    He was one of many great players on the Lombardi Packer teams. He played just as the NFL was becoming immensely popular because of television. I always thought he was the leader of Green Bay's offense while Ray Nitschke was the defensive leader. He was a tremendous QB in the sense that he was not just a passer but a model of consistency who made clutch plays and made no mistakes.
