      Green Bay Packers History

      If it wasn’t for the Indian Packing Company the Green Bay franchise may have never got the name Packers. It all began in 1919 when founder Earl ‘Curly’ Lambeau met with the company to discuss sponsoring the team so they could get uniforms, and shortly after the deal was reached they got awarded membership for the 1921 NFL season. 

      The Indian Packing Company was only for the first two years of their existence and by 1921, the franchise got a new sponsor, another packing company this time it was ACME Packing Co who would agree to sponsor the team. However, the Packers cut ties with the company within the first week of the NFL season. And since then, the name ‘Packers’ have stuck throughout their 99 years of existence. 

      Lambeau coached the Packers from 1919-1949, led them to one of their most successful era’s, as the franchise won six NFL Championships (1929, 1930, 1931, 1936, 1939 and 1944) including their first three-peat (1929-1931), but in the 1930s that set up the foundations for future success as they won four NFL titles (1930, 1931, 1936 and 1939). 

      When Lambeau retired in 1949, the Packers would go through five different coaches from 1953 to 1958, before they eventually found the right one signing Vince Lombardi as head coach for the 1959 season. Lombardi was an instant success as he turned around a 1-10-1 record in the previous year to a 7-5 record in his first year in charge. 

      But that was only the beginning as by 1960 he led them to the Championship game, however, they lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. A season later he led them to their second consecutive Championship game and instantly made amends as they were crowned NFL champions for the first time since 1944 after they defeated New York Giants. 

      This was the start of their second successful era, as they went back-to-back in 1962 defeating the Giants again. However, the best was yet to come as Lombardi then completed a three peat claiming the 1965, 1966 and 1967 titles. 

      Although completing a three peat is no easy feat, the 1966 and 1967 titles are that of significance as they would become known as the Super Bowl I and Super Bowl II. Lombardi became the first coach to win the Super Bowl, and in a way to honor him the Super Bowl trophy was named after him. 

      The Packers would endure a 29 year drought before they could be called Super Bowl champions again as Mike Holmgren (who was coach from 1992 to 1998, and made two Super Bowls) lead them to their first Super Bowl victory since 1967, when they won Super Bowl XXI over the New England Patriots for the 1996 season.

      After claiming the Super Bowl XXI, Holmgren coached them to their second consecutive Super Bowl appearance however, they went down to the Denver Broncos. It would take another long drought this time 14 years (even though they made the playoffs in 1998, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2007, 2009) before the Packers could get their hands on their fourth Vince Lombardi trophy when they defeated Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, with Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers being the MVP. 

      Since the turn of the 2010s the Packers are still one of the most successful franchises as they made the playoffs seven times between 2010 and 2020, with only 2017 and 2018 the years they didn’t make the postseason.

      Expert 2020 / 2021 Picks & Preview on Green Bay Packers

      If you are a fan of the Green Bay Packers, then you know that the only thing that matters right now is how they are expected to perform in the 2020 / 2021 season. Do the Green Bay Packers have the star power to make it all the way to the Super Bowl in 2021? Have a read on below at SportsTips expert picks & preview on the Green Bay Packers:

      Preview on Green Bay Packers Head Coach: Matt LeFleur

      After one year in charge of the Green Bay Packers, Matt LeFleur has already proved himself to be one of the best young coaches that the NFL has seen. At only 40 years of age, LeFleur led the Packers to an NFC North division title with a 13-3 record, and in doing so became the first Packers rookie head coach to win 10 games, make the playoffs, and win the NFC North. 

      The Packers 2019 post season campaign ended in the NFC Championship game after a loss to the 49’ers. This offseason, LeFleur traded up in the NFL draft to acquire rookie Quarterback Jordan Love with their first pick (#26), putting scrutiny on the relationship between himself and current Quarterback/future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodger. 

      However, LeFleur has stated that 36-year-old Rogers is still the first-string option in Green Bay, as the Packers look to make another deep playoff run in LeFleur’s second season in charge.

      Preview on Green Bay Packers Offensive Weapon: Aaron Rodgers, QB

      The resume truly speaks for itself, Super Bowl Champion, Super Bowl MVP, two-time league MVP, eight-time Pro Bowler, three time All Pro, two-time passer rating leader, touchdown passes leader and NFL All-Decade team of the 2010’s, all earned while competing against two of the greatest quarterbacks of all time in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. 

      Coming into the backend of a seriously accomplished career, Rodgers is clearly still capable of leading an offence deep into the playoffs. Having compiled back to back 4000 yard, 25 touchdown seasons, Rodgers has led the NFL with the lowest interception percentage over the past two seasons. 

      With Green Bay trading up to select rookie quarterback Jordan Love in this year’s draft, Rodgers, who wasn’t consulted about the selection of his apparent replacement, may now have some competition for snaps, which will no doubt motivate the champion quarterback into some impressive late career form.

      Preview on Green Bay Packers Defensive Weapon: Za’Darius Smith

      After a four-year stint with the Baltimore Ravens, Za’Darius Smith came to Green Bay and made an immediate impact for the Packers. Starting all 16 games for the first time in his career, as well as both playoff games, Smith set career highs in tackles (62) and sacks (15.5) to earn his first Pro Bowl invitation. 

      Smith led the NFL in total pressures, quarterback hits and expected sacks in 2019, and has clearly had an immediate impact on the Packers playing group, being voted defensive captain by his teammates. Coming into his second season in Green Bay’s system, Smith is a serious chance for All-Pro honours and will be a key player if the Packers are to have team success in 2020.

      Green Bay Packers Betting & Odds History

      The Green Bay Packers finished the 2019 season losing its conference championship to the San Francisco 49ers, in an otherwise pretty dominant display in which they lost three games (to Philadelphia Eagles, San Francisco 49ers and the Los Angeles Chargers). 

      The Packers finished the season with 11-7-0 against the spread, ranking them fifth overall and first in the NFC North. The Packers had the best against the spread record when they were at home as they finished the season with 6-3-0, ranking them as the number one team in the NFL and the best in the NFC North. 

      They were in the top 20 in the NFL when they were the away team even with a 5-4-0 record they were ranked 16th overall and first in the NFC North. When it came to over/under the Packers were ranked 20th in the NFL with a 8-10-0 record and were third in the NFC North.

      The Packers were ranked 22nd in the NFL for both being the home team and the away team as they finished 4-5-0 (for both home and away) as well as finishing third spot in the NFC North for both categories. 

      The Packers started the season at +2000 two days before their first game against Chicago Bears, and on 6 September their value dropped to +1600. The Packers won their opening three games of the season (from September 6 to September 23) and after their third win against Denver they were marked at their lowest price at +200 by September 24. 

      The Packers suffered a defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles on 27 September which saw their value go up to +1667. They responded when they went on a four game winning streak from October 7 to October 28 knocking off Dallas, Detroit, Oakland and Kansas City along the way as they ended the streak with +767. However, their value went up again after their loss to the Los Angeles Chargers to +1000. 

      From December 2 to December 30, the Packers were on a five game winning streak, with wins over New York Giants, Washington, Chicago Bears, Minnesota and Detroit giving them a +683 value (they were +1267 before the streak). 

      The Packers entered the playoffs with +683 before their divisional round win over Seattle, and that influenced the market as six days before their championship game against the San Francisco 49ers they were +617 and ultimately finished their season with that odds.
