Thursday Cheese Curds: Charles Woodson, Al Harris to enter Packers Hall of Fame

The Green Bay Packers have two new members of their hall of fame and it’s fitting that both men go in together.

Charles Woodson and Al Harris will be inducted into the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on April 18 and it’s an appropriate ending for the dynamic duo that led the Green Bay secondary from 2006-2009.

Woodson of course was the heart and soul of the defense from 2009-2012. After a rocky start to his time in Green Bay, Woodson settled in and had a career year in 2009 when he was named Defensive Player of the Year. The following season he further endeared himself to fans by being the vocal locker room leader during the team’s run to Super Bowl XLV. His “White House on 3” speech after winning the NFC Championship will forever be repeated by Packers fans.

Before Woodson however, there was Harris. Harris played in Green Bay from 2003-2009 and made fourteen interceptions during those seasons, the most memorable was a walk-off pick six in the NFC wild card game against the Seattle Seahawks in January 2004. Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck was caught on a hot mic at the overtime coin toss saying “we want the ball and we’re gonna score!” They did score but thanks to Harris, it was the game winner for the Packers.

Now both will be immortalized in Lambeau Field and it will be almost certainly be the first of two ceremonies for Woodson with his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame basically a certainty.

Now onto today’s curds.

Happy Halloween, Packer Nation. As a fan of candy corn, I think sixth overall is a reach. My number one overall? Have to go with peanut butter cup. 3 Musketeers at number two.
