This list chronicles Green Bay Packers in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Founded in 1919 by coach, player, and future Hall of Fame inductee Curly Lambeau and sports and telegraph editor George Whitney Calhoun, the Green Bay Packers football organization has become one of the most successful professional football teams, having won a total of 13 professional American football championships; nine NFL Championships and four Super Bowls. The 13 championships is the most by any team in the NFL.
The Packers have also recorded 18 NFL divisional titles, eight NFL conference championships, and the second most regular season and overall victories of any NFL franchise, behind the Chicago Bears.
In 1963, the Pro Football Hall of Fame was created to honor the history of professional football and the individuals who have greatly influenced it. Since the charter induction class of 1963, 26 individuals who have played or coached for the Packers have been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Of the 26 inductees, 21 made their primary contribution to football with the Packers, while the other five only contributed a minor portion of their career to the Packers. Of the original 17 individuals inducted in 1963, four spent the major part of their career with the Green Bay Packers. This includes the founder Curly Lambeau, offensive tackle Cal Hubbard, the 1941 and 1942 Most Valuable Player Don Hutson, and Johnny (Blood) McNally.
The first two decades of the Hall of Fame's existence saw 17 Packers enshrined, including the only inductee who was not a player for the Packers, Vince Lombardi. Coaching the Packers from 1959 to 1967, Lombardi led the team to five NFL Championships, including the first two Super Bowls, and an overall winning percentage of .754. The most recent Packer to be inducted was three time NFL MVP Brett Favre in 2016.
Hall of Fame membersEdit
| Curly Lambeau
In 1919, Lambeau co-founded the Green Bay Packers and is credited with keeping football alive in Green Bay. He served 31 years as the team's only head coach through 1949, where he also played as a halfback from '19 through 1929 in which he pioneered the forward pass in professional football. He coached the Packers to six world championships over the span of three separate decades (1929-31, 1936, 1939, and 1944), sharing the distinction for most NFL championships with rival George Halas of the Chicago Bears. His coaching record was 212-106-21 (.656) with the Packers, making him one of seven coaches to cumulate more than 200 coaching victories in the NFL.
| Don Hutson
In an era when successful passing attacks were virtually unheard of, Don Hutson and the Green Bay Packers flourished via the air. Hutson is credited with creating many of the modern pass routes used in the NFL today. He was the dominant receiver of his day and is widely considered to be one of the greatest wide receivers in NFL history, holding almost all-important receiving records at the time of his retirement, several of which stood for decades.
