    Walter Payton runs the Wildcat in 1984

    [video type=youtube]eSdMqnmj5T8[/video]

    Bears ended up losing this game 20-14. Jim McMahon must have been hurt, because they used something called "Rusty Lisch" as QB that day.

    I saw that a few days ago. Pretty cool, it wasn't so much the wildcat that we are familiar, as just payton running QB draws, but still neat.

    There were some sweeps and a couple passes in there, too.

    yeah, I'm curious though, why were the defenses still playing the pass like they were? Only rushing 4-5, dropping LB's back leaving big holes for Payton to run. Unless he's done that alot before, and had a respectable arm, you would think he would be the main focus there.

    Probably just the Packers' base defense for the last minute of the half, I'm guessing.
