Green Bay Packers
Since we are doing the whole "Big Game" series here...I figured we'd tell you how the Green Bay Packers got their name...Pretty darn cool
The oldest continuous franchise in the NFL also has the most unique nickname. In a league whose team names lean toward an animal (Eagles, Dolphins, Panthers) or a historical event (49ers, Ravens, Patriots) or a controversial nod to the past (Chiefs, Redskins), the Green Bay Packers stand out. How did the 92-year-old franchise get the name?
