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 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 2020 regular season.

Note: Football lists are based on an amalgamation of tenure, traditional statistics, advanced statistics, playoff statistics, and post-season accolades.

Sandwiched between his two stays as an Oakland Raider, future Hall of Fame Defensive Back, Charles Woodson gave the Green Bay Packers seven good years.  Woodson would help the Packers win Super Bowl XLV and was a two time First Team All Pro as a Packer.  In those two years, he would lead the NFL in Interceptions.
Fred “Fuzzy” Thurston is one of the few players to have six championships in the National Football League, winning an additional title in Baltimore along with the five he captured as a Packer.  The native of Wisconsin would be named a First Team All Pro in 1961.
The move to Center paid dividends for both Frank Winters and the Green Bay Packers, who they signed after six uneventful seasons in Cleveland, New York (G) and Cleveland.  Winters would start 141 games for the Packers and would make the 1996 Pro Bowl roster.  This would prove to be a pretty good career for a player who was nicknamed “Old…

While John Anderson may never made the Pro Bowl, he was one of the most consistent players of his day and was also thought of as one of the most complete.  Anderson would three times be named the Packers Defensive Player of the Year and the Pro Football Hall of Fame named him to the Second Team of the 1980’s.
John Brockington made an immediate impact with the Green Bay Packers winning the Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.  Brockington’s first three seasons saw him rush for over 1,000 Yards but his powerful style caught up to him and his next three years saw a decline in his production.  Still, he had over 6,000 Yards from Scrimmage for the Packers…

Arriving to Green Bay in 1965, Carroll Dale would help the Packers immediately as the team would win the next three titles, the 1965 NFL Championship and Super Bowls I & II.  Dale would be a three time Pro Bowl selection (1968-1970) and had 5,422 Receiving Yards as a Packer.
Lynn Dickey was never a Pro Bowl selection however he was an effective starting Quarterback for the Green Bay Packer for nine seasons.  Dickey was not surrounded with the best talent around him but he did manage to throw for the most yards and touchdowns in 1983 and for 21,369 Yards overall.
Antonio Freeman caught 431 regular season passes for the Green Bay Packers but he will be forever known for one specific post season catch, an 81 yard reception from Brett Favre in the Super Bowl.  Freeman would be a favorite target of Favre’s and was the leader in Yards Receiving in 1998.
