1969 IN REVIEW
Green Bay went into the 1969 campaign with a theme - The Pack Will Be Back. Bumper stickers and a media campaign highlighted the new theme. For half the
season, the dream looked real as the Packers sat at 5-2, a game behind Minnesota. Three straight losses in November put an end to any playoff hopes. By winning
three of their last four, Green Bay managed to finish third for the second straight season. More and more players from the championship days were leaving the scene -
Jerry Kramer, Forrest Gregg, Zeke Bratkowski and Bob Skoronski retired, Ron Kostelnik and Tom Brown were traded. Gregg would come out of retirement, but the
exodus was underway. Vince Lombardi also left the stage, as he became the head coach and GM of the Washington Redskins in February. Head Coach Phil Bengtson
was named general manager in March.
RICH MOORE - 1ST-ROUND BUST FOR THE AGES
As the glory days of the Lombardi era continued to fade more and more into the rearview mirror, the Packers continued to struggle with finding replacements for their
aging stars. Along the defensive line, Willie Davis (34) and Henry Jordan (34) were showing their age, while Lionel Aldridge, Bob Brown and Jim Weatherwax were
showing no signs of being of similar talent or were battling nagging, consistent injuries. The search for another replacement set the stage for one of the worst draft
moves in franchise history. Out of Villanova University, Rich Moore was a 6-foot-6, 280-pound giant, and head coach Phil Bengtson pictured him as another Merlin
Olsen. Green Bay took him with the 12th pick in the '69 draft over the objections of the scouting staff. They passed on such future stars as Fred Dwyer, Gene Washington
and Ted Hendricks. "Rich Moore was a disaster," said Pat Peppler, the team's director of player personnel at the time. "Phil Bengtson fell in love with his size." After
joining the Packers, he lasted only 20 games over two years. He never started one game, and never recorded a sack. By the summer of 1971, it was clear Moore would
never live up to his pre-draft billing, even when the team tried to move him to the offensive line. He suffered strained knee ligaments, and the Packers were lucky to find one
team willing to deal with. They sent him to New England for LB John Bramlett, who had been the Patriots' defensive player of the year in 1970 and was a two-time AFL
All-Star. In a sad ending to the story, Moore never played for the Pats, after being placed on their injured reserve, and Bramlett was cut five weeks after being acquired by
Green Bay.

(GREEN BAY) - Mike Mercer, the AFL reject who has found a home with the Packers, booted five field goals Saturday night to boost the Packers to a topsy-turvy exhibition victory over the Giants. Mercer, who played for Kansas City against the Packers in the first Super Bowl, split the uprights from 17 yards out and 21 seconds showing on the clock to bring Green Bay back from a two-point deficit. LB Henry Davis picked off a Don Horn pass and returned it 22 yards for a touchdown. That put the visitors ahead, 21-12, with 13:15 left. Rookie Dave Hampton, whose running sparked the Packers, put Green Bay back in the game with a 10-yard dash at 7:37. Willie Wood intercepted a pass at midfield, but the Packers gave the ball back to the Giants when Hampton fumbled at the New York two. Three plays later Doug Hart picked off a Milt Plum pass at the New York 18, setting up Mercer's field goal.

(MILWAUKEE) - The Bears, stymied throughout the first half, unleashed a powerful, time-consuming ground game and capitalized on the breaks in the final two periods to defeat the Packers in a nationally televised exhibition game Saturday night. Behind 9-3 at the intermission, the Bears scored on a 30-yard pass from Jack Concannon to Dick Gordon and three field goals by Mac Percival in the second half. The Packers, who had things their own way in the first two periods although unable to score a touchdown, failed to move consistently atter the half.

((DALLAS) - Fired by Dan Reeves' 58-yard touchdown pass and a fantastic 18-yard scoring catch by Bob Hayes, Dallas trounced the Packers Saturday night. With a sellout crowd of 72,000 roaring its approval in the storied, old Cotton Bowl, the Cowboys dominated the Packers in every department. It was only Dallas' third victory in 10 exhibition games with the Packers, who have twice knocked them out of NFL titles in the fading moments.

