The Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II - Vince Lombardi’s final game as head coach of the team – followed by the crumbling of Green Bay’s dynasty. It lasted for more than two decades. The team’s dark ages through the 1970s and 1980s is well documented.
That was until Ron Wolf, Mike Holmgren, Brett Favre, and Reggie White arrived at 1265 Lombardi Avenue.
The Packers returned to the big game the next year against the Denver Broncos, Super Bowl XXXI – a game that turned out to be the Packers only loss in the NFL’s championship.
Then came 2010 and Super Bowl XLV and the magical journey to the team’s fourth super Bowl championship – this one over the Pittsburgh Steelers. New stars in Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, Jordy Nelson, Greg Jennings, B.J. Raji, Nick Collins and a young running back by the name of James Starks led this Packers team to one of the more improbable Super Bowls in many years.
And because of that, we conclude our series looking at the Green Bay Packers today – and all of the Super bowls in which this team has been a participant.
As we officially head into the offseason once more after the clock ticks down to zero on today’s Super Bowl XLVIII, the confetti settles to the ground, and all the platitudes are given, we will once again turn our eyes to “next year.” Of course before that, we will enjoy the Combine, Free Agency, the Draft, the OTAs, and training camp.
However, before we get to all that, we’ve got to enjoy this Super Bowl Sunday.
There are a ton of videos associated with this game. Here are a few … enjoy …
