All-Time Teams: Green Bay Packers



Introduction

In my endless research of all things football and through my passion for the history of the NFL, I have decided to try and compile an All-Time Team for all 32 current NFL franchises. By All-Time Team I mean a starting roster compiled of the very best players to ever put on each franchise’s jersey. I will be starting in alphabetical order by current franchise location, so Arizona Cardinals all the way to The Washington Football Team, with the goal of releasing one to two All-Time teams a week for the duration of the current NFL season. This is meant to be fun and cause some debate and is based on my opinion after all my research and deep dives into each franchise’s history. Of course, not everyone will agree with who I chose, and I’d love to hear from anyone who agrees or disagrees, but first, let’s lay out some ground rules for how I came up with each team.


1. Each team roster will consist of the following:

Offense - 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 2 OT, 2 OG, 1 C

Defense - 2 DE, 2 DT, 3 LB, 2 CB, 2 S

Special Teams - 1 K, 1 P, 1 Returner

Coach - 1 Head Coach


2. I only considered an individual’s stats and contributions with each specific franchise. For example, Peyton Manning’s years with the Broncos were not considered when deciding on the starting QB of the Colts All-Time Team. As a result, the stats and awards listed with each individual player are only those that were achieved with that specific franchise.


3. A player cannot represent two teams as the starter. Players who spent time with more than one team were considered for the franchise they spent the most time with or had the most impact on. This rule led to some interesting scenarios that I will discuss in detail with each specific article to try and clear up any confusion.


4. A player’s stats and impact were considered in context with their era. This won’t simply be a listing of who passed or ran for the most yards in franchise history.


5. All stats are from Pro-Football-Reference and through the 2021 season. I will also be counting sacks from 1960, though the NFL doesn't officially count sacks until 1982.


6. Players in the "Honorable Mentions" section are ordered by year. It's not an indication of where I believe they rank in franchise history.


Now that that’s out of the way, let’s get to it!


Green Bay Packers All-Time Team


Franchise Information

First Season: 1921

Record: 782-581-38 (57.37 W-L%)

Playoff Record: 36-25

Super Bowls Won: 4 (1966, 1967, 1996 and 2010) (Lost in 1997)

Pre-Super Bowl Championships Won: 9 (1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939, 1944, 1961, 1962 and 1965) (Lost in 1938 and 1960)

Passing Leader: Brett Favre 5,377/8,754 | 61,655 Yds | 442 TD

Rushing Leader: Ahman Green 1,851 Att | 8,322 Yds | 54 TD

Receiving Leader: Donald Driver 743 Rec | 10,137 Yds | 61 TD

Sack Leader: Willie Davis 99.5 Sk

Interception Leader: Bobby Dillon 52 Int

Scoring Leader: Mason Crosby 1,682 Points

Winningest Coach: Curly Lambeau 209-104-21


QB: Aaron Rodgers (2005-Present)

Record: 139-66-1 | 65.3 Cmp% | 55,360 Yds | 449 TD | 93 Int | 3,372 Rush Yds | 34 Rush TD | Led League in TD 2016 and 2020 (40, 48) | Led League in Cmp% 2020 (70.7) | Led League in Yds/A 2011 (9.2) | Led League in QB Rating 2011, 2012, 2020 and 2021 (122.5, 108, 121.5, 111.9) | 10x Pro-Bowl (09, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19, 20, 21) | 4x All-Pro (11, 14, 20, 21) | 2011, 2014, 2020 and 2021 MVP | 2011 Bert Bell | 2010 Super Bowl Champion | Hall of Fame All-2010s Team


This past season put the nail in the coffin on who's the best quarterback in Packers history. After the 2021 season, Aaron Rodgers now has one more Pro-Bowl, one more All-Pro Team and one more MVP than Brett Favre. It's really that fourth MVP that I think finally separates Rodgers from the rest. Only Peyton Manning has won more league MVPs in NFL history. Rodgers has won just under 140 games and has guided the Packers to 11 winning seasons, 11 playoff appearances and a Super Bowl victory in 2010. He's led the league in touchdowns twice, completion percentage once, yards per attempt once and quarterback rating four times. Rodgers has also been named to 10 Pro-Bowls, four All-Pro Teams and the Hall of Fame All-2010s Team. As stated above, he's also been named the league MVP four different times and he will without a doubt be a first ballot Hall of Famer. The Packers are the most blessed team in NFL history at the quarterback position. After Rodgers, they have three other Hall of Famers in Arnie Herber, Bart Starr and Brett Favre.