(GREEN BAY) - Travis Williams, showing the brilliance of two years ago when he ran four kickoffs back for touchdowns, sparked the Packers to a come-from-behind exhibition victory over the Steelers Saturday night. The veteran speedster zipped 10 yards to his first touchdown, giving the Packers their first lead of the night, 21-16, midway in the third period. Three minutes later, Travis broke through the line, turned right to daylight, then simply outran everyone on a 44-yard-scoring dash.

(GREEN BAY) - The Packers opened their 50th National Football League season by blanking the Bears, 17-0 in the 101st renewal of their league-founding rivalry. Bart Starr collaborated with speedy Travis Williams on a 31-yard touchdown pass midway through the first period, Jim Grabowski bulled into the end zone from the one in the fourth quarter and Mike Mercer booted a 32- yard field goal for all the Packer scoring. The Packer defense contained Chicago's Gale Sayers, allowing the shifty runner 31 yards in seven carries in the first half and not more in the final two periods. Commissioner Pete Rozelle was in attendance.

(MILWAUKEE) - Jim Grabowski took a swing pass from Bart Starr and bulled into the end zone to break a 7-7 deadlock and give the Green Bay Packers a 14-7 win. Dave Hamption. the Packers' exciting rookie from Wyoming, took the second half kickoff 87 yards for a touchdown and a 7-0 lead but San Francisco tied it moments later when John Brodie fired an 80-yard bomb to Clifton McNeil. When a tie appeared all but inevitable, with the 49ers in a menacing first-and-goal position at the 7, Herb Adderley charged into the center of the screen to waylay a Brodie pass in the final seconds and put a dramatic period to the proceedings.

(MINNESOTA) - A punishing defense and capitalizing on the opposition's mistakes - once the hallmarks of the Green Bay dynasty - were the tools the Minnesota Vikings used to defeat the Packers, 19-7. The Vikings defense stopped the Packer running game and threw Bart Starr to the ground eight times for losses of 63 yards. Fred Cox kicked four field goals for Minnesota, ranging from 26 to 41 yards. He also kicked the extra point in the second period, after halfback Dave Osborn ran three yards for the Vikings' only touchdown. The Packers scored their only touchdown and conversion with only five seconds to play in the game — thus depriving Minnesota of its first shutout in 115 National Football League games. The game was played at the University of Minnesota due to a Twins playoff.

Joe Namath graced the cover of this particular publication in the summer of 1969, and below are the pages dedicated to the Green Bay Packers. This season would prove to be another difficult post-Lombardi era year for our team, as they would finish with an 8-6-0 record for third place in the N.F.L. Central Division. The years of relative futility had only just begun. (SOURCE: Packerville, USA)
(DETROIT) - The Bart Starr to Carroll Dale passing combination proved too much for Detroit as the Green Bay Packers beat the Lions 28-7 in a rainy encounter. Green Bay jumped out to a 14-0 lead in the first quarter with the first touchdown coming on a two-yard run by Travis Williams and the second on a 40-yard pass play from Starr to Dale. An 11-yard Starr-to-Dale pass and another of 27 yards set up the first score. Detroit's first-string quarterback, Bill Munson, suffered a fracture to his right wrist - his throwing arm - just prior to the fourth quarter. He was replaced by Greg Landry. Lions officials said Munson could be lost to the team for five weeks. In the first half alone, Starr hit Dale five times for 140 yards. He also connected on a four-yard scoring pass to Dale in the third period. The Lions came back to score 10 points in the second period on a three-yard run by Mel Farr and a 24-yard field goal by Eroll Mann. Farr also ran for a three-yard touchdown on the last play of the third quarter. After killing time by keeping the ball on the ground in the final period as he protected the Packers' lead, Starr hit Dave Hampton for a 48-yard pass that took the Packers to the Lions' one-yard line. Hampton then plunged over the final score.

