Top 10 Packers of All Time: Last Week to Vote

This poll is to determine the top 10 Packers players of all-time.  Remember the criteria listed in this piece, and make sure to tell me why your number 1 Packer should hold the top spot.   

This offseason, I will be embarking on a series that attempts to examine (and rate) the careers of the top ten Green Bay Packer players of all -time.  This will be quite a difficult endeavor because of the vast amount of decades and eras that make up the history of the Green Bay Packers.  This list will be determined by the impact made on the football field, statistics, wins, and the impact made on the organization.

Next week we will narrow our list down to 25 finalists and you will name your top ten from that list.  Please remember to tell me why your number one Packer earned the top spot.   

Who will contribute to ranking the list from 1-10?  

  • The fans (The Cheesehead Audience and Packer Nation)
  • The media/alumni (Cheesehead TV contributors and other members of the media/hopefully Packers alumni)

The hope is to involve as many members of the Packers community in this process so that everyone can have their say.  

With that being said, I need two things from you the fans:

  1. I need your list of the Top 10 Packers of all-time.  Remember, this should be based on impact made on the football field, statistics, wins, and the impact made on the organization.
  2. I need you to tell me who you think the greatest Packer of all-time is/was and why you feel that way.  Please use the same criteria as well as your favorite moments of that player.  

I hope this will be a fun series that will highlight some of the most influential members of the Packers organization as well as unite Packer fans from all around the world!

I am excited to hear from all of you, Go Pack Go!

Remember, voting ends next week! Let your voice be heard!!!!!

Maybe the guy who started the franchise, accounted for almost half of the championships and for whom the stadium is named for where everyone else who came after him toiled at #1.

How soon they forget.

Lambeau and Hutson. Never saw them. Vince and Bart, obviously. Willie Davis....a great player and better man who was on the Executive Board. He is the only person with all four of our Super Bowl rings.

So that’s five. Nitschke. Favre. I think those seven are automatic. But we still don’t have White or Woodson. Or any non-player /coach. Vainisi? Harlan? Wolf? So I’d have to have a top dozen.

#1 - Brett Favre. He brought the packers back from irrelevancy. His ability to make you feel like you were celebrating with him after every crazy play he made brought attention back to Green Bay. His leadership and willing to play through any adversity physical or emotional made Green Bay a place other players wanted to come play at again. MVP level play while also flipping the ball back handed, under handed, while spinning or falling made him the most entertaining and effective football player I have ever watched.

#2 - Bart Starr. I didn’t get to watch him play, but his efficiency numbers, leadership, and championships, under Lombardi has given this franchise a history like no other. He is a huge factor in why there is still an NFL franchise in the tiny city of Green Bay.

#3 - Reggie White. The greatest defensive player of all time. Choosing Green Bay in free agency legitimized the Packers rebirth. Nuf said.

#4 - Aaron Rodgers. One of the greatest talents at QB the NFL has ever seen. The only reason he isn’t #1 is that there are 3 guys that in my opinion had larger impacts on the franchise at pivotal times in packer history. On the field talent, #1.

Now it gets harder for me. I didn’t see most of the players that are going to round out this list. Just the highlight reels and NFL films spotlights.

#5 - Ray Nitschke.

#6 - Paul Hornung.

#7 - Don Hutson.

#8 - Jimmy Tayor.

#9 - Curly Lambeau.

#10 - Leroy Butler. LAMBEAU LEAP BABY!

Jim Ringo is an interesting choice.
He was good no doubt but he wasn't around long after his agent tried to strong arm Lombardi.
I may be wrong but to my knowledge he was the first NFL player to have an agent.

