January 2, 2006 : Mike Sherman fired as head coach
(Green Bay) - Green Bay fired coach Mike Sherman Jan. 2, a day after the Packers finished their worst season in 15 years.  "At the end of the day I felt like we needed to go in a different direction," Packers general manager Ted Thompson said at a news conference. The Packers closed their season with a win over Seattle Jan. 1 as Brett Favre threw his first touchdown pass in five games, but finished with a 4-12 record.  Sherman's first five years brought success but not another title in Green Bay. His record was 53-27 in the regular season, which was good enough to tie Steelers coach Bill Cowher for fifth among NFL coaches in their first 80 games. Sherman finished 57-39 in six seasons.  Things began unraveling early in 2005 with injuries to top wide receiver Javon Walker and running backs Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport as the Packers started 1-7.  Sherman, who signed a two-year contract extension in August, said throughout the year he wasn't concerned about his position and didn't feel he was coaching for his job. Thompson sidestepped
questions about Sherman's future in recent weeks and never gave him a public vote of confidence even after the Packers ended the season with a 23-17
win against the Seahawks.  Thompson said he would start interviewing head coaching candidates this week.  Sherman was just 2-4 in the playoffs despite
winning three consecutive division titles for only the fourth time in team history -- joining Vince Lombardi, who did it twice (1960-62, 1965-67) and Mike
Holmgren (1995-97). The other two coaches won Super Bowl titles, but a Sherman-led team never made it to the NFC championship game. 
January 12, 2006 : Mike McCarthy hired as head coach
(Green Bay) - Mike McCarthy was hired as coach of the Green Bay Packers, who hope the San Francisco 49ers' offensive coordinator can revive a team
coming off its worst season in 15 years. McCarthy, a former Packers assistant, received a three-year deal. He replaces Mike Sherman, who was fired Jan. 2
after a 4-12 season. General manager Ted Thompson touted McCarthy as someone who could return the franchise to a championship level. "We feel very
good about our future going forward," Thompson said. And McCarthy said that would happen. "There will be an unconditional commitment from Ted and
myself to bring the world championship back to Green Bay," McCarthy said. The 42-year-old McCarthy spent last season as the San Francisco 49ers'
offensive coordinator and was the Packers' quarterbacks coach in 1999 -- a forgettable 8-8 season under Ray Rhodes. Brett Favre struggled in his only
year with McCarthy, throwing 23 interceptions to 22 touchdowns. But Favre played much of the season with a sprained thumb on his throwing hand. Favre
has not committed to playing next season, and has hinted that the team's offseason moves would play a role in his decision. McCarthy was the Saints'
offensive coordinator from 2000-04 before going to San Francisco. The 49ers finished 4-12, ranking last in the league in yards per game (224.2) and 30th
in scoring (14.9 points per game). Thompson also interviewed Cleveland offensive coordinator Maurice Carthon, New York Giants defensive coordinator
Tim Lewis, Dallas offensive coordinator Sean Payton, San Diego defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, Chicago defensive coordinator Ron Rivera and the
Packers' current defensive coordinator, Jim Bates. It was not clear whether Bates will remain in his job under McCarthy.

