    What's your favorite # in football?
    What # has the best players usually, the most Hall of Famers?

    For QBs, you have #12 (Bradshaw, Staubach, Brady, Rodgers, Kelly), #8 (Young, Aikman), #7 (Elway), #13 (Marino, Warner).... and a few oddballs like #4 (Farve), #9 (Brees), #18 (Manning).

    For RB's, to me #34 (Walter Payton, Earl Campbell, Thurman Thomas, Bo Jackson) is always the coolest # for a RB, edging out #32 (Jim Brown, Marcus Allen).

    That's why I started this post. Without looking it up, and without revealing it for everyone else (go ahead and throw out his initials if you know it), WHO HERE KNOWS WHO #34 is ON THE PACKERS RIGHT NOW?

    Hint: It's not Terdell Middleton.

    My favorite number is #23, though I can't remember a player using it.

    #34 is Levine, the undrafted safety.

    The late Travis Williams, arguably the greatest kickoff returner the Packers have ever had, wore #23.

    Okay, not really. 12. And that's not recent. It was my number for youth sports back when I was a little kid. Just a coincidence that Aaron wears it now.

    Since PackersRS already mentioned it, Anthony Levine is our prestigious #34 member. Who?
    Who the hell is this guy?

    Shouldn't a stud RB wear #34?
    Ryan Grant, Brandon Jackson (ok, he has the solid #32), or Starks?