I’m fine bumping Clay off for another player - Leroy?
He is all time team sack leader which I felt
was important

Woodson tough omission for me. Top 3 of my
favorite Packers all time but doesn’t have the

All Time Greatest Packers:
1: Bart Starr--He has been "Carrying The G" forever.
2: Don Hutson--Probably the best Receiver/End ever to play the game.
3: Reggie White--The Minister of Defense
4: Ray Nitschke-- Toughest LB of all time! My favorite Packer!
5: Jim Taylor-- The best RB on the team
6: Brett Favre--Never mind the end of career antics. Look at his gunslinging greatness. Got us back to the Super Bowl and won it.
7: Aaron Rodgers--The legend continues. We have been spoiled with greatness at QB for decades.
8: Charles Woodson--Probably the best football player ever! He did it all.
9: Herb Adderley--Tough, solid DB in the Glory Years. Then he went to Dallas.
10: Johnny "Blood" McNally--A Star in the formative years of the Packers and the NFL.
I did not pick Curly Lambeau or Vince Lombardi, or many other players in the Lambeau Ring of Honor, although I could have and they should be on this list, at the top..

The Packers have such a great history this is almost impossible.

1-Lombardi a certain magic still lingers in the air.
2- Lambeau- no Lambeau, no Packers
3- Starr- Leader of a great dynasty.
4-Favre- brought the Packers back
5- Hutson- Jerry Rice before Jerry Rice
6- White- made playing in GB cool again
7- Rodgers- still unfinished business
8- Lofton- If he played with Rodgers/Favre he’d be much higher on this list
9- Nitschke- Would you run in the middle of the field if you saw someone that looked like that? Didn’t think so.
10- Woodson- Master of disruption

I just want to point out, the author is clear this is players only list. Lombardi would obviously make any Packers list, however under these parameters he doesn’t qualify. Lambeau played for the original Packer teams before transitioning to coach. He certainly qualifies .

I get it - it’s weird leaving Lombardi off any Packers list.

We’ve had such an amazing history, tough list to compile!

My list does not include coaches or GMs. If we are supposed to include them, then obviously there would be a change or two.

The best player in Packers history is Don Hutson, who created modern football as it is today by almost single-handedly inventing the forward pass. Dominated the league for years. Also played safety and kicked extra points.

1. Don Hutson
2. Ray Nitschke
3. Forrest Gregg
4. Brett Favre
5. Bart Starr
6. Herb Adderley
7. Jim Taylor
8. Reggie White
9. Clarke Hinkle
10. Aaron Rodgers

You can take 10 players off of the Lombardi teams of the 60's. Football changed so much since then before and after. Lombardi himself made the players great. Didn't see many people picking Forrest Gregg, the best player Vince coached (in his own words). Also he made Kramer one on the best guards ever. Curly Lambeau started, played, coached a team that has lasted over a century!
1. Curly Lambeau
2. Forrest Gregg
3. Bart Starr
4. Brett Favre
5. Aaron Rodgers
6. Don Hudson
7. Reggie White
8. James Lofton

The author never said players only, he wrote Packers, not Players. He also included off the field organizational impact as a criteria. Read the original statement.

Tony Canadeo must be in the top 10. The second NFL player ever to gain 1000 yards in a season as a RB, he personified the Packers during an age when the team was not so competitive. His battles with the Bears are legendary. He was a member of the BOD for a very long time and was a trusted advisor to many of the Packer leaders including Vince Lombardi. Tony Canadeo was associated with he Packers for longer than any other man... ever.

Bart Starr - words cannot describe what Bart Starr brought to he GBP franchise. Class, dignity and a fighting spirit and will to win second to none. Player, coach, leader, icon.

Curly Lambeau - founder, leader, innovator, player, coach.

Vince Lombardi - ultimate leader, all-time greatest coach and motivator. Winner and Legend.

Don Hutson - His talent transcended the sport at the time of his play. Changed the way the game is played and led the team to multiple championships.

Brett Favre - Brought relevance to the GBP and led them out of the dark ages and near extinction. Led to Championship and multiple MVP awards.

Ray Nitschke - MLB on the NFL 50 yr team. GBP Deensive leader through glory years. The man won an MVP of a Championship game! One of the greatest ambassadors for the GBP franchise ever.

Paul Hornung - The heart and soul of the greatest Packer teams ever. His confidence and swagger fueled the pride of the greatest GBP teams. Bet on him being on this list!

Choose any 2 from a list of many greats to round out this list. The 8 above are absolute-must haves for any top 10 list.

Apologies for the length, it didn't feel this long when I was actually typing it out.

1. Vince Lombardi - Made the Packers the most dominant dynasty maybe ever, has the Superbowl trophy named after him, gota be first. Nuff said.

