Another Bad Season for Green BayEdit

Before the 1980 season even began, it seemed first-round draft pick Bruce Clark had the right idea when he bolted directly for the Canadian Football League, never playing a down for the Packers. Green Bay regrouped and started strong by outlasting the Chicago Bears in an overtime thriller in the season opener. But with 27 players on injured reserved during the course of the year, the team was unable to replenish its roster and Green Bay suffered their 7th losing season in 8 years.
