be no Leroy Butler. Not even an honorable mention? No wonder he has been passed over by the HOF when Packer fans do not even consider how good he was. Packer for life, never played for anyone else. Defensive Coordinators game planned around Butler because he was so effective. Its hard to overlook his Lambeau Leap that is Iconic in all of football. I really feel he should be a very least honorable mention, if not in the top 10.

I am OK with Reggie on the list, but I personally discount him because he spent most of career with Eagles and others. Great player and man no doubt, But I would feel different if most of his time was in GB. I feel the same about Charles Woodson. Great, but only a part time Packer.

Butler was a finalist, just didn’t get enough fan votes. His peak four seasons were incredible. The Packers have had some incredible members of their secondaries over the years.

Between those who “made the list” and those who did not, like Dave Robinson, Charles Woodson, Leroy Butler, and Sterling Sharpe, it illustrates how many REALLY GOOD football players the Packers have had over the decades!

folks, great topic. No one is "wrong". as to modern day receivers, it's awfully close between Sharpe & Lofton (Lofton slight edge as HOF, but Sharpe deserves to be); when you consider linemen, Gregg yes, Ringo, Davis & Kramer deserve HM. Kramer finally HOF!! Butler & Sterling are snubs. If i had to pick between Butler & Woodson though, i'll take Woody!