2. Curly Lambeau - Creator and coach who won more than any other, including several championships and the guy the most iconic stadium in the NFL is named after. Easy #2.

3. Don Hutson - Forget the QBs cause they're easy, Hutson was the most dominant receiver in the NFL history for decades and in my mind remains the single greatest player in Green Bay history. You don't lead the NFL in receiving touchdowns 9 times, receiving yards 7 times, and receptions 8 times in 11 seasons and not get this high. His 1942 season remains one of the most ridiculous performances by a receiver in NFL history. 74 receptions, 1211 yards, and 17 touchdowns in 11 games, IN 1942?!?!?!? Incredible.

4. Bart Starr - Now we can talk QBs, and no QB deserves it more than the guy with the greatest postseason winning percentage in NFL history, the highest postseason passer rating in NFL history (IN THE 60's NO LESS), and who held several QB records at his retirement. Not to mention the 5 championships and MVP selection.

5. Brett Favre - I mean, we all know the Gunslinger for a reason. 3 time MVP, lead the Packers back to relevancy, and maybe the most exciting QB to watch ever. Finishing as the leader in almost every passing stat also helps his case.

6. Ray Nitschke - Argument could be made that a certain other Green Bay defender deserves to be here in his place, but I'll get to him in a minute. Nitschke remains in my mind the greatest defensive player in team history, as a 7 time All Pro and 5 time NFL Champ. Plus the story of the coaching tower falling on him and driving a spike through his helmet and him being totally fine is pure awesome.

7. Ron Wolf - You can't talk about guys like Brett Favre and Reggie White without talking about the guy who ran the team and brought them in. Trading a first round pick for a guy who had been a backup, had thrown all of 4 passes the year before, and completed 2 of those 4 to the other team, was BALLSY to say the least. But bringing in him, and signing White in free agency a few years later were huge. This not only was a huge singular player signing, but also helping get rid of the idea that Green Bay was a hostile city for African American players. Wolf laid the foundation for Green Bay's current run of success.

8. Aaron Rodgers - I mean, he's gona have his number retired just like all these other guys, and in my eyes he's the best pure QB the Packers have ever had. Bringing in another Lombardi trophy, plus 2 MVP awards, deserves recognition, and he'll get his just dues in the Hall of Fame someday.

9. Reggie White - You could argue he deserves to be much higher on this list, but he played fewer years in Green Bay than in Philly, even though he remained a beast on the field. Guy broke open free agency when he signed with the Packers and was one half of the offensive/defensive gusto that brought Green Bay out of NFL Siberia.

10. Tony Canadeo - The last player on my list is also the last player remaining from the retired numbers list. It can be hard to judge Canadeo because of the era he played in, but he's a Pro Football Hall of Famer, actually left Green Bay for a few years to serve in World War II (LEGEND), and remained a color analyst for the team and a member of the executive committee for years. He was a Green Bay Packer through and through, and did it longer than anyone else.

"This offseason, I will be embarking on a series that attempts to examine (and rate) the careers of the top ten Green Bay Packer PLAYERS of all -time."

There is some confusion on whether this list is player only or any member of the organization. I think it should be everybody and have compiled my list as such. Without a doubt, number one is Curly Lambeau. His impact on the organization is only rivaled in the NFL by Halas's impact on the Bears. (In fact, those 2, along with Pete Rozelle, are probably the most important people in NFL history.)

1. Lambeau
2. Lombardi - the franchise still draws energy from his enduring legacy.
3. Starr - class, professionalism, competitiveness. I met him minutes after he played his
last game, and that left an enduring mark on me. Such a gentleman.
4. Favre - brought back the excitement and winning attitude to Titletown
5. Hutson - he's never mentioned in the same breath with Jerry Rice, but should be
6. Rodgers - has the talent to be higher on this list

2. Lombardi - the franchise still draws energy from his enduring legacy and culture of winning.
3. Starr - class, professionalism, competitiveness. I met him minutes after he played his
last game, and that left an enduring mark on me. Such a gentleman.
4. Favre - brought back the excitement and winning attitude to Titletown
5. Hutson - he's never mentioned in the same breath with Jerry Rice, but should be
6. Rodgers - has the talent to be higher on this list
7. Reggie White - transformed the team. Brought in a contagious energy. (Hmmm...sounds like what a certain #55 is
starting to do)
8. Canadeo
9. Lofton
10. JimTaylor

Pains me to leave Holmgren off this list; he certainly deserves an honorable mention.

