Lombardi Trophy

Instant Super Bowl fan reaction: Lombardi Trophy is finally coming home!

The first half of Super Bowl XLV was completely dominated by the Green Bay Packers. The Packers scored two touchdowns within 24 seconds of each other, the second of which came on the heels of Roethlisberger's first interception of the game. The Packers continued to produce points out of turnovers throughout the entire game. The Steelers turned the ball over two times in the first half with two interceptions. At the end of the first half, the score was 21-10 and it looked like Green Bay had this one all wrapped up.

Every penalty of the first half went against The Steelers. At the beginning of the second half, suddenly the Packers racked up 3 penalties in the first 3 minutes of the third quarter. One of those penalties was a personal foul on Green Bay. The officials seemed to think that the Green Bay player touched the facemask of the Steelers player. I tend to disagree and think it was the other way around, but the Steelers got their payback near the end of the game when they got a personal foul on the kick return. The Packers got a second personal foul when Williams retaliated against Steelers players trying to push him into the ball on a kick return. ( Read Lombardi Trophy more... )

Roger Staubach Presents The Vince Lombardi Trophy; 5 Trophy Facts

Who had the honor of handing the Vince Lombardi trophy (aka The Super Bowl trophy) over to the Green Bay Packers tonight? Roger Staubach was the lucky guy. And who is Roger Staubach?

Roger is the executive chairman of Chicago-based commercial real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle. If you’re a football fan, you’ll also know that he was the quarterback who led the Dallas Cowboys to victories in Super Bowl VI and Super Bowl XII.

An interesting fact? Staubach actually picked the Packers to win! “You can mark my word: The Packers will prevail.” Although Staubach lost Super Bowls X and XIII to the Steelers in the 1970s, he had this to say about his pick: “I have nothing but the utmost respect and admiration for the Steelers and the city of Pittsburgh,” he says. “But the numbers don’t lie. The Lombardi Trophy is going back to TitleTown USA.” ( Read Lombardi Trophy more... )

Lombardi Trophy Comes Home

In a fitting end to a season marked by adversity, the Green Bay Packers overcame game-ending injuries to key players and outlasted the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win Super Bowl XLV and bring the Lombardi trophy home.

It was an amazing game from the start.

The Packers dominated the first half, scoring two times in 24 seconds off Steelers turnovers to take a 21-10 lead at the half. Ben Roethlisberger looked lost and the Steelers defense was on its heels most of the time as Super Bowl MVP Aaron Rodgers sliced through defenders and tossed two of his three touchdowns to Jordy Nelson (stud of the game) and Greg Jennings.

Green Bay’s defense also came up big with two picks of Roethlisberger, one returned for a touchdown by Nick Collins. ( Read Lombardi Trophy more... )
