Packers players - maybe not top 10, but we'll take the trophy

Accolades are great, but championships are better.

Today’s announcement that three Packers, Clay Matthews (19), Charles Woodson (16), and Aaron Rodgers (11), were named to the NFL’s top 100 players of 2011 was satisfying and is a great tribute to those individuals.
However, it’s got to be even more gratifying to the other players, coaches and administrators who are a part of this great organization.
Individual recognition is awesome for these players – they certainly love being recognized by their peers and fans.
But this is just a list, a popularity contest, if you will.
We all know that lists are great, but we also know that they mean absolutely nothing.
What matters are championships. It’s a team sport made up of individuals. 
Sure, we’re happy with the accolades, but we’re way more impressed with the George Halas and Vince Lombardi trophies, thank you.
