Green Bay Packers

GREEN BAY PACKERS HISTORY & INFORMATION

2009 Green Bay Packers Football Preview:

The Green Bay Packers are excited about the 2009 football season. That is because they head into the new season without any talk about quarterback controversy; this year’s Pack team belongs to Aaron Rodgers. Rodgers showed great promise early in 2008, so Green Bay just has to get him playing at that level again to improve on their 6-10 record from ’08. Other bright spots for the Packers include; running back Ryan Grant, tight end Jermichael Finley and defensive lineman Aaron Kampman. If those players and a few of their veterans can get things going in the right direction, then expect the Packers to make noise in the NFC. Green Bay already has one of the toughest home crowds in the NFL and if the Pack have a shot then Lambeau Field will be rocking. No other NFC team wants to go through Lambeau in December or January, so Green Bay needs to win early and make that a reality. 2009 could be the year the Packers put it all together.

GREEN BAY PACKERS INFORMATION:

The Green Bay Packers play football in the North Division of the National Football Conference (NFC) of the National Football League (NFL). Earl Lambeau and George Calhoun founded the franchise in 1919. Hall of Famer Vince Lombardi, who led the Packers to five league championships, coached the team in the 1960′s. After Lombardi left the team in 1968, the Green Bay Packers would have little success until the arrival of Brett Favre in 1992. Favre has started every game for Green Bay since his first start, an NFL record of 257 consecutive games. Favre has made his team a perennial playoff fixture, leading them to a Super Bowl win in 1996. As his career seemed to fade, the Green Bay Packers struggled until this season, when Favre suddenly is playing like he did a decade ago. You couldn’t write a more exciting sports story than what we see happening in the NFL this year in Green Bay!

The Green Bay Packers play their home games at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. The stadium is the most well known in the league and the longest occupied stadium by any team in the NFL. It seats almost 73,000 spectators. Green Bay Packers fans are some of the best. The area around the stadium turns into a city of tailgaters. You can really sense the community support at a packer game – the team is the only non-profit community owned team in major pro sports in America.
