Another Packer great will be immortalized in the Pro Football Hall of Fame as linebacker Dave Robinson was elected to the Hall on Saturday. A nominee from the Senior committtee, Robinson becomes the 12th member of the Glory Years teams of Vince Lombardi to make it to Canton. A number one pick in 1963, Robinson played 10 years in Green Bay before getting traded to Washington for his final two seasons. He was a big play defender on the great Packer teams and perhaps his biggest play was chasing down Don Meredith in the 1966 NFL Championship game, forcing an interception by Tom Brown in the end zone to preserve the 34-27 victory. Robinson becomes the 22nd Green Bay Packers player or coach to reach the Hall of Fame. He will be joined by former Kansas City Chiefs defensive lineman Curly Culp, Bill Parcells, Jonathan Ogden, Warren Sapp, Cris Carter and Larry Allen.
