    Ted Hendricks I wouldn't count bc he had great seasons elsewhere.

    Majik is a one hit wonder. Injuries killed his career.

    I wasn't sure if you meant One Hit Wonder just for a Packers season of service, or if that would also be the pinnacle of their entire career, so that's why I mentioned Hendricks.

    How about Jim Otto? How about Ben Davidson? Both superstars after leaving the Packers...

    Chuck Mercein was signed mid season from the Giants. Played a key role for the Packers in the drive to the Superbowl including the Ice Bowl. After that, he appeared in the Superbowl and then dissappeared...

    Sorry, misunderstood the topic. Neither were one hit wonders upon leaving the Packers.

    Don Beebe. He was a great contributor to the 1996 championship season. His only other season with GB was the following year in '97 when he had a whopping two catches for 28 yards.

    In the same year (along with Desmond as already mentioned) you have another one year wonder in Keith Jackson. They brought him in during the 1995 season but he only had 13 catches but exploded for 40 and 500 yards opposite Chewy in the '96 season. Pretty good.

    De Mond Parker out of Oklahoma.

    I remember in his rookie year in 1999 he played for an injured Levens and rushed for over 100 yards and a couple TDs against the Bears in a December game. In early 2000 he was busted for weed and was done in the NFL.

    Does Bubba Franks count or did he shine too long before burning out?

    McKenzie was a good CB for several years, much like a Javon Walker or Jackie Harris. All should have stayed Packers longer but wanted out.

    Samkon Gado is so far the feel-good one hit wonder of the group, in my opinion

    I agreee with you and the few others that said Samkon Gado, I never ereally thought he would continue to contribute for years after his breakout, but I never thought I'd never hear of him again

    Howard Green had some pretty big plays in the Superbowl run, he also had that hit on Rothlisberger which resulted in a Pick 6.

    Technically he was supposed to be amazing, but had three crappy years and was cut after that. He mostly only played special teams. But his rock-star attention alone I suppose could qualify him for 1 hit wonder status, since so much was expected of him.

    Peprah was deceiving... The only reason he appeared to be good was because he had Nick Collins back there with him to cover up on his mistakes. He was not so lucky last year with Burnett, who is good but nowhere near the quality of safety that we had in Collins.
