Many pro football fans are mourning the death of one of the sport's icons of the 1960s. Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Bart Starr passed away Sunday at the age of 85.

Starr thrived under the guidance of Packers coach Vince Lombardi, and the team won five NFL titles in the '60s, plus the first two Super Bowls. Perhaps Starr's most famous play was scoring the winning touchdown in the 1967 NFL Championship game against the Dallas Cowboys, a contest known as the Ice Bowl.

Forrest Gregg, the man legendary Packers coach Vince Lombardi called, "the best player I ever coached," has died at age 85. Gregg, a tackle, played for the Packers for 14 seasons (1956-1970) and was a key member of the franchise's early championship teams, including Super Bowls I and II. He went on to play one season for the Dallas Cowboys, in 1971, helping them to a Super Bowl victory as well.
