Top 15 Worst Players in Green Bay Packers History

The Green Bay Packers are one of the finest professional franchises in all of North American professional sports. No National Football League team has been as successful as the Packers since the start of big-time pro football in the United States. The Super Bowl trophy that is handed to the winners of the final game of every NFL season is named after Vince Lombardi, the famous head coach who guided the Packers to glory during the beginning of the Super Bowl era. Every time that one steps foot into Lambeau Field, the home of the Packers, that person is walking into a football museum.

It should come as no surprise to anybody who knows about the history of the club that some of the greatest NFL players to ever wear a jersey suited up for the Packers. Brett Favre was undeniably a “gunslinger” who made plenty of regrettable throws during his career. Favre is also an all-time great who will be enshrined in the Hall of Fame at some point before the end of the current decade. Amazingly, Favre's replacement may even be better at the position. Aaron Rodgers has been a joy to watch for casual football fans who have no ties to the Packers. He also has a reservation for his name in Canton.

With all of that said, no entity gets everything right. That holds true for even a storied franchise such as the Packers. It may be difficult for some to believe, but there was a time when it seemed as if the Packers would never land a quarterback who could lead the team to playoff appearances and Super Bowl championships. Things were once so bad for the Green Bay, in fact, that the team could have been responsible for the worst draft bust in NFL history. Players such as Ryan Leaf and JaMarcus Russell ended up overshadowing that draft bust, but the pick was nevertheless a disaster for the club.

The hope with any NFL running back is that he will be able to at least help a team gain positive yards with the goal of earning first downs. Michael Haddix not only failed to achieve this mission throughout his NFL career. Haddix was, per Jeff Pearlman of Deadspin, historically bad as a pro:

"Averaged three yards per carry for his career, the worst in NFL history for anyone with more than 500 runs."

1 Tony Mandarich 

Congratulations go out to Tony Mandarich for being known as one of the biggest NFL Draft busts in the history of the league. Mandarich entered the 1989 NFL Draft as arguably the most-hyped rookie offensive lineman to emerge from college. It would be a massive understatement to say that Mandarich failed to live up to those advertisements. After not starting a single game during his rookie campaign, Mandarich was in the Green Bay lineup for 31 starts over the following two seasons. That was to be the end of his run with the Packers. At least the Packers didn't pass on guys such as Barry Sander, Derrick Thomas, or Deion Sanders to take Mandarich. Oh. Right.
