Of all the great National Football League coaches, none have enjoyed the respect and reputation that Vince Lombardi earned during his tenure as head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Feared and beloved by players and peers, he coached the Packers to five NFL championships and victories in Super Bowls I and II. During the ten seasons in which his Packers compiled a remarkable 98-30-4 record, his relentless, uncompromising tactics and values defined him even more than the victories themselves. This book takes readers back to a bygone era when professional football was a game of guts, grit, and spit. Lombardi embodied the greatness of that era, and he demanded nothing less than greatness from his staff and players. In this book, dozens of players, assistant coaches, opponents, and league officials who knew him well recount their favorite Lombardi memories in their own words. They reveal the man behind the legend on and off the field.
