    The Packers have been blessed with a string of gifted running backs going back to Dorsey Levens, but Ahman Green was something special. He was a rare combination of power and speed plus some skills in catching balls when called upon. While his contributions t the Packer teams he played on may have been overshadowed by more egotistical prima donnas (one in particular), he was a decent guy who I recall talking to fans at Farve’s Steakhouse following a game at Lambeau when other players were in the private eating area or already home. I admired that he continued to compete after leaving the Packers even as his remarkable abilities faded and he became a mere mortal. We would do well to have another running back from the current roster mimic his ability and character. You belong with the all-time Packer greats.

    Best wishes to you and your family Ahman. Thank you for sharing your talents with us for 7 years.

    We appreciate the way you took care of your business and your professional approach during your years as a Packer. You have always been generous and nice to the fans. Your respect to Jim Taylor when you broke his record was very classy, and I would imagine Mr. Taylor was glad that his record was broken by a kind, humble man like you rather than a knucklehead with a huge ego. You let your play on the field do the talking for you, and it spoke volumes.

    Not only are you the Packers all time leading rusher, but you are also one of the very best trades of all time. Taking you away from Mike Holgren made it all that much sweeter. Hey Mike, how did Fred Vinson work out for you?

    Enjoy the next chapter in your life Ahman and thanks for the memories!
