Players used to joke Lombardi was the greatest Some of us grew up watching Little house on the prairie the cool ones still do shirt coach in the world 6 days of the week & useless on Sunday. When you look at film you’ll see Lombardi doesn’t even have a sheet of paper in his hand. That’s because Starr had met with his head coach during the week & teamed up to create the offensive game plan for the current opponent.
That’s right: Bart Starr was his own Offensive Some of us grew up watching Little house on the prairie the cool ones still do shirt Coordinator & was calling all, or nearly all, the plays during all the games. Lombardi said he sent in about 10 plays per year & even then Starr had the right to change it, not in the huddle, but at the line, if his QB felt the defense he was looking at made the called play a poor choice.
