1968 IN REVIEW

Phil Bengtson, the architect of the great Packer defenses of the 1960s, took over as head coach following Vince Lombardi's move to the front office. Despite a successful debut against the Eagles, the Packers struggled to a 6-7-1 record, their first losing mark since 1958. Green Bay had suddenly become old, with the average age of the offensive starters being 29, and the defense 29 1/2. The kicking game as a disaster, with four different players taking a shot at the position. Bart Starr led the NFL with a 63.7 percentage completion mark, but missed part or all of eight games. Green Bay's defense remained strong, ranking third in yards given up and was tops against the pass for the fifth consecutive season. While many Packer fans felt that the 1968 season was an anomaly, the fact was the players from the Glory Years were getting old, and there were few replacements in the pipeline.

MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL - THE EARLY YEARS

Monday Night Football did not simply appear in 1970. There were several attempts to get Americans to watch football on days other than Sunday, and the Packers played a key role. Five Monday Night games were played in the 1950's, and in 1964, the Packers beat the Lions in a Monday night game. The NFL scheduled two Monday Night games in 1964, and one in 1965. An attempt in 1964 to play games on Friday nights was quickly dismissed due to criticism over the effect these games would have on high school football. Commissioner Pete Rozelle contracted with CBS to air one Monday night game during the 1966 and 1967 seasons. The St. Louis Cardinals played in both games, even though the team could not be considered a ratings grabber. They fell to the Packers in 1967. Seeing the success of the games, NBC followed suit by airing one AFL Monday Night game during 1968 and 1969. CBS increased its Monday night coverage to two games in 1968 and 1969, with the Packers beating the Cowboys in one of the 1968 games. In 1969, Rozelle approached the Hughes Sports Network, an entity wholly subsidized by reclusive billionaire Howard Hughes, with the proposed Monday night games. Feeling the heat, ABC, although still less than convinced, entered into a contract with the NFL to begin airing games on Monday night for the 1970 season.

SUPER BOWL 3 (January 12, 1969 at Miami)

NEW YORK JETS (12-3) 16, BALTIMORE COLTS (15-1) 7 - Jets quarterback Joe Namath "guaranteed" victory on the Thursday before the game, then went out and led the AFL to its first Super Bowl victory over a Baltimore team that had lost only once in 16 games all season. Namath, chosen the outstanding player, completed 17 of 28 passes for 206 yards and directed a steady attack that dominated the NFL champions after the Jets' defense had intercepted Colts quarterback Earl Morrall three times in the first half. The Jets had 337 total yards, including 121 rushing yards by Matt Snell.  Johnny Unitas, who had missed most of the season with a sore elbow, came off the bench and led Baltimore to its only touchdown late in the fourth quarter after New York led 16-0.
