(NEW YORK) - The NFL Championship matchup on December 13, 1936 took place at the Polo Grounds in New York even though the Eastern Division had been won by the Boston Redskins. Owner George Preston Marshall, upset at the lack of fan support in the franchise’s home city, had the game moved to a neutral site. The weather was at least cooperative – it was sunny with temperatures in the mid-30s, and 29,545 fans showed up. The Redskins, under first year Head Coach Ray Flaherty, won the division with a 7-5 record, just ahead of the 6-6 Pittsburgh Pirates. The passing game was ordinary, but not the rushing of star FB Cliff Battles (fourth in the NFL in rushing with 614 yards), plus FB Pug Rentner and tailback Eddie Britt behind a line anchored by tackle Turk Edwards. However, Marshall, the imperious owner, had alienated both fans and press in Boston, especially by raising ticket prices on game days without notice. The Green Bay Packers were the heavily favored opponents, with an outstanding team that carried the tougher Western Division with a 10-1-1 record under Head Coach Curly Lambeau. Lambeau was the first NFL coach to significantly utilize the passing game, and the Packers had a very good one with tailback Arnie Herber (pictured above) throwing primarily to star second-year end Don Hutson (pictured at bottom). Herber led the league in passing for the third time in his career, and also led in attempts (177), completions (77), yards (1239), and TD passes (11). Hutson set new records in pass receptions (34) and receiving yards (526), and also led the NFL in TD catches (8). Green Bay could run the ball, too, with a backfield led by FB Clarke Hinkle (also an outstanding linebacker on defense). The tone for the game was set on the tenth play from scrimmage, when Battles, who had gained 18 yards on two carries for the Redskins, was injured and lost for the remainder of the day. On the play, his lateral to blocking back Riley Smith was fumbled and recovered by T Lou Gordon of the Packers on the Green Bay 48 yard line. Three plays later, Herber found Hutson on a long pass that covered 48 yards for the first touchdown of the game. The Redskins came back in the second quarter with a solid 78-yard drive that culminated in a two-yard TD plunge by Rentner. However, Smith’s extra point attempt was wide, and the score at halftime was 7-6 in favor of the

BOLD - Played for the Packers
Packers at Giants Program - 22 November
After defeating the Chicago Cardinals in the first week of the season, the Packers were embarrassed at home by the Chicago Bears 30-3. However, the loss would prove to be a turning point rather then a setback as Green Bay would not lose again before tying the Cardinals in Chicago in a meaningless game at the end of the season. The Packers already had the Western Division sewn up, and were set to play the Boston Redskins in the NFL Championship Game. The game was played in New York, as the Redskins were in the middle of relocating to Washington. Don Hutson scored on a 48-yard TD pass in the first 3 minutes, as the Packers never looked back winning their 4th Championship, and first in the modern era 21-6.
After attending college for a few years to no notoriety, Arnie Herber came back to Green Bay in 1929 and worked in the club house as a handyman. Curly Lambeau gave Herber a try-out and Herber joined a team that was currently dominating the NFL. By the time his career ended in 1941, Herber had thrown 81 touchdown passes and played on four title teams. Herber had a peculiar way of holding the ball. Handicapped by short fingers, he put his thumb over the laces to prevent the ball from wobbling and to assure plenty of spiraling action. Arnie’s passes quickly became noted for two qualities: distance and accuracy. During the 1937 season, Arnie suffered a leg injury that sharply reduced his effectiveness. In 1938, a new passer, Cecil Isbell from Purdue, began aIternating the quarterback chores with Herber. After the 1940 season, Arnie retired, or was he forced out when the team came to training camp in 1941? Herber was a popular player with the fans, and was known to toss back a few beers, so, out of concern over his weight, Lambeau put a clause in his contract, requiring Herber to be under 200 pounds. Despite the clause, Lambeau cut his fading star in training camp, at the age of 30. But, according to researcher Larry Names, the real reason may have been more dramatic. Lambeau's second ex-wife returned to town, aiming for child support. Trying to establish residency, the coach warned hotels to not offer her a room. The Herbers provided the former Mrs. Lambeau a room, and when they refused to kick her out, Lambeau cut Herber. That reaction may have led to Cecil Isbell's retirement in 1942. Herber came back to the draft-depleted NFL in 1944, answering a call to play for the New York Giants. Herber threw sparingly but efficiently, for 651 yards and six touchdowns. As usual for Herber-led teams, the Giants won their conference and went to the title game. Herber's old squad, the Packers, still featuring Don Hutson, beat the Giants 14-7. Herber played one more forgettable season with the Giants and then retired for good. He was named to the Hall of Fame in 1966, just three years before he died at the age of 59.

