    IMO I'd rather see it the other way around, the NFC Trophy be called the Lombardi ,.. and the Super Bowl be called the Halas Trophy ,...after all if it weren't for Papa Bear ,... jus saying

    105-35-6 is a more winning record than 318-148-31??? Maybe by percentage, but 318 beats 105 in my book.....

    in any case, I really hope virginia gets to see another superbowl victory. She deserves it.

    meh, I have no problem with it being called the Lombardi Trophy. Like it or not, more NFL fans (including casual fans) recognize Lombardi's name than Halas's. Also, Lombardi did win the first two Super Bowls, and that is what the trophy is awarded for, after all. If Halas had still been around and had won those first two Super Bowls, it would be named after him.

    Whichever.

    There is a reason why it was named the Lombardi and not the Halas. I am sure some Bear fans will say some sort of BS Conspiracy against the Bears.

    All I know is every time a Bear fan mentions how it should be called the Halas Trophy I hang my head because they come across as having a massive inferiority complex.

    Please don't put words or meanings in statements that aren't there. It was named Lombardi because there was already a Halas. I thnik Halas should have been elevated to the superbowl, and the NFC trophy should have been renamed to Lombardi. No conspiracy, no inferiority complex, no BS. Halas was the most influential in starting the league, he should get top honor.

    I was not casting a shadow on you individually, but Bear fans in generally who come off as whinny asshats who feel they had something stolen from them.

    It was named after him in memorial after he died. Out of respect to one of the men responsible for there being an NFL. Plus he won the trophy the first two years.

    As you said, Halas already had one so what sense would it make to change it around? It wouldn't. Except you are wrong there. The NFC Championship trophy was not called the George Halas trophy until 1984 which happens to be just after he died.

    If you want the Super Bowl trophy to be names after Halas perhaps he should have died before Lombardi. And no, I am not wishing an earlier death on Papa Bear than he had.

    Either way Bear fans who complain about the name come off very petty.

    I agree it would probably have gone that that way

    One thing though,... whether thats was the full and complete interview I find it hard to believe and do feel bad for the 85erz, that she chose the ' 06 Bears over them in being the favorite moment ,... That one's leaving me with scratching my head

    Boy, I'll choose my words more carefully in the future. I didn't expect the controversy.
