I have a couple of things I want to say to all of you.
First kudos to a great season performance by the GB Packers- they came back and dominated after winning a Super Bowl. Usually teams comes back with the "super Bowl Hangover" but GB they never lost a step. They just came back and swallowed the entire NFL up - those guys scared the hell out of me this year from the day they won 5 games in a row!
As for all you fans - man I heard you guys were as passionate and loyal as they come, but I have to hand it to you all, you must also have a tough stomach - to come back on the blog site and talk about the aftermath not even a full 24 hr removed is pretty badass. To be honest, sometimes depending on the circumstance it takes me a week to get back on line after a Giant’s lost. The little bit I've interacted with Packer fans I have always encountered a classy, proud bunch. It’s not by chance the image of Cheeseheads is Iconic -you guys are the epitome of sports fandom at its best.
The other thing I wanted to comment on is about the Packers run last year. To me it reminded me of the Giants run a couple years earlier. No one picked them to make the playoffs, GB battled through adversity and like us, a wild card team went all the way and won the big Game! But that’s not the comparison I'm really getting to, what I really wanted to share was that from day 1 of preseason 2011, the Giants started to accumulate so many injuries. Once the season started we thought maybe we could move on and work with what we had, until the unthinkable, we lost more and more players. It was so bad, so many on BBV panicked, and cried to the Football Gods, why, why can't we catch a break? - But there were some of us who had hope, players and fans alike, who saw the light at the end of the tunnel, there was a blueprint, an already written story from beginning to the end that we could relate to, the perfect example laid out in place for us all, ...what was it you ask?
If the Green Bay Packers could overcome all those injuries, continue to play hard through such a depleted bench , and win the Super Bowl! - then maybe we too, still have a chance!
In final I respect who the Packers are, and because of their accomplishments, thank them for inspiring at best -the ny Giants at worst - their fans!!
