Top 50 Green Bay Packers

This was really hard.

The Green Bay Packers have been around for nearly one hundred years and have won 13 Championships.  The city of Green Bay that has the lowest population by far of any major North American franchise, but it has one of the most storied histories of any sporting organization.

With this type of pedigree, how do you narrow down only 50 of the greatest from this franchise?

Very carefully!

Admittedly, we could have easily come up with another 50, and we may very well do that in the future, as the next 50 if put together could probably win a Super Bowl.

This list is up to the end of the 2015 regular season.

Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics and post-season accolades.
Brett Favre was not someone projected to break most of the NFL passing records when the Atlanta Falcons out of Southern Mississippi drafted him but apparently Green Bay (specifically Ron Wolf) did when they pulled the trigger on a trade to land one of the greatest gunslingers of all time.
Bart Starr may not be on the top of this list (though he almost was) but when you think of the Green Bay Packers and their great history, this is automatically the first name that comes to mind.
Inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1963, Don Hutson was a three NFL Champion who was a member of both the NFL 50th and 75th Anniversary Team.  Hutson, who was also a two time National Football League MVP also is thought of as the first true Wide Receiver in the game of Football.  As was expected in…
Spending his entire professional career with the Green Bay Packers, Linebacker, Ray Nitschke was the anchor for the Green Bay defense for fifteen seasons.  
How good must Forrest Gregg have been when Vince Lombardi calls you the finest player he ever coached?
Willie Wood was a Hall of Fame Defensive Back who spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers.  Wood was a three time NFL Champion and two time Super Bowl Champion (you will notice that trend on this list) and would lead the NFL in Interceptions in 1962.
Coming out of Grambling, Willie Davis joined the Green Bay Packers in 1960 and became the centerpiece of the Pack’s defensive line.  The number five has to be special to Davis, as he would win five NFL Championships, earn five Pro Bowls and was chosen for five First Team All Pros.  
One of the few players who won a Heisman Trophy and a National Football League MVP, Paul Hornung was a key member of the Packers dynasty of the 1960’s.  He was at his best in the early 60’s, which is where he received his two First Team All Pro Selections and in 1960 he would lead all rushers with 13…
Would there be a Green Bay Packers football team if it were not for Curly Lambeau?
The spark plug for the 1960’s Green Bay defense, Henry Jordan played Right Defensive Tackle for the Green Bay dynasty and rattled off five consecutive (1960-64) First Team All Pro Selections.  He would enter the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1995. 
A five time Champion with the Green Bay Packers (and a sixth with the Dallas Cowboys), Herb Adderley intercepted 39 passes and twice would lead the NFL in Interception Return Yards.  Adderley was a four time First Team All Pro and was also a star Kick Returner who produced over 3,000 Yards.  He would tally nine touchdowns overall, an incredible…
Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung in the same backfield!  My God!
How do you replace a legend like Brett Favre?  You do that with a future legend like Aaron Rodgers.
In the opinion of most people (including this website), the most egregious snub form the Pro Football Hall of Fame is Offensive Lineman, Jerry Kramer.  The question will always be asked in how is it that a five time Champion with five First Team All Pros isn’t in yet?  Especially considering the fact that he was a member of the…
Reggie White may have only played six seasons with the Green Bay Packers, but the impact he made by changing the culture there is undeniable.  White’s signing with the Packers told other big name free agents that this is a place worth playing for.

One of the most versatile players in Green Bay Packers history, Tony Canadeo did it all for the team.  A NFL Champion in 1944, Canadeo would become the third player in the NFL to rush for over 1,000 Yards, and the first Packer to do so.  He would play good defense, was their kick returner and occasionally was used at…
Twice leading the NFL in Yards/Reception, James Lofton was the Packers number one Wide Receiver for years, making the Pro Bowl seven of his nine years in Lambeau.  Lofton would exceed 1,100 Yards five times in Green Bay, and after he left the team he would become the first player in history to break 14,000 Yards.
Credited with inventing the “Lambeau Leap” (which alone qualifies him for any all-time great Green Bay Packers list) Leroy Butler was a career Green Bay Packer who was the first Defensive Back to join the 20/20 (Quarterbacks and Interceptions) club.  Butler would earn a Super Bowl Ring and along with his four First Team All Pro nods, he was also…
Jim Ringo played most of his Hall of Fame career with the Green Bay Packers and it was there that he started 126 of 131 games.  Ringo made seven of his ten Pro Bowls and all six of his First Team All Pros as a Green Bay Packer.
