Packers Quarterback McHan Leads Off for Last Time
Oct. 30, 1960 – Lamar McHan starts his last game for the Packers, but it’s Bart Starr who directs the game-winning drive in Green Bay’s 19-13 victory over the Steelers at Forbes Field. The game is the 17th for Vince Lombardi as head coach of the Packers, and it marks the 11th and final time the headmaster selects McHan over Starr to start at QB. “You can’t fault McHan,” Lombardi says. “After all, he’s won three games for us. He just wasn’t sharp in his passing. Sometimes he overthrew, but at times some tosses were dropped, too.” McHan completes just four of 16 throws for 51 yards. Starr connects 11 times in 18 tries for 150 yards. Starr pilots an 11-play, 66-yard drive to set up Jim Taylor’s 1-yard plunge with one minute, three seconds to play.
