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 2021 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.
How do you replace a legend like Brett Favre?  You do that with a future legend like Aaron Rodgers.
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…
How good must Forrest Gregg have been when Vince Lombardi calls you the finest player he ever coached?
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.
Spending his entire professional career with the Green Bay Packers, Linebacker, Ray Nitschke was the anchor for the Green Bay defense for fifteen seasons.  
Willie Wood spent his entire career with the Green Bay Packers, and just to get there was a feat in itself.  Despite playing at high-profile USC, Wood went undrafted, likely due to being an African-American Quarterback at a time when they were not sought after in the NFL.  Wood wrote a letter to Packers’ Head Coach, Vince Lombardi to get a tryout,…
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.

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.  Lofton would enter the…
A true jack of all trades, Arnie Herber took a strange trip to football stardom.  Herber, a native of Green Bay who only played two years of college football was working as the clubhouse’s handyman and received a tryout from Curly Lambeau, who saw something in the kid, and boy was he right!
