Welcome to our sixth week of voting for GreenBay100, where the fans of the Green Bay Packers will choose the ultimate 53-man roster spanning the 100 seasons of Packers football.
This week, you get the chance to pick the best tackle in team history. The current Packers have had as many as five to six tackles on the roster at one time, but there is no guarantee how many we will carry.
Our criteria for making the ballot for the All-Time Team includes accomplishing one of these:
1) Becoming a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame
2) Becoming a member of the Packers Hall of Fame
3) Being named first-team All-Pro
4) Being named to the Pro Bowl
5) Ranking top five in the Packers all-time record book for applicable career or single-season statistics

Tackles have changed over the years, though their main functions as pass protectors and running lane pavers have not. Now, a 250-pound tackle like Cal Hubbard in the 1920's and 30's would be considered a pipsqueak compared to the modern behemoths of today. Additionally, there are no tackle statistics - only anecdotes Perhaps the best apples-to-apples comparison might be to see All-Pro and Pro Bowl comparisons for each player.
