Since the Green Bay Packers were founded in 1919, they’ve been one of the most beloved teams in American football. They entered the National Football League in 1921 and their legacy started early with two of the NFL’s most famous coaches, including Vince Lombardi and Earl Lambeau. The team earned 11 championships under the direction of these men and they, along with 20 Packers’ players, are part of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, making the Packers one of the most successful franchises in history.
