Green Bay Packers Coach Dan Devine Broke His Leg in a Disastrous Debut 

Packers-Giants, 1970, Lambeau Field. Dan Devine in his first game as Head Coach. Giants QB was Fran Tarkenton (who started as a Vikings in the early 60s, was traded to the Giants in 1967, and back to the Vikings in 1972)...

Packers started the scoring with a 100 yd missed FG return...

gave up two TDs in six seconds...

trailed 42-24 at the end of the 3rd Qtr...

Dan Devine's lower leg was broken in two places during a Packers' interception of Tarkenton...

closed to 42-38...

then Giants hiked it over their punters head into the end zone...and Giants recovered for a Packers safety (42-40) instead of a Packers TD...

Packers drive to the Giants 36 and in range for a 43 yd FG (the game was in 1971, and the goal posts were still at the goal line, not the end line)...

EDIT: And threw an interception and never got off a kick...

Cheesey (2h) : Hi Kevin! Yes, I'm still alive. Just turned 67 a few days ago.
Zero2Cool (2h) : Alan has entered the building!!
dfosterf (2h) : Cutting Bowden is odd. I do remember reading he needed to work on his velocity, but don't even know how fixable that is
Zero2Cool (2h) : Packers signed a QB today
Zero2Cool (2h) : Packers long snapper Peter Bowden has been released to sign Jacob Eason.
wpr (4h) : I heard Reed tweeked his ankle and his youth camp.
beast (4h) : I believe NJI is usually used for pre-NFL injuries (rookies) and vets that got injured doing something they weren't supposed to.
beast (4h) : Might be interesting to hear how Reed got injured, as I believe NJI is non-football and teams don't have to pay you list.
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : Love won't practice until new deal is agreed. Ok, my stance changed
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : TRAIIIIINNNNNING CAMP!!! let's fookin go!!!
Zero2Cool (22-Jul) : Jayden Reed placed on Non-Football Injury list
beast (21-Jul) : Yeah with the way the cap went up, don't be surprised if the new good QB gets more than $55 million per season
Zero2Cool (21-Jul) : Kenny Clark. Extended!!
buckeyepackfan (21-Jul) : The "raw" number will probably be in that area. The numbers to look at are signing bonus. Guaranteed money, and Salary Cap Hit each year.
dfosterf (21-Jul) : Those numbers align with my guesstimate. Might find out tomorrow
Zero2Cool (21-Jul) : Saw some rumor the Love contract is around 5 years $280m. There's no way.

Zero2Cool (18-Jul) : Cobb has NOT retired. open to playing in right situation
Zero2Cool (18-Jul) : Randall Cobb retires, joins broadcast for SEC games

Zero2Cool (18-Jul) : Story goes, Packers felt he'd be on board cuz he's basically Deebo.
wpr (17-Jul) : I was disappointed the Packers didn't get the chance to draft Aiyuk. 10 minutes later I changed my mind.
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Zero, absolutely! Reading comments from offseasn workouts all the players+coaches say the same
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : Send him to Dolphins haha
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : 49ers All-Pro WR Brandon Aiyuk has officially requested a trade after an offseason of unsuccessful attempts to reach an extension.
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : My comment was not. I think offense starting off ahead of last season should be a great sight to see!
wpr (16-Jul) : It was only hyperbole people.
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : And that's with what we know unless a training camp darkhorse emerges
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Wilson vs Dillon for RB
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Just depends how many they want at each position but wrs 1-4 seem set with Melton vs Heath and Wilson v
Mucky Tundra (16-Jul) : Outside of some of the starting oline, the offense feels pretty locked in
Zero2Cool (16-Jul) : I think there are some battles, but seeing hte offense is gonna be must see for me
wpr (16-Jul) : this year no one is safe. Battles at every position!!!!1!
