Packers.com's Cliff Christl did a nice retrospective piece on: WHO ARE THE GREATEST PACKERS WHO NEVER WERE?

He listed 5 guys. I only recall seeing two of them... Eddie Lee Ivery and Lynn Dickey. As Christl said, both would've been greats but Lynn Dickey wasn't too shabby even as a parking meter in the pocket.

There have been many guys over the years I've felt cheated out of seeing blossom with the Packers over the years.

Eddie Lee Ivery was a guy I wrote a song about back when I was a kid... Ellis and Ivery side by side in the Packers backfield. Pure cheese, but I was living in Wisconsin and but a wee lad.

Tim Lewis, Jermichael Finley, Terrence Murphy, Nick Collins, Sterling Sharpe, LeRoy Butler(wanted all the years we could get), Justin Harrell, Mark D'Onofrio, Robbie Bosco, Jeremy Thompson, Desmond Bishop are just some of the names that come to mind. I would've added Sherrod but hoping we finally get a chance at seeing him this season.

I remember Mark D'Onofrio. Tore his hammy. Second rounder.

I'd have to say Eddie Lee Ivery, although he did have a pretty good career. Tim Lewis, Sterling Sharpe. Terrence Murphy was lost before he did anything. With him, we didn't even know what we missed.

I was REALLY excited about Robbie Bosco as a kid. But we'd have never had him if he hadn't already shredded his shoulder. I think we got him in the third. Dude dislocated his shoulder in college, kept playing all year with it. At QB. Great player, just didn't have an arm left by the time we got him.

Gerry Berry was another one with the neck thing. He was another Darren Sharper, as far as skill set.

Terrence Murphy


Terrence Murphy was one that I remember really getting excited about only for it to come crashing to an end on that neck injury/discovery of spinal stenosis in Carolina.

I'm pretty sure the week before he had scored his first NFL touchdown only to have it called back on some bullshit penalty; I think it was illegal man down field on Tauscher.

Definitely Eddie Lee Ivery.

He was something special.

I admire him also for making a career despite the killer injury.

(And, though he's not a Packer, Gale Sayers. I'm convinced that, had he not blown out the knee, he would have been the greatest ever.)

Sterling Sharpe was our number one highlight for 28 friggin' years. (This is known as the "drought") He was AWESOME, imo.

Sterling Sharpe may still make the HOF depite the shortened career...had he not gotten hurt he would have ended up with Rice-Like numbers.

Sadly, for Sterling's sake, he was known as a first class prick so the odds he's voted in aren't real strong. That shouldn't play a role in voting, but it does.

For me it's Sterling Sharpe, LeRoy Butler and Terrence Murphy the most... Nick Collins probably should be there as well, but I don't know... I guess I'm just at peace with that one for some strange reason. I think Sharpe, Butler and Collins could of become locks for the NFL HOF, but aren't because of their injuries.


Murphy is a guy I barely ever hear about because Jennings was able to come in and play with away, which made people forget about Murphy.... but when Murphy came in, he seemed extremely raw talent... I think it would of taken him at least 3 years to get everything down and I might even guess they full break out might not come until year four... but his raw physical potential... it was a lot higher than any of these other WRs we have gotten, higher than Jennings, Nelson and Cobb. I felt like the kid had a ton of potential, if he was a hard worker and stayed out of trouble he was a lock for being a future #1 no questions asked type WR and feel like that was all taken away from the Packers.


I don't know I kind of disagree with Jermichael Finley and Jeremy Thompson being on this list... I guess Finley the first time because he was amazing before his first injury, but he also had a season where he was mentally off, and wasn't on the same page with Rodgers and other off the field drama stuff, so I guess I feel like it wasn't all injury with him.

Thompson, when healthy, had amazing movement skills for his size... and looked like an all star in shorts and then disappeared when the pads came on... I think that was simply not being mentally physical/tough... and injury did take him, but even if he stayed healthy, I'm not sure he would of become more than a ST/back-up guy.

TheKanataThrilla (5h) : Salt mine. Love it.
TheKanataThrilla (5h) : The refs kept that game close. We should have blown them out early.
