A.J. Hawk sees how hard it is to name a Packers 'Mount Rushmore'

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Mar 3, 2014

Who are the four most important figures in Green Bay Packers history?  Linebacker A.J. Hawk gave his take Monday on NFL Network - though not without struggles.

"I'd put Nitschke, Bart Starr...(showing indecisiveness)...and then I'd feel bad," he said.

Hawk added his Super Bowl MVP teammate.

"Aaron's on there, no doubt. No question I'd put Aaron on there. Aaron's the best player in the world."

Finally, as his fourth, he added "My fourth...I'd have to give it to the late, great Reggie White."

Hawk recognized, however, the incredible challenge of isolating the four most important figures in a history filled with guys like Curly Lambeau, Vince Lombardi, Don Hutson, Brett Favre, etc.

"We'd need 30 Mount Rushmores for the Packers franchise."
