Bart Starr, Brett Favre, and Aaron Rodgers are considered three of the best QBs in NFL history. The Green Bay Packers were lucky to have them lead the team to all four of their Super Bowls (Starr in 1967 and 1968, Favre in 1997, and Rodgers in 2010).

This will be the first year the Packers do not have Aaron Rodgers under center since 2008. It's too early to tell how well Jordan Love will do, but change is never a bad thing.

Starr's 1966, Favre's 1995, and Rodgers' 2010 seasons are among their best. From Starr only throwing three interceptions, Favre throwing for 4,413 yards, to Rodgers leading the Packers to a Super Bowl win, each season was monumental in each of their historic careers.

Now it's time to share why each season was the best for each QB.

Bart Starr

The 1966 season ended with a Super Bowl victory over the Kansas City Chiefs 35-10. The Packers ended the season with a record of 12-2. Before beating the Chiefs, the Packers played the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Championship game and won 34-27.

Bart Starr finished this season with a record of 11-2 as the starting QB. He threw for 2,257 yards along with 14 touchdowns and three interceptions. Starr also had a completion percentage of 62.2%.

Starr won the Most Valuable Player award this year. He finished in second place in 1962 and 1964 in the AP MVP voting. Now, even though he had other seasons where he threw for more yards, touchdowns, and a better completion percentage, he finished with a 105.0 QB rating, his highest.

Also, this was Starr's 10th season playing for the Packers. He was 32 at the time. Starr did lead the Packers to three straight championships before the first ever AFL-NFL World Championship (Super Bowl) game from 1960-1962. Starr was a star when playing QB for the Packers.

Brett Favre

Brett Favre won three straight MVP awards from 1995-1997. Favre could throw the ball with a lot of velocity and wowed fans around the world.

In the 1995 season, Favre threw for 4,413 yards, the highest of his career. He added 38 touchdowns with 13 interceptions. With a 99.5 QB rating (his second highest behind the 2009 season with the Minnesota Vikings), the Packers were one of the hottest teams in the league.

Even though the season ended with a conference championship loss to the Dallas Cowboys, this was definitely a season to remember for Packers fans.

The 1995 season was the start of Favre's three straight MVP awards.

Aaron Rodgers

Thrilling, exciting, and tremendous are three words to describe the 2010 season, the last time the Packers won the Super Bowl.

Aaron Rodgers finished with 3,922 yards and threw for 28 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. This was the start of the Packers' success for years to come with Rodgers at the helm. The Packers had such a tremendous 10+ successful years by constantly making the playoffs.

To pick a favorite out of these three seasons is hard, but they are at the top of the best Packers seasons in franchise history. The Packers were in good hands with each of these three players at QB.

Let's hope Jordan Love can lead the team to victory for years to come.