Something Packer fans had a hard time getting used to in 1969 - Vince Lombardi coaching the Washington Redskins
(LOS ANGELES) - Bruce Gossett kicked two field goals for the Los Angeles Rams but it's the one he didn't try that really put the boot to the Green Bay Packers. Los Angeles had the ball on the Green Bay 11-yard line with six seconds left in the first half, in position for an almost certain three points for a kicker of Gossett's ability. So, quarterback Roman Gabriel shunned a field goal try and whipped a touchdown pass to Wendell Tucker, which gave the Rams a 27-14 lead en route to a 34-21 victory. "It was a bonus for us to get seven points," said Los Angeles Coach George Allen of Gabriel's clutch touchdown pass in he first half. "I think we would have settled for three." So would the Packers, who had built momentum by scoring touchdowns on passes from Bart Starr to Boyd Dowler and Elijah Pitts after the Rams had built a 20-0 lead. The 34 points - most against Green Bay since 1961 - came on Gabriel's pass to Tucker, a 51-yard bomb to Les Josephson, two short Gabriel runs and Gossett's field goals. Gabriel completed 17 of 28 passes for 197 yards and has yet to be intercepted this season. His scoring strike to Tucker was his 1,012th completion, breaking the Los Angeles career record held by Norm Van Brocklin.

(GREEN BAY) - Donny Anderson got his chance, and he made the most of it. Anderson lost his starting status to Travis Williams during the preseason when an injury slowed the former Texas Tech All-America. Last week, Williams was injured, and Anderson, who carried the ball only twice this season in five games, was again in the No. 1 backfield. Anderson reeled off 114 yards in 18 carries, his best single-game effort as a pro, to lead Green Bay to a 28-10 win. Prior to Sunday, Anderson's best day rushing was 101 yards against Atlanta last season. The Packers also scored on Dave Hampton's one-yard burst, a three-yard pass from Bart Starr to Marv Fleming, and defensive back Herb Adderley's record-padding 80-yard scamper with an intercepted pass. It was Adderley's seventh touchdown with an interception in his nine-year NFL career, breaking his old mark of six. Atlanta scored in the third period, going 61 yards in 13 plays. Bruce Lemmerman, in his first pro start as quarterback, ran 20 yards to highlight the drive, then scored on a one-yard sneak. That pulled the Falcons to within four points of the Packers, 14-10. But the Packers took the kickoff and put together a 90-yard TD march. Adderley's theft put the game out of reach.

(PITTSBURGH) - Bart Starr, who came off the bench in the third period, hurled a 43-yard touchdown pass to Carroll Dale with 4:46 left to give the Green Bay Packers a 38-34 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. Starr's pass snapped the Steelers' hopes for their first victory after five defeats. Gene Mingo recovered his own short kickoff and then booted a 32-yard field goal that gave Pittsburgh a 34-31 lead with 5:02 gone in the final quarter. Dick Shiner, who entered the game early in the fourth period to replace Terry Hanratty who was injured, threw a 53-yard pass to Roy Jefferson, the NFL's leading pass receiver, to bring the Steelers even at 31-31. Seconds earlier, Travis Williams put Green Bay ahead 31-24 when he punched over from the one-yard line. Williams earlier electrified the crowd of 46,403 when he scored on an 83-yard punt return and a 96-yard kickoff return.

(BALTIMORE) - Johnny Unitas passed for two touchdowns while Tom Maxwell and Bubba Smith blocked field goals as the Colts defeated the Green Bay Packers, 14-6. With the Colts leading 7-6 in the second quarter, the Packers attempted a field goal from the Baltimore 45 yard line. Maxwell, a rookie cornerback, blocked Mike Mercer's kick and the Colts recovered the ball on the Green Bay 49. The Colts then drove to the Green Bay three yard stripe in 11 plays and Unitas followed with a touchdown pass to Ray Perkins. The Colts' first touchdown, a 51-yard pass from Unitas to Tom Mitchell, came with 4:49 left in the first quarter. Mitchell, subbing for the injured John Mackey, then wrenched his left knee on the Colts' kickoff following the touchdown and had to leave the game. The Colts lost another receiver, Jimmy Orr, because of a muscle pull, also in the second quarter. Mercer kicked two field goals in the first quarter to account for all the Packers' scoring. Following Herb Adderly's interception of a Unitas pass at the Green Bay 35, the Packers moved to the six where Mercer booted a 14 yard field goal. Green Bay was helped by a roughing the kicker penalty when the Packers punted from their 41 which allowed them to keep the ball during their drive. Mercer's other field goal, a 47-yarder, came after the Packers had moved to the Colts' 40 following Baltimore's first touchdown. Neither team scored in the second half as the Colts were hampered by a lack of healthy receivers and the Packers' substitute quarterback Don Horn was unable to move the ball. Horn was playing for Bart Starr who was suffering from a sore arm.

