Best Answer

Green Bay was named Titletown in the 1960's after Green Bay one the first and second Superbowls ever played. They also were conference champs 5 out of 7 seasons in this period. This is why the Superbowl trophy is called the Lombardi trophy, as Vince Lombardi was the Packer's coach during this time. Green Bay is a small town with a massively popular and successful team.

Packer fans are known as 'cheeseheads' because Wisconsin is America's dairyland. It is an agricultural dairyland, and you will in fact find a lot of cheese products here.
