Green Bay Packers: Who to Watch in Legendary Family Night Scrimmage

It's that time of year again, Packer Nation.

The 11th annual Packers Family Night, which started as a glorified scrimmage is now more of a spectacle and a treat for all of the loyal and faithful fans of the Packers around the country. It would be hard to depict Family Night as a scrimmage by looking at the jam-packed and capacity crowd filling the seats of Lambeau.

For those without tickets, Family Night will be televised live Saturday night on local networks in Wisconsin, and NFL Network will be showing the scrimmage on Sunday night starting at 8 EST/7 CST.

Every year during Family Night there is a player who performs above and beyond what is expected of him, and that single performance excels him to a likewise better-than-expected season.

Darren Sharper back in 2000 scored on an interception return, and he never looked back as he finished his career in Green Bay as one of the best Packer defensive backs of all time.

Or 2004 when Brett Favre and Donald Driver put on a spectacle to remember, which is now one of the most decorated QB to WR connections in Green Bay history.

Anyone remember 2008 Family Night? Brett Favre had previously retired but decided to come out of retirement on the day of the Packers Family Night scrimmage, and Aaron Rodgers made his appearance as the Packers starting QB for the very first time. The rest, as they say, is history.

Who will it be this year to dazzle and amaze Lambeau Field on Saturday night? There is no telling who it may be, but let's take a look at a few of the candidates.
