2006 IN REVIEW
The Packers who had hopes of improving off a 4-12 season with new Coach Mike McCarthy didn't start off on the right foot as they were shutout in their season opener at Lambeau Field by the rival Chicago Bears 26-0. After losing their first two games at home, the Packers earned their first win in Detroit beating the Lions 31-24 as Brett Favre passed the 400 career touchdown milestones with 3 TD passes and 340 yards passing. However, the Packers would
continue to struggle as they dropped their next two to enter the bye week 1-4. Following the bye week, the Packers played much better, as they won three of their next four games. However, at home their struggles continued as they were shutout for the second time at Lambeau Field by the New England Patriots 35-0, as Brett Favre missed the second half with an injury, as back up Aaron Rodgers struggled completing just 4-of-12 passes for 32 yards, before getting injured himself. While Rodgers was lost for a season, Favre shook of the injuries and continued his streak of starts, which at season's end was 257, including playoff games. However after two more losses it was going to take a miracle for the Packers who were 4-8 to make the playoffs in 2006. That's not to say the Packers were going to give up as they stunned the San Francisco 49ers on the road 30-19 as Donald Driver had a stellar game with 169 receiving yards. After struggling at home all season the Packers kept their faint playoff hopes alive by beating the Lions and Minnesota Vikings to improve to 7-8 heading into the final game of the season a rematch with the Bears in Chicago. With the Bears-Packers game taking place in prime time the Packers knew when kickoff arrived if they had a chance to make the playoffs. Unfortunately for the Packers, they were not able to get the help they need, but they beat the Bears any way 26-7 finishing with an 8-8 record. Following the season Brett Favre would not mull retirement long as he announced his intentions to return early, with several of Dan Marino career passing records in reach.
PACKERS HEAD COACHING DEBUTS
Mike McCarthy became the first Packers coach to face the Bears in his debut since Vince Lombardi in 1959. The game also kept one of the oddest NFL facts intact - no Packer coach has played his first official league on the road:
* CURLY LAMBEAU (October 23, 1921) - Green Bay 7, Minneapolis Marines 6 (Hagemeister Park) - After the Marines took the lead on a 3-yard run by Ben Dvorak, the Packers won late in the fourth, when Art Schmeal ran four yards for the tying score. Lambeau kicked the extra point for the win.
* GENE RONZANI (September 17, 1950)  - Detroit 45, Green Bay 7 (City Stadium) - Bo McMillan's "new" Detroit Lions, sparked by Bobby Layne's passing, romped over the Packers. The former Texas whiz completed eight of 12 passes for 171 yards and one touchdown all in the first half.
* LIZ BLACKBOURN (September 26, 1954) - Pittsburgh 21, Green Bay 20 (City Stadium) - It was a 37-yard pass from Jim Finks to Ray Matthews in the last five minutes of play that pulled the Steelers into a tie. Ed Kissell, who kicked Pittsburgh's first two extra points, aggravated a back injury and Paul Held came in to kick the game-winning point, just clearing the crossbar.
* SCOOTER MCLEAN (September 28, 1958) - Chicago Bears 34, Green Bay 20 (City Stadium) - Willie Galimore scored three touchdowns on rushes of one and eight yards and a 79-yard pass for the Bears. On the bright side, rookie LB Ray Nitschke forced a fumble, blocked a field goal attempt, and pressured Chicago QB Ed Brown into an interception.
* VINCE LOMBARDI (September 27, 1959) - Green Bay 9, Chicago Bears 6 (City Stadium) - The last time Green Bay held the "Monsters of the Midway" without a touchdown was in 1938 when the Bears won, 2-0. Jim Ringo pounced on a fumble on the Bears' 26 to set up the victory. Paul Hornung and Jim Taylor, took turns rushing, until Taylor swung around end from the five for the score.
