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.
2021 was a year of questions for the Green Bay Packers as quarterback Aaron Rodgers future with the team was called in question almost weekly. Rodgers went on to win the MVP, as he led the Packers to another playoff appearance before once again losing to San Fransisco.
If you are a fan of the Green Bay Packers, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2022-23 season. Do the Green Bay Packers have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2023?
Our experts will provide an analysis on the Packers’ chances closer to the start of the 2022-23 season. In the meantime, you can check out our thoughts on the team before the 2021-22 season started:
After a devastating loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and an offseason filled with questions surrounding Aaron Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers look to once again contend for a championship while they still have Aaron Rodgers.
The Packers remained one of the best teams in the NFL last year going 13-3 and securing the number 1 seed in 2020. With Aaron Rodgers at the helm, it is always Super Bowl or bust but have they improved enough to do the same and compete in an NFC which has undoubtedly gotten better?
The Packers front office has been the model of consistency with prolonged success through much of the franchise’s history. However, their policy with free agency and resigning players has rubbed franchise quarterback Aaron Rodgers the wrong way, with Rodgers speaking out during the offseason. Furthermore, Rodgers reportedly has a complicated relationship with head coach Matt Lafleur, who was brought in to replace the long tenured Mike McCarthy.
Matt LaFleur is a first time head coach with the Packers and started his tenure in 2019 where he led the Packers to a 13-3 record and a loss in the NFC Championship game against the 49ers. Last year LaFleur repeated that effort leading the Packers again to a 13-3 record and to the NFC Championship where they lost again to the eventual Super Bowl Champions.
LaFluer is an offensive minded coach who first rose to prominence as the quarterback coach of the Atlanta Falcons in a year where Matt Ryan became MVP. From there LaFleur became the offensive coordinator for the LA Rams.
In his one year tenure he led the team to score 478 points which is the 4th most in Rams franchise history. After a one year stint with the Titans, LaFleur landed at the Packers. LaFleur’s offense is simple and focuses on the run to set up the pass, which has made things easier for Rodgers who won the NFL MVP last season.
This offseason, the Packers have done almost nothing in regards to players to make their team better. This was likely a part of why Rodgers was frustrated. However, the Packers did retain much of their talent and are returning with a team that did have the best record in the NFL and only lost the NFC Championship by 5 points. This doesn’t build much confidence though as the NFC has gotten a lot better while the Packers remain stagnant.
Offensively, Aaron Rodgers and Matt LaFleur have created a top 5 offense with a strong passing game and sneakily one of the best run games in the league. The Packers had the 8th best run game in the league behind Aaron Jones and AJ Dillon (who famously went viral for his huge quads).
The Packers did lose Jamaal Williams who was decent at running back but his loss shouldn’t affect the Packers too much. The Packers receiving core remains essentially the same with Davante Adams being the only real name of note. The rest of the wide receiving group for the Packers is average and interchangeable. The same can be said for the Tight Ends.
The Packers do have a solid offensive line, which obviously was a big part of the success of the running game. The Packers actually had the 2nd best PFF blocking ranking in 2020 and is led by the enigma in David Baktiari. The offensive line does have questions popping up with Corey Linsley departing and question marks with the right tackle position.
This is worrying as the Packers will be facing some of the best pass rushers in the league this year with games against TJ Watt, Nick Bosa, Cam Jordan, Aaron Donald, Khalil Mack and Myles Garrett. This would be a tough lineup for the best lines and is especially tough for a unit that looks unlikely to repeat its previous top form.
The biggest change to the Packers was within the defense where they hired Joe Barry as defensive coordinator. Although last season the Packers were statistically a top 10 defense, they were inconsistent and got burned during the NFC Championship game where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers scored 31 points.
Joe Barry has been an assistant head coach and linebackers coach with one of the defenses in the league in the LA Rams and should help build consistency in this Packers unit. With no key signings or additions the Packers defense should be good enough to do well in the regular season. Is it enough to beat a team like the Buccaneers?
The Packers re-signed Kevin King who was famously burnt repeatedly by the Buccaneers receiving core in the NFC Championship and was blamed by many fans. This signing was a head scratcher as better players were available for cheaper in free agency.
The Packers will be running a 3-4 scheme this year under Joe Barry and will be likely to use more zone defense with the Packers mirroring the Rams defense. The Packers look like this will be a top 10 unit despite their inadequacies and lack of change, especially with Joe Barry at the helm. It just remains to be seen how well this defense holds up in the playoffs.
