Fantasy Packer Lineup 1990-2012

Here's the game:

The Packers are in the Super Bowl, and you get to pick the offense "skill players" that Green Bay trots out.

Here are the assumptions:

  • Assume each player is in their absolute prime/ their best year. IE, don't consider Ahman Green as being his second time around, or Donald Driver circa 2012. Take everyone at their best.
  • This is not an exercise solely in "who is best?" Consider chemistry, strengths and weaknesses, playing styles, how they will mesh together.
  • If I've left someone off you feel should be included, put them on your team as a write in candidate.
  • Pick one quarterback, 3 RBs (one of them a FB), 3 WRs, 1 TE.
  • As the title suggests the players cover from 1990-2012. So sorry all you Don Hutson fans.

Here's my team

Quarterback: Aaron Rodgers.

I really thought about picking Favre. He just had such a penchant for making the big play. But Rodgers is more efficient and less prone to costly interceptions. But it was close. I didn't just automatically take Rodgers.

Running Backs:

Ahman Green and Ryan Grant with Edgar Bennett as my fullback. I really wanted to put Levens on my team. He is one of my favorite Packers ever (don't ask me why, I don't know) But he's just not better than Grant. I trust anyone of these backs to take a healthy chunk of carries and move the chains.

Wide Receivers:

Sterling Sharpe, Greg Jennings, Antonio Freeman.

This was was agonizing to pick. How do I leave off Donald Driver and Robert Brooks, to say nothing of the brilliant seasons that Walker had?

Sharpe was obvious- the man probably would be considered a top ten, if not top 5, receiver of all time if he hadn't had that career ending injury. He'd stack up to Megatron or Fitz any day in my book.

I had to include the master of routes, so Jennings was in. It was close between Freeman, Brooks and Driver. Call me nostalgic for the 90s Super Bowl years, I chose Freeman, though I am open to being wrong on this pick.

Tight End:

Mark Chmura

It should be Keith Jackson- but his best year's were with the Eagles, I couldn't honestly pick him as a Packer. Chmura had some solid seasons for us in the 90s, he gets the nod.