2005 IN REVIEW
After their season ended with disappointing playoff losses the last four seasons the Packers entered the season, knowing the Brett Favre era was nearing its end as they
drafted QB Aaron Rodgers in the first round. From the start of the season it was obvious that the Packers were in for a long season as WR Javon Walker was injured and lost
for the rest of the season in a Week 1 loss to the Detroit Lions. The home opener would bring more frustration as the Packers comeback fell short in a 26-24 loss to the
Cleveland Browns. The struggles would continue the next two weeks as the Packers dropped to 0-4, with Favre increasingly becoming prone to mistakes from trying to do too
much. In Week 5 the Packers would take out all their early season frustrations on the New Orleans Saints winning their first game of the season 52-3 as Brett Favre led the
way with 3 TD passes. However it was a tiny oasis in a barren desert as the Packers would lose their next three as the injuries mounted with both RB Ahman Green and back
up Najeh Davenport being lost for the rest for the season. At 1-7 the Packers would see the emergence of a new go to running back as Samkon Gado had 103 yards rushing
and two touchdowns in a 33-25 win on the road over the Atlanta Falcons. The Packers misery though would go on to last the remainder of the season as Brett Favre threw a
career high 29 interceptions, as the Packers finished in last place with a terrible 4-12 record. Following the season Coach Mike Sherman would be replaced by Mike McCarthy
while Brett Favre spent the entire off-season contemplating retirement before ultimately deciding to return for another season.
THE COLLAPSE OF THE PACKERS
The streak came to an end in 2005. After playing winning football since 1992, the team suffered its worst season in 14 years, thanks in part to a series of crippling injuries.
The Packers would spend most of the season looking for running backs, and the lack of a rushing attack played a key role in the collapse and the end of the Mike Sherman
era:
RUNNING BACKS
* AHMAN GREEN - Green injured his thigh on October 23 when he took a handoff off right tackle and was tackled by Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson. Green aggravated the
injury, which had forced him to miss the previous game. He finished the day having rushed for 49 yards on 16 carries in the game and for 255 yards on the year. The next day,
it was learned the five-time Pro Bowl running back would miss the rest of the season after rupturing a tendon in his quadriceps. Despite his injury-shortened season, the
Packers re-signed Green to a one-year, $2 million contract, with an extra $3 million in incentives. After the 2006 season he became a free agent.
* NAJEH DAVENPORT - With Green ailing, Davenport took over as starter. In what would be his only start of the season, versus the Saints, Davenport scored two first-half
touchdowns before breaking his ankle. He was subsequently placed on injured reserve, effectively ending his season and his Packer career. The following year, he signed a
free agent deal with Pittsburgh.
* TONY FISHER - The four-year veteran started October 30 at Cincinnati, got through that contest, then complained of pain in the area of his shoulder blade. He underwent an
MRI exam, and played the remainder of the season in pain.
* SAMKON GADO - Gado made his NFL debut, only two weeks after being signed to the Packers roster, with an eight-yard carry on October 30. It was his only carry of the
game. One week later, he was given much more playing time against the Steelers, although Fisher was officially the starter of the game. Gado carried the ball 23 times for
62 yards and scored his first NFL rushing touchdown. On November 13, Gado started his first NFL game against the Falcons and rushed 23 times for 103 yards and two
touchdowns, and also caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Brett Favre. He became the first player in NFL history to score three touchdowns on his 23rd birthday. For the
next three weeks Gado excelled in the starting position. He recorded two more 100-yard performances - 111 against the Philadelphia Eagles and 171 against the Detroit
Lions - and scored a rushing touchdown in three straight games. H ended the season with 562 yards rushing.
* NOAH HERRON - He was signed off of the Steelers' practice squad, and ran for 123 yards on 48 attempts for a 2.6-yard average and two touchdowns.
* WALT WILLIAMS - Williams was a candidate to start for the Packers, before injuring a hamstring during practice on November 10. Re-signed by the Packers on October 25,
he had played at Cincinnati (Oct. 30) and vs. Pittsburgh (Nov. 6), making one catch for 18 yards and one special teams stop.
* RASHARD LEE - In seven games, with one start, Lee had 11 carries for 16 yards and one reception for 5 yards. On special teams, Lee returned 15 kickoffs for 319 yards
and posted seven coverage tackles.  On December 1, he became the fifth Packers running back on injured reserve, joining Green, Davenport, Walt Williams and Chaz
Williams.
WIDE RECEIVERS
* JAVON WALKER - After backing off of his threats to hold out and reporting to camp, Walker injured his ACL on a pass from Favre in the season opener. The Packers
placed Walker on injured reserve for the remainder of the season.
* ROBERT FERGUSON - He was lost to a knee injury in the final weeks of the season. Ferguson missed three games after suffering a torn lateral-collateral ligament in his left
knee during a loss at Minnesota October 23. Ferguson returned to practice on a full-time basis on November 18, Ferguson was taken by cart from the practice facility the
next day. Favre overthrew Ferguson, and Ferguson was pulling up but rookie safety Nick Collins didn't see the ball and bumped Ferguson, whose knee buckled. Ferguson
had his 2004 season cut short, missing the last three games, after he sustained head and neck injuries from a clothesline hit by Jacksonville safety Donovin Darius. He was
temporarily paralyzed after the hit. 
* TERRENCE MURPHY - The promising rookie was lost for the rest of the season because of a spinal-cord bruise sustained in Week 4. The wide receiver suffered the brunt of
a helmet-to-helmet hit from Carolina's Thomas Davis on a kickoff return. Murphy was taken off the field on a stretcher and later diagnosed with a narrowing of the spine near
the neck. The Packers cut Murphy in April 2006, and he would never play pro football again.

