Some More Retro-Packers

With the Bye Week coming up, there will probably be a corresponding reduction of Packers news, so we want to get back to sharing more of the historical items we have in the Packerville, U.S.A. archives. Here is a 1984 season preview magazine from The Sporting News, featuring WR John Jefferson and QB Lynn Dickey on the cover.

If you’re curious about the state of the N.F.C. Central Division in the mid-1980’s, this is the article for you.

This two-page feature on the Packers’ prospects for the coming season is an interesting read. Spoiler alert: things weren’t too good in Green Bay in those days.

After reading about the Packers, you could sit down with a pen and fill out your ballot for N.F.L. “Rookie of the Year,” sponsored by Old Spice.

If you read through the eligible names, there weren’t too many future legends-in-the-making that year. But there are a few… here and there.

To finish things off for the day, here is Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy’s Monday press conference.
