    Fritsch only led the Packers in rushing TWO consecutive seasons. Thats why i didn't guess him, cause the info you posted about the player pictured was incorrect.
    Gotta get the info correct!
    (What do i expect from a Viking fan???) :lol: :wink: :lol:

    Vikes That is Packer Guard August "Mike" Michaelske - 1929-1935-1937.

    Packer full back #64 Ted Fritsch led the Packers in Rushing - 3 times: 1942- 1944 & 1945. Packer running back Tony Canadeo led the Packer in rushing in 1946.

    #3 Packer Hb Tony Canadeo, a Pro football Hall of Famer led the Packers in rushing 5 times-1943, 1946,1947.1948 and 1949. In 1949, Tony was the first Packer running back to gain over 1,000 yards in a season Canadeo gained 1.057 yards in 208 attempts for 5.1 yard average in a 12 game NFL season. It was a great accomplishment for Tony Canadeo.

    Correct on Mike Michaelske, PWT36. I figured that you would get all of these :thumbsup:

    What's with the stats discrepancy on Packers.com about Ted Fritsch 44-46 vs 42,44,45 as (highlighted in your quote)?
    Still 3 years, but just curious.
