    Favorite old Packer is no contest - Bart Starr. I loved watching him play at Metropolitan Stadium against the Vikings.

    Favorite Current Player would probably have to be Matthews. As I have gotten older it seems like it is more fun to watch the defense and it is amazing to me that CMIII has been able to be so dominant so early in his career. It is just plain fun to watch him shell-shock a defense.

    Bart Starr for favorite old player. But Dave Robinson would come in a close second. Why? Because two of my adult sons and I had some time alone with him a couple of years ago and he was one of the most humble and gracious professional athletes I've ever met.

    Donald Driver would be my favorite new (sort of) player. The guy loves the game and lights up the room with that million dollar smile. His love for the game seems to be infectious and he has such a positive effect on those around him.

    ^ No lie I'm old. My second would probably be Carroll Dale -- more than McGhee or even Hornung (I actually preferred Elijah Pitts to Hornung).

    I dont like to single out players as favorites or least favorites but I will say that Clay Matthews is one of the hardest workers I have ever seen. Its amazing to watch him play and when he does that flex after a sack, its pretty scary lol.

    The old Packer question is hard because im only 18 but I was born the year that Brett Favre joined the Packers, ill always be honored that I was a Packers fan while he was QB.

    Favorite player Greg Jennings because you know he is a class act guy. After the super bowl win he gave praise to the defensive leader cwood and said it was hard when the # 1 receiver went down DD. Everyone knows Jennings is the #1 but Jennings learned from driver and it was cool that GJ said that.

    Favorite old packer would defiantly be sterling sharpe...had the guy not got injuried he would have gone down as the packers greatest receiver ever. Also I got to meet him and Shannon a lot cuz I went to school with his daughter when I was younger.

    Stirling was 1/2 of the reason I am a Packers fan, when I first started watching the NFL I saw him interviewed, and he was so down to earth and honest, it was instant man-love! While I could throw together a list of many I have loved in the past 20 odd years, Reggie and Stirling are my most memorable.

    Right now, it's impossible to choose, Rodgers is a loveable guy, and a hell of a player so I will say him for now.

    Aaron Rodgers.....big cliche? Yes. He is the best player on the best team. I love him.

    Close second -- Ryan Grant....I'm a huge Notre Dame fan as well.

    Kampman is a real stand up guy. His uncle is president of my son's college. His uncle speaks very highly of him, of course.

    I'm pretty sure there has already been a thread like this, because I'm pretty sure I've already said it, but:

    New: Woodson, Rodgers, Matthews, Jennings
    Old: Hornung, White, Starr, Butler, Favre
    Really old: Driver

    J/K. Love DD. Yep. Lots of favorite Packers.
