Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Green Bay Packers are an American football team based in Green Bay, Wisconsin. They are members of the North Division of the National Football Conference in the National Football League. The Packers are the current NFL champions. Green Bay is the second-oldest franchise in the NFL. The Packers are the last vestige of "small town teams" that were once common in the NFL during the 1920s and 1930s. Founded in 1919 by Earl "Curly" Lambeau and George Whitney Calhoun, the Green Bay Packers can trace their lineage to other semi-professional teams in Green Bay dating back to 1896. The 1958 Green Bay Packers season was their 38th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 1-10-1 record under coach Ray McLean, earning them a last-place finish in the Western Conference and the worst record ever posted by a Packers team. In the immortal words of New York sportswriter and Green Bay native Red Smith: "they overwhelmed one opponent, under whelmed ten, and whelmed one." McLean would not return to Green Bay in 1959, and his dismissal paved the way for the historic hiring of Vince Lombardi.show more
