Editor’s note: As part of NFL’s Greatest Quarterback, fans will decide the best QB in each team’s history.
Arnie Herber: Herber was one of the league’s great early passers. He led the NFL in passing yards in 1932, 1934 and 1936. Herber and wide receiver Don Hutson were the league’s first great quarterback-wide receiver combination.
The Packers won four NFL Championships with Herber, and three of those came with the Regis University product under center. Herber was a three-time All-Pro and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1966.
Bart Starr: The way Starr’s career started, you would have no idea he would go on to be one of the league’s all-time great quarterbacks. He was a 17th-round pick out of Alabama in 1956 and wouldn’t become Green Bay’s full-time starter until 1960.
Starr was a four-time All-Pro, five-time NFL Champion, two-time Super Bowl champion, two-time Super Bowl MVP and the 1966 NFL MVP. Starr had a 9-1 playoff record and his career completion percentage was an NFL-record 57.4 percent when he retired.
Brett Favre: It might be easier listing the NFL records that Favre doesn’t hold. He won three straight NFL MVPs from 1995 to 1997 and made 11 Pro Bowls during his 20-year career.
The Packers made four NFC Championship games under Favre and two Super Bowls. The Packers beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XXXI in 1996.
Aaron Rodgers: Since being the No. 24 overall pick in 2005, Rodgers has gone on to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in the game. The 2011 MVP is a three-time Pro Bowler and he led the Packers to a Super Bowl championship in 2010.
