    Can be defined any way.
    Some of you may not be old enough to remember some that I will mention. In fact, I know some of you AREN'T.

    And I said MEMORABLE.
    Not best. Not most important.... etc......
    I will list 10 that stand out to me.

    I have a few more recent ones...

    2005 Samkon Gado long TD run against the Eagles when we SUCKED!...I was at that game in Philly. Their Cheesesteaks are not that good, by the way!

    Tramon Williams Pick 6 against Peyton Manning in 2008...the Ascension of Tramon was beginning

    Brett Favre OVERTIME TD WINNING throw against the Broncos in 2007

    Ryan Grant scoring the first RUSHING TD against the Viqueens in 2007

    Clay Matthews stripping the ball from Peterson in 2009

    The Onsides KICK SURPRISE against the Cardinals in the WILDCARD game in 2009

    I don't have one single memorable play, but Donald Driver's 61 yard TD pass this past season stands out.

    The dart Rodgers threw to Jordy Nelson in GB vs Atlanta I.

    Tramon Williams pick 6 in GB vs Atlanta II

    BJ Raji pick 6 vs. Chicago.

    Super Bowl 45.. Just a ton of great plays- 3rd and 10, Rodgers to Nelson for 30 something yards right after Nelson dropped an easy one. Nick Collins pick 6 after Howard Green hit Big Ben in the arm. Matthews forcing Mendenhall to fumble...

    I could go one, but I think I'll stop.

    Actually as a memorable game rather than moment, Divisional playoff game a few years ago, Ryan Grant fumbling twice in the snow against the Seahawks, and after a verbal berating from myself and probably every other Packer fan on the planet, he turned it around and ran for over 200 yards and 3 tds, amazing turn around.
    I quickly shut up, and although watching at home, gave him a one man standing ovation at the end, I was that impressed.

    That's a really good question, Frank. There are a multitude of memorable moments, both good and bad. My all time favorite, of that list, has to be Reggie's sacks in SB 31. I can still remember how happy I was, one of my happiest sports moments. One of my worst memorable moments was the playoff loss to the Giants in 2007(?), the year the Giants won the SB, hit me kind of hard.

    Had to go with Rodgers getting strip-sacked in the Cardinals playoff game. Still can't believe that a facemask penalty wasn't called :Arrgghh:

    Thats a great list of plays. The one play from last year that sticks in my head wasn't even in the playoffs. It was the long TD that Donald Driver had vs the 49ers. I was at that game and that was one of the best high effort plays I ever saw. DD was not gonna be denied the end zone!

    My vote went to Al Harris in the Seattle game. I also think GaryGnu referenced another memorable play. Did anyone mention Rodgers tackling Urlacher in the Division Championship game? Not sure how momentous the play was but it's really fun to say.

    O ya forgot about the yancy thingpen drop in the endzone that would have wrecked our playoff chances and then in 2003 I believe the cardinals Vikings game where the cards just sucked yet proceeded to win with no time left and knocked the vikes out of the playoffs and sent the pack into the playoffs...

    Also Paul allens call in the saints game

    My most memorable play is the Al Harris int because it's the one I saw live.

    But this last SB was so sweet. I'd have to go with Rodgers to Jennings on 3rd down, or Collins INT. The later was the big play of the game, but the 3rd down conversion sealed the deal. It was a close game, and due to the injuries I was questioning whether we could sustain the lead or not. But that play made me sure that we would win it.

    For me there's no contest: Starr's sneak in the Ice Bowl. No, I wasn't there but I was watching it on TV and recognized at the time what it meant: Lombardi was about to realize his dream of three straight championships.

    Second place is perhaps odd considering all the great plays from the Lombardi days to date. McGee's hangover game in the first Super Bowl (stayed up all night, making it back just in time for breakfast because he wasn't supposed to play and played only because Dowler got hurt) and that first TD catch was amazing. A lot of the plays already mentioned come to mind too - who didn't love Reggie's Super Bowl sacks and Favre's first TD pass to Rison? But one play that is etched in my memory is the Dorsey Levens' catch in the NFCCG at Lambeau against Carolina. The Panthers had taken a 7-0 lead on an INT return. Levens ran for 35 on 3rd and one to set up first and ten at the Panther's 29-yard line. On the next play, Levens ran a route out of the backfield and drew coverage by a CB. Levens out-leaped the CB to grab a perfect pass from Favre - either Levens catches it or it falls incomplete - in the corner of the end zone and barely stays in bounds. If you find a replay of that play, the crowd goes silent when the ball is in the air and then just explodes at the catch. I knew then the Packers were going onto their first post-Lombardi Super Bowl. The presentation after that game at Lambeau was also priceless, although not a play of course.
