Vince Lombardi would take over a broken, undisciplined Packer team in 1959 and turn it into an immediate winner. Between 1960 and 1967, Lombardi’s Packers would win nearly 80 percent of their games, including playoffs. A record of unequaled NFL success in any eight-year period of time.
No other NFL team has come close to this unbelievable success during a comparable time frame. Lombardi and the men who played in those glorious years, build a dynasty, the best in the history of the NFL.
This book describes the beginning of that amazing period. Starting with the first season in 1959, through 1961, when the Packers would once again become world champions, The Rise of the Packer Dynasty takes the reader back in time to experience some of this legendary magic.
