PLAYERS: Vince Lombardi
GREEN BAY, Wis. From 1959 to 1967, Packers coach Vince Lombardi operated 15 minutes ahead of schedule. As the Pro Football Hall of Famer rose to legendary status, being 15 minutes early became affectionately known as Lombardi Time around Green Bay. On July 20, a new clock facing Lombardi Avenue on the north side of Lambeau Field was officially set to Lombardi Time; 15 minutes ahead of the actual time. "We felt it was a unique and fitting tribute to Coach Lombardi," Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said. Lombardi, who coached the Packers in their Super Bowl I and II victories, also has a statue that debuted in 2003 outside of Lambeau Field. Follow Paul Imig on Twitter.
