A history lesson from a rookie

Nov. 6, 2013

How many Green Bay Packers' rookies can reference 1919, the Indian Packing Co., and Curly Lambeau? Seventh-round draft pick B.J. Coleman, a quarterback from Tennessee-Chattanooga, did. Clearly, during the two weeks between the draft and this weekend's rookie orientation camp, Coleman had done his homework. "I did some research before I came up here and studied up on Curly Lambeau and how that all worked," Coleman said. "What an impressive organization, and it shows the perseverance by long it's been around. I believe 1919 was when it was first thought of 1921 was when it was established. "The biggest thing was how it got started. I think it was the Indian Packing Company (that put up money to start the team). I tried to study up as much as possible It's remarkable to watch how something like this grew into something so big and how much the city really supports the team."
