Why Jerry Kramer is not in the Pro Football Hall of Fame is a question that is continually asked, but not answered.
As one of the smartest Packers players during the 1960s, Kramer was also one of the nastiest and toughest on the field. How many pictures have you seen from that era of the famous Packers sweep that has Kramer pulling and blowing open holes for Jimmy Taylor and Paul Hornung?
We shouldn’t even have to bring up the block he laid on Dallas Cowboy Jethro Pugh in the NFL Championship Game in 1967 … and the hole he helped open so that quarterback Bart Starr could dive into the end zone for the winning touchdown.
Kramer continues to be an Ambassador for the Packers organization – always mingling with fans and participating in a variety of events.
Yes, he’s much loved and appreciated … and our hope is that he is once and for all inducted into the Hall of Fame.
