    Re: Wow Here's a shocker! Packers to retire #4

    I think retiring numbers is dumb.


    Ooooo, there can never be another player to wear #4, he was just too good.
    Rock out with your cock out!!!

    i actually like when the retire Great players jerseys... Its a way for the organization to honor the player who played his heart out and stuck with the team through out the years

    For some reason it bothers me, I just don't like it.
    So like 50 years down the road are players going to have to start wearing 3 digits?
    Or do we unretire the numbers when we start running out.
    You can still honor the player by putting them in a team HOF or Ring of Honor etc.

    The Green Bay Packers are wasting little time finding a way to show Brett Favre some love....

    Re: Wow Here's a shocker! Packers to retire #4

    The players who have their numbers retired were truly great and did alot for their franchise.
    There will never be players like them again

    Tark - brought excitement to the position, and brought the team to 3 superbowls
    Tinglehoff - one of the best linemen to ever play the game
    Jim Marshall, Alan Page, Carl Eller - Purple People Eaters

    'nuff said
    Cris Carter - Number 2 all time in almost every major receiving category behind the great Jerry Rice
    Korey Stringer - Died during practice, was a good linemen, but retiring his number was more out of respect for him rather than his playing ability.

    in over 45 years of existance, only 6 numbers have been retired from the vikings

    in over 85 years of existance, only 4 have been retired from the packers.

    I don't think we are in any risk of running out of numbers anytime soon unless we all of a sudden retire a bunch of numbers from the same position.

    Someday they will. Maybe not in our lifetime but they will eventually. There are only 99 numbers. That is not that many considering how many people are on the team.

    Maybe players will be referred to by signs. The player formally known as "#98"
