With 83 days left until the start of the Green Bay Packers NFL season, our countdown to the big day, Sunday, Sept. 11, when the Green Bay Packers travel to Jacksonville to take on the upstart Jaguars, we will focus on the the number that represents the days remaining … today it’s #83.
by John Maxymuk. The book, which chronicles every Packers jersey number provides a strong background of information about Packers players and their jersey numbers up to that point in time.
Our last focus, was on wide receiver extraordinaire Sterling Sharpe.
Today, our work is cut out for us … try to think of two players who have worn #83 for the Packers and you will understand.
At 83, there is one I thought of off the the top of my head – wide receiver John J.J. Jefferson … and maybe Tom Crabtree.
But those aren’t the two players that Maxymuk places as his tops. At #83, he gives us none other than John Martinkovic (who? you might ask?).
So, let’s take a closer look at the reasons why Maxymuk likes this guy.
Next: Who is John Martinkovic?
