That's too bad. I liked his passion as a player.

I remember the HATRED he and Mike Ditka had for each other when he coached the Packers and Ditka “da Bears”. They both fought dirty!

As a player, he was one of the best all time.
He is one of the few “glory days” Packers I never got to meet.
RIP Forest.

Packers HOF Forest Gregg passes away
Posted on 04/12/2019 by Max Sachs

Who do you think Vince Lombardi’s quote: “the best player I ever coached” is about?

Without the headline, many would have guessed Bart Starr or another star player from one of the many Championship squads Vince Lombardi had. But he did say it about Forest Gregg.

Gregg, a right tackle for the Packers from 1956 to 1970, was one of the best offensive linemen of his time, some say ever. He was an essential part of one of Lombardi’s most famous plays, the “power sweep”. With his speed and ability he was able to get from one side of the line to the other and still be in front of the running back when they reached the second level.

Back in 2010, the NFL named their greatest players ever. Gregg made it up to 54 and no wonder – he played 15 seasons in the NFL, when NFL careers were even shorter than nowadays, and he was a five-time NFL champion, a nine-time Pro Bowler, a seven-time first-team All Pro, he was also named to the NFL’s 1960’s All-Decade Team and the 75th Anniversary All-Time Team. Of course, he was also selected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame (in 1977).

Being modest about himself, he told he wasn’t sure to make the team when he arrived in Green Bay and he said he didn’t unpack his bag for several weeks in hist first offseason in the NFL. In his first year, the Packers won the NFL Championship and Gregg went on to play 187 (!) consecutive games for the Packers.

Mark Murphy told about him he was “one of the greatest players” in Packers history. By the way, later in his life Gregg once again was a part of the Pack: As a coach from 1984 to 1987.

Rest in peace.

sorry guys, I didnt see this post, so I started a new thread.

My only addtion would be he was a man's man. I didn't always like the way he coached, but I greatly admired his "take no s@#$" attitude and resolve. We need more men with that resolve and attitude.

Forest Gregg Picture after competing in elements

I’d like to extend my deepest sympathies to the family of a true Packers legend, Forrest Gregg. This picture has been hanging in my home office for the last 10 years and serves as a great reminder of what a tough competitor Forrest was. #Packers #GoPackGo