November 15: Green Bay (8-1) 38, Brooklyn (2-5-1) 7
(BROOKLYN) - Varying a smashing running attack with a dazzling aerial offensive, the powerful Green Bay Packers routed the Brooklyn Dodgers, 38 to 7, before 25,325 persons. Dominating the play throughout the game, the Packers scored a field goal in the first quarter, two touchdowns in the second period and three more in the third. The Dodgers, who were unable to advance farther than the Green Bay 33-yard line until the final period, averted a shutout by driving 60 yards to a touchdown in the closing minutes of play. A 70-yard march by the Dodgers in the same period ended when Green Bay intercepted a pass on its own nine. Paul Engebretsen began the rout with a 23-yard field goal in the first period. In the second period a blocked kick by Ernie Smith on the Brooklyn 17 was converted into a touchdown when Arnie Herber passed to Don Hutson over the goal line.

(NEW YORK) - Bringing their dazzling aerial display to the Polo Grounds, the Green Bay Packers routed the New York Giants, 26 to 14, before 25,000 persons. The victory kept Green Bay in a tie with the Chicago Bears at the top of the NFL's Western Division. The Packers began with a 34-yard field goal by Ernie Smith late in the first period, but reserved the real firewoiks for the second half, scoring two touchdowns in the third period and another in the fourth. They added two more points when one of Tony Sarausky's punts was blocked by Smith and rolled into the end zone for an automatic safety. A 67-yard drive following the second half kickoff accounted for the first Packer touchdown. Clark Hinkle pounded over from the one-yard line. Later in the same period, Arnie Herber passed to Hal Schneidman who caught the ball in the clear and ran 24 yards for a touchdown. The play was good for 46 yards. George Sauer went over from the 11 yard line for the last score after Hank Bruder had intercepted a pass. Although outplayed throughout the first half, the Giants began to click in the third quarter. The fine all-around play of Sarausky featured their rally. New York marched 80 yards to a touchdown with Sarausky carrying the ball across from the 1-yard marker for the first tally. Early in the fourth period, a 41-yard run by Kink Richards and a pass over the goal line from Sarausky to Leland Shaffer scored the second tally.

(CHICAGO) - The powerful Packers, champions of the Western Division closed their regular season by battling the Chicago Cardinals to a scoreless tie. Green Bay, using reserves during the greater part of the game, left the match in fine shape for next Sunday's league title clash with the Boston Redskins. A crowd of 5,000 persons saw the game, played in near-zero weather and on an ice-covered field. Outplaying Green Bay, the Cardinals drove to the Packer four-yard line once, but didn't have a scoring punch. They muffed two other scoring chances, but kept the Green Bay offensive from doing damage. Tiny Engebretsen missed a field goal attempt from the 27-yard line in the third period. Ernie Smith and Mike Mikulak were ordered from the game in the final period for trading punches. Arnie Herber and Clark Hinkle were sent into the Packer backfield in the last quarter after Joe Laws, Bobby Monnett and Swede Johnston had carried the Packer offensive load for most of the game. The other regular backs were given a rest.

Teams run onto Polo Grounds Field. Toss of coin. Packers throw back Boston team on kickoff play. Packer's Arnie Herber passes to Don Hutson for TD. Boston's star Cliff Battles leaves game with serious leg injury. Herber passes 52 yards to Johnny Blood McNally to eight yard line. Herber passes to Milt Gantenbein for TD and 14-6 lead.

Packers. Green Bay took the second half kickoff and went 74 yards in six plays. A pass from Herber to veteran HB Johnny McNally (aka Johnny Blood) covered 52 yards and set up an 8-yard scoring pass from Herber to end Milt Gantenbein that extended the Packers lead to 14-6. Things continued to get worse for Boston as their only healthy center, Frank Bausch, was ejected for fighting. Then, in the fourth quarter, Green Bay effectively put the game out of reach when guard Lon Evans blocked a punt by the unfortunate Riley Smith. The play started at the Redskins 22, and once Hinkle recovered the ball, Green Bay was on the three yard line. Bob Monnett, spelling Herber at tailback, ran two yards for the TD. The final score was 21-6 in favor of the Packers. Green Bay accumulated 220 total yards (to 130 for Boston) with 153 by passing. Herber accounted for 140 yards through the air as he completed 6 of 15 passes with two touchdowns and an interception. Don Hutson led all receivers with 5 catches for 76 yards and a TD. Clarke Hinkle rushed for 56 yards on 19 attempts. With Cliff Battles sidelined early, FB Don Irwin led the Redskins in rushing with 37 yards on 13 carries. Rentner was Boston’s top passer with 4 completions in 6 attempts for 60 yards. End Wayne Millner caught two passes, the only Redskin to do so. George Preston Marshall moved his franchise to Washington for 1937; he also signed a passing tailback from TCU, Sammy Baugh, who would elevate the aerial attack and take the team to the next level. But on this day, it was Curly Lambeau’s Packers at the top of the NFL heap.

