    Who and why are your top five all time Packers players? Anyone who includes Anthony Dilweg should be banned, immediately! ;-)

    in no particular order,
    Brett Favre - I became a Packer fan when I was 11, in 1994. So, there ya go.
    Aaron Rodgers - Stud
    Sterling Sharpe - Could've been an all-time great
    Ahman Green - My family is all Cornhusker fans, so we were psyched to see him go to GB
    Charles Woodson - probably my all-time favorite football player. I liked him at Michigan. That one-handed sideline pick blew my young mind. Heisman. DPOY. Ageless. Dude's amazing.

    Oh, and Anthony Dilweg, of course.

    That's pretty damn close for me too, but for sure I put Donald Driver in there, and want a mention for John Jefferson, albeit short-lived.
    Chuck Cecil has to be mentioned as well. Nick Collins and LeRoy Butler too.

    But Reggie White is for sure in the top 5 for me too.... maybe #1.

    I really liked Robert Brooks as a kid. I would say Donald Diver is probably my favorite of all time, the guys smilin from ear to ear every time he's on the field. Besides him I'd have to say Clay Matthews and Jordy

    Hmm, Robert Brooks, Donald Driver, Aaron Rodgers, Don Majkowski and Jordy Nelson.

    Hard to pick just five. Really hard. I like Clay, Greg Jennings, Ahman Green and Dorsey Levens a lot, too. Deep down, I still like Brett, too, but I'm still ticked at how he handled his exodus from Green Bay.

    Hmm, I liked Reggie, Leroy, Paul Coffman and Lynn Dickey a lot, too.

    In the winter of 1966 I was stuck in Milwaukee, WI because of snow. I was on my way from Ft. Gordon, GA to visit my family in Menominee, MI before shipping out to Viet Nam. While talking to the ticket agent about when the airport would reopen and or when flights might start to come in a man leaned over my should. The man said he heard I was trying to get to Menominee, MI via Green Bay and wanted to know if I wanted a lift. Being in uniform, Army broke, I jumped at the chance because my father only had to drive to Green Bay. The man said he had a friend from Cherry Aviation flying down to pick him up and I could fly with them up to Green Bay.

    What a wonderfully flight for a 18 year old. We talked football since I played the same position in HS, about the Army, my family and life in general. Arriving in Green Bay he gave me his address and asked that I write when I got to Viet Nam to let him know how I was doing which I agreed to.

    Fast forward 4 months. I took the time to write him and told him what it was like, where I was stationed in VN and what unit I was with. About a month later I received a package from him. Inside was a personalized football to my unit from the 1966 Green Packers. This wasn't a production run because it had some additional notes on it besides the players / coaches autograph

    We wrote each other from time to time until his address was destroyed in an attack and I didn't know how to reach him back then.

    When I left VN 23 months + later the company commander presented me with the football. 44 years later I still have the football in case along with a copy of my stock certificate.

    My favorite Green Packer is BART STARR, a man I will never forget what he did for me, my fellow soldiers in VN and not to forget what he gave hundreds of thousands of Green Bay Packer fans over the years.

    My all time is Reggie White. I would not of become a fan of football or later the Green Bay Packers if it were not for him.

    Bart Starr is STILL the man, character, integrity, leader. Jim Taylor, Reggie White, Paul Hornung, Ray Nitchke. Just to name a few. So many great players. I'm old hence the older players.

    Naming the top 5 isn't easy. If I just go by the players since "71" (the year of my birth)In no particular order it would be Reggie White,Sterling Sharpe,Rodgers,CM3 & Favre. My next 5 would be DD,Jennings,Nelson,Woodson & Ahman Green.

    Jim Taylor is the nicest packer I have ever met.

    Don hutson is a favorite of mine.

    Reggie, while I disagreed with him as far as personal views go was also one of my favorites.

    Of the current packers of course DD.

    Bart Starr - Been through the mill in life and is still a class act.
    Reggie White - Great man all around.
    Dave Robinson - Gracious man let my boys hold his Super Bowl rings.
    Donald Driver - Proof positive a man can overcome his past.
    Vince Lombardi - (not a player) Great man who also was on the cutting edge of civil rights.

    Reggie White - also one of my favorite humans
    Don Hutson - One of footballs greatest ever. He was the Gretzski/Jordan of his day in that he dominated and rewrote the record book.
    Ray Nitchke - A great player with a great attitude, yet he was such a kind/easy going guy in his later years
    Bart Starr - another outstanding human and who was a leader of so many great championship teams
    Tough for #5 Can make a case for Herb Adderly, Jerry Kramer, Jim Taylor, Paul Hornung, and Willie Davis. Will go with Willie as he might be underrated of all the NFL greats.