(GREEN BAY) - Brett Favre's offseason work paid off. Favre, who trained with a strength and conditioning coach in the offseason for the first time, completed 9 of 10 passes for 91 yards and a score. Favre led Green Bay on an 80-yard scoring drive in the second quarter, in which he completed 7 of 8 passes for 64 yards. He capped the series with a 23-yard strike to Donald Driver and then jumped into the arms of his center, Mike Flanagan, who missed most of last season following a knee operation. Favre's revamped offensive line, which lost stalwarts Marco Rivera and Mike Wahle to free agency, protected him well but didn't open many holes for Ahman Green, who carried eight times for 16 yards and had two of his team's six fumbles in the rain. Three were recovered by San Diego. The Chargers didn't fumble at all. But they did have their own weather woes as Nate Kaeding missed three field goal attempts in the fourth quarter, allowing Green Bay to win it on Ryan Longwell's 53-yarder with 33 seconds remaining. After Kaeding's third miss, J.T. O'Sullivan drove the Packers to the Chargers 35, and Longwell's kick barely cleared the crossbar.

(BUFFALO) - Happy with leading the Buffalo Bills to a preseason victory, quarterback J.P. Losman acknowledged there's still a few things he needs to learn. One's sliding to the turf to avoid getting hit. Another is how to celebrate a touchdown. The first-year starter appeared a little lost, not knowing what to do after his 1-yard scamper into the end zone opened Buffalo's scoring. It happened on the Bills' first series in front of a sellout house and in Losman's home debut since the 2004 first-round draft pick replaced Drew Bledsoe in February. Losman followed the touchdown by engineering scoring drives on Buffalo's next two possessions, finishing 7-of-14 for 59 yards passing with five carries for 36 yards. It was a much better performance after Losman managed one first down in his first four series in Buffalo's 17-10 win at Indianapolis last weekend. Special teams contributed with ReShard Lee 's 69-yard kickoff return and Drew Haddad 's 37-yard punt return setting up both of Buffalo's two first-half touchdowns. The Packers played with more cohesion than in their sloppy 10-7 win against San Diego last week. But they had difficulty generating offense after Brett Favre needed only one series to show he's ready for the regular season. Favre went 4-of-6 for 41 yards, capping a 75-yard, 13-play opening drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Ahman Green. 1st-round draft pick Aaron Rodgers struggled, finishing 4-of-9 for 21 yards and an interception in four series.

(GREEN BAY) - Tom Brady and Corey Dillon heeded their coach's advice to treat New England's trip to Green Bay just like a regular-season game. Brady guided the Patriots on five scoring drives, even though only one of them was longer than 41 yards, and Dillon ran for two touchdowns in a 27-3 rout of the Packers on a rainy Friday night. New England coach Bill Belichick had warned his players to view their first trip to Lambeau Field in eight years as more than a mere exhibition, and you can bet the Packers are glad this one didn't count. They had a forgettable first half that included numerous breakdowns on special teams and eight accepted penalties. Brett Favre threw two interceptions - a third was wiped out by a flag - and he lost receivers Javon Walker (finger) and Antonio Chatman (neck) on the same series. Things only got worse when Ahman Green fumbled the ball on the Packers' first snap after halftime. Linebacker Chad Brown punched the ball loose and Willie McGinest recovered Green's third fumble of the preseason at the Packers' 27, setting up Dillon's second TD run, from 3 yards out, for a 27-3 lead. Favre completed 9-of-21 passes for 69 yards and had a paltry passer rating of 11.9 before giving way to rookie Aaron Rodgers, whose unimpressive training camp continued with a showing of 5-for-9 for 52 yards with an interception while playing with the first string.

(TENNESSEE) - Mike Sherman is certain his Packers aren't ready for the regular season. For Jeff Fisher and his young Titans, go ahead and bring on the opener. Craig Nall tossed a 10-yard touchdown pass to Walt Williams early in the fourth quarter, and Mike Hawkins intercepted a pass in the end zone with 2:26 left. The Packers trailed 17-10 at halftime, but they rallied to snap a two-game losing streak with three interceptions in the second half. They helped Green Bay overcome two turnovers, three sacks allowed and 13 penalties for 121 yards. The Packers topped their point total through the first three preseason games, having come into this game with a league-low 20. The game started after a moment of silence for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. Both quarterbacks, Favre and Steve McNair, are Mississippi natives. They worked together Aug. 31 to fill a tractor-trailer with supplies for their home state.

(DETROIT) - Brett Favre's 15th season got off to a dreadful start. Two of Favre's three turnovers led to 10 points in a game in which scoring was scarce, helping the Lions beat the Packers. The Lions won their opener for a third straight year, but they hope this season doesn't wind up like the last two - or the two before that. Since 2001, the Lions have lost an NFL-high 48 games. Joey Harrington threw two touchdown passes , including one to rookie Mike Williams 'with 4:13 left, to give Detroit an early lead in the NFC North following Minnesota and Chicago losses earlier in the day. Favre then drove to Detroit's 12 before he was sacked twice and threw his second interception, a heave on fourth down from the 33 picked by Terrence Holt in the end zone. The three-time MVP finished 27-of-44 for 201 yards with two interceptions and one fumble. The Packers had their worst day offensively since Sept. 13, 1992, when Tampa Bay beat them 31-3, two weeks before Favre started his record streak of playing 227 straight games, including the playoffs. Green Bay didn't have a first down in the second half Sunday until its sixth drive.

