    That's a tough one packer fans. Folklore has it that Ray Nitschke was the only Packer who did not fear Lombardi. But Ray feared Willie Wood. He was terrified that if he let up or made a mistake Willie would be all over him.

    The '69 Topps card was one of my favorites. I had at least seven of them.

    Adderly, Wood, and jeter in the same defensive backfield. With Caffey, nitschke, and Robinson in front of them. Four hall of famers.

    Yeah, that's just crazy. Made Nitschke's job pretty easy.

    Not to hijack your thread, but I've always thought that Jack Lambert had an easy time of it, playing between Jack Ham and Andy Russell, fronted by the Steel Curtain, and backed by those great dbs. I lived in Pgh for 11 years and watched his shenanigans.
