    Some of my favorites would have to be (in no particular order)

    Max Mcgee
    Carroll Dale
    Boyd Dowler
    Dave Robinson
    Ted "the Mad Stork" Hendricks (even though he only played for the Pack for one year)

    I used to like the productive Mark Murphy, also. Not the stooge that currently is making too much money to do absolutely nothing, but the bald-headed safety back in the day. I like Johnny Gray and Mark Lee and Mike Butler and Tony Bennett and who could forget Sanjay Beach - the receiver that started the hype. :)

    Did Murphy play for the Packers? I was pretty sure he was a Redskin only...

    1 ) Reggie White - I believe he was the best Defensive Player of all time and a top notch man.
    2 ) LeRoy Butler - Dude was a great player but he has a very good personality too. A true Packer great.
    3 ) Holmgren/Wolf - Putting them both in here for turning our franchise around (along with #92 and a certain #4 that remains nameless)
    4 ) Sterling Sharpe - He was the man... Too bad he got hurt probably would have been a HoFer if not for that.
    5 ) Vince Lombardi - Wasn't alive when he was but the lore is enough for this guy.
    6 ) Donald Driver - Great Wide receiver and a tough sob.
    7 ) Tim Harris - 6 guns a blazing after a sack.
    8 ) Edgar Bennett - He was a mudder had a lot of heart.
    9 ) Charles Woodson - Can we get a couple more of him????
    10 ) Robert Brooks (remember that cheesy cd he made, ya i bought a copy of it):crazy:

    So I have a GM, two coaches, 4 defensive players and 5 offensive guys not a bad mix ;)

    On offense I have to say Sterling Sharpe is my all-time favorite retired Packer. He destroyed DBs & he was all we ever had during those lean years. They couldn't stop him. I liked his media blackout policy too. He got bad press as a result but it only served to proved his point.

    On defense I liked Mike Douglass. The teams he played for weren't going to be competitive but he played like a man possessed. I think one year he had 180 tackles. Cool story - my sister worked at the Orange Julius in Port Plaza Mall & one day James Lofton & Mike Douglass patronized the place & she got them to sign autographs for me. I still have them.

    Remember Dave Roller? He played for the Pack from '75-'78 as a defensive lineman. The guy might have been 6'+ on paper, but I swear he was about 5'10 and about 280 max-- a freaking human bowling ball at nose tackle. He was awesome on a team that really sucked. And he might be one of the few pros who played in all the leagues, WFL, Canadian, USFL and the NFL. He probably would have been in the XFL had he been young enough. He was a great character.

    As far as Offense goes Sterling Sharpe and Bart Starr get my nod. For D I love Reggie White and Ray Nitschke. Random Pick LeRoy "its pronounce L'roy not LEE-roy" Butler. He was a beast and was the god father of the leap.

    I forgot Chuck Cecil, he was the original Hard Hitter on defense. Nobody wanted to catch a pass in his direction!
