1986 IN REVIEW
Forrest Gregg cleaned house after the Packers had gone 24-24 the past three seasons. DE Mike Butler, TE Paul Coffman, LB Mike Douglass, LB George Cumby and OT
Greg Koch were let go, making way for less exerienced players like Alphonso Carreker, Brian Noble, Burnell Dent and Alan Veingrad. The changes, along with a slew of
injuries, led to a record six straight losses to start the season, and the third worst record in the NFL (4-12). It was the first time the Packers had ever lost twelve games in a
season. Off the field, DE Charles Martin was suspended for two games for body slamming Jim McMahon and WR James Lofton was charged with 2nd-degree sexual
 assault, leading to the end of his playing days in Green Bay. At QB, Randy Wright took over for Lynn Dickey and became the second passer in Green Bay history to throw
for 3,000 yards. Green Bay, though, was in trade talks off-and-on to acquire Jim Everett or Doug Flutie,
though nothing ever came to pass.
THE CASE OF MOSSY CADE
Tomorries "Mossy" Cade came out of college after a stellar career with the Texas Longhorns. In his senior year, he had 54 solo tackles and eight assists, plus six
interceptions, 21 broken-up passes and a recovered fumble, leading San Diego to pick him in the first round of the 1984 draft. The Houston Gamblers of the USFL also
selected him. Negotiations with the Chargers, who were offering him a $1.6 million deal, went nowhere, and the Memphis Showboats (USFL) signed him in October 1984,
after acquiring his rights from the Gamblers. In his rookie year, Cade had four interceptions and 62 tackles. After the USFL went on hiatus after the 1985 season, Cade
continued his contract struggles with the Chargers, who decided to rid themselves of the headache. Cade rejected their last offer - four years for $1.55 million. On
September 5, they sent him to the Packers for a 1986 1st-round draft choice and a 1987 5th-rounder. Unfortunately, he reported to training camp overweight, out of shape,
slow and lacking in coverage sklls, according to team officials. The end of Cade's tenure in Green Bay came on November 14, 1986, when he was charged with second-
degree sexual assault. His alleged victim was a 42-year old woman, who later was indentified as his aunt. The crime was reported to have taken place at Cade's DePere
home twice on the morning of November 3rd, one day after the Packers lost to Pittsburgh. Police arrested Cade as he left his home to attend practice. Cade appeared in court, and was released after posting a $25,000 bond. After numerous delays and after playing the 1986 season, Cade went to trial in May 1987, on the same day teammate James Lofton went to court on a sexual assault charge, on three counts of second-degree sexual assault. The jury, on May 23, found him guilty on two of the charges, and acquitted him on the third. Lofton had been found innocent two days prior. Two months later, on July 28, he was sentenced to two years in prison and fined $15,000. Judge Richard Greenwood ordered the penalties after Cade admitted committing the crimes and said he was sorry. In December 1987, a parole bid by Cade was unanimously denied. In February 1988, Cade was charged with perjury, after it was determined he had told the court at his trial he did not assault his victim, but a court psychiatrist said Cade had admitted to him his guilt. In March 1988, Packer president Judge Robert Parins announced Cade would never play for the franchise again. It appeared that Cade might be able to resume his NFL career in the fall of 1988. The perjury charge was dropped in early October, when the judge ruled there was not enough evidence. On October 21, Cade was paroled from prison, and the Packers agreed to sit down with him and reportedly said he could play with the team in 1989. After his lawyer hinted Cade may seek legal action to play with Green Bay in 1988, the team waived him on November 5 after claiming they found no takers when they offered to trade him. Three days later, the Vikings claims Cade and put him on the reserve list, and said they would not re-instate him until 1989. Three days later, after a tremendous backlash from their fans, Minnesota released Cade. He was denied re-instatement to the NFL in September 1989 and August 1990, and his pro career came to an end.

On the cover of the 1986 Yearbook is linebacker Randy Scott, shown during a game with the Miami Dolphins on December 8, 1985. The Packers lost that game 34-24. Scott played for the team from 1981-1986, making this the second year in a row that the player on the Yearbook cover was playing his last with the team. In 1986, the Packers went from a .500 team to a 4-12 last-place-in-the-NFC-Central-Division team. The Gregg era was not working out like anyone had anticipated. After an 0-6 start, the Packers ended up beating only Cleveland, Tampa Bay (twice), and Detroit. Finishing out the year in grand style, they lost to the New York Giants 55-24 four days before Christmas. Happy Holidays, Packer fans! Lynn Dickey was now gone, so Randy Wright was “leading” the team — passing for 3,247 yards, 17 TD’s, and 23 INT’s. The other quarterbacks this year were Vince Ferragamo and Chuck Fusina. Leading the rushing department was rookie Kenneth Davis with 519 yards on 114 carries — and 0 TD’s. Veteran James Lofton, also in his last year with the Packers, led the receiving corps with 840 yards on 64 receptions, with 4 TD’s. These were obviously not great years for the Green Bay Packers organization. In his recent book “Green and Golden Moments,” Packers’ president Bob Harlan wrote, “There weren’t a lot of times when Forrest was really happy, to be quite honest about it. A couple of years after his regime was over, I asked a player what it was like. He said Forrest was stern, vocal, and at times intimidating. He told me it was negative motivation, and it was a negative time in Packerland. I think that described it very well.” After a 1985 Monday night game with the eventual Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears in which William “The Refrigerator” Perry scored a touchdown, Harlan said, “I saw Forrest in the locker room... and he was livid. And that wasn’t just in the locker room. He let everyone in the (Packers’ headquarters) building know how upset he was for the next couple of weeks.” There also was an incident after a loss at the Indianapolis Colts that season where it was close to “total chaos” in the locker room, and strength coach Virgil Knight hurled a full can of soda at linebacker Mike Douglass. Ah, those were the good old days.
