George Seifert, 1989 Pro Set (Football Friday No. 45)

Name: George Seifert
Team: San Francisco 49ers
Position: Coach
Value of card: Half a Geritol capsule
Key 1989 stat: One full-body cast
Bad, bad decisions: Fed up after star quarterback Joe Montana threw his eighth interception of the 1989 season, head coach George Seifert knew he could turn to only one man. No, not future hall-of-famer Steve Young. The only man George Seifert could trust was George Seifert. On the team's next possession, the coach told both of his QBs to ride the pine and strutted out onto the field in his windbreaker to lead the offense. A calm, confident Seifert called a play for his bewildered offense, took the snap from center, dropped back, and was promptly crushed by three Atlanta defenders. Seifert watched the rest of the season from the sideline, where he made Young use a wire to scratch under his full-body cast.
