Forrest Gregg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (501 words)
Alvis Forrest Gregg (born October 18, 1933, in Birthright, Texas) is a former American Football Offensive Tackle and coach who played for the Green Bay Packers and the Dallas Cowboys.
Despite his small size (6-4, 249 pounds) for an offensive lineman, Gregg was a key player on the Packers dynasty that won several NFL championships and 2 Super Bowls in the 1960s, and finished his career winning another super bowl ring with the Dallas Cowboys in 1971.
Gregg's most successful season as a head coach was in 1981, when he coached the Bengals to a 12-4 regular season record and they went on to defeat the San Diego Chargers 27-7 in the AFC championship game (known as the Freezer Bowl), earning them a trip to the Super Bowl.
TSN Presents - Football's 100 Greatest Players (330 words)
Nature dictated that finesse would play a major role in the life of the gruff, no-nonsense, straight-talking Gregg, who at 6-4 and 249 pounds was lighter and not as strong as the players he had to block.
Gregg studied film on Jim Parker and Roosevelt Brown, two of the greatest linemen in football history.
With the durable Gregg (he played in 187 consecutive games for the Packers over 14 seasons) clearing the way, the great Packers of the '60s won five NFL championships (and two Super Bowls) in a seven-year period.