August 8th 2005 - Once again, for the 28th time, the Packers were on the cover of Sports Illustrated during Training Camp time in 2005. Pictured going through a ropes drill is running back Ahman Green (#30), with fellow running backs Najeh Davenport (#44) and Chris Robertson (#38). The occasion for the cover appearance is that SI picked them to adorn their “Training Camp Kickoff” issue — probably due in part to the popularity of the Green Bay camp each year. Inside, the article opens with a two-page spread of the Packers’ Clarke Hinkle Field along Oneida Street, with Lambeau Field in the background. The headline “Bigger Than Ever — As training camps open across the nation, the ever-more-popular NFL is looking at a season like no other” starts the article, which has many Packer references. “It doesn’t matter how many Packers are griping about their contracts, or what little the team did to buttress a 25th-ranked defense, or how much better the other NFC North teams got in the off-season. Football fever is at an all-time high in Green Bay. In March the faithful came from as far away as Italy to attend the club’s inaugural fan convention. In June the Packers needed all of three hours to sell some 60,000 tickets (at $8 a pop) to Family Night, a combined practice and scrimmage with the Buffalo Bills (plus fireworks afterward) at Lambeau Field this Friday...” Most of the article talks about how popular the NFL had become (as of 2005) and the excitement surrounding various teams in the league. At the end, SI says: “In Green Bay the story line for much of the off-season was wideout Javon Walker’s contract woes. After leading the team in catches (89), receiving yards (1,382), and touchdowns (12), Walker said he was unhappy because the Packers wouldn’t redo a deal that calls for him to make $515,000 in salary this year, and he threatened to stay out of camp. The issue flared when quarterback Brett Favre criticized Walker in the media, saying the receiver should honor his contract. So last week, when Walker surprisingly showed up on the first day, he was the big story again. ‘Pretty weird,’ he said as he walked off the practice field in Green Bay last Friday. ‘But people love football. People love drama. I gave them both.’ ” (SOURCE: Packerville, USA)
Aaron Rodgers’s Very Long Draft Day
(New York Times, February 8th 2011)

In this video clip, ESPN’s Chris Berman, Chris Mortensen and Mel Kiper Jr. try to buck up Aaron Rodgers on draft day in 2005. At that point, Rodgers had already been handed the role of “guy stuck in the green room.” He was dropping on the draft board and being treated as if he had a contagious disease. The draft had only reached the 15th pick. Rodgers had nine more slots to fall, and many more minutes to squirm.

At the end of the clip, receiver Torry Holt, on the panel as an analyst, turns out to be an unlikely seer, saying definitively: “Aaron Rodgers will have the luxury to go play for Brett Favre and Green Bay. That’s where he’s going.”

In retrospect, it was a luxury for Rodgers. He had time to learn the Packers’ system in a no-pressure environment. Quarterback Alex Smith, taken No. 1 in that draft by the 49ers, has had six offensive coordinators in six seasons.

So why did Rodgers drop? Once he wasn’t chosen by the Niners — he played nearby at Cal — and was ignored by a few other teams, a lot of teams didn’t need a quarterback. But why didn’t the Niners’ new coach, Mike Nolan, take him?
WALKER GOES DOWN - The football, delivered from Brett Favre, arrived marginally ahead of Detroit Lions safety Terrence Holt. The strain of the collision was too much for the anterior cruciate ligament in Javon Walker's right knee. The ACL, roughly the thickness of a piece of twine, snapped in the Packers' opener on Sept. 11 and, with it, Walker's leverage for a new contract. The injury, if rehabilitation isn't a complete success, could cost the 26-year-old receiver tens of millions of dollars. "Everybody knows injury is part of this game," Packers center Mike Flanagan said. "It's why guys get paid the way we do. The worst-case scenario happened for Javon." (SOURCE: ESPN)

