    Jerry Kramer was the reason the Packer sweep worked to perfection.You know we were going to run the football and STILL couldn’t stop us.

    • shavager

      I agree James–Lombardi lined up that sweep led by Kramer and Thurston, behind either Bob Skoronski or Forrest Gregg and basically said “Here we come, stop us IF you can”, and for seven years NO NFL team consistently could stop them and two AFL champs failed to do it. Only ONE team ever slowed them in a playoff game, that being 1960 and they were 7 yards away and ZERO seconds on clock from winning that game too. I think it would be easy to look through the Hall’s previous selections and pick numerous players that Jerry Kramer could equal or better in accomplishments. There are NO limits on how many players the Hall will eventually select, WHY should there be a limit on how many players from ONE team or ONE coach can be selected? The Hall selects players for THEIR individual contributions to both TEAM and League as a player, Jerry Kramer certainly stands HEAD and SHOULDERS above some others selected and he did it with class and dignity of a TEAM player.
