    I also hope they do more. There are a lot of great players in our heritage who deserve to be remembered.

    Yes, move Bart closer, and while you are at it, let's honor the great Ray Nitschke with a statue of this...

    I would say have a statue of Paul Hornung there too, but fans would have to choose between this pic of him following Jerry Kramer on Lombardi's famous "Packer Sweep" ( I know they have a simular likeness of the "Golden Boy" at Notre Dame)

    or the one we never got to see, the one of him with one hand wrapped around a scotch & soda and the other hand wrapped around some blonde...

    Of course the queenies have to do anything the Packers do ( except win Super Bowls...)

    ...but here is the statue they are contemplating putting up outside that toilet bowl they call a football field, honoring three of their greatest players...

    I think every SB winning "era" should be represented with a statue.
    I know it's too soon, but Favre and/or Holmgren should have their statues around Lambeau, and so should Rodgers and/or McCarthy someday.

    I don't like the idea of having a lot of statues though.
    But maybe one statue for every chmpionship? With the key components?

    Say, we won 7 with Lombardi. So, Lombardi, Starr, Hornung, Nitschke, Kramer, Taylor and Davis, for example.
    Of course, those of Lombardi and Lambeau should be the most imponent, biggest ones. And I don't like the idea of having Starr closer to Lombardi. It takes some of the imponence away.

    I agree. I don't think we want too many statues around. A statue should be reserved for those really special players/coaches who add to the legacy of the team. I don't even think it should be about SB alone or personal accomplishments.