(MILWAUKEE) - Three field goals by Fred Cox and a last minute interception by Bobby Bryant powered the Minnesota Vikings to a 9-7 victory over the Green Bay Packers. The victory gave the Vikings an 8-1 record and virtually assured them of the Central Division championship. Cox kicked his three-pointers from 10, 12 and 20 yards to provide Minnesota with its only points of the day. But it was enough. Green Bay's defense outplayed its Viking couterpart throughout, and the Packer offense, with quarterback Bart Starr going the entire distance, finally got untracked in the final period. But, after Starr's passes to Dave Hampton and Travis Williams moved the Packers from their own 20 to the Minnesota 34, Starr underthrew Hampton, who was racing toward the end zone, and Bryant picked it off. Minnesota then ran out the clock with Dave Osborn grinding out yardage on the ground.

(GREEN BAY) - Errol Mann, a Packer reject, kicked three field goals and Greg Landry ran for a touchdown to pace the Lions over Green Bay. The victory kept alive Detroit's hopes of catching the Minnesota Vikings in the Central Division race, and just about sealed Green Bay's fate to a third-place finish for the second straight year. It was the first time since 1959 that the Packers have lost three straight games. Detroit now has won four in a row. Mann, who was the Packer kicker briefly last year, was perfect on his first three kicks, then was wide to the right from the 43 with less than two minutes remaining in the game. Taking advantage of Green Bay errors, Detroit ran up a l6-0 first half advantage. Mann's 23-yard field goal capped a 55-yard drive that stalled on Green Bay's 16. The next three-pointer, this one from the 21, came four plays after Elijah Pitts fumbled a Detroit punt and the Lions' Ed Mooney recovered on the Packer 19. Cornerback Lem Barney intercepted Don Horn's pass on Detroit's 10 and picked his way upfield to the Packer 29. Landry's passing and rushing moved the Lions downfield to the Packer four, where his completed pass to Earl McCullough in the end zone was ruled invalid because the ball hit the goal post. On the next play, Landry faded to pass, found all of his receivers covered and ran across the goal untouched. Mann's extra point made it 13-0 and the kicker's 31 -yard field goal with 32 seconds remaining in the second period boosted the Lions to their insurmountable halftime lead.

(MILWAUKEE) - Don Horn fired touchdown passes to Donny Anderson and Carroll Dale to lead the Green Bay Packers to a 20-10 victory over the New York Giants. Horn, who took over the signal calling reigns for the injured Bart Starr, directed the Packers to their sixth victory in 11 outings. New York has lost seven in a row. The Giants scored first when Pete Gogolak booted a 14-yard field goal midway through the initial period. But, Green Bay came right back with a 95-yard march that ended when Horn and Anderson collaborated on a 39-yard touchdown pass. Travis Williams' 57-yard scamper on a punt return put Green Bay in scoring position again, and Horn immediately cashed in the opportunity. The young quarterback, after losing nine yards to a Giants' blitz, fired a pass to Carroll Dale at the five yard line. New York's Carl Lockhart, attempting to intercept, bobbled the ball and Dale pulled it in, side stepped defender Scott Eaton and walked into the end zone. The extra point attempt failed when Horn fumbled the snap from center. With only 55 seconds remaining in the first half, Fran Tarkenton moved the Giants 75 yards in three plays for another TD. The veteran quarterback connected with Aaron Thomas for the final 35 yards, pulling New York to within three points, 13-10, at the half. The final Packer TD came in the third period when Travis Williams broke through the right side of the line, shook off several would be tacklers and streaked 27 yards into the end zone. Bart Starr was lost for the remainder of the season. Booth Lusteg replaced Mike Mercer as the kicker.

