Packer add trio to team’s Hall of Fame

One of the most storied organizations in all of sports expanded its Hall of Fame on Saturday, with the addition of two players (well, a player and a kicker), and a former board member and team president.

Via FOX 11, the new members are defensive end Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, kicker Chris Jacke, and Emil Fischer.

The man known as KGB still holds the the franchise sack record with 74., in nine seasons with the team.  Jacke kicked for the team from 1989 through 1996, a Super Bowl-wining season.  He is third on the team’s all-time scoring list, with 820 points.

Fischer was instrumental in the first sale of stock by the Packers, helping the team stay in Green Bay during otherwise turbulent times in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

    The Packers are a Hall of Fame franchise.

    Congrats to all of them. KGB was 1 heck of a 7th round draft choice – they don’t get a lot better than that late in the draft.

    Oops 5th round pick, still very good value for KGB who was really good for several years in early 2000′s

    Jacke deserved to get in just for the mullet.

    Best Jacke moment was him hitting a 48 yarder for the win versus Tampa Bay in 1989 to keep them in the playoff hunt. It might not seem like a big now, but that was still in the era where a 50 yarder wasn’t really considered a sure thing. The Packers had also been bad for a long time, so as a fan the assumption was that he’d miss.

    I remember jumping up and banging my knee on the table when he hit that one.

    My Dad got to hold Chris Jacke’s beer for him …once.

    Congratulations to all of them, but wow, the Packers’ career sack leader has 74? Not known for their pass rushers, are they? Jared Allen has 74 in his Vikings career and he’s sixth on their list, behind Carl Eller (130), Jim Marshall (127), John Randle (114), Alan Page (108.5), and Chris Doleman (96.5). Just sayin’.

    The accolades of the individual does not matter in a team sport. What matters is how that team performs, which is most often measured in championship (we have 13 by the way). Sure, the viks have had lots of athletes who have performed well individually over the years, but they have not been able to translate those into championships. Just sayin’.

    And the wind that day was ridiculous! When he kicked it, it didn’t look like it had a chance but the wind moved it right between the uprights! That was the year that really brought me into football and the Packers. 10-6, the season of “after further review, the Bears still suck”, every game came down the wire… Almost took San Fran at Lambeau, late fourth quarter fumble unfortunaltely, but this was pre-cap era and San Fran was far superior… The year of the Magic Man, great season!

    If this was a heavyweight fight, Spielman`s corner would be throwing in the towel.

    that’s it?
    Koren Robinson fits in there somewhere if that’s what it takes to be appreciated as an individual h.o.f.er in gb.

    Willie Davis like Deacon Jones would have lots of sacks if they’d kept track of that statistic all through the 60′s. As most fans know.