January 10: Green Bay 42, Salinas 7
(SAN FRANCISCO) - The Green Bay Packers gave a convincing demonstration yesterday of why they rule the NFL with a crushing 42-7 victory over the Salinas Iceberg Packers, Pacific coast champions. Behind tremendous ground power and bullet-like passes, the national championship aggregation rolled .to six touchdowns, two in each of the first three periods. The coast team was so badly outclassed the game hardly developed into a contest. The Salinas squad nevertheless came up with the most thrilling play of the game. It was an 85-yard run of a kickoff to a touchdown, with Quarterback George Tharp taking the ball, returning it 45 yards and then lateralling to Loren Grannis, center, who raced on to score.

January 17: Green Bay 49, Los Angeles 0
(LOS ANGELES) - Crushing the pride of local pro football, the Los Angeles Bulldogs, the Packers started preparations today to meet the Bears here next Sunday. A crowd of 12,000 at Gilmore Stadium saw the Packers push the Bulldogs all over the lot. The top heavy score was a distinct surprise, the locals having defeated three NFL clubs, tied another and lost a 7-0 decision to the Bears. The Packers scored twice in the first period, three times in the second, once in the third and twice in the last quarter. The local pro club, with a record of 205 points scored to opponents 72 in nine games this season, was unable to get past midfield until the third quarter. The powerful Packers' forward wall smashed the Bulldogs' attack to pieces and the Wisconsin team swept up and down the field at will. The scoring stars were Don Hutson, who scored twice, once on a pass from Arnold Herber that was good for 67 yards, and Bob Monnett, who also scored two touchdowns. Ernie Smith, former University of Southern California tackle, kicked six out of six tries for extra points, and Paul Engebretsen, kicked for the other extra point.

(LOS ANGELES) - Managers of the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bears, barnstorming professional football clubs, dickered today for a rematch following their tie yesterday. With a victory apiece registered during the regular pro season, the deadlock failed to decide a rivalry that flared into open fisticuffs. Beattie Feathers, 177-pound Bear fullback, and 235-pound Lou Gordon, Packer tackle, were ejected from yesterday's game for fighting, and storm clouds hovered up and down the opposing fronts. A crowd of 10,000 saw the game. Trouble started when Arnie Herber, after firing the first Packer touchdown pass to Milt Gantenbein, left the field with a broken nose, charging the Bears slugged him.

After that Green Bay put on the pressure and gave one of the most brilliant exhibitions of offensive grid tactics ever seen here to rout the California team with a steady succession of touchdowns. Joe Laws culminated a 75-yard march with a 5-yard smash off tackle to tie the score in the first period. The Packers completed 12 of 15 passes for 453 yards. Running plays were good for 206 more yards. Green Bay piled up 15 first downs to four for the Lighthorse team.

January 26: Detroit 10, Green Bay 3
(LOS ANGELES) - A brilliant 84-yard touchdown run by Ace Gutowsky, plunging 195-pound fullback, gave the Detroit Lions a 10 to 3 victory yesterday over the Green Bay Packers, the team that defeated them twice during the past season. The former Oklahoma City university player, slanting off-tackle, dashed through the Packers' secondary and crossed the goal line standing up. Twenty-two thousand persons witnessed the game, and hundreds were turned away. The Packers held a 3-0 lead at the end of the first half due to a place kick by Ad Schwammel, former Oregon State player, 230-pound tackle, who sent the ball between the uprights from the 30 yard fine. Shortly after the third period started, Gutowsky placed the Lions in the lead, and to make their lead safe, Dutch Clark, former Colorado college star, drop kicked a field goal from the 20-yard line in the fourth quarter. Clark was bottled up most of the afternoon, although he figured in the sustained drive from the 35-yard line that placed him in a position to make the field goal. Likewise, the famous Herber to Hutson passing combination failed to work. The Lions threw 12 and completed only one, that from Clark to Caddell for 16 yards. The Packers threw 11, completing one, and that on interference. The Packers made 10 first downs to the Lions' 8, although the latter outcharged the Green Bay team, 184 yards to 102. The Lions' end play was marvelous to behold, and it nullified the superior power of the Packers' line. Butch Morse, Harry Ebding, Klewicki and Schneller played spectacuilar defensive ball at the wings all afternoon, rushing Herber so hard he could not get his passes away accurately, and tackling sharply on the Packers' thrusts at the tackles. Joe Laws, former Iowa back, and Bob Monnett, ex-Michigan State star, were the chief ground gainers for Green Bay. Sauer, formerly of Nebraska, and one of the Packers chief ground threats, was injured on the first play when tackled by Caddel, and had to leave the game.
GREEN BAY -  0  3  0  0 -  3
