Starting on November 22nd of this year, the NFL Network began to reveal members of their NFL 100 All-Time Team and has released several names of Packer greats. Most recently, former QB Brett Favre was revealed as a member of the team. Below is a list of notable Packers players that have made the team:
Originally drafted by the Atlanta Falcons from Southern Miss, Favre played QB with the Packers from 1992 to 2007 before becoming Jet Favre in 2008 and then playing for that other trash team known as the Vikings. Favre was named to 11 Pro Bowls and named NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1995, 1996, and 1997. He led the Packers to a win at Super Bowl XXXI. His #4 has been retired.
Hutson played with the Packers from 1935 to 1945. He was also an assistant coach from 1944 to 1948. He was named the NFL’s Most Valuable Player in 1941 and 1942. The Packers won 3 NFL championships during his tenure in 1936, 1939, and 1944. His #14 has been retired.
Gregg played offensive tackle for the Packers in 1956, and from 1958 to 1970. He was also a Packers coach from 1984 to 1987. During his time with the team, the Packers won Super Bowl I, II, and VI. They also won NFL championships in 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966, and 1967. He was a part of the Pro Bowl 9 times in his career. He also made the NFL 75 All-Time Team.
Hubbard played with the Packers from 1929 to 1933, and also in 1935. The Packers claimed four championships while he was on the team: 1927, 1929, 1930, and 1931. He also made the NFL 75 All-Time Team.
White was one of the classiest and most liked players to ever wear a Green Bay Packers uniform. We were very lucky to have him. He spent the first half of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles — a stink that is hard to wash off. However, he will always be known as a Packer — he was with the team from 1993 until 1998. Just like Favre, White was a part of the Packers team that won Super Bowl XXXI. He was named to the Pro Bowl 13 times in his career. He was also named to the NFL 75th All-Time Team.
Lombardi needs no introduction but here goes: He was head coach of the Packers from 1959 until 1967. His tenure as coach oversaw a lot of important changes to the Packers and the league as a whole. He was named NFL Coach of the Year in 1959 and 1961. He was also General Manager during those years and also in 1968 after John Phillip Bengtson took over as head coach. The trophy that the Minnesota Vikings will never touch just happens to be named after him.
Lambeau was with the Packers from 1919 until 1929 as a player. He was also head coach from 1919 until 1949. With his help, the Packers won NFL championships in 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, and 1944. His entire coach career record(including Packers, Chicago Cardinals, and Washington Redskins) was 229-134-22 with a .623 winning percentage. Lambeau Field was renamed as such after his death in 1965.
Your eyes do not deceive you. Bart Starr was not included.
