GREEN BAY, Wis. -- As storied as the tradition of the Green Bay Packers is, with four Super Bowl victories and 13 total league championships, there was a 20-year stretch when the franchise struggled to even finish a season with a winning record.
But ever since Mike Holmgren was hired as head coach in 1992, the Packers have consistently been one of the best teams in the NFL. In the 22 seasons prior to Holmgren's arrival in Green Bay, the Packers had only four winning seasons -- or three if the strike-shortened 1982 season isn't included. But over the past 20 seasons, even though Holmgren was only in Green Bay for seven of them, the Packers have had a losing record only twice.
That successful run -- which is still in full swing coming off a 15-1 regular season record -- began with Holmgren.
Now that Holmgren is being inducted into the Packers Hall of Fame, he believes his legacy in Green Bay is the role he played in helping to turn around the franchise's fortunes.

With the departure of Chad Clifton this offseason, 2010 fifth round pick Marshall Newhouse is expected to step in at left tackle this season, according to Peter Dougherty of the Green Bay Press-Gazette.
“In the 2010 and ’11 drafts, General Manager Ted Thompson used his first-round pick on candidates for the job, Bryan Bulaga in ’10 and Derek Sherrod last year....
Does that headline seem a little over the top? If you are a true Green 'n' Gold fan of the Green Bay Packers...nah, nothing but the truth in that statement.During the offseason, Packer fans find themselves doing anything to distract themselves from the reality that things are just not right. How could they be? There's no Packers football for Pete's sake! Or anyone...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A few hours before Mike Holmgren's induction into the Packers Hall of Fame, the former Green Bay coach preached patience when it comes to the ongoing tension between former quarterback Brett Favre and the organization that the two helped return to prominence in the mid-1990s.
Under Holmgren's leadership, Favre rose from being Don Majkowski's backup...

With Mike Holmgren's induction into Packers Hall of Fame on Saturday night, we put some perspective on what Mike McCarthy has accomplished in his seasons running the show.
With the start of the NFL season fast approaching, we continue our look around the league division by division with a stop in the NFC North, where we have a pretty good idea which team will finish first and an even better idea which team will finish last, but the middle of the division is more interesting.
The cream of the division is, of course, the Green Bay Packers, who sported...
Barring a major surprise, the Packers will stick with A.J. Hawk and Desmond Bishop atop a revamped depth chart.
Do-it-all Desmond Bishop leads the way at a position group with tremendous depth with the addition of a rookie and two veterans. However, what the coaches don't say — and the numbers do say — about A.J. Hawk is telling.
The deepest and best group in the league is led by Greg Jennings and Jordy Nelson and their combined 24 touchdown receptions.
