The 1950 Green Bay Packers season was their 32nd season in the National Football League. The club posted a 3-9 record under coach Gene Ronzani, earning them a fifth place finish in the National Conference.

Offseason[edit | edit source]

To get the franchise on a firm financial footing, the club started selling stocks publicly for the first time. The stock drive netted $118,000. To replace Curly Lambeau, the Packers named Gene Ronzani as their new coach and Vice President. The year also saw another change as the team changed its colors to green and yellow; from the navy that the club had been wearing.[1]