Green Bay - If he wouldn't have been able to lure Ted Thompson to be his general manager, Green Bay Packers President Bob Harlan would have been staring at an empty seat in a luxurious new office inside Lambeau Field with no options to fill it. That's how strongly Harlan felt he needed to separate the head coach's and general manager's duties in his front office and how strongly he felt Thompson should assume one of them. Early Wednesday afternoon, after returning from a meeting in New York, Harlan met coach and general manager Mike Sherman in his office and informed him that he was splitting the duties. A few hours later, Harlan offered the general manager's position to Thompson, the Seattle Seahawks' vice president of football operations and the only man Harlan sought for the position. Had Thompson turned him down, Harlan had no ready alternative to fill the GM spot and would have had to conduct a long search. But early Friday morning, after about nine hours of negotiations between lawyers for both parties, Thompson agreed to a five-year deal to become the team's 10th general manager.
(GREEN BAY) - The retirement of Reggie White's number couldn't inspire Green Bay past Cleveland. Trent Dilfer won for the first time in nine trips to Lambeau Field, guiding Cleveland over the Packers for new coach Romeo Crennel's first win. Dilfer threw an 80-yard touchdown pass to Braylon Edwards and a game-icing 62-yarder to Steve Heiden with 1:50 remaining. Dilfer, who lost six times as a starter at Green Bay, once as a reserve and another time as an observer, completed 21 of 32 passes for 336 yards, the second-highest total of his career, and three touchdowns. The only time he threw for more yards was on Sept. 15, 2002, when he threw for 352 against Arizona. Brett Favre joined Dan Marino and John Elway in the 50,000-yard passing club Sunday. Favre entered Green Bay's game against Cleveland 65 yards shy of the mark, and reached the milestone on a 17-yard pass to running back Ahman Green in the second quarter.

REGGIE WHITE DIES, NUMBER RETIRED
On the morning of December 26, 2004, White was rushed from his home in Cornelius, North Carolina, to a nearby hospital in Huntersville, North Carolina, where he was pronounced dead. White had suffered a fatal cardiac arrhythmia. The most likely cause of this, according to the Mecklenburg County Medical Examiner's Office, was the cardiac and pulmonary sarcoidosis with which he had lived for years. It was also stated that sleep apnea, which White was known to suffer from may have contributed to his death. His grave site is situated at Glenwood Memorial Park, Mooresville, North Carolina. During the 2005 season, two NFL teams and the University of Tennessee retired White's number 92 jersey. The University of Tennessee retired White's jersey at a halftime presentation on October 1, 2005 during their game against the University of Mississippi, the third such retirement in the modern era of football at the school; a commemorative sign was also unveiled in the south end of Neyland Stadium. During a halftime presentation at Lambeau Field on September 18, 2005, White became the fifth Green Bay Packer to have his number retired by the franchise. On December 5, 2005, the Philadelphia Eagles retired his jersey in a halftime ceremony during the Eagles' Monday Night Football game with the Seattle Seahawks, who were coached by Mike Holmgren, White's former coach in Green Bay. White became the first player in NFL history to have his number officially retired by multiple teams. The Packers and the Eagles also wore a helmet decal honoring White for the remaining games in the season. White's number was retired by the University of Tennessee in 2005 White's number was retired by the Packers in 2005. White was elected to the Professional Football Hall of Fame on his first ballot on February 4, 2006. He was enshrined at a ceremony on August 5, 2006 in Canton Ohio. White's widow, Sara White, delivered her husband's acceptance speech at the ceremony. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)

1996 champions are star-crossed (Green Bay Press-Gazette - December 27th 2004)
(GREEN BAY) - Tampa Bay's Cadillac Williams broke Alan Ameche's NFL record for most yards in his first three NFL games by rushing 37 times for 158 yards. Green Bay's Ryan Longwell missed an extra point for the first time in 157 attempts, and that was the difference as the Packers fell to 0-3 for the first time since Brett Favre was a sophomore at Southern Mississippi in 1988. The Buccaneers, 3-0 for the first time since 2000, got two touchdown receptions from Joey Galloway and two interceptions from Will Allen in snapping a 13-game road losing streak to the Packers. Williams, the first NFL rookie to start his career with three straight 100-yard games, has 434 yards rushing, besting Ameche's mark of 410 set in 1955 for the Baltimore Colts.

