The 1949 Green Bay Packers season was their 29th season in the National Football League. The club posted a 2–10 record under coach Curly Lambeau for a fifth place finish in the Western Conference. This was the 31st and final season the Packers played under legendary coach Lambeau, who resigned and then coached the Chicago Cardinals in 1950 and 1951 and the Washington Redskins in 1952 and 1953.

The 1949 season was also the final year for blue and gold jerseys, as the Packers switched to kelly green and yellow in 1950 under new coach Gene Ronzani, a graduate of Marquette University.
