    that is my guess. Called off the coaches play and did his own that ended in interception and lost game and was on a bus back to Texas before the hot dog grills got cold.

    You dare to speak his name on Valentine's day???? :wink:

    The guy is resurected from the dead by Holmgren who makes him his 3rd string QB. His first snap, after first Favre, then Detmer goes down in the 4th quarter of this big game, is a turnover on a fumbled snap.

    He whose name should go unspoken, gets bailed out by the defense coming up big, giving him the ball back. With a third down and a foot from the Vikings' 38, with a minute to go and the score tied 24-24, this brainiac decides to ignore Holmgren's play call -- a quarterback sneak. Instead he calls an audible, rolls right and throws across his body into traffic a perfect strike to former Packer LB Jeff Brady. Thereby snatching defeat from victory and extending Holmgren's horrific record inside his personal Dome of Doom in Minneapolis.

    Good eye digs!

    Rumor has it that Mike Sherman called that audible.

    Sorry - those of us with old-timers, had to go back and look.....

    I actually think I missed that one - back in them days, I was workin' tons of overtime for child support.... My favorite memory is from 1989, with Majik Man and that famous Win over Chicago. Sure, it wasn't the SuperBowl - but it was da Bears... and man how they 'did' whine.... on all Channels (in Chicago)... I was livin' in Racine County at the time.... WOW!

    That's because it was a bulls**t call. By the way, it is the Packer fans that keep bringing that game up like it was something more than a regular season game that meant absolutely nothing. Just like right now. You are the same guys who are complaining about the officiating in the Super Bowl yet forget about all of the ridiculous calls that went the Packers way in that game. Get over it already!

    Just as soon as you guys quit bringing up 1985......
    To be clear - he never stepped over the line, saying his hand was over the line was the bull***t reasoning in that conversation.....

    Rumor has it that there is an asterisk next to that game in the Bear's press book. True or Urban Legend? Last thing I want to do is perpetuate a ficticious rumor.

    The Bear orgnization was furious about that Instant replay call in the Packer-Bear game in 1989. It meant much more to the Bears losing that Instant replay game to the Packers than just a regular season game that didn't mean anything. Phil, Sounds like your memory is playing tricks on you. Sound like 1989 history revision by you.

    The Bears after that game held a grudge against Instant replay for years and voted against it, every time it was up for a vote by the NFL teams. . Then a bunch of calls went against Bears and there was no instant replay to review the calls. Then the Bear organization reverse themselves and decided to vote for Instant replay next time it came up again.

    Truer words were NEVER spoken.....

    The part I'm researching, since I have old-timers n all.... is the part about how soon it was that IR got terminated by dem whiner Bears...... Heck, it was only about 2 years, or so, later, right? I remember it seemed instantaneous... 'course, I was going thru some rough times, and not payin' strict attention, either... All I know is the Bears kept running it the wrong way down the pipe, and then it just got worse for the whole NFL - all because ONE football team was havin' a pissin' match....

    Ya LOST, PHIL .... get over it! For cry iy iy.....

    Are you comparing that game to winning the Super Bowl? Hahahahahaa... sad.
    You are clinging to that game as if it were more than it really was. How many piss poor calls in the 4th quarter did it take for the Packers to be given that game? Who's memory is fading here?

    Let's be fair here. Philtration did not bring up the game. It was a regular season game and Ditka even had the Bears media guides put an astrick by the score. It was a close call though I believe the ball was released before he went over the line.

    Funny how after this much time the game is remembered. That is the value of having a rivalry.

    Both games this year were above average for the Packers. The INT just before halftime of the first game changed the whole complexion of the game.

    I would rather have the Bears winning the division than the Vikings or Lions.
