    I said it before and I will say it again. The Super Bowl trophy was named after Lombardi because he died. Halas won more games, won more titles and was the founder of the NFL.

    Why would you NOT count all 9 of the Bears titles?

    Re: Speaking of da bears: Halas may be papa, but Brett is da

    Here's the historical - for that Decade ------- NFL History

    Interesting that the NFL doesn't spend time including more of what really happens in each of the Decades, since the inception. Notice how many times ol' Papa Bear retires and comes back... heheh - also how much of the winning tradition by the Packers gets lost in the write-up..... Not to mention many other Teams. I'd have to keep reading, but in this particular Decade, there's no discussion of Art Modell's creative idea to implement TV revenue sharing equally among all NFL Teams... so, that must have come later. Basically, without Vince Lombardi, and the consistent winning tradition of the Packers, along with the merging of the AFL/NFL... (notice how they leave out Al Davis' part in all of the legal fighting between these two franchise groups) ....which was fought over for almost five years...all told...the NFL wouldn't be what it is today.

    Anyone got an idea of what the SuperBowl trophy would have been called had Lombardi lived?

    I believe the NFL gives out a George Halas award but nobody knows what it's for------------runner up perhaps.

    It goes to the NFC Champion, I believe. Kind of like "your good.....but not quite the best". "First you must prove you are worthy of winning the Halas before we let you even THINK about playing for the Lombardi."

    In Bears fans minds they won like 3 or 4 LOMBARDI trophies because that 85 team was so great. At least in 97 we got to defend our title

    Nooooo... Halas died in 1983. That was long after Vince was gone. I love Vince but if Halas had died in 1970 right after the NFL-AFL merger do you really believe that the trophy would not be called the Halas trophy? Come on man. They named the trophy after him just 7 days after he died. Look it up. :roll:

    Halas retiring and coming back and still winning over 300 games and 6 titles is even more incredible than if he had stayed for 50 straight years. How many titles did Vince win in Washington? They went 7-5-2 in 1969.

    Wasn't it Mara who came up with the equal TV money? I thought I saw that written about him in the wake of his death.

    Re: Speaking of da bears: Halas may be papa, but Brett is da

    I'd like to see that Article - as far as I've ever heard, it was the Cleveland Owner who put that out there.. and is still given credit for it today. I'll lookk for the article which eludes to Jerry Jones and a few other Owners considering the tactic of "getting rid" of the revenue sharing option, leaving Teams to fend for themselves. If it happens? You can bet teams like the Bengals, Titans, Bucs and the PACKERS.. would all fade off into the sunset. Oh the Green Bay Org would hang around for a time, but eventually, it would fail.... WHY? Because once the sharing is gone, the richer teams can bribe their way to being the only games anyone would get to see on TV to begin with... You can see where that leads. Of all the small market teams, the Pack would probably outlast just all others, but it would just never last.

    How about lending a hand on this note - see if anyone can find those articles....(?)

    First off, PHIL - DePack was (ahem) joking... it wasn't literal.
    Number two - I think I already postd the link to where the NFL discusses when they renamed the Trophy. Truth is, if Chuck Noll had died around that time...in fact anyone of the HC's or GM's ..maybe.. or even a very famous player, even.... They had been considering the renaming option for over a year... It wasn't, as you say, a sudden event..Lombardi just (sorry) fell into it. Moot point now, don't ya think?

    It very well could have been Modell. I wouldn't have had any idea who's idea it was if not for Mara passing recently, and the the topic being brought up. Perhaps Mara may have been commended for being a strong supporter of the idea, as it hurt his own big market team more than it helped it, but he had the best interests of the league in mind.

    Yes I get it. You know.... it does not matter who the trophy is named after. All that matters is who wins it.
