    Green Bay Packers History

    If it wasn’t for the Indian Packing Company the Green Bay franchise may have never got the name Packers. It all began in 1919 when founder Earl ‘Curly’ Lambeau met with the company to discuss sponsoring the team so they could get uniforms, and shortly after the deal was reached they got awarded membership for the 1921 NFL season. 

    The Indian Packing Company was only for the first two years of their existence and by 1921, the franchise got a new sponsor, another packing company this time it was ACME Packing Co who would agree to sponsor the team. However, the Packers cut ties with the company within the first week of the NFL season. And since then, the name ‘Packers’ have stuck throughout their 99 years of existence. 

    Lambeau coached the Packers from 1919-1949, led them to one of their most successful era’s, as the franchise won six NFL Championships (1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939 and 1944) including their first three-peat (1929-1931), but in the 1930s that set up the foundations for future success as they won four NFL titles (1930, 1931, 1936 and 1939). 

    When Lambeau retired in 1949, the Packers would go through five different coaches from 1953 to 1958, before they eventually found the right one signing Vince Lombardi as head coach for the 1959 season. Lombardi was an instant success as he turned around a 1-10-1 record in the previous year to a 7-5 record in his first year in charge. 

    But that was only the beginning as by 1960 he led them to the Championship game, however, they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. A season later he led them to their second consecutive Championship game and instantly made amends as they were crowned NFL champions for the first time since 1944 after they defeated New York Giants. 

    This was the start of their second successful era, as they went back-to-back in 1962 defeating the Giants again. However, the best was yet to come as Lombardi then completed a three peat claiming the 1965, 1966 and 1967 titles. 

    Although completing a three peat is no easy feat, the 1966 and 1967 titles are that of significance as they would become known as the Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II. Lombardi became the first coach to win the Super Bowl, and in a way to honor him the Super Bowl trophy was named after him. 

    The Packers would endure a 29 year drought before they could be called Super Bowl champions again as Mike Holmgren (who was coach from 1992 to 1998, and made two Super Bowls) lead them to their first Super Bowl victory since 1967, when they won Super Bowl XXI over the New England Patriots for the 1996 season.

    After claiming the Super Bowl XXI, Holmgren coached them to their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance however, they went down to the Denver Broncos. It would take another long drought this time 14 years (even though they made the playoffs in 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2009) before the Packers could get their hands on their fourth Vince Lombardi trophy when they defeated Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, with Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers being the MVP. 

    For the 2010s, the Packers were one of the most successful franchises as they made the playoffs seven times between 2010 and 2019, with only 2017 and 2018 the years they didn’t make the postseason.

    2020 saw the second season of the Rodgers pairing with head coach Matt LaFleur and after a disappointing NFC Championship game against the 49ers, they were hoping to go one better.

    Things didn’t look great when the Packers used their first round pick to draft a quarterback rather than offensive weapons that Rodgers could use. However, whether it is related or not, Rodgers ended up having one of the best quarterback seasons on record, leading Green Bay to a 13-3 record, top of the NFC, and winning his third MVP.

    The Packers easily dismissed the Rams in the Divisional Round but were undone by Tom Brady, Tampa Bay and their pesky defense. Now the team needs to bolster the roster once again and give Rodgers the pieces he needs to thrive.
