Green Bay Packers: Ahman Green (2003)
The Green Bay Packers have had quite an array of talent at the quarterback position. From Pro Football Hall of Famers Arnie Herber, Bart Starr and Brett Favre to prolific Aaron Rodgers, now a member of the New York Jets.
The team has also had their share of star running backs. Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung are enshrined in Canton. John Brockington was the 1971 NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year. Dorsey Levens was a steady performer for eight seasons with the club. These days, Aaron Jones has made his mark in the league.
There was also talented Ahman Green. His career began in Seattle in 1998, but he was dealt to Green Bay via trade in 2000. He wound up playing a total of eight seasons with the team, was named to four Pro Bowls and is the franchise’s all-time leading rusher with 8,322 yards.
In his fourth season with the club, Green totaled 355 carries for 1,883 yards. The latter number is tied for 10th in NFL history in terms of a single-season performance. A total of 15 of those attempts resulted in touchdowns. He rushed for 66 yards and two scores in the overtime playoff win over Seatle. Green rushed for 156 yards in the divisional round, albeit in a losing effort at Philadelphia.