(CAROLINA) - Brett Favre showed he still has some Monday night magic - just not enough to prevent the Green Bay Packers from getting off to their worst start in 17 years. Favre threw four touchdown passes but couldn't overcome two early turnovers that the Carolina Panthers used to build a big lead and then held on for a 32-29 victory. The Packers fell to 0-4 for the first time since 1988. Rallying Green Bay from a 19-point third-quarter deficit, Favre threw two touchdown passes and for two 2-point conversions in the fourth quarter and had the Packers in position to possibly win the game on their final drive. But with running back Ahman Green on the sidelines with an injured knee and no timeouts left, Favre had to do it all on his own when Green Bay got the ball back with 1:58 to play. He completed two passes before Carolina stopped the Packers on a fourth-and-2. Favre threw the ball to Donald Driver past the first down line but Chris Gamble knocked the ball out of his hands and it fell incomplete. Jake Delhomme threw two touchdown passes and Stephen Davis ran for two more as the Panthers built an early lead and put themselves in position to ride out an easy win. Delhomme was 17-of-24 for 206 yards and Davis carried 19 times for 51 yards. Steve Smith, who scored three touchdowns last week against Miami, caught only two passes for 12 yards. Green, who ran for 119 yards and three TDs in a win over Carolina last season, was held to 36 yards before leaving the game with the leg injury in the third quarter. Trailing 26-7 midway through the third quarter, Favre turned it up a level. He led by example on an 80-yard scoring drive, sprinting up the middle for a 12-yard gain on third-and-8 then finishing it off with a 26-yard TD pass to Driver. Favre finished 28-of-47 for 303 yards and four touchdowns. It was his 19th game of four or more touchdown passes, second to Dan Marino's record 21. The pass to Driver was Favre's 50th touchdown pass on Monday Night Football, second only to Marino's 74, and it cut Carolina's lead to 26-3. The Panthers pushed it to 32-13 on Davis' second score of the game, a 1-yard run with 14:44 to play that gave them what seemed to be an insurmountable lead.

(GREEN BAY) - Brett Favre made the most of a makeshift offense and carried Green Bay to a much needed victory. Favre completed 19 of 27 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions in three quarters and the Packers earned their first win by routing New Orleans. After going three-and-out and giving up a field goal, Green Bay scored 52 unanswered points in ending a four-game skid at Lambeau Field that dated to last Dec. 12. Their 35-point first half outburst was their biggest one-half output since Dec. 6, 1992, against Detroit. Green Bay backup RB Najeh Davenport scored twice before leaving with an ankle injury that may sideline him for the rest of the year, and CB Al Harris picked off two passes. Davenport, who had two touchdowns in his second career start, broke his right ankle after being dragged down from behind by LB Courtney Watson on a 2-yard reception with 2:40 left in the first half. His ankle was pinned underneath, and he didn't put any weight on his right leg when helped off the field.

It wasn't Terrence Murphy's fault that he became the second biggest bust of the Ted Thompson era, but his status as a bust is undeniable. As sad as it is, the NFL is a business and although I'm sure Murphy would have been a great player, he never got the chance, and you better believe that if he was given a redo, Thompson would choose this one differently. Murphy's career ended after just three games due to a career-ending injury courtesy of a hit by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis. (SOURCE: Bleacher Report)
After starting running back Ahman Green went down with a quadriceps injury, Davenport took over as starter. In what would be his only start of the season, versus the Saints, Davenport scored two first-half touchdowns before breaking his ankle. He was subsequently placed on injured reserve. Davenport was released by the Packers on September 2, 2006, when NFL rosters were reduced to 53 players. Six days later, on September 8, 2006, however, Davenport was signed to the roster of the Pittsburgh Steelers. (SOURCE: Wikipedia)
(MINNESOTA) - Paul Edinger kicked a career-long 56-yard field goal as time ran out, lifting Minnesota to a victory over stunned Green Bay. After losing their last two games by a combined 58-13 score and allegations of sexual misconduct by several players on a boat party emerging, the Vikings trailed 17-0 in the third quarter and appeared headed for another ugly defeat. But Daunte Culpepper, who went 23-for-31 for 280 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, came to life - and Edinger came through with his third field goal of the game. Green Bay's Ryan Longwell tied it at 20 with 24 seconds remaining on a 39-yard kick after missing two earlier field goals.

Paul Edinger kicked the winning 56-yard field goal for Minnesota, the longest in Vikings history, in their October 23rd meeting with Green Bay.
(CINCINNATI) - Brett Favre threw five interceptions and came up short on a game-ending drive, preserving the Bengals’ victory. The Packers feel they’re never out of it as long as Favre is throwing. Favre drove them to the 28, where a fan ran out of the stands and plucked the ball from the quarterback’s passing hand after a play. Guards needed several minutes to run down the fan, giving both teams a much-needed breather. It finally ended with Favre throwing an underhand pass from behind the line of scrimmage, then falling on his back at the 13-yard line in exhaustion. He finished 26-of-39 for 279 yards.

