1989 IN REVIEW
For one glorious season, the Green Bay Packers became the "Cardiac Pack" by setting an NFL record with four wins by a single point. The team won seven games
by five or fewer points. Green Bay spent most of the season rallying from seemingly-impossible deficits. They came back to beat New Orleans in Week 2 after being
down 17 at the half. In Week 4, they came back from 15 down in the final quarter to beat Atlanta. They nearly defeated the Rams after being down by 31. Don
Majkowski set franchise records for attempts (599) and completions (353). WR Sterling Sharpe led the NFL with 90 receptions. In the end, the Packers fell one game
short of the playoffs, when Minnesota beat Cincinnati on Christmas Day. Off the field, Green Bay welcomed a new team president in June, when Bob Harlan replaced
Robert Parins. The team signed a league-high 20 players under the new Plan B free agency plan. Four of those players appeared in all 16 games.
THE INSTANT REPLAY GAME
SOURCE: www.majiknetwork.com
Don Majkowski will forever be remembered for throwing a last-second touchdown to beat the Chicago Bears 14-13 at Lambeau Field in 1989 in the famous “Instant
Replay” game. It was one of the most exciting games in Packer history and is still a game that Bears’ fans love to complain about.  With fourth down and the ball
resting on the Bears’ 14 yard line, Majkowski rolled out to his right towards the sideline looking for an open receiver. Just before going out of bounds – and with his
foot planted on the 15-yard line – Majkowski fired a perfect pass to Sterling Sharpe for the winning score. Shortly afterwards, a referee ruled that Majik had stepped
over the line of scrimmage which would have nullified the play. However, after an Instant Replay review, the call was overturned and the touchdown counted. The
game would be the highlight of the Majkowski era, which was short but exciting. In his six seasons with the Packers, Majkowski played in 68 games, completed 889
passes for 10,870 yards and 56 touchdowns. He started five games in 1987, becoming the first rookie in Packer history to throw for 300-plus yards in one game. The
following season, Majkowski led the Packers to three of their four victories in a dismal 4-12 campaign. It all came together in 1989 for the Majik Man, as he led the NFL in passing yards, attempts and completions. He threw 27 touchdown passes and was named to the Pro Bowl. The wheels started to come off in 1990, when Majkowski held out for 45 days trying to re-negotiate his contract. He would go on to throw for 1,925 yards and 10 touchdowns in eight games before suffering serious shoulder injury at Phoenix in mid-November. Majkowski only played in nine games in an injury-plagued 1991 season. On September 20, 1992, he suffered a serious ankle injury against Cincinnati, and Brett Favre took over the reins.

Nov. 6, 1989 – A day after Green Bay defeats Chicago for the first time in five years, an ebullient Lindy Infante, head coach of the Packers, meets with the media. The Green and Gold win 14-13 on a Don Majkowski to Sterling Sharpe TD pass with 32 seconds left, a score that is allowed only after replay official Bill Parkinson overturns the call on the field by ruling Majkowski had not crossed the line of scrimmage before releasing the ball. Asked about that throw, Infante quips: “He (Majkowski) was behind the line of scrimmage by at least 14 or 15 yards.” Clearly elated, Infante adds: “I didn’t even know until yesterday you couldn’t be across the line of scrimmage to throw the ball. We do a lot of on-the-job training in this business.” (SOURCE: Packer Hall of Fame)
Oct. 11, 1989 – Coach Lindy Infante has his Green Bay Packers winning in his second season at the helm (3-2), and just like that he’s rumored to be a candidate for the head coaching position at the University of Florida. “I’ve got too many things on my mind up here to worry about without worrying about the Gainesville situation,” Infante says. “Like I said, I’d be shocked (if his name had come up). Infante was a second-team All-Southeastern Conference selection as a running back/defensive back for the Gators in the early 1960s. “I did hear that Ray Nitschke was down there speaking this week. Maybe he mentioned my name or something,” Infante adds.
Nov. 15, 1989 – In preparing his team to face the defending world champion 49ers, Lindy Infante announces he is closing practice to the media for the remainder of the week. It is a first for the Packers coach in his second year leading the team. “It’s really quite simple,” Infante explains. “We’ve got some things that we’re doing that I don’t want to be made public. Very honestly, I had one member of the media tell me, point blank, that he was going to write anything he saw on the field. He said he had an obligation to do so.” Infante’s decision doesn’t hurt the team as it goes on to stun San Francisco 21-17 while winning five of its last six games to finish 10-6. (SOURCE: Packer Hall of Fame)
