With 40 days left until the start of the NFL season, our countdown to the big day continues.

Thursday, Sept. 4, is the day when the Green Bay Packers travel to Seattle to take on the Super Bowl Champion Seahawks.  

Over the  course of the next 40 days we focus on the number that represents the days remaining … and for today that number is 41 and 40, having missed my deadline for my post dedicated to #41.

Most recently, we took a look at number 42, John Brockington.

Today we focus in on numbers 41 and 40.

GBP1Here are two numbers that have not been worn all that well in Green Bay. At #41, you might remember the likes of Tom Flynn and Spencer Havner, but most likely have no idea that Jim BurrowMarvin Johnson and Bill Robinson even played for the Packers.

And how about #40?

Well, you may remember Tom Brown and Tony Fisher, but most likely don’t remember Dave Kopay or Bennie Aldridge.

So, today we focus on Eugene Robinson at #41 and Eddie Lee Ivery at #40

John Maxymuk, the author of “Packers by the Numbers: Jersey Numbers and the Players Who Wore them,” focuses in on Robinson and Ivery in his chapters on #41 and #40 for reasons that we will let him explain.

So, we start with Robinson … turn the page …
