LAMBEAU LEGENDS

BART STARR, BRETT FAVRE, AARON RODGERS. THREE REASONS GREEN BAY IS STILL KNOWN AS TITLETOWN.

The Green Bay Packers are among the NFL’s most exemplary franchises. With four Super Bowl titles spread over three eras, every generation of Packers fans has seen the team reach the mountaintop. They have also been witnesses to some of the best quarterback play the sport has ever seen. Here is a look at each Super Bowl-winning signal-caller in franchise history.

BART STARR

The best way to describe the “it” qualities needed in a great quarterback – leadership, guts, confidence – is to mention the name “Bart Starr.” The unquestioned leader of the 1960s Green Bay Packers dynasty, he is remembered for winning the first two Super Bowls (and Super Bowl MVP awards) and the most famous quarterback sneak in league history. Starr, who was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1977, was draft ed by the Packers in 1956 in the 17th round. By 1960, he had taken hold of starting duties and didn’t let go for more than a decade. Under Starr’s leadership, the Packers became pro football’s first dynasty. Until Tom Brady’s recent run, Starr was the only quarterback with five league championship rings. He retired with a 9-1 postseason record and the NFL’s highest career completion percentage (57.4 percent). The most iconic moment of Starr’s career came in the 1967 NFL Championship Game. Forever known as the Ice Bowl for its whitened field and sub-zero temperatures, the game was a pivotal point in professional football history. On the line was a berth in the second “Super Bowl,” then a novel concept for a championship game against the AFL. An emerging power, the Dallas Cowboys came to Lambeau Field looking to dismantle the Packers. The soon-to-be-named America’s Team was on its way to do so when running back Dan Reeves connected with Lance Rentzel on a 50-yard touchdown pass. The trick play and extra point gave Dallas a 17-14 lead to open the fourth quarter.
