History of The Green Bay Packers What I Already Knew/ What I Wanted to Know When I started this project I already knew a little bit of history about the Green Bay Packers. I already knew that they had won the first and second ever Super Bowls. Since then they have been to three more Super Bowls and won two of them which puts them in third place tied with the New York Giants and the New England Patriots.

I began my research by developing some background on my topic on packers.com. That site gave me information such as when the Packers were founded and who founded them. It also talked about who sponsored their creation, where their name came from, and how the team developed over time. Then, I compared the information from that site with some other sources such as, bio.com, and time.com. I confirmed that all of the information was credible. Next, I began my search on historic coaches of the Packers. Through packers.com, I found a lot of information on the coaches that deserve to be remembered and make the team the legendary one it is today. Then, I started to search for statistics of the coaches. I looked for things such as the teams record for the seasons they coached and if they had won any championship titles. Finally, I shifted my attention to the legendary players throughout the history of the team. I found a lot of statistics of the players such as when they played, what position they played, and how many titles were won while they were on the team using websites such as jsonline.com, and bleacherreport.com. Finally I will focus on the players to try and determine who the best players …show more content…

They are considered one of the greatest dynasties in NFL history. The history of the Green Bay packers is legendary, and have been and always will be one of the greatest franchises in the history of the league. Some might even say the greatest. The Green Bay Packers were founded on August 11, 1919 in a small office of the old Green Bay Gazette building in downtown Green Bay, Wisconsin.

And they stayed there until September 29, 1957 when their new stadium was dedicated and named City Stadium. It was later renamed in 1965 to Lambeau Field. After two seasons their financial outlook was greatly improving. With their money they put up a fence surrounding the fields so they could now charge admission for the game. With the income from admissions they had erected two large portions of the bleachers by the middle of October, so fans wouldn't have to watch the action while standing on the sidelines

I want to start an NFL team and have the franchise based on the Philadelphia Eagles. There are many cities in the U.S. that are suitable for teams and there are a lot of things
Every person ever associated with football knows how the game is played. They know every rule, play, stat, and anything else that can be recorded. There was a certain one of these people, though, that stood out from the rest. This was a man by the name of Vince Lombardi. Most people generally know who Vince Lombardi was.
