Kramer also doubled as the Packers’ placekicker, at least for parts of the 1962, ’63 and ’68 seasons. Jerry Kramer has the perfect devil-may-care attitude it takes to play this game, Lombardi wrote in his book, Run to Daylight.

Chuck Carlson, Foreword by Jerry Kramer.

Jerry Kramer did not know how good he was when he first joined the Green Bay Packers. You'd be surprised how much confidence a little success will bring. With Kramer playing right guard, the Packers won five NFL titles and the first two Super Bowls. He was also the team's placekicker in 1962, 1963, and part of 1968. As a kicker, he made 29 field goals, 90 extra points, for a total of 177 points.

Green Bay Packers-1967. 1: Preliminary Skirmishes. This is Jerry Kramer's book. These are his thoughts, his impressions, his words

Green Bay Packers-1967. The Green Bay team on which Kramer played was the second pro-football dynasty -the first being the Cleveland Browns of the early to mid-1950 s-and it has achieved a degree of mythic status that no other pro-football team has enjoyed before or since. These are his thoughts, his impressions, his words. He is, I believe, an observant, perceptive, and articulate young man who happens to be a tremendous professional football player.

As you will discover when you read "Green Bay Packers: Yesterday & Today", the history of this fabled franchise began on a hot August night in 1919. That s when sportswriter George Calhoun and local star athlete Curly Lambeau met at a pub to discuss starting a pro football team in the small Wisconsin town of Green Bay. Today, the Packers are a cornerstone of the NFL and one of the most recognizable sports teams in the world. From the shrine known as Lambeau Field to landmark moments to generations of players highlighted by the likes of Cal Hubbard, Don Hutson, Arnie Herber, Ray Nitschke, Bart Starr, Paul Hornung, Herb Adderley, Sterling Sharpe, Reggie White, Brett Favre, and Donald Driver. 'Green Bay Packers: Yesterday & Today' is the ultimate Packers chronicle.Richly detailed and lavishly illustrated with photos, memorabilia, and clippings from the Green Bay Press-Gazette, this book starts by describing an era when a small Midwestern city with mettle and a little luck could create a championship-caliber team. It tells how an Easterner Vince Lombardi brought a ruthless work ethic and a singular personality to the Packers golden age of the 1950s and 1960s. How Lombardi s handpicked successor, Phil Bengtson, and then Starr and Dan Devine couldn t duplicate the legendary coach s success on the sideline. And how coach Mike Holmgren and Favre returned the Super Bowl trophy to Titletown in the 1990s.In 'Green Bay Packers: Yesterday & Today', you will read аbout: The Ice Bowl of 1967, when 50,000 Packers faithful braved a 13-degree temperature to watch their team beat the Cowboys for the NFL title, setting up Green Bay s second Super Bowl championship two weeks later Don Majkowski, who for three seasons was the swaggering, rakish embodiement of what an NFL quaterback should be Some of the tragedy surrounding the team, such as the untimely death of White The curious and contentious departure of Favre, who retired as a Packer but then unretired to play for the Jets and the Vikings The attempts of current players such as Favre s successor at quarterback, Aaron Rodgers to return the franchise to gloryThese are just some of the hundreds of people, stories, and events that are chronicled in "Green Bay Packers: Yesterday & Today", a must-have for any fan of football.

I purchased three books about the Green Bay Packers for my three boys--all Packer Backers. They are to read them and then trade so that they all three get to read all three books. I gave them as Christmas presents and they really loved them. Not sure if they will share them so everybody gets to read them though. :)
