Long-overdue. Deserved. Well-earned.
Whatever adjective you’d like to use to describe it, former Green Bay Packers general manager Ron Wolf’s street was unveiled on Tuesday.
Ron Wolf Way intersects with Brookwood Drive near the Titletown District in the Village of Ashwaubenon. It’s a short way from Lambeau Field.

We have long admired Wolf. You could — and I have — make the argument that he’s the third-most important figure in Green Bay Packers history, behind Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi.
Wolf was the architect that pulled the Packers out of a two-decade funk in the early 1990s. Those of you who sat through that funk know exactly what I’m talking about.
Wolf hired Mike Holmgren, traded for Brett Favre, signed Reggie White and constructed the roster that brought the first title back to Titletown since the 1960s.
The Packers are considered a model franchise and perennial winner because of what Ron Wolf built.
The guy should get a statue.
Wolf joins those three other guys previously mentioned with a street named after him. Brett Favre has Brett Favre Pass. Mike Holmgren has Holmgren Way. Reggie White has Reggie White Way.
Ron Wolf certainly set the standard for the GM position in a changing era when free agency became essentially a brand new concept for the NFL. Can’t say enough about him after he helped turn around a Packer organization that had suffered so many years of irrelevance throughout the 70’s and 80’s after the Lombardi days were long since gone.
Speaking of another Packer GM we know of all too well, the only way they should ever name a street after Ted Thompson, is if that street is a one-way road that leads somewhere the hell out of Green Bay.
Well deserved for Ron Wolfe!!! HELL NO as far as a Street after Cadaver Thompson, McSlob should have never got one. Favre either. when he put that filthy lavender uniform on, he burned his bridge. I for one will NEVER forget that, or his side show antics in locker room when he beat us in 2009
i miss Ron Wolf.
He was always striving to make the Packers better, whatever it took.
TT has a committed relationship with Status Quo.
Forget the street name, how about giving him his job back?
