1957 1959

The 1958 Green Bay Packers season was their 38th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 1-10-1 record under coach Ray McLean, earning them a last-place finish in the Western Conference and the worst record ever posted by a Packers team. In the immortal words of New York sportswriter and Green Bay native Red Smith: “they overwhelmed one opponent, under whelmed ten, and whelmed one." [1] McLean would not return to Green Bay in 1959, and his dismissal paved the way for the historic hiring of Vince Lombardi.
