    I thought with Wolfs comments on his opinion of the greatest packer of all time I would get everyone elses opinion on who really is the greatest packer of all time.

    I saw the NFL Network program on the 10 greatest Packers. I agree with Hutson as being no. 1.
    A different era, yes. But so versatile and so much more at a level above everyone else at the time.
    Two way players saved the team a lot of payroll. As much as I loved the players from the last 60 years I still have to give it to Don Hutson.

    Reality check! BART STARR !!! :tup: Five Championships in Seven Years, Two Super Bowl MVP'S, and least we forget

    it was Mr.STARR that called the plays in the huddle. The true Field General.

    It's hard to compare players but I think that Rodgers might still be happy to see Hutson lining up at wideout. He revolutionized his position and played head and shoulders above his peers AND he played defense. If you can't compare him to today's Megatron type receivers, you can make a valid argument that he would be a smoother version of a Wes Welker!

    Greatest Packer of all time? In terms of player or talent? Reggie White.

    I feel it's Don Hutson, and it's an easy call.
    No other player on the list dominated in his time to the extent that Hutson did.
    It is often said that Hutson changed the game with his receiver play.
    While Starr and White are among the best of all time, I don't think either can be said to have ever changed the game.
    That's the difference for me.

    I like the names mentioned here. Can we divide this offense and defense, separately?
    Offense-Don Hutson... Easy call. Not even close... To anyone in the NFL... No offense but Wesley Welker couldn't carry his jocksstrap.
    Defense-Reggie White... Again, an easy call.

    our opinion.....no one player could be called the greatest Packer of all time. We have our favorites, which were & are great players. But we have to keep in mind there always were other players on the team to help make any player look great. So is it fair to call any player the greatest Packer of all time when it is a team effort.?????????

    I don't think Reggie is an easy call. The biggest defensive favorite but his impact as a defender could be very comparable or less than some other greats.

    How about Herb Adderley?

    http://pfref.com/tiny/OgigX


    Consider, the best Packer team ever was in 1962 (and is in the argument as the best team ever EVER). Arguably the best Packer decade ever was the '60's. A large portion of the success of that era was defense. Adderley can be considered the best guy on that defense. Perhaps the best player, on the better side of the ball, of the most successful era, on perhaps the best team the franchise has seen.

    Something to think about anyway.

    Gotta be Hutson. Nobody else defined a position and set records that lasted as long as his.

    I'm staying with the field general as the greatest Packer of all time. Bart Starr.

    Ivo610, you ask people to state their opinion and then trash Packy for having one? Is it that you cannot tolerate a differing view or do you have to be an unsufferable know-it-all ? Stand back and listen sometime and you might learn something.
    Packy, you should be cheered , not lambasted!

    Clearly not the case, as anyone can see that.

    Stop trying to cause problems on this forum or you will end up gone like others who have done so in the past. You're new around here, but you should know that no one appreciates someone who tries to go around stirring up trouble.
