Between 1967 and 1992, the Green Bay Packers has just 5 winning seasons, earning a postseason birth in just 2 of them. The Packers would not suffer another losing season until 2005, starting with this year.
There’s so much to say about 1992 that is often overlooked. This is where it all started, obviously, but there’s more to it than that. Sterling Sharpe became arguably the best receiver in the league. The Packers found their quarterback of the present and future. The team put together a winning streak not seen since the Lombardi glory years. There was excitement in Green Bay in a way that was different from 1989, when the Packers came out of nowhere and posted a 10-6 record. This was the foundation that caused Reggie White to take notice and decide to sign with Green Bay in the off-season.
Even though the Packers didn’t qualify for the playoffs, as a fan I remember thinking they had turned a corner. They had played meaningful December football. It obviously didn’t end the way they had planned, but it was apparent that the team was headed in the right direction. Thank you for reading the 1992 Pack Recap, and we will begin 1993 next week. Until then.