(CLEVELAND) - Leroy Kelly ran for 151 yards, the NFL's best individual performance of the season, and the defense held the Green Bay Packers in check as the Cleveland Browns closed their home season with a 20-7 victory. Kelly ran 14 times for 118 yards in the first half and Bill Nelsen completed nine of 18 passes for 116 yards, including a 30-yard touchdown to Paul Warfield, as the Browns built a 13-0 halftime lead. Don Cockroft, who had made only eight of 19 previous field goal attempts, booted 20 and 45-yard field goals for the other Browns' scores in the first half. Cleveland padded its lead in the third quarter when safety Ernie Kellerman ran an interception 40 yards for a touchdown. Kelly's 151 yards came on 22 carries as the Century Division champions upped their record to 9-2-1 before 82,137 fans. It was the 11th straight home crowd of more than 80,000 for the Browns and set a season record of 663,892 for seven regular games and the pre-season doubleheader. The Packers (6-6) failed to penetrate Cleveland's 40 until the fourth quarter. The Browns lost their bid for their first shutout of the season with 1:46 left to play, when Don Horn threw 29 yards to Dave Hampton for a touchdown. It was the Browns' first win over the Packers since 1956. The Browns lost four regular season games and a championship game to the Packers in the intervening years. The Browns gave up only four first downs and 90 total yards in the first half. Horn completed only three of 10 passes for 45 yards, and Travis Williams led the Packers rushers with 28 yards in seven carries. The Browns, meanwhile, picked up 13 first downs and totaled 273 yards in the first half.

(CHICAGO) - Don Horn cranked up his passing arm and drove the listless Green Bay team to three third quarter touchdowns as the Packers rolled to a 21-3 victory over Chicago. Horn's chief accomplice in the third quarter eruption was Travis Williams. He scored the Packer's first touchdown on a 39 yard run which knifed through the Bear line. Then he got behind Dick Daniels and took a Horn pass 60 yards into the end zone. In between Williams' touchdowns, Horn hit Marv Fleming from 10 yards out for another six points. Until Horn and the Packers came to life, the game was a listless, scoreless scuffle between two one time giants of pro football who are now far out of the money. The Packers could console themselves with their seventh victory in 13 starts. For the Bears, it was their 12th defeat of their worst season in history against only one victory. As usual, Gale Sayers provided the Bears with one of their few shreds of class. He ripped off 90 yards rushing to bring his league leading total to 972.

(GREEN BAY) - Don Horn passed for a team record 410 yards and tied another club mark with five touchdown passes, leading the Green Bay Packers to a 45-28 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. Horn completed 22 of 31 passes, including eight in a row at one point, as the Packers charged from a 14-7 deficit with a 24-point explosion in the second quarter to take a 31-14 halftime lead. The Cards never got closer than 10 points behind thereafter as Horn passed for touchdowns of 7 and 43 yards to Boyd Dowler, 34 and 10 yards to Carroll Dale and 12 to Travis Williams. A five-yard touchdown run by Dave Hampton and a 28-yard field goal by Boot Lusteg rounded out the Green Bay scoring. St. Louis scored two touchdowns in the first quarter on an 18-yard pass from Charley Johnson to John Gilliam and an 88-yard runback of a fumble recovery by Larry Wilson. The Cardinals threatened to come back into the game in the third quarter as Gilliam returned the second half kickoff 100 yards for a touchdown and seconds later Roger Wehrli intercepted a Horn pass and returned it to the Green Bay 23.

"Next up in the vast collection of books about the Green Bay Packers is a rare volume that we didn’t know existed until a few years ago. It is Young Sports Photographer with the Green Bay Packers, by John Biever (with George Vecsey). Biever is the son of long-time Packers official team photographer Vernon Biever, who sadly left us during the team’s championship season of 2010. Still behind the camera, John Biever currently works for Sports Illustrated." - Packerville, USA for more photos and content
On the heels of his very successful diary of the 1967 season, Instant Replay, Green Bay Packers legendary G Jerry Kramer wrote Farewell to Football. After eleven seasons with the Packers, Kramer had decided to retire from the National Football League and enter the business world. This book tells of that transitional season of 1968 and his moving on in life. - Packerville, USA for more photos and content
"We have a much lesser known work in our presentation of books about the Green Bay Packers. Carroll Dale Scores Again! is about the life (up to that point) of the Packers’ All-Pro WR in the Lombardi Era, with an emphasis on his Christian faith. It even boasts a Forward written by Coach Lombardi himself."   - Packerville, USA for more photos and content
"Another lesser-known book in the collection of Green Bay Packers volumes is this one by former assistant and head coach Phil Bengston. Packer Dynasty starts with his journey from the San Francisco 49ers to Vince Lombardi’s staff in Titletown, and has great insight into those years from the viewpoint of an assistant. It was written while he still had one year to go as Packers head coach." - Packerville, USA for more photos and content