I lived through the Glory Years (60's) and also the Gory Years (50's, 70's & 80's) so I'm afraid men like Lambeau, Hutson & Canadeo were a little before my time although I recognize their contributions to the Packers.

That said, from a purely significant contribution standpoint during my fandom my opinion would be Vince Lombardi (he brought winning back to Green Bay), Reggie White (he made Green Bay relevant again), Brett Favre (probably the greatest football passer I've ever seen), Bart Starr (such a great player and gentleman), Ron Wolf his (player decisions were the stuff of legends) and Mike Holmgren (just look at his record in Green Bay and the list of coordinators & assistant coaches he assembled). After that I'd vote for many of the same people others have mentioned here.

PRELIMINARY LIST IN ORDER OF IMPACT AND IMPORTANCE
***
(1) Bart Starr, the five-star field general in Packers history, with five championships in the Golden Age of the Lombardi Era -- a paragon of high character, strategic mastery, and plenty of unsuspected talent.
(2) Curly Lambeau, without whom there would be no Green Bay Packers.
(3) Don Hutson, transcending the eras of football.
(4) Ray Nitschke, the leading force of ferocity in the legendary defense of the Lombardi Era.
(5) Paul Hornung, the great all-around runner, catcher, passer, kicker -- with a verve that lifted his teammates.
(6) Jimmy Taylor, the epitome of toughness running over defenders for as much as 1,800 yards in a season.
(7) Herb Adderley, the supreme athletic cornerback of style and class and consistency and big plays, who always remained a Packer at heart.
(8) Forrest Gregg, model lineman esteemed by Lombardi as a football player par excellence.
(9) Reggie White, man of physical prowess and powerful presence, who picked Green Bay when it was considered Siberia, and against all odds, willed the Pack Back.
(10) Brett Favre, the dashing, daring redneck who brought swagger and toughness to the offense along with towering talent, rejuvenating the Packers with three-straight MVPs and the first Super Bowl victory since Lombardi.
***
Above all, it is Vince Lombardi stands alone as the legendary symbol of the Green Bay Packers -- the quest for excellence with personal integrity. He was a great motivator of diverse personalities from various backgrounds regardless of race.
It was Lombardi who forged the Packers of the Sixties into what sportswriter Dick Schapp called the greatest team of all time -- not necessarily the most talented, or most successful, but the best of a group of individuals coming together to realize the fullness of their common potential.
Lombardi was flawed, but he loved his men; and love covers a multitude of sins.
Most of all it is Vince Lombardi who makes me proud to bean enthusiastic fan of a team in the Green Bay Packers that transcends sports and is a prominent part of the historic greatness of America. Yet he is stoutly supported by a multitude of other Packers before and since -- from 1920 unto 2020 -- who deserve to be remembered and appreciated in their own persons.
How great it is to be a fan of the Packers, a tiny town that has risen again and again as Titletown. Fans are essential in the essence of a team. Much of the credit for the lasting lore of the Packers belongs to numerous people of Wisconsin, and places far beyond -- average Americans of humility and hard work. faith and family, loyalty and love.
It is the intangibles that elevate talent to transcendence. To tap into the richness of our heritage as the Green Bay Packers is to continue the glory into the future.

