GREEN BAY – Four Packers individuals – two coaches and two offensive linemen – have been selected to the "NFL 100 All-Time Team."

Coaches Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi, along with offensive tackles Cal Hubbard and Forrest Gregg, were named to the team as NFL Network continued its presentation of the centennial squad.

They join Reggie White as Pro Football Hall of Famers the Packers consider "theirs" who have been selected. Hall of Famers Jan Stenerud and Emlen Tunnel, who both had brief stints in their careers with the Packers, have been named to the team as well.

Lambeau co-founded the Packers in 1919 and was the team's head coach through 1949, winning six NFL championships along the way. That ties him with George Halas and Bill Belichick for the most all-time. He's one of only six coaches in league history to win more than 200 games.

Lombardi, who came to Green Bay in 1959 and coached the Packers for nine seasons, won five titles in a seven-year span from 1961-67, and he remains the only coach in league history to win three straight championships under a playoff format (1965-67). He ranks first in all-time winning percentage among NFL coaches with 100 career victories or more (.750, 105-35-6, including one season in Washington and a 9-1 postseason record, all with Green Bay).

Hubbard played for the Packers from 1929-33 and also in 1935. At 6-2, 253 pounds, he was considered a mammoth lineman in his day, and he played both offense and defense in the league's "Iron Man Era." Hubbard was integral in the Packers winning three straight NFL titles from 1929-31, and he was an All-Pro selection in the first three years the league so honored players (1931-33). He was chosen for the NFL's 50th Anniversary Team in 1969 and the 75th Anniversary All-Two-Way Team in 1994.

Gregg was the most decorated of Lombardi's offensive linemen, getting selected to nine Pro Bowls and to the Associated Press All-Pro team seven times. He was a member of all five of Lombardi's championship teams, and he started 187 consecutive games, a team record until Brett Favre broke it. Gregg was voted to the NFL's 75th Anniversary All-Time Team in 1994 and the league's 1960s All-Decade Team.
