Thank You Green Bay…From The 12th Man


Thank you Green Bay for assuming you won the game.
Thank you for turning off the intensity and going into relax mode.

Thank you Mr. Burnett for sliding down after your 4th quarter imaginary “game winning” interception.
Thank you Julius Peppers for telling Burnett to “get down”.
Thank you Aaron Rogers for handing off the ball three consecutive times, causing a three and out.
Thank you for doing all that knowing we had three time outs, with PLENTY of time on the clock.

Thank you for failing to realize that we were so desperate, that we were willing to fight with every ounce of our strength.

Thank you for not matching our intensity and giving up early.

We realize we wouldn’t have stood a chance if Mr. Burnett would’ve ran back that late interception with all his strength and ability. Because then maybe Aaron Rogers would’ve kept playing too. I mean after all, you guys do have Mason Crosby. And a field goal at that point would’ve ensured a victory. A Super Bowl appearance.

Perhaps your coaches, staff, and players gave up early because they know we will give NEW ENGLAND a better run. Ya see, New England doesn’t give up either. Did you see Tom Brady take a shot at LaFell, in the end zone, late in the 4th quarter, up 45 to 7?

THAT’S how you finish a game!
THAT’S how you win championships!
THAT’S why New England will play Seattle in the Super Bowl.

Thank you Green Bay.
Better luck next year.