Hi, 13TimeChamps, according to my limited understanding, Lombardi had a terrible temper that may have been extreme even for a pro football coach.
He was also intense in driving his players to excellence, a good thing that can get out of control to the point of wearing on guys, discouraging them, and eventually leading to mutiny.
If Lombardi hadn't so quickly turned the Packers into a winning team, I wonder if he would have lost some of his top players.
However, the key to Lombardi, his redeeming quality, was indeed love. He cared about his players as people. He treated them as individuals, using different tactics with different temperaments.
The love that Lombardi showed for his players was reciprocated in a way that not only inspired performance on the field, but resulted in lifelong devotion.
Early on, a young Jerry Kramer -- who seems to have been somewhat of goof off -- was so devastated by Lombardi in a practice that he sat alone in front of his locker contemplating quitting. Then, unexpectedly, Lombardi sat next to Kramer, and told him he could become one of the best guards in the league, in such a way that Kramer was transformed into a kind of ecstasy.
Perhaps Lombardi, having cooled down, realized he had gone too far, and set about making a correction. It seems he was just as intense in praising his players as in scolding them -- and his sincere love did indeed cover a multitude of sins.
Herb Adderley once said he loved his own father, but didn't think about him every day; he thought about Lombardi every day, apparently with profound affection.
***
Another matter was that Lombardi's intensity was often hard on his family, it seems, with Lombardi being both distant, because of his focus on football, and overly harsh in his demands.
I think some fathers don't realize that ways that are successful at work may be a dismal failure at home.
Again, what seems to have redeemed Lombardi was earnest and ardent love for his wife, his son, and his daughter. On balance, the suffering he caused was overcome by the blessings he bestowed.
***
I wonder if Lombardi's mercurial mood swings are an indication of bi-polar illness. I wonder if much of his intensity was in a great struggle to gain more control his moods and impatience.
I could be way off about Lombardi, who seems complex. He went to mass daily. Bart Starr said humorously that he really needed to.
Yet. I think Lombardi knew that his church, his religion, was not a place for proud boasting, but about humble repentance. Didn't he stress as a coach the importance, even the majesty, of getting up after each falling down?
For Lombardi, Jesus was his coach, and he submitted with his own obedience, the discipline of a disciple -- allowing for his temper to be gradually toned down, and his shining warmth to come through the clouds ever more brightly.
Personally, I don't know if I could have withstood Lombardi all that well as a player. However, as a fan who barely knew anything about the man when at age 8, in 1970, I heard on the car radio say that he had died, I've truly grown in love for him over the next 50 years.
It seems a coach like Lombardi, and a team like his Packers, do truly transcend sports to become a part of American history, to be admired and emulated.

Interesting take. It was well known Lombardi was a demanding taskmaster that demanded excellence in his players. Not sure how you see that as sinful though. Especially considering he was probably the most loved and respected coach (from his players) of any coach in any sport in my lifetime. I've been following the Pack since around 1962.

As far as him treating his family poorly, I'll be honest, I've never heard that before. Not saying it didn't happen, just first time I've heard that. Although referring to him as a "dismal failure" as a father is a bit much.

Anyway, thanks for the clarification. I appreciate it.

I could be way wrong, 13TimeChamps, and am glad for other information, impressions, and opinions.
To further clarify, I didn't mean to say that Lombardi was a "dismal failure" as a father in general, but that some of his approaches with the Packers that were largely successful may not have translated well if applied at home.
There was a two-part special on Lombardi on the NFL Channel in 2013 for the 100th anniversary of his birthday; also a series on Super Bowl champions on the same channel had two excellent episodes on the Packers teams of 1966 and 1967.
Overall, I've been an eager learner about the Packers of the Lombardi Era over the decades, although I don't claim to be an expert.
I've given a good measure of thought to understanding Lombardi, but some of my takes are somewhat speculative. I'm sincerely trying to get his story right, though, as much as possible.

Read "When Pride Still Mattered" the Lombardi biography by David Maranis. It is one the best biographies that I have ever read about anyone, whether a sports, historical or political figure. There are many Lombardi biographies out there and I think that I have read them all, but "When Pride Still Mattered" is by far the best of them all. I have also read numerous biographies of many of Lombardi's players which give their personal impressions of Lombardi. But Maranis' book would be my recommended starting point. Thanks, Since '61

Top 10 Packers players of all time:

