Nothing much was made of it then, but this game marked the debut of the 'Lambeau Leap' when LeRoy Butler jumped into the end zone seats after a touchdown


Confidence is contagious. So is lack of confidence.

Great way to pass the time, or you can watch games on video. tape them during the season. just the best ones though.

Or you can spend time with your kids, call your mom or even play with your dog.

Yes Phil, thats another good idea for a Bears fan. Maybe even mow your lawn or wash your windows? I dont do windows.

Maybe even travel to see a loved one. or even go to church. Brilliant Phil.

Just did that actually...I had to work until around 5 Christmas Eve, so I set a tape for the Packers/Vikings game...classic game in my opinion, great finish, division on the line, back and forth all the way, christmas eve it had that holiday feel if you get what i'm saying.

Funny story, I was at work, my friend kept texting me..."oh no 14-0 vikings only 9 minutes in"..."down 21-3 in the 2nd", i was a little nervous, was relieved when i got home to see the actual score, javon had just scored one of his TD's, i believe the pack went up 21-17 as I got home.

I vividly remember LeRoy's Lambeau leap. It was a cold cold game and the Packers d- not only had an interception for a TD (followed by the first leap by LeRoy) . Someone - I forget who sacked Jeff Hosteller and the ground was so hard from the cold - it knocked him out of the game.
The sack was hardly anything - but the ground was like cement when his head hit it.

All you have to do to motivate yourself for ANYTHING is hang THIS PICTURE of Lombardi on the wall, and before you know it, it will motivate you to do whatever you seek to accomplish.

The best "motivator" of our time...

Imagine what Favre would do with receivers as wide open as Hutson is in that picture. Hutson is one Packer player I never seen play because he was before my time who I wish I could have seen play. It's too bad ESPN Classic doesn't show some of his footage. He had a few seasons that had Babe Ruth like numbers that were way ahead of his time like Ruth. Ruth had more homeruns than some teams in some years, and I think the same was true of Hutson with regards to receptions.

Maybe phil, you dont have any good enough bears games to put on tape.

Actally my favorite tape is not of a playoff game or a Bears-Packers match up. It is when the Bears went down to Texas and slaughted a good Cowboys team 44-0. That was the most complete *** whipping that I have ever seen and it came against the Hated Cowboys at home.
