I read Adam Rank’s article on the best quarterbacks in Green Bay Packers history with some interest.
I thought the list would be fairly predictable, with either Brett Favre or Bart Starr ending up at the top. My personal selection is Starr, simply because he won five championships.
Favre, of course, only won one, despite all his passing records. Another factor working against Favre is his predilection to take the Packers out games by forcing a balls into coverage, which often resulted in a game-killing interceptions.
Starr was at the top of Rank’s list.
What’s interesting is Favre came in third behind Arnie Herber.
Honestly, I don’t know a lot about Herber, but Rank points out he won four titles. Because of the rationale I used to put Starr at No. 1, I can’t really argue with Herber coming in second.
Aaron Rodgers finished fourth on the list and, I’d argue, if he wins Sunday, he inches closer to Favre. In my mind, he’ll either need to win another championship or put together a long, stellar career to pass him.