CINCINNATI (AP) — The fan who ran onto the field during a Bengals game and took the football from Green Bay quarterback Brett Favre pleaded guilty Wednesday to charges of trespassing and disorderly conduct and was placed on probation. Hamilton County Municipal Judge David Stockdale sentenced Greg Gall, 31, of Cincinnati, to 15 months' probation and 230 hours of community service. While on probation, he is banned from Paul Brown Stadium and the Reds' Great American Ball Park. He also was fined $200.
On October 17, the Green Bay Packers brought Samkon Gado in for a workout. The personnel officials and coaches were won over by a 40-yard dash time of 4.43 seconds and signed Gado on the spot to their practice squad. Both Ahman Green and backup Najeh Davenport were eventually lost to season-ending injuries, forcing the Packers to promote Gado to the active roster. Gado made his NFL debut, only two weeks after being signed to the Packers roster, with an eight-yard carry on October 30, 2005 in a 21-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. It was his only carry of the game (pictured left). On Dec. 19, he had six carries for 45 yards against the Ravens before suffering a sprained knee. His season was over. Ultimately, his career in Green Bay pretty much was, too.

Gado's run 'short but sweet'
(Packers.com - June 30th 2012)
(GREEN BAY) - Troy Polamalu called himself an accidental hero. His 77-yard touchdown return of Brett Favre’s fumble set the stage for Pittsburgh’s 20-10 win over the Green Bay Packers, when both teams turned to their stingy defenses to bail out their injury-ravaged offenses. Favre's streak of 27 straight home games with a touchdown pass came to an end. Green Bay held the Steelers without a single third-down conversion, allowed just two field goals and a 20-yard TD drive. Not bad, but not as good as Pittsburgh. The Steelers forced three turnovers that they turned into 17 points, including Polamalu’s score. The Steelers became the first team since the 1989-90 San Francisco 49ers and the fourth team overall to win 11 straight road games. And they did it without QB Ben Roethlisberger (knee) and RB Jerome Bettis (thigh), who were joined on the sideline in the second half by starting tailback Willie Parker, who turned his left ankle. Duce Staley, who replaced Bettis and had his first carries since the AFC championship in January, ran for 76 yards and a touchdown on 15 carries. The Packers fell to 1-7 at the halfway point for the first time since 1986 under Forrest Gregg. They’ve been in every game until the closing minutes and have actually outscored their opponents 168-159 — a first for an NFL team that lost seven of its first eight.

Samkon Gado scores his first NFL touchdown in Green Bay's loss to Pittsburgh
(ATLANTA) - Green Bay is sure glad Samkon Gado put his medical career on hold. Making his first career start on his 23rd birthday, the Nigerian-born Gado scored three touchdowns and the Packers won for only the second time this season, upsetting first-place Atlanta. Brett Favre threw for 252 yards and came up with a great escape on a drive that led to Ryan Longwell's fourth field goal, a 51-yarder with 4:01 remaining that restored Green Bay's nine-point lead. Less than a minute later, rookie WR Roddy White finished off the Falcons with their sixth fumble of the day. Nick Barnett scooped up the ball and returned it to the Atlanta 2, where Gado powered into the end zone for his third TD. Gado, who was unemployed less than a month ago, was the fifth player to start at running back in Green Bay's revolving door backfield, after season-ending injuries to Ahman Green and Najeh Davenport.

(GREEN BAY) - For the second time this season, Paul Edinger kicked a winning field goal against Green Bay, a 27-yarder as time expired that gave the Vikings a 20-17 win Monday night and keep their playoff hopes alive. After struggling mightily on offense since quarterback Daunte Culpepper was lost for the season, the Vikings put together a solid showing behind Brad Johnson with 196 yards passing and running back Mewelde Moore, who had 122 yards on 22 carries. The 37-year-old Johnson set up Edinger’s kick with a nine-play, 58-yard drive in the final 3:03 after Green Bay tied it at 17. Minnesota coach Mike Tice shuffled his offensive line this week hoping to inject some life into the offense that struggled to just 137 yards last week against the Giants. Brett Favre finished the game 20-for-33 for 227 yards and two touchdowns. The win keeps the Vikings afloat in its hunt for the postseason, two games behind NFC North leader Chicago (7-3). Meanwhile, the loss puts the Packers (2-8) on the verge of ending an impressive streak — they haven’t had a losing season since Favre took over as the starter in 1992, a run of 13 years that’s best in the league. They have to win out to avoid snapping that run, an unlikely task with Chicago (twice) and Seattle (8-2) left on the schedule.