1. Don Hutson - greatest WR of his era and he revolutionized the position
2. Paul Hornung - The Golden Boy and leader of Lombardi's offense until 1966. Paul could run, pass, receive, block like a guard, kick FGs and PATs, and kickoff. He was a true football player.
3. Ray Nitschke - unquestioned leader of Lombardi's defense on the field. Led the Packers defense to 5 World Championships in 7 seasons including 3 in a row and the first 2 SBs. Played every down and could defend the run, the pass and blitz effectively. Member of the NFL All-time first 50 years team.
4. Bart Starr - went from a 17 th round draft pick to Lombardi's coach on the field. Masterful play caller, very rarely made mistakes or bad decisions with the football. Brilliant clutch player under pressure.
5. Herb Adderley - remains to be the best man to man CB I have ever seen. Unlike most cover corners Adderley was a fierce tackler against RBs or WRs. He had a great knack for the big play at the critical time at least until opposing QBs stopped throwing to his side of the field.
6. Forrest Gregg - Vince Lombardi said "Forrest Gregg is quite simply the best football player I have ever coached". That is good enough for me.
7. Brett Favre - made the Packers relevant again after 20+ seasons in the NFL wilderness. Great, accurate arm, toughest QB ever with the streak to prove it. Gave the team everything he had while he was on the field. Possibly the greatest player the Packers have ever had regardless of position. Held every major record for an NFL QB when he retired.
8. Aaron Rodgers - the most talented QB I have ever seen. His mobility and his accuracy while throwing on the run separates him from every QB who played previous to his career. Only recently a few of the younger QBs (e.g., Mahomes) are showing an ability to play as well on the run. Has changed the Qb position in a way that we have not seen since John Unitas created the modern QB position. Great arm, accuracy and great decision making. Still wins games with his arm, legs and decision making. The Packers go as far as Rodgers takes them.
9. Jim Taylor - best RB the Packers have ever had. Devasting runner and blocker. Loved to hit people. One of the best tough, short yardage runners of all time. Rarely fumbled.
10. Dave Robinson - became the prototype for the modern OLB position. Great tackler, good in coverage and a very smart player. Saved the 1966 NFL championship game against the Cowboys with his goal line play against Don Meredith's rollout forcing a game clinching interception. A stalwart on Lombardi's defense from 1963. An NFL HOFer and one of the best to ever play his position.

Honorable mention: Reggie White, I did not include Reggie in my top 10 because he only played 6 seasons in Green Bay. Everyone else on my list played either their entire career with the Packers or 10+ seasons. Reggie was one of the greatest defensive players of all time and could take over a game like few players have ever been able to do. I wish that he had spent more time with the Packers but I will always be grateful that he came to Green Bay.
Charles Woodson: another all time great defensive player just not sure who I could swap him out for of my top 10.

Non-players: Curly Lambeau - team founder, player and coach.
Vince Lombardi: The Greatest NFL coach of all time, his Packer team remains the benchmark against which all other teams are measured and he is the rock upon which the current NFL is built. His name is on the Super Bowl Trophy which is presented to the league champion for excellence during the NFL season. Not much more I can add.

Go Pack Go! Thanks, Since '61

Good stuff, Since'61.
I struggled with having to leave guys off my list (which, however, is preliminary) -- including Dave Robinson, Jerry Kramer, and Henry Jordan.
Then there's others like McNally, Herber, Canadeo, Dillon and Ringo, who I am less familiar with.
It seems almost impossible to leave off Aaron Rodgers, which I did, at least for now.
Also, I looked up the recently departed Willie Wood on Wikipedia last night. Wow!
A guy who is twentieth on the Packers list of all-time greats could possibly be in the top five on other teams.
What a great dilemma to have as fans!

It's always tough to get to a top 10 best with a team history like the Packers have. Personally if I was down to Adderley and Robinson I would choose Adderley.

My approach is to first try to identify the immortal players. To me an immortal player or coach is someone who sports/football people (not just Packers fans) will still be discussing and/or writing books about 50 years and plus beyond their playing career. Vince Lombardi is a perfect example of an immortal coach. Bart Starr, Nitschke, Reggie White and Brett Favre are immortal players. Aaron Rodgers could be an immortal player, we'll see how his career ends.

