I am shocked that the Packers are on this list but the dreadful Redskins aren't!

I agree. Want to end your career as a coach or player? Join Danny Snyder's Riders and you are sure to retire in short order.

The Packers are on because of weather and area. I think most players would want to play for the team but to suffer miserably in that remote area offsets any desire to play for the Packers...

To be honest, players today are spoiled and Green Bay just can't spoil them way other major NFL cities can.

Exactly! Danny Boy is a giant kick to the groin of any coach or player's career!

82 players voted, so the 6% who voted for the Packers consists of 4.92 players if my math is correct. I'm not surprised by the Green Bay vote though. If you grew up on the coasts or the south, of course you're not going to want to move someplace known as a tiny city in the tundra.

Good point but then how do you differentiate between the Raiders and the Raiders East (Redskins)?

I'm not really. Wisconsin has a high income tax, I've heard that plays a part, weather, not a metropolitan area, pretty much a strict routine, rules, without a great deal of leeway. The players they have better buy in and it is home grown. Of the current 53, I think 48 started with the Packers. They are a true draft and develop team, in the top 10 youngest rosters every year. When I think of some of the players on other teams, no way would they be on this team.

The Raiders are on because of there decade or more of ineptitude. I assume the Redskins are on for similar reasons although they have had a year or 2 of playoff appearances...

To me, they are two of the same over the last 20 years. If anything, the Raiders are a bit ahead of the 'Skins, they did have a Super Bowl appearance 14 years ago! And I'd take the Ca Bay Area over DC any day! Yeah, I really hate Danny Boy Snyder! My fan hood has turn into a strong hatred of the 'Skins as long as he's the owner!
