Sorry to hear this. I always respected him. Prayers to his family.

Football lost a legend today in Mr. Gregg. He and Jerry Kramer anchored that GB line for years. God bless you, Mr. Gregg.

I'd rather be an hour early than a minute late.

R I P Coach!   He turned the Bengals into a Super Bowl team after just one season there.  That is more than coaching.  That is a freaking miracle with that franchise!  Gone--but will never be forgotten!

Correction:  He was an Offensive Tackle for the Packers, not a TE.

A damn fine coach & as a player he was respected by his peers. His devotion to the game as well as the energy he projected both inspired and motivated all who bore witness.

The Bengals have sorely missed your leadership qualities.

RIP Coach & regards to your mentor Vince...

Forrest Gregg, Bart Starr, Jim Taylor, Ray Nitschke, Herb Adderley, Willie Davis, Paul Hornung, Henry Jordan, Dave Robinson, Jerry Kramer and Vince Lombardi.   ALL Green Bay HOFers from that era.  What a list! The heyday of me collecting football cards at 9-12 years old back in the day.

Hey Skunk Bear...everyone within three blocks likely heard you coming whenever you were out riding your bike, huh?

Yessir! And wouldn't we have loved to have those bent up, shredded and spoke-eaten cards back a few years ago when the card market was strong! We had a small fortune that we sacrificed to make our bikes sound "cool" huh? If we only knew!
