1985 IN REVIEW

Green Bay finished at .500 for the third consecutive season, despite a passing game (197.7 net yards per game, the worst since 1979) which was hurt by the trade of John Jefferson to Cleveland and an injury-riddled season for Lynn Dickey. The 36-year old was demoted to second string for a time early in the season and went out with an injury in Week 14. Jim Zorn and Randy Wright were mostly inefficient in moving the team. Dickey would leave after the 1985 campaign, when he could not agree on a new contract. Eddie Lee Ivery, Gerry Ellis and Jessie Clark led a running game which averaged 138 yards per contest, the best since 1973. Ellis would end the season with a 5.49 yard per carry average, the best in team history. Lambeau Field also had a new look, with 72 luxury boxes being added, increasing the capacity from 56,263 to 56,926.

THE BLIZZARD OF 1985

(SOURCE: BucPower.com) Week 13 was a trip to Lambeau Field to play the Packers, not exactly world-beaters at the time themselves. And it was snowing in Green Bay. Hard. And getting worse. Six inches of snow fell the day before the game, six inches fell during the game and another foot and a half the following day. It was the worst weather Lambeau Field had seen on a game day in 30 years. Total white-out conditions at times, grounds crew trying to sweep the lines between plays and coaches and commentators alike having difficulty in seeing on to the field. And the Bucs were in white. The Bucs were outgained by the incredible margin of 512 yards to 61 and it was only two short missed field goals by Al Del Greco of the Packers (basically because he couldn't stand up straight to kick them) and a pair of fumbles that stopped the game being a total annihilation on the scoreboard. A shade under 20,000 were in the stands to see the game although probably many more were unable to travel across snowbound Wisconsin to get to Lambeau Field that afternoon. It was 30 first downs to five for the Pack and Lynn Dickey's passing performance was nothing short of unreal in the conditions. James Lofton had over 100 yards by half-time and Dickey's arm was every bit as good as Brett Favre who would follow him a decade later. Steve Young threw one out pass that sailed on the wind and flew over the receiver's head. He tried again on the next play and the wind knocked it down to fall incomplete five yards from Kevin House's feet. Backs and linemen were slipping all over the place unless they had a Packer helmet on, in which case they seemed to be playing on perfect grass. The 1985 Bucs were not

a great team and they quickly realised that as soon as the Packers scored, any hope of success was beyond them. Thanks to a fumble recovery, they did get inside the Green Bay 20-yard line at the end of the third quarter but the incompetent Leeman Bennett didn't call a time out and hence had to attempt the kick at the other end of the field at the start of the fourth quarter when the teams changed ends. I don't know if Igwebuike missed left, right or short - you simply couldn't see the ball flying off his foot.  The Bucs did get out of Wisconsin on a flight that evening but several of the players had staged a protest convinced it was not safe to fly. Eventually the pilot had to come out of the cockpit to convince them that he had a wife and family and wouldn't put them at risk by taking off in dangerous conditions. "Show us the pictures" LB and current Buc radio show host Scot Brantley remembers calling out. "You could hear a pin drop when we rolled down the runway" he added.

SUPER BOWL 20 (January 26, 1986 at New Orleans)

CHICAGO BEARS (17-1) 46, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS (14-5) 10 - The NFC champion Chicago Bears, seeking their first NFL title since 1963, scored a Super Bowl-record 46 points in downing AFC champion New England 46-10 in Super Bowl XX. The previous record for most points in a Super Bowl was 38, shared by San Francisco in XIX and the Los Angeles Raiders in XVIII. The Bears' league-leading defense tied the Super Bowl record for sacks (7) and limited the Patriots to a record-low seven rushing yards. New England took the quickest lead in Super Bowl history when Tony Franklin kicked a 36-yard field goal with 1:19 elapsed in the first period. The score came about because of Larry McGrew's fumble recovery at the Chicago 19-yard line. However, the Bears rebounded for a 23-3 first-half lead, while building a yardage advantage of 236 total yards to New England's minus 19. Running back Matt Suhey rushed eight times for 37 yards, including an 11-yard touchdown run, and caught one pass for 24 yards in the first half. After the Patriot's first drive of the second half ended with a punt to the Bears' 4-yard line, Chicago marched 96 yards in nine plays with quarterback Jim McMahon's 1-yard scoring run capping the drive. McMahon became the first quarterback in Super Bowl history to rush for a pair of touchdowns. The Bears completed their scoring via a 28-yard interception return by reserve cornerback Reggie Phillips, a 1-yard run by defensive tackle/fullback William Perry, and a safety when defensive end Henry Waechter tackled Patriots quarterback Steve Grogan in the end zone. Bears defensive end Richard Dent became the fourth defender to be named the game's most valuable player after contributing 1½ sacks. The Bears' victory margin of 36 points was the largest in Super Bowl history, bettering the previous mark of 29 by the Los Angeles Raiders when they topped Washington 38-9 in Game XVIII. McMahon completed 12 of 20 passes for 256 yards before leaving the game in the fourth period with a wrist injury. The NFL's all-time leading rusher, Bears running back Walter Payton, carried 22 times for 61 yards. Wide receiver Willie Gault caught four passes for 129 yards, the fourth-most receiving yards in a Super Bowl. Chicago coach Mike Ditka became the second man (Tom Flores of Raiders was the other) to win a Super Bowl ring as a player and as a coach.

AMERICA'S FOOTBALL TEAMS, INC. - David Dixon, founder of the USFL, came forward with another plan, as his spring league was dying. The AFT, which he claimed would be in in existence in 1987, would play 20 games during the regular season to be followed by a best-of-three championship series. The league would consist of one corporation with 12 wholly owned subsidiaries. Television and gate receipts would provide most of the revenue. Dixon proposed paying players from gross gate receipts and having almost the same budget for each team. Clubs would be based in major markets, cities with domed stadiums and the Sun Belt. Dixon presented his plan in a speech to Harvard Business School students in May 1985. Nothing more was heard of the plan.

The USFL lost even more money in 1985, and with a dubious plan to begin a fall schedule the following year, decided not only to complete with the NFL on the field, but in the court room. The league filed an antitrust lawsuit against the established league in hopes the money would insure its survival. The USFL miraculous won shortly before the planned 1986 season, but was awarded only $3, when courts agreed that while the NFL was a monopoly, it became one through sound business practice rather than dirty tactics. TEAMS FOLDING: Chicago Blitz, Pittsburgh Maulers TEAMS MERGING: Michigan Panthers and Oakland Invaders=Oakland Invaders. Oklahoma Outlaws and Arizona Wranglers=Arizona Outlaws TEAMS MOVING: New Orleans to Portland. Washington Federals to Orlando Renegades.

THE END OF THE USFL

May 1986: Federal Judge Peter Leisure hears the USFL vs. NFL case July 25, 1986: Six-member jury begins deliberations on the case. July 29, 1986: The jury concludes that the NFL is in violation of the Sherman Anti-trust Laws by conspiring to monopolize professional football, and that they did illegally damage the USFL. The jury awarded the USFL $1 dollar in damages (trebled to $3 by law) August 1st, 1986: The USFL owners meet and vote to suspend the 1986 season. They also vote to appeal the jury's decision.
