To honor the coach, the NFL presents the winning Super Bowl team the Lombardi Trophy. The Packers of the 1960's featured stars like Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Ray Nitschke, and Herb Adderley. Lombardi left the team after the 1967 season and the team had little success until 1992 when General Manager Ron Wolf acquired quarterback Brett Favre.
Favre would stay with the Packers until 2007. During his years in Green Bay Favre went to nine Pro Bowls, won three NFL MVPs, was an integral part of 13 consecutive non-losing seasons, and led the Packers to victory in Super Bowl XXXI. Favre rewrote the record books for quarterbacks in the NFL but more significant than his stats is how he played. The gunslinger from Mississippi delighted fans with his boyish enthusiasm and his love for the game. Fans with Green Bay Packers tickets during the Favre era saw one of the NFL's most exiting players. Favre's 1997 Super Bowl winning Packers were coached by Mike Holmgren and featured one of the greatest defensive ends to ever step onto the gridiron, Reggie White.
The Packers were founded in 1919 and joined the NFL in 1921. The team sells Packers tickets to Lambeau Field (named after the team's founder Earl "Curly" Lambeau). The team is located in Green Bay, Wisconsin—the league's smallest market. The Packers are aligned in the North Division of NFC. The Green Bay Packers schedule features a home and an away game with each of its divisional rivals—the Chicago Bears, Detroit Lions, and Minnesota Vikings. The Packers rivalry with the Bears is the oldest in the NFL.
