    I’m a long time NFL fan. I’ve been watching the NFL since 1978 and I know just about everything about NFL history, including Super Bowl history – having watched many live and all the previous super bowls via NFL films. But I have to admit, although I know who Vince Lombardi is (the legendary coach of the Green Bay Packers and the subject of a Broadway play), I don’t know much about the stats behind the trophy.

    I believe that the NFL puts out a heavily guarded display of the Vince Lombardi trophy in the week that leads into the big game. There is a reason the championship trophy is named after this particular coach. The man had a lot to do. Like instilling professionalism, heart and fierce dedication in a frozen winter field full of young men. Like transforming a losing football team into a winning one in the span of a single season. And then leading that team to a series of history-making championships, including the first two Super Bowl titles.