* PHIL BENGSTON (September 15, 1968) - Green Bay 30, Philadelphia 13 (Lambeau Field) - The Packers were 17-point favorites. Bart Starr hit on 14 of 18 passes for 230 yards and two first half touchdowns. And a 50-yard kickoff return by Herb Adderley, Bob Jeter's interception and rookie Francis Winkler's recovery of an Eagle onside kick kept the Packers rolling.
* DAN DEVINE (September 19, 1971) - NY Giants 42, Green Bay 40 (Lambeau Field) - A pair of second-quarter TDs on fumble recoveries just six seconds apart by LB Ralph Heck and S Joe Green on the ensuing kickoff, along with three TD receptions by WR Rich Houston, led the Giants. Green Bay's Ken Ellis tied an NFL record by returning a missed FG 100 yards for a touchdown. Devine broke his leg in a pileup following a 4th quarter interception by Doug Hart.
* BART STARR (September 21, 1975) - Detroit 30, Green Bay 16 (County Stadium) - The Lions convered three Steve Broussard blocked punts, two by Levi Johnson and one by Ben Davis into three touchdowns. 
* FORREST GREGG (September 2, 1984) - Green Bay 24, St. Louis 23 (Lambeau Field) - Neil O'Donoghue missed a game- winning 45-yard field goal with 2:10 left in the game, as the Packers won their fifth straight opener.
* LINDY INFANTE (September 4, 1988) - Los Angeles 34, Green Bay 7 (Lambeau Field) - Green Bay lost 4 fumbles in the game, including 3 in the first quarter, and was intercepted 3 times, as the Rams ran out to a 21-0 halftime lead
* MIKE HOLMGREN (September 6, 1992) - Minnesota 23, Green Bay 20 (OT)  - Terry Allen's 45-yard run to the Packer 11 set up Fuad Reveiz's 25-yard FG, giving Dennis Green the win in his first game as Vikings coach.
* RAY RHODES (September 12, 1999) - Green Bay 28, Oakland 24 - Brett Favre led the Packers on an 11-play, 82-yard TD drive in the final 1:51
* MIKE SHERMAN (September 3, 2000) - NY Jets 20, Green Bay 16 - Jets safety Victor Green intercepted a  Favre pass deep in Jets' territory to dash Green Bay's hopes of a fourth-quarter comeback.

The late Reggie White was pictured in the Packers’ 29th appearance on the cover of Sports Illustrated, which was the “Pro Football Hall of Fame Commemorative Issue,” in July of 2006. The cover states, “Reggie White: A Salute to an NFL Legend.” The other members of the Hall of Fame class of 2006 were Troy Aikman, Harry Carson, John Madden, Warren Moon, and Rayfield Wright. Each player is featured in a special section, along with many photos and career statistics. At the beginning of White’s feature, SI states: “It takes a giant of a man with a huge heart and a powerful will to build a church and then rebuild it from the ashes while also galvanizing a young team and ultimately leading it to the Super Bowl. The Minister of Defense was one of a kind.” Actually, the article presented in this “Special Issue” is a reprint from a Sports Illustrated issue in September of 1996 — before the Packers won Super Bowl XXXI. A good portion of the article focuses on the then-recent burning of White’s church in Knoxville, TN — and his ministries in general. White retired from the Green Bay Packers in 1998, and later came back to play one season for the Carolina Panthers in 2000. He retired for good from football after that season as the NFL’s all-time sack leader with 198. Bruce Smith would later surpass White’s mark by two in 2003. White died unexpectedly the day after Christmas in 2004 at the age of 43 from a respiratory ailment. The Packers and the NFL will probably never see a player of his caliber again for a long, long time.

William Henderson was drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 1995 and played every season in his career with the Packers. Henderson was durable and effective for the Packers, solidifying the team at fullback after moving into the starting role in 1996. Nine times in his first 11 seasons he played in all 16 games. In 1997, he helped the Packers win their third Super Bowl in franchise history and a year later helped the Packers appear in their fourth Super Bowl. He blocked for 1,000-yard rushers Edgar Bennett, Dorsey Levens and Ahman Green.
