Super Bowl Sunday: Green Bay Packers win XXXI


After the Green Bay Packers won Super Bowl II - Vince Lombardi’s final game as head coach of the team – Green Bay’s dynasty crumbled 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 rest is history. The Green Bay Packers return to the Super Bowl took place in Super Bowl XXXI … their win over the New England Patriots and Bill Parcells.

And because of that, we continue 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.

You could turn on the NFL Network or FOX at any time today and watch the seemingly unending interviews, feature stories and so much more about the Seattle Seahawks and Denver Broncos.

Or you can turn here to lombardiave where we are going to be offering everything Packers today – all the Packers film we can find on the five Super Bowls the team has been in.

We continue with Super Bowl XXXI, and will offer up more videos as the day progresses. Enjoy these … it seems as if they were yesterday.
