THE STEELERS NEVER HAD A CHANCE. Vince Lombardi fires up the 2011 Packers.


Lombardi's Packers were 5-0 in the preseason and 3-1 during the regular season against the Steelers.

The Steelers were the last team to defeat Lombardi's Packers, December 17, 1967, in a game that Jerry Kramer's Instant Replay suggests didn't matter too much, with Pittsburgh getting points off of an interception return and a fumble return, and Bart Starr rested in favor of promising understudy Don Horn.

Uggghhhh...so the Packers won. I still believe that healthy Bears can defeat healthy Packers, but I'm at least happy that the trophy is in the NFC North.

A few months ago we had the pleasure of seeing 'Lombardi' on Broadway. Surprisingly, there wasn't one cheese hat in the whole place. Poor Dan Lauria...great acting, but the person who wrote that dialogue should be shot.

Didn't healthy Bears defeat relatively healthy Packers back in week 3? I do recall some griping from Wisconsin about the Bears having fewer injuries down the stretch ...

You mean Lauria as Lombardi didn't say "Economics is all about relative prices and indifference at the margin?"

Nothing about relative prices per se....but I believe he mentioned something about 'bygones are forever bygones.' Perhaps it was a Joe Johnson reference?