RB: Jim Taylor (1958-1966)

4.5 Yds/A | 8,207 Yds | 81 TD | 187 Rec | 1,505 Rec Yds | 10 Rec TD | Led League in Yds 1962 (1,474) | Led League in TD 1961 and 1962 (15, 19) | Led League in Yds/G 1962 (105.3) | Led League in Yscm 1962 (1,580) | Led League in RRTD 1961 and 1962 (16, 19) | 5x Pro-Bowl (60, 61, 62, 63, 64) | 1x All-Pro (62) | 1962 MVP | Hall of Fame All-1960s Team | Hall of Fame Class 1976


First up at running back is Jim Taylor. There should be no disagreement with this selection. Taylor was the lead back for four championship winning teams, including winning the first Super Bowl. He had over 1,000 yards rushing five different seasons, including leading the league in 1962, which was the only season during Jim Brown's career that someone other than Brown led the league. His 81 rushing touchdowns are still the franchise record and at retirement he ranked third in yards and second in touchdowns in NFL history. He was named to five Pro-Bowls and one All-Pro Team and was named the 1962 MVP. Taylor was named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1976.


RB: Ahman Green (2000-2006, 2009)

4.5 Yds/A | 8,322 Yds | 54 TD | 350 Rec | 2,726 Rec Yds | 14 Rec TD | 4x Pro-Bowl (01, 02, 03, 04)


Now, back to maybe a controversial opinion. I'm going with Ahman Green as the second running back, over the likes of four other Hall of Famers. It really came down to Hornung and Green for me. Hornung has more accolades, in that he was twice voted All-Pro and was actually named the 1961 MVP, but this was more to being a superstar on a great team than it was due to his play on the field. That's not to say he wasn't very good but consider that he never ran for over 1,000 yards in a season and only had double digit touchdowns once. He only ran for over 500 yards in three seasons. Green on the other hand ran for over 1,000 yards in six different seasons, including over 1,800 in 2003. Green unfortunately gets over shadowed due to not playing for a championship team and playing during an era that was arguably the deepest the league has ever been at the position, but his 8,322 yards are still the franchise record. Johnny "Blood", Clark Hinkle and Tony Canadeo are all Hall of Fame running backs that also played for the Packers.

Don Hutson is the greatest receiver in NFL history not named Jerry Rice. Hutson played for the Packers from 1935-1945, where he set records that wouldn't be broken for decades. He was so a head of his time; it is almost unbelievable. Hutson led the league in receptions eight times, in yards seven times, in touchdowns nine times, in yards per game eight times, in yards per touch three times, in yards from scrimmage three times, and finally rushing and receiving touchdowns seven times. He may be the most dominant player in NFL history, period. When Hutson retired, he was first in NFL history in receptions, yards and touchdowns. To put just how dominant he was into perspective, consider that he had 298 more receptions, 4,682 more yards and 63 more touchdowns than anyone else, ever. His touchdown record wasn't broken until 1989, over 40 years later.


WR: Sterling Sharpe (1988-1994)

595 Rec | 8,134 Yds | 65 TD | Led League in Rec 1989, 1992 and 1993 (90, 108, 112) | Led League in Yds 1992 (1,461) | Led League in TD 1992 and 1994 (13, 18) | Led League in Yds/G 1992 (91.3) | Led League in Yds/Tch 1992 (13.1) | 5x Pro-Bowl (89, 90, 92, 93, 94) | 3x All-Pro (89, 92, 93)


Sterling Sharpe should be in the Hall of Fame. Sharpe only played seven seasons due to a career ending neck injury but was still able to rack up over 8,000 yards and 60 touchdowns. He led the league in receptions three times, yards once, touchdowns twice, yards per game once and yards per touch once. He was named to five Pro-Bowls and three All-Pro Teams. He had at least 1,000 yards five times and double-digit touchdowns four times. If players like Gale Sayers and Terrell Davis are in the Hall of Fame, so should Sterling Sharpe. It's truly a shame we weren't able to see Favre to Sharpe for more seasons.


