Lombardi Turns 100
McCarthy comments on coach's legacy
Oregon, Wis. — Tuesday is Vince Lombardi’s 100th birthday.
The legendary coach led the Packers to five NFL Championships, including the first two Super Bowls.
At a charity golf event Monday in Oregon, Mike McCarthy took some time to reflect on Lombardi’s legacy and what he might think of the state of the team today.
“He’d probably say we should run the ball more” McCarthy joked.
McCarthy went on to say that he thought Lombardi would enjoy the toughness and discipline of the current teams.
The golf event McCarthy attended raised $325,000 benefitting the American Family Children’s Hospital.
