1964 IN REVIEW
The Green Bay Packers had become a mediocre team. Two losses by a single point, nagging injuries, the loss of offensive lineman Jerry Kramer and Paul Hornung's struggles as kicker following a one-year layoff left the Packers at 3-4 at the midway point of the season. After a loss to the Rams in Week 7, Vince Lombardi held a closed-door meeting with his players in the lockerroom. Green Bay turned their season around with a 5-1-1 finish to end up tied for second in the Western Conference with the surprising Minnesota Vikings. Green Bay's defense, the best in the NFL, recovered a league-high 25 of the 34 fumbles they forced. Meanwhile, the Packer running game remained tops in the NFL, and Bart Starr did not throw an interception in the final eleven games. Added all together, the Green Bay Packers were a better team than their 8-5-1 record indicated, and their fling with mediocrity would be brief.
THE AFL RAIDS THE PACKERS
The war between the AFL and the NFL hit the Packers for the first time in 1964. Three of  the first four draft choices by Green Bay decided to sign contracts with the rival league, which may have led to Vince Lombardi's decision later to sign Jim Grabowski and Donny Anderson to the richest contracts in franchise history. 2nd-round selection Jon Morris, a center from Holy Cross, signed with Boston, while two of their three 3rd-round choices also defected. Ode Burrell, a halfback from Mississippi State, signed with the Oilers, where he would contribute for the rest of the decade, and Joe O'Donnell, a guard from Michigan, inked  with Buffalo. In 1965, the AFL would make another raid on Green Bay, when the Oilers signed Larry Elkins, who was a consensus All-American his junior and senior years at Baylor. He was MVP of the 1965 Hula Bowl and set a school record with 12 receptions in one game. Elkins was actually the second of the Packers’ two first round picks, with the tenth pick of the draft. Donnie Anderson was picked seventh, thanks to a 1964 trade with the Eagles. Anderson would not join the Packers until 1966. Elkins never started a game with the Oilers and injured his knee his rookie season. He broke his collarbone his second season and decided to retire. 1966 saw the war between Green Bay and the AFL fully erupt. Looking for a replacement for his aging combination of Jim Taylor and Paul Hornung, Lombardi drafted Jim Grabowski in the first round. The Illinois standout was also the top choice in the AFL draft, by the expansion Miami Dolphins. They gave the Jets permission to negotiate with Grabowski, after it became apparent he would not sign with an expansion team. Green Bay signed Grabowski in December 1965 to a three-year deal, worth anywhere from $250,000 to nearly $400,000, depending on the media source. Peace with the AFL came six months later.
