I remember enjoying watching him play. By all accounts a good person too.

Packers legend Bart Starr died Sunday at age 85. The Packers lifer had been in poor health since suffering a stroke in 2014. One of the greatest quarterbacks of all-time, Starr spent his entire 16-year career with the Packers, earning MVP honors in 1966 while winning five championships including Super Bowls I and II. The Alabama alum later returned to Green Bay as the team's head coach, serving in that capacity for nine seasons. The Bart Starr Award has been given out annually in his honor since 1989. The Hall of Famer will be missed.

I watched him play at the end of his career. Class act.

I was unaware that he coached his former team for nearly a decade. True team guy to the core. I don’t feel I’m being pessimistic when I say that mentality is dying.

Bart Starr was the first Tom Brady when it came to the playoffs.

Starr, who died on Sunday at the age of 85, still has the NFL record for the highest postseason passer rating, at 104.8.

Starr’s postseason stats are, for their era, absolutely amazing. He averaged 8.2 yards per pass and threw 15 touchdowns and only three interceptions. All of his postseason games were played in the 1960s, when the typical TD:INT ratio was about 1:1, and quarterbacks typically averaged a little over six yards per pass.

In the 1966 season, the league average passer rating was 67.4. That postseason, Starr had a 143.5 passer rating in leading the Packers to a win at Dallas in the NFL Championship Game, then had a 116.2 passer rating in leading the Packers to a win over the Chiefs in Super Bowl I.

To Starr, the most important stat of all was that the Packers went 9-1 in the 10 postseason games he played.

He was a genuinely all around good guy. Growing up in Wisconsin he would swing in for different packer events and he would take time to talk with anyone that would listen. No ego, he was just appreciative of the people that supported him. World lost a darn good overall person.
