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.
