    I would list it like this ...

    Curly Lambeau
    Vince Lombardi
    Bart Starr
    Ray Nitschke

    Note ... yes, Favre was a far better athlete and player than Starr. But, I picked Starr due to the five world championships, the fact that he served as head coach for nine seasons, during one of the worst periods of team directors leadership (or non-leadership, rather), and the fact that Starr never acted like a dunce.

    Lambeau
    Lombardi
    Starr
    Hutson

    Yes I know it's tempting to consider Favre or White but that would mean one of them deserves to be on there more that these four and that's not the case.

    Good list but I'm still shocked you didn't include Favre. ;)

    Good point. Hutson is likely more worthy than Starr. But, I just went with the two best coaches in team history and the two leaders of the offense and defense.

    I voted for Lombardi Nitschke White & Rodgers. Had a hard time voting for Rodgers as Starr & Favre are just as worthy maybe more.

    I did Lombardi, Lambeau, Starr, and White. An extra head will be put in later and that will be Rodgers

    This is actually a good problem to have. Several teams will be much easier. I'm sure the Steelers have the same problem. Steelers would be Bradshaw Harris then a toss up between about 5 guys

    1. Lombardi - most famous coach in nfl history.
    2. Hutson - the most dominate player in nfl player.
    3. Starr - 5 titles. A true field general. Best post season QB. Oh and the classiest packer of all time.
    4. White - changed the culture. He also means as much to packer nation as any player we have ever cheered.

    How much do you value modern NFL compared to the black & white days when the talent was watered down still, just a fraction of today, and there were only 6 teams?

    You need two categories, say before and after 1990. Pre 1990:
    Lambeau
    Lombardi
    Starr
    Hutson

    Post 1990:
    White
    Favre
    Rodgers
    Thompson

    (post 1990 is high arguable but that's what I came up with five minutes prior to walking out the door).

    I really wanted to choose Favre and Rodgers, but I ended up choosing:
    Reggie White
    Curly Lambeau
    Bart Starr
    Vince Lombardi

    4 players that not only represented the Packers, but represent the NFL.

    The Packers' Mt. Rushmore imo should be Lambeau the founder and father, Lombardi the savior, Don Hutson the first team superstar, and Bob Harlan, who resurrected the franchise in the 1990's as club president, board chair and CEO. None of the other players or coaches would have mattered without these four in club history.
