Vince Lombardi’s 100th birthday was on June 11 and there’s likely a gift coming his way on Wednesday’s Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.

We’re unveiling the Packers Mt. Rushmore during the program and it would be a pretty enormous upset to learn that the legendary coach isn’t one of the four faces of the franchise. The question of which Packers icons will be joining him is still open for voting so be sure to share your thoughts.

Jerry Kramer, who played guard for Lombardi for many years, will share his choices when he talks to Erik Kuselias during the show. We’ll also hear from Mike Florio and Ross Tucker about the Packers as well as the back-and-forth between 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and Seahawks coach Pete Carroll about the run of PED suspensions in Seattle over the last couple of years.

It all gets started at 5 p.m. ET on NBCSN.

  1. Hudson, Starr, Lombardi for sure.

    Fourth will be debated forever and no one is really wrong as there are probably a dozen choices. Personally I would go with Favre. Even though I despised the way he acted the last 5 or 6 years with all the retire, not retire, retire stuff… he still was largely responsible for bringing that franchise back to glory.

  2. Jerry Kramer should be in the Hall of Fame.

    He was voted the best Offensive Guard in the first 50 years of the NFL by the Associated Press.

    He led the way on all those famous Power Sweeps, the signature play of the Lombardi era. Without a talented Guard that play is not possible. It is not run in today’s NFL because Guards are not as talented as Jerry Kramer.

    Back then NFL rosters were limited to 40 players and there was no room for some kicking specialist. Jerry kicked field goals.

    I know of only one whiney old geezer at the Minneapolis Tribune who spoke out against Jerry getting in the Hall of Fame in a typically viking nasally jealous whine “There are already so many Lombardi era Packers in the Hall of Fame.”
