Starr & Lombardi — Time Out

We know it’s been a long while since we’ve updated the blog here, and we apologize for the lack of Packers historical photos. There has been a lot going on this Fall, and if you throw in a general case of Blog Burn-Out, that factors in as well. We are back, though, and will try to resume some semblance of regularity in sharing our Green Bay Packers historical collection with you. Today, we have a photo that is not of the best overall quality, but the subject matter is worthy of posting. Quarterback Bart Starr meets with coach Vince Lombardi on the sidelines during the time out of a home game. We never tire of seeing photos of these two giants of Packerville.

Milwaukee Action Against the Rams

Today we see some action from a game at Milwaukee’s County Stadium in the mid-Sixties. Fighting off the Los Angeles Ram blockers are Packers’ linebackers Ray Nitschke (#66), and Lee Roy Caffey (#60), among other unidentified Green Bay defenders. Ironically, the Packers would leave Milwaukee to play all their home games in Green Bay after the 1994 season, which was also the year the Rams would leave Los Angeles for St. Louis.

Back to the Blog, Post-Vikings

Sorry for the month-long break from the Packerville blog. Some of it was because of time spent in Europe, and the rest was due to general laziness and trying to get back into the NFL season after missing the first two weeks. The game last Monday night in Minneapolis was a rough one for all Packer fans to stomach. We’re here to provide some historical perspective on the subject, showing that even a great Hall of Famer like Jim Taylor had his rough moments with the team across the western border. The other bit of history that makes us feel better is that the Vikings’ overall NFL championship trophy case is completely empty. And hopefully, it will stay that way for a long, long time.
