1968 PACK­ERS

Packer Plus - - NEWS -

Af­ter win­ning five cham­pi­onships un­der Vince Lom­bardi, the Green Bay Pack­ers en­tered an era of tran­si­tion. At the top, Lom­bardi re­mained as GM but handed over the head coach­ing du­ties to Phil Bengt­son. On the field, vet­eran play­ers were show­ing their age. We’ll take a chrono­log­i­cal look at orig­i­nal news­pa­per ac­counts of the Pack­ers in 1968, with a fo­cus on Lom­bardi in his fi­nal year in Green Bay, and other changes that saw the team be­gin an age of de­cline. Sto­ries may be edited for space.
