4. Forrest Gregg
How good must Forrest Gregg have been when Vince Lombardi calls you the finest player he ever coached?
The anchor of the Packers’ Offensive Line that expertly protected Bart Starr, Forrest Gregg was one the game’s true iron men.  Making nine Pro Bowls and six First Team All-Pros, Gregg started 188 consecutive games (187 with Green Bay), which was a record at the time.  He is a five-time Champion with the Green Bay Packers and added one more with the Dallas Cowboys in his final year in the NFL.