WR: James Lofton (1978-1986)

530 Rec | 9,656 Yds | 49 TD | Led League in Yds/Rec 1983 and 1984 (22.4, 22) | 7x Pro-Bowl (78, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85) | 1x All-Pro (81) | Hall of Fame All-1980s Team | Hall of Fame Class 2003


Rounding out the wide receivers is Hall of Famer James Lofton. Lofton was extremely consistent for nine seasons in Green Bay. He had over 1,000 yards in five different seasons and twice he led the league in yards per reception. Lofton was named to seven Pro-Bowls and one All-Pro Team as well as being named to the Hall of Fame All-1980s Team. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2003. The Packers have a whole slew of other good wide receivers in their history, including borderline Hall of Famer Billy Howton and the franchise record holder in yards, Donald Driver. I still give Lofton the slight edge over Davante Adams, but Adams has been great and another season or two at his current pace and he'll supplant Lofton here.

322 Rec | 4,223 Yds | 39 TD | 3x Pro-Bowl (82, 83, 84)


Tight End is thinner for the Packers than most other positions. Paul Coffman was solid in Green Bay from 1978-1985 where he was named to three straight Pro-Bowls from 1982-1984. His best season came in 1983 when he had 54 receptions for 814 yards and 11 touchdowns.

One of the greatest offensive tackles of all time, Forrest Gregg is the first pick for the All-Time Packers. He started every game in 10 different seasons, was named to nine Pro-Bowls and seven All-Pro Teams on his way to being named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team. He was the leader on the offensive line for five championship winning teams and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1977.

Started 69 of 95 Games | 3x All-Pro (29, 30, 31) | Hall of Fame All-1920s Team | Hall of Fame Class 1964


Just like the offensive tackles, the offensive guard position has one player from the great 1960s Packers and the other is from the great 1930s Packers. Mike Michalske was a key member on the offensive line that won four championships in the 1930s and was named to three All-Pro Teams and the Hall of Fame All-1920s Team. Michalske was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1964. Gale Gillingham deserves more attention from Hall of Fame voters as well.

First up on the defensive side of the ball is Willie Davis. Davis had at least six sacks in every season he played in Green Bay and had at least 11 in sacks in five seasons. He was named to five Pro-Bowls and five All-Pro Teams on his way to being named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team. His 99.5 sacks are still the franchise record. Davis was a leader on the Packers defense that won five championships and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1986.


DE: Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila (2000-2008)

1 Int | 17 FF | 7 FR | 74.5 Sk | 302 Tackles | 74 TFL | 1x Pro-Bowl (03)


This would be Reggie White's spot, but he spent his better seasons in Philidelphia, so I'm going with Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila. He spent nine seasons in Green Bay from 2000-2008 and was named to one Pro-Bowl, coming in 2003. Kabeer had at least 10 sacks in four seasons and at least six sacks in seven. Aaron Kampman and Ezra Johnson were close class for this spot, but Kabeer had a much more dominant peak, so he gets the nod here.

Henry Jordan is the first defensive tackle for the All-Time Packers. Jordan had at least five sacks in every season in Green Bay except his last two. He was named to four Pro-Bowls and five straight All-Pros coming in 1960-1964. He was a key defender for the Packers that won five championships and he was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1995.


DT: Dave Hanner (1952-1964)

4 Int | 9 FR | 18 Sk | 2x Pro-Bowl (53, 54)


After Jordan, I'm going with Dave Hanner. Hanner spent 13 seasons in Green Bay, and we don't know his sack total due to pro-football-reference only counting them since 1960. He was named to the Pro-Bowl in 1953 and 1954 and played in over 160 games with the Packers.

The first linebacker for the All-Time Packers is the great Dave Robinson. Robinson had over 20 sacks and 20 interceptions during his 10 seasons in Green Bay. He was named to three Pro-Bowls and one All-Pro Team as well as being named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team. Robinson won three championships with the Packers and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2013.


LB: Ray Nitschke (1958-1972)

25 Int | 23 FR | 16 Sk | 1x Pro-Bowl (64) | 2x All-Pro (64, 66) | Hall of Fame All-1960s Team | Hall of Fame Class 1978


Ray Nitschke, one of the hardest hitters in NFL history is next at linebacker for the All-Time Packers. Nitschke surprising was only voted to one Pro-Bowl and two All-Pro Teams, but he was still voted to the Hall of fame All-1960s Team. He played in just under 200 games with the Packers and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1978.


LB: Clay Matthews III (2009-2018)

6 Int | 15 FF | 5 FR | 83.5 Sk | 482 Tackles | 121 TFL | 6x Pro-Bowl (09, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15) | 1x All-Pro (10)


The most recent player on this team, Clay Matthews III, is the final starting linebacker. Matthews had at least five sacks in every season in Green Bay and at least 10 sacks in four seasons. He was named to six Pro-Bowls and one All-Pro Team and also was a big reason for the Packers last Super Bowl win. He has a good shot to make the Hall of Fame once he becomes eligible. Bill Forester just missed out on this spot as well as John Anderson, who was a member of the Hall of Fame All-1980s Team.

