Dolphins cornerback Benny Sapp may be from Fort Lauderdale, but he’s no stranger to Lambeau Field in Green Bay. Prior to joining the Dolphins, he spent a couple of seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, the arch enemy of the Packers in the NFL North.
There is 54 years of tradition built into Lambeau Field. Originally named City Stadium, Lambeau stands on farmland purchased for just over $73,000 back in 1957. Names like Lombardi, Hornung, Starr, Kramer, Hutson, and Nitschke established the legacy of what the “G” on the side of the helmet was originally designed for, greatness.
I talked to Benny about the mystic of Lambeau, and how intense it is for a player on the field. We also discussed Packers wide receivers Donald Driver and Greg Jennings, plus what the absence of Green Bay tight end Jermichael Finley will mean to their game plan.
