    Too many times, the media always focuses on the big names of any franchise, and there are many players that have played that were Pretty Damn Good in their own right.. So the question is:

    Who is a former Packers player that you want fans of other teams to know about?

    I plan to do a show called "The Hall of Very Good" which will include a team by team pick of "Who You Should Know About"

    To me he was great, the second best S of the 90s...

    LeRoy Butler

    The media don't recognize him enough IMHO...

    I gotta agree with that.

    Sharpe never gets any love anymore it seems like either.

    Great Topic btw

    Thanks Guys!! I agree with BOTH picks here.. Imagine if Sharpe wouldn't have gotten hurt.. His number are still great at the time he retired!

    And Butler was the Quintessential Safety.. Consummate Pro!

    Doug Evans was a beast for a little while.

    If I had to pick someone, though, I always liked Edgar Bennett.

    Dorsey Levens was beasty for awhile. Freeman was always a favorite (no Sharpe by anymeans). My favorite Packer name Chris Jacke!!! (no really, but I loved him when I was a kid)

    William Henderson, no. 33, best underrated fullback. He had the best hands catching a ball out of the backfield. He ran over a few people as well.

    I always felt Ahman Green in his prime was underappreciated. Dude had a year where he ran for 1800 yards and yet nobody really talked about him.

    Man I hit you up with a rep point for that one! He played for GB for 12 years (his entire career, started 11 seasons). He made the pro-bowl, played for the super bowl champs team and blocked for 2 major RB's, Green and Levens. He was a true Packer!

    How about Mark Chumra. 3x pro-bowler, super bowl champ. Played all of his years in GB.

    I definitely agree with all of these. What about Eugene Robinson? He played about the same time as LeRoy Butler.

    Agree with Green. He was the man in his prime. But the all time best Packer HAS to be Al Harris.

    I still think "hookers" when I hear that name. Maybe that's just me.

    I talked to Eugene Robinson on a flight from Seattle to Atlanta. He was sitting right in front of me. Very cool.....and down to earth. It was when he got traded to Atlanta, from Greenbay. We talked about Reggie White and a few other things.........but it was too bad a got picked up by the police trying to .......ummm.....I think it was pick up a hooker prior to the Superbowl that year.

    Back to the subject though. I know Tim Harris played for a couple other teams.......but I remember him playing well for the Packers........and he would get my vote 3rd.......after Sharpe and Butler. Chumura was a big part of the team too but because of all the BS he went through.........not sure about him. I do have a Chumura Jersey though. I wear it when I really want the Packers to totally rape the opposing team.:Heristical:

    According to Wikipedia, he solicited oral sex from an undercover cop for the low, low price of 40 bucks.

    I liked the guy when he was here, but I laughed when I read that.

    I grew up in Kenosha Wisconsin (left there though.....joined the Army) and when I told him I was a big Packer fan.....and a fan of his.....I told him I was from Kenosha. He said "oh.....I've been there quite a few times" I said wow....really.......what were you doing down there? He just kinda gave me a funny look. Then I just was like......."ummmm.......never mind.......forget I asked". Then we talked about Reggie White after that. LOL. Maybe 40 dollar hookers? :smile2:

    :Heristical: Could be.

    That is kind of weird that he wouldn't answer why he was in Kenosha.

    It's either hookers or nannies, damn, those 90's Packers should've listened to Reggie more often...

    I always felt Tyrone Williams and Craig Newsome didn't get enough credit.

    I bet you were not thinking that when Plaxico Burress burned Harris for what........about a 140 yards in the playoff game against the Giants a few years ago. He didn't get smoked like a cheap cigar. It was more like a flamethrower on a marshmellow. I'm not saying Al Harris is not a decent CB.......but in my opinion......I personally think he is over rated.