39 Int | 13 FR | 1 Sk | 5x Pro-Bowl (63, 64, 65, 66, 67) | 4x All-Pro (62, 63, 65, 66) | Hall of Fame All-1960s Team | Hall of Fame Class 1980


No surprise here, Herb Adderly was the key defensive back for the great Packers Teams of the 1960s. He intercepted 39 passes and was named to five Pro-Bowls and four All-Pro Teams. Adderley had at least three interceptions in all but one of his seasons in Green Bay and he was a member of all five championship teams. He was named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1980.


CB: Charles Woodson (2006-2012)

38 Int | 15 FF | 6 FR | 11.5 Sk | 467 Tackles | 29 TFL | Led League in Int 2009 and 2011 (9, 7) | 4x Pro-Bowl (08, 09, 10, 11) | 2x All-Pro (09, 11) | 2009 Defensive Player of the Year | Hall of Fame All-2000s Team | Hall of Fame Class 2020


I originally had Charles Woodson as a starter for the All-Time Raiders because he spent more seasons with them, but he was so much more dominant with the Packers that I think it makes more sense to have him here. He spent seven seasons in Green Bay and intercepted 38 passes, including leading the league in interceptions in both 2009 and 2011. Woodson was named to four straight Pro-Bowls from 2008-2011 and both the 2009 and 2011 All-Pro Teams. He was also named the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year, named to the Hall of Fame All-2000s Team and inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2020. If you're still thinking Woodson should be an All-Time Raider, then consider he made more All-Pros, had more interceptions, led the league in interceptions more times, named Defensive Player of the Year more times, had more touchdowns and more sacks with the Packers.

One of the best safeties in NFL history, Willie Wood, is the first safety for the All-Time Packers. He had at least two interceptions in all but two seasons and had at least five interceptions in five seasons. His best season came in 1962 when he led the league in interceptions with nine. Wood was voted to eight Pro-Bowls and five All-Pro Teams on his way to winning five championships and being named to the Hall of Fame All-1960s Team. He was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1989.

This spot might cause some more controversy. You might have been expecting to see LeRoy Butler here, but Bobby Dillon gets the nod. He only played in eight seasons, but he was so dominant that I have to go with him. Dillon had at least six interceptions in six seasons and had nine interceptions in three different seasons. He intercepted 52 passes, which is still the franchise record, and he was named to four Pro-Bowls and four All-Pro. Dillon got overlooked because he played during the decade that the Packers didn't win any championships, but he finally got the recognition he deserved in 2020 when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. LeRoy Butler also finally got what he deserved and was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2022

K: Mason Crosby (2007-Present)

81.1 FG% | 58 Long | 1,806 Points | Led League in FG% 2020 (100%) | Led League in Points 2007 (141)


Mason Crosby just gets the edge over Ryan Longwell. He is the franchise record holder in points scored and led the league in points and field goal percentage once each. He surprisingly has never made a Pro-Bowl or All-Pro Team, but he has been an extremely steady kicker for over a decade now, including winning a Super Bowl in 2010.


Honorable Mentions

  1. Chester Marcol (1972-1980) | 61.5 FG% | 52 Long | 521 Points | Led League in FGM 1972 and 1974 (33, 25) | Led League in Long 1974 (52) | Led League in Points 1972 and 1974 (128, 94) | 2x Pro-Bowl (72, 74) | 2x All-Pro (72, 74)

  2. Chris Jacke (1989-1996) | 77.2 FG% | 54 Long | 820 Points | 1x All-Pro (83)

  3. Ryan Longwell (1997-2005) | 81.6 FG% | 54 Long | 1,054 Points


P: Tim Masthay (2010-2015)

17,230 Punt Yds | 71 Long | 44.2 Yds/Punt


Punter is a rather thin position for the Packers. They don't have many long tenured punters, but Masthay was a very good punter for six seasons, averaged over 44 yards per punt and won a Super Bowl in 2010.


