Packers to unveil 2005 highlight film

There weren't many highlights during last season's 4-12 campaign, but Packers fans can relive them all when the team unveils "The Next Generation: The Story of the 2005 Green Bay Packers," on Monday night in the Legends Club of the Lambeau Field Atrium.

"The Next Generation" features the hallmark cinematography of NFL Films. The film highlights the team's impressive performances from last season, and focuses on key veteran players — including a Brett Favre segment — and younger reserves who gained experience when pressed into action.

Not wanting to dwell on a bad season, "The Next Generation" looks ahead to the upcoming season by interviewing Packers general manager Ted Thompson and new coach Mike McCarthy. Fans can get a feel of McCarthy's coaching style, as NFL Films attached a microphone to the coach for a minicamp practice.

Packers long snapper Rob Davis, who is entering his 10th season with the team, will answer questions from fans and sign autographs.

Admission is free, and the event starts at 7 p.m. Atrium access will be through the Miller Brewing Co. gate.

—  "The Next Generation" will be available for non-commercial group showings (church, fraternal and civic groups, etc.), in DVD format, through the Packers beginning July 24. Interested groups should inquire by writing to Packers Highlight Film, P.O. Box 10628, Green Bay, WI 54307-0628.

— The film will be available for purchase through the Packers Pro Shop, located in the Lambeau Field Atrium, starting in late July.
