1984 IN REVIEW

The Packers selected another former player from the Lombardi era to try and turn the team around. Forrest Gregg has been a head coach with Cleveland (1975-77) and Cincinnati (1980-83) before coming back to Green Bay on December 26, 1983. During the course of the 1984 season, Gregg made several changes after the Packers started 1-7. After trading Jan Stenerud to the Vikings, Eddie Garcia was given the kicking job, struggled, and was replaced in the middle of the season by Al Del Greco. Eddie Lee Ivery missed the first six games of the season with a knee injury, then teamed up with Gerry Ellis, as both players passed the 500-yard mark in rushing. Randy Wright was drafted from Wisconsin and became the heir apparent to QB Lynn Dickey, after David Whitehurst was released and Rich Campbell found wanting. Hank Bullough was brought in to rebuild the defense, but left for the USFL. Dick Modzelewski took over, and the Packer defense allowed 130 less points that they did in 1983.

 

THE USFL SUPPLEMENTAL DRAFT

After seeing the United States Football League continue to raid their rosters and pluck off their draft picks, the NFL held a supplemental draft of players from the USFL and the CFL on June 5, 1984. 84 players were picked during the three-round selection meeting, 75 from the USFL, eight from the CFL and one,  Duan Hanks, who was a free agent who had last participated in the Philadelphia Stars camp before being cut. NFL clubs tabbed 20 members of the Los Angeles Express including top pick Steve Young by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Green Bay selected three players:

1st round - RB Buford Jordan - A first-round pick in the 1984 USFL draft, Jordan led the New Orleans Breakers in rushing his rookie season with 1276 yards and 8 touchdowns. The following year, after the team moved to Portland, he again led the team in rushing with 876 yards and 5 touchdowns. Joining the Packers shortly after the USFL ended their season, he was one of the final training camp cuts (September 17). He would join the Saints in 1986 and play seven years in New Orleans, but never rushed for more than 207 yards in any one season.

2nd round - DB Chuck Clanton - Clanton picked off ten passes in 1984 for the Birmingham Stallions and returned three for scores. In 1985, Clanton had an even bigger season, intercepting 16 passes and being named USFL Defensive Player of the Year. He would finish with the second most interceptions in USFL history, two behing Luther Bradley, who played an extra year. On December 3, 1985, Clanton joined the Packers and would play in three games at the end of the season. He would be released on August 19, 1986.

3rd round - DB John Sullivan - After a pedestrian career in the USFL, the former Oakland Invader sat out the 1985 NFL season, then joined the Packers in the 1986 training camp. He would play six games with Green Bay before being released on October 18. Ironically, he would be picked up on waivers by San Diego, after they released a former Packer fan favorite - Mike "Mad Dog" Douglass. He would play nine games with the Chargers, then one game the following year with the 49ers before his career came to an end. Like many of their draft operations in the 1970s and 1980s, the Packers would miss on their picks. Green Bay, in picking Jordan, passed up on several USFL players who went on to productive NFL careers - WR Ricky Sanders (483 catches 

1984PACKERS-ForrrestGregg.jpg

and 37 touchdowns), LB Vaughan Johnson (4-time Pro Bowler), DE William Fuller (4-time Pro Bowler with 100.5 career sacks) and RB Albert Bentley (2355 rushing yard and 19 touchdowns in eight NFL seasons).

SUPER BOWL 19 (January 20, 1985 at Palo Alto, CA)

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (17-1) 38, MIAMI DOLPHINS (16-2) 16 - The San Francisco 49ers captured their second Super Bowl title with a dominating offense and a defense that tamed Miami's explosive passing attack. The Dolphins held a 10-7 lead at the end of the first period, which represented the most points scored by two teams in an opening quarter of a Super Bowl. However, the 49ers used excellent field position in the second period to build a 28-16 halftime lead. Running back Roger Craig set a Super Bowl record by scoring three touchdowns on pass receptions of eight and 16 yards and a run of two yards. San Francisco's Joe Montana was voted the game's most valuable player. He joined Green Bay's Bart Starr and Pittsburgh's Terry Bradshaw as the only two-time Super Bowl most valuable players. Montana completed 24 of 35 passes for a Super Bowl-record 331 yards and three touchdowns, and rushed five times for 59 yards, including a 6-yard touchdown. Craig had 58 yards on 15 carries and caught seven passes for 77 yards. Wendell Tyler rushed 13 times for 65 yards and had four catches for 70 yards. Dwight Clark had six receptions for 77 yards, while Russ Francis had 5 for 60. San Francisco's 537 total net yards bettered the previous Super Bowl record of 429 yards by Oakland in Super Bowl XI. The 49ers also held a time of possession advantage over the Dolphins of 37:11 to 22:49.

Besana was sacked 71 times last season, which set a pro football record. A crowd of 29,176 watched the game. Eleven months ago, 45,167 turned out to see Oakland beat Arizona 24-0 here in the USFL's inaugural season.

New Orleans 13, SAN ANTONIO 10 (18233) - QB Johnnie Walton heaved a 40-yard TD pass to Frank Lockett in the fourth quarter as New Orleans downed San Antonio before 18,000 people, who turned out to see the expansion Gunslingers play the Breakers, who were based in Boston last year.

OKLAHOMA 7, Pittsburgh 3 (11638) - Stymied for three quarters by miscues and miserable weather, Oklahoma used a 12-yard pass play from Doug Williams to Derek Hughes for the win.

On the eve of its second season, the USFL is talking about further expansion and the possibility of going head-to-head with the NFL. The league, which lost $30 million last year, added six teams, and Commissioner Chet Simmons told a sports symposium that the league could expand again as early as next season. "We may lose some teams to attrition but we are studying expansion," said Simmons, listing both Indianapolis and Seattle as "early targets." Other cities being considered are New York, Dallas, Cleveland, Kansas City and Southern Florida. Simmons said the league also is studying the feasibility of switching its schedule from spring to fall, a move that would place it on a collision course with the established NFL. Indianapolis, which is courting the NFL for a team, recently completed an $80-rnillion, 63,000-seat domed stadium. The USFL has talked to Seattle officials concerning the availability of the Kingdome, the domed, 65,000-seat home of the NFL's Seattle Seahawks.

FRIDAY MARCH 2

Tampa Bay 20, ARIZONA 17 (31264) - Gary Anderson scored two TDs and Zenon Andrusyshyn kicked a pair of FGs as the Bandits used a 17-point second quarter to beat Arizona.

Houston 35, SAN ANTONIO 7 (10023) - QB Jim Kelly scrambled for two TDs and passed for another as the Gamblers won in a contest delayed 47 minutes late in the third by a stadium power failure. Houston coach Jack Pardee got a little worried. He was even more distracted when his players went to their locker room to wait out the power failure and found the door padlocked shut. They broke in. By that time, most of the 10,023 fans had left.

Commissioner Chet Simmons announced that the league's next stage of expansion will bring a second professional football team to Miami as early as 1985. Simmons joined a handful of league and city officials in a press conference at the Orange Bowl to announce the plans for the new team. But very few details were made public because the application must be approved by the City Commission. The announcement came on the heels of another that the Miami Dolphins plan to move from the Orange Bowl to a proposed new stadium in northern Dade County.