Honorable Mentions

  1. Max McGee (1954-1967) | 10,647 Punt Yds | 63 Long | 41.6 Yds/Punt | Led League in Punt Yds 1954 and 1959 (2,999, 2,716) | 1x Pro-Bowl (61)

  2. Dave Beverly (1975-1980) | 18,785 Punt Yds | 65 Long | 37.9 Yds/Punt

  3. Dan Bracken (1985-1990) | 14, 602 Punt Yds | 65 Long | 39.7 Yds/Punt


Returner: Travis Williams (1967-1970)

209 Punt Rt Yds | 1 Punt Rt TD | 17.4 Yds/Punt Rt | 2,058 Kick Rt Yds | 5 Kick Rt TD | 26.7 Yds/Kick Rt | Led League in Punt Rt TD 1969 (1) | Led League in Kick Rt TD 1967 and 1969 (4, 1) | Led League in Yds/Kick Rt 1967 (41.1) | Led League in Kick Rt Long 1967 (104) | Led League in All-Purpose Yds 1969 (1,517)


Another position that might surprise, I'm going with Travis Williams over Desmond Howard. Howard had a great season with the Packers, but it was just that; one season. Travis Williams led the league in punt return touchdowns once, kick return touchdowns twice, yards per kick return once, kick return long once and all-purpose yards once. He averaged 41 yards per kick return in 1967, that's not a typo, 41 yards! He had over 2,000 total return yards and six return touchdowns in his four seasons in Green Bay. Howard, as we all know he was named Super Bowl MVP in 1996, but let's be honest, that should have been Favre.


Honorable Mentions

  1. Steve Odom (1974-1979) | 569 Punt Rt Yds | 1 Punt Rt TD | 8.9 Yds/Punt Rt | 4,124 Kick Rt Yds | 2 Kick Rt TD | 23 Yds/Kick Rt | Led League in Kick Rt TD 1975 and 1978 (1, 1) | Led League in Yds/Kick Rt 1978 (27.1) | 1x Pro-Bowl (75)

  2. Desmond Howard (1996, 1999) | 968 Punt Rt Yds | 3 Punt Rt TD | 13.8 Yds/Punt Rt | 824 Kick Rt Yds | 20.1 Yds/Kick Rt | Led League in Punt Rt Yds 1996 (875) | Led League in Punt Rt TD 1996 (3) | Led League in Yds/Punt Rt 1996 (15.1)


Head Coach: Vince Lombardi (1959-1967)

Regular Season: 89-29-4 | 75.4 W-L% | Playoffs: 9-1 | 1959 Coach of the Year | 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966 and 1967 NFL Champion | 1966 and 1967 Super Bowl Champion | 1960 NFL Championship Appearance | Hall of Fame Class 1971


Finally, we have the head coach position. It was closer than you might expect between Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi. Ultimately, I went with what Lombardi was able to do in nine seasons over what Lambeau did in 29. Lombardi won over 75% of his games, never had a losing season, went to six championship games and won five of them, including winning the first two Super Bowls. He was named the 1959 Coach of the Year and, as we all know, had the Super Bowl trophy named after him. Lombardi was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1971. Lambeau is the all-time leader in wins for Packers with over 200. He coached the Packers for 29 seasons, having a winning record in 26 of them and led them to seven championship games, winning six.

Honorable Mentions

  1. Curley Lambeau (1921-1949) | 209-104-21 | 66.8 W-L% | Playoffs: 3-2 | 1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939 and 1944 NFL Champion | 1938 NFL Championship Appearance | Hall of Fame Class 1963

  2. Bart Starr (1975-1983) | Regular Season: 52-76-3 | 40.8 W-L% | Playoffs: 1-1

  3. Mike Holmgren (1992-1998) | Regular Season: 75-37 | 67 W-L% | Playoffs: 9-5 | 1996 Super Bowl Champion | 1997 NFC Champion

  4. Mike Sherman (2000-2005) | Regular Season: 57-39 | 59.4 W-L% | Playoffs: 2-4

  5. Mike McCarthy (2006-2018) | 125-77-2 | 61.8 W-L% | Playoffs: 10-8 | 2010 Super Bowl Champion

I think it's interesting how the All-Time Bears are loaded at OL, RB, DL, and LB while the All-Time Packers are loaded at QB, WR, OL, (somewhat, but to a lesser degree than the Bears at) RB, and in the defensive secondary. It's almost as if those two franchises came up with a blueprint for success back in the 1920s and have never really wavered from it (and that are quite different from their rivals').

I've read several accounts of Verne Lewellen (perhaps better known for his backfield exploits) being an excellent punter for the Packers.
