This season marks the 100th anniversary of the Green Bay Packers. Founded in 1919, the franchise—which was originally independent—officially joined the National Football League way back in 1921. Over the course of the team’s century-long existence, thousands of players have donned a Packers uniform. No matter how long, historic, and storied a team and its player might be, there are just 99 jersey numbers to pick from.

In honor of the 100th anniversary (and because we don’t have many compelling things to say about this weekend’s match-up with the Denver Broncos), we figured it was high time to comb through the extensive team archives and boldly declare THE BEST PACKERS PLAYER to wear each of the 99 uniform options. Some numbers—like number 1, for example—were only worn by one player. Other numbers have been worn by numerous Green Bay greats (we’re looking you, number 80). A few players even wore a Packers jersey in a back-up capacity before finding success with another team. It’s also worth mentioning that Johnny “Blood” McNally had like five different numbers during his time with the Packers.

Regardless of how many players wore specific jersey numbers or how good there might’ve been, there can only be one player from the team’s 100-year history to be the best to have ever worn it. After loads of research and hours of internal debate, here’s our list of the best Packers player to wear each and every jersey number. For the sake of argument (and, in some cases, to show you just how dire the choices were for a few numerals), we’ve also added a runner-up in parenthesis when applicable.
