Packers Bounce Back in Monster Game on West Coast
Dec. 10, 2006 – Green Bay downs San Francisco 30-19 at Monster Park to end a three-game skid and usher in a four-game winning streak to close out Mike McCarthy’s first season as head coach of the Packers. Donald Driver (nine catches, 160 yards), Brett Favre (293 yards passing, two touchdowns) and Dave Rayner (three field goals) aid Green Bay’s cause as the team puts consecutive losses to the Patriots, Seahawks and Jets in its rear view mirror. “Once again, I think it’s been a long month for us, the way Sundays have gone, but they prepared, they worked and they stuck together, and it speaks to the type of character we have on this football team, and I’m proud of the way they stayed the course,” McCarthy says. Wins over the Lions, Vikings and Bears follow as the team finishes 8-8.