(PHILADELPHIA) - Without Donovan McNabb and Terrell Owens, the Philadelphia Eagles’ best scoring threat is a kicker. David Akers made four field goals and quarterback Mike McMahon played an efficient, error-free game, leading Philadelphia over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. The reigning conference champion Eagles snapped a four-game losing streak with their first win since Oct. 23 against San Diego. Samkon Gado ran for 111 yards and one touchdown for the Packers. Green Bay assured its first losing season since Brett Favre took over as starter in 1992, a run of 13 years that was the best in the league. McMahon completed 12 of 28 passes for 91 yards and ran for 29 yards. He led a 12-play, 60-yard drive that lasted 6:10 and ended with Akers’ 37-yard field goal that put the Eagles ahead 16-14 with 4:31 left. After Andrae Thurman fumbled the ensuing kickoff, Akers made a 33-yarder. Favre was intercepted by Rod Hood with 1:26 remaining, but a roughing penalty on rookie Trent Cole kept the drive going. Hood then picked off Favre in the end zone.

(CHICAGO) - Charles Tillman returned one interception of Brett Favre 95 yards to set up a field goal, and Nathan Vasher carried a fourth-quarter pick 45 yards for a clinching touchdown as the Bears ended Green Bay’s domination at Soldier Field. On a day when their offense relied on four field goals by Robbie Gould, Chicago prevented Favre from throwing a TD pass against them - he’d done so in an NFL-record 26 straight games. The Bears (9-3) got their first home victory against the Packers since 1993 and extended their winning streak to eight - their longest since the 1985 Super Bowl team started 12-0. Favre finished 31-of-58 for 277 yards for the Packers (2-10).

(GREEN BAY) - The Packers won it on Ryan Longwell's 28-yard field goal, but it was the running of Samkon Gado (171 yards, one TD) and a goal-line stand that was decisive. The Packers were backed up in their territory after the defensive stand - Na'il Diggs stopped the Lions' Jeff Garcia on a fourth-and-goal sneak. The Lions wrapped up Gado in the end zone with 6:59 remaining in regulation. Gado tried to toss the ball forward as he was being tackled and was flagged for intentional grounding, resulting in a safety that would have put the Lions ahead by 15-13. But officials huddled and overturned the call, saying it was a forward pass and Gado was outside the tackle box, giving the Packers another chance.

(BALTIMORE) - Years from now, Kyle Boller won’t care that the game meant nothing. The oft-criticized quarterback will remember that he outplayed Brett Favre. Boller put on a dazzling performance on a national stage and guided the Ravens to a rout of the Packers on Monday night. It was the low point of an awful season for the Packers, who absorbed their most lopsided loss since a 61-7 defeat at Chicago in 1980. Boller was 19-of-27 for 253 yards and three touchdowns before leaving with 8 minutes to go. There’s still no guarantee he will return as the starter next year, but for one night he looked like a No. 1 draft pick. Boller showed poise in the pocket, was accurate with his throws and didn’t commit a turnover. Unfortunately for the Ravens, his most effective outing as a pro produced a franchise record for points but came far too late to salvage a season that long ago turned sour. Favre, meanwhile, struggled from the outset in his final appearance on ABC’s “Monday Night Football.” The 15-year veteran has enjoyed many memorable moments on Monday night, but this was one he would prefer to forget. Favre was 14-of-29 for 144 yards and two interceptions before being replaced by Aaron Rodgers late in the third quarter. The two interceptions gave him a career-high 24 for the season, and it marked the first time in his illustrious career that he has gone three straight starts without a touchdown pass. One of the interceptions was by Deion Sanders, the 53rd of his career. Green Bay played the final three quarters without RB Samkon Gado, who left with a knee injury after gaining 45 yards on six carries.

(GREEN BAY) - With an aggressive defense and solid running game, the Chicago Bears already were shaping up as a contender. Now they've discovered the forward pass. Starting his first game of the season, QB Rex Grossman added a new dimension to the Bears' offense as Chicago clinched the NFC North title and a first-round playoff bye with a 24-17 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. It wasn't easy. Grossman watched helplessly as Brett Favre tried to rally the Packers one more time. Favre's 56-yard completion to Donald Driver put the Packers at the Bears 35 with less than a minute remaining, but a spike and consecutive sacks left him only with time for a fourth down heave that was picked off by Chris Harris as time expired. Grossman's statistics - 11-of-23 for 166 yards - hardly qualify as gaudy. But his deep passes, a threat the Bears didn't have under rookie QB Kyle Orton, kept the Packers defense on its heels. Meanwhile, too many of Favre's passes are falling into the wrong hands. He threw four interceptions - including, one that was returned 10 yards for a touchdown by LB Lance Briggs to put the Bears ahead 24-7 in the third quarter. Favre finished 30-of-51 for 317 yards with no touchdowns, He has thrown 28 interceptions this season, surpassing his previous career high of 24 in 1993. The Bears swept the Packers for the first time since 1991.
