During Super Bowl weekend, the Green Bay Packers were bestowed a handful of honors. First, former GM Ron Wolf was elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, and then quarterback Aaron Rodgers won his second league MVP award.

However, it's possible that the most cathartic moment for the Packers' faithful came at the very end of the Super Bowl itself, when the Seattle Seahawks gave up a10-point lead in the fourth quarter and then proceeded to throw an interception from the one-yard line instead of running the ball with Marshawn Lynch.