Regardless, the other players while all great players, even HOF players will probably always be remembered/discussed primarily by packers fans into the distant future. Players like Jerry Kramer, Willie Wood, Dave Robinson, Willie Davis, Henry Jordan, Clay Matthews, and many others fall into that category. It's often a fine line and fans and sports writers will always debate who belongs among the greatest of the great whether it is for all time or for a particular team. There is no definitive list but it is always good to see what are fellow fans are thinking. Thanks, Since '61

1. Don Hutson. He was one of the inventors of the modern passing game. A quick look at his career
- Hutson still holds 6 NFL receiving records
- Hutson's single season record of 17 touchdown receptions in 1942 stood for 42 years
- His record 99 touchdown receptions stood for 44 years
- He did not miss a game in his 11 year career
- 3× NFL champion (1936, 1939, 1944)
- 4× NFL All-Star (1939–1942)
- 8× First-team All-Pro (1938–1945)
- 2× NFL Most Valuable Player (1941, 1942)
- 8× NFL receptions leader (1936, 1937, 1939, 1941–1945)
- 7× NFL receiving yards leader (1936, 1938, 1939, 1941–1944)
- 9× NFL receiving touchdowns leader (1935–1938, 1940–1944)
- NFL interceptions leader (1940)
- NFL 75th Anniversary All-Time Team
- NFL 100th Anniversary All-Time Team
- NFL 1930s All-Decade Team
He is a player who should be included in any discussion of who is the NFL's GOAT

2. Bart Starr - Most people are too young to have seen him play except in highlight clips. They've grown up watching Brett and Aaron. As a result Starr is underrated.
6 NFL championship appearances, 5 NFL championships. He was the leader of perhaps the greatest dynasty in NFL history. While Lombardi's Packers where famous for their running game Bart Starr was the NFL passer rating leader 5 times in the 1960's. He was a master of the hard count. The last play of the Ice Bowl. NFL MVP, Twice Super Bowl MVP. On the field and off he was a class act who epitomized what the Packers were all about.

3. Jimmy Taylor - He was a punishing runner who looked for defenders to run over. Six time all pro. All decade team. 1962 MVP and rushing leader. Most of his career he was the number two back in the league behind Jim Brown.

4. Brett Favre
5. Aaron Rodgers
6. Reggie White
7. Ray Nitschke - Until the arrival of Reggie White #66 was the most popular defensive players jersey in Wisconsin
8. Wille Davis
9. Herb Adderly

Players alone, the list has to start with Bart His discipline and character enabled him to lead men to victory in very difficult spots. Like Rodgers, he was very careful with the ball, especially in big games. Bart never choked it up in the playoffs. He got the job done.

Nitschske, of course. And from that team, you have to include Willie Davis. And then nobody until Favre. Reggie and Woody. Hutson, who nobody saw but we can see the yards and TDS he put up.

3) Brett Favre - The Iron man, the kid that brought GB back to relevance

4) Don Hudson - one of the greatest WR of all time

5) Ray Nitschke - one of the greatest linebackers of all time.

6) Leroy Butler - I am surprised at the lack of recognition. Was a Hybrid S/LB before their was such a thing. Lambeau Leaper, and an amazing story. (wheelchairs and leg braces to the NFL)

7) James Lofton - only second to Hudson, Lofton was the one of the greats.

8) Jim Taylor - One of the greatest RB of all time

9) Sterling Sharpe - Might have been the best, but his career was cut short

10) Aaron Rodgers - Amazing QB, only #10 because his career is not over yet, too soon to judge

Honorable
Reggie White and Charles Woodson. Both these guys were some of the greatest football players to ever play for GB, but they played less than half their careers with the Packers. Had they been around longer They would certainly be on my list.

Hard to believe Favre + Reggie White only produced 1 damn ring.

1 Vince Lombardi
2 Curly Lambeau(started the team)
3 Ron Wolf(there would be no revitalization in the 90's)
4 Bart Starr
5 Brett Favre
6 Aaron Rodgers
7 Don Hutson
8 Reggie White
9 Ray Nitschke
10 Bob Harlan(Hired Ron Wolf, oversaw the renovation of Lambeau Field that has secured the financial future of the Packers)

1. Vince Lombardi
He built the Packers into one of the greatest dynasties at the right time. TV was starting to expand the fan base of the NFL in the late 50's/early 60's right when he made the Packers into one of the greatest dynasties the NFL has seen. I think if you ask a lot of Packers fans outside of WI why they're Packers fans you can trace it to their parents or grandparents becoming Packers fans during the Lombardi years. The championship trophy is named after him.
