Quick Slant: December 3, 2013 – Packer Pride

During last week’s press conference, Mike McCarthy aptly summed up his Green Bay Packer team as a

Mike McCarthy Loses Aaron Rodgers

Mike McCarthy and Co. can sort out who stays and who goes AFTER we see who really has Packer Pride.

“wounded team that got drilled today.” Well, with a little extra rest this week, we’ll see what kind of Packer Pride this team has got and who really “gets” what the Packers organization is really about.

Let me explain what I do NOT mean by that…

1. I do NOT mean let’s see who plays their hearts out because the Pack still has a chance to go to the playoffs and make good things happen (though I’d love to see it and it is still possible).

2. I do NOT mean let’s see who plays poorly as we lose out and hold Aaron Rodgers out for the season (because it’s over anyway) and then retool the defense, fire coaches and/or coordinators, and be better NEXT year.

Here’s what I want to find out. Who out there is gonna take getting “drilled” by the Detroit Lions, the most irrelevant franchise in the league, personally. Each player has personal pride and on top of that they play for the friggin’ Packers for cryin’ out loud. It’s all about winning whether the winning is for a playoff spot or not. We win for personal pride and for the greater good of this greatest sports organization on the planet. We win because it’s the “only thing.” I want to see who coordinates and coaches and goes out to make the plays that win games for Packer Pride. The playoff picture and any personnel moves will take care of themselves AFTER that.

  1. Mr Mc Carthy I want to tellyou what the packers mean to me. Not everyone can afford to see your games it takes me a long time to be able to save to be able to see one. You talk about pride thats not why I like the PACKERS I absolutely love the PACKERS because of the integrity and honor of the team it brings hope to people like me because some of us dont have much to look forward to and you and your team does that for me.now I know Id never be able to have the money to ever meet you all but I am grateful . grateful for the fact That as a team I know that your heart and souls are no doubt honorable. Now everyone at some point messes up but the integrity and HEART I see in your team makes me a proud proud packers fan. We have the best team their ever was not because of your teams skills but the way they carry themselves. They bring hope to people that other wise wouldnt have any I. Your team deserves to hear from some of us. Im not about drooling all over your players but Ill always show my love for the PACKERS.The only thing I wanted was to have clay sign my jersey and when he looked straight at me and walked away in St louis it was a disappointment that upset me because I was finally going to get to meet someone that means a lot to me as a human being with integrity. I was so disappointed that I gave the Jersey to one of his team mates and asked him if he would sign it and just give it to someone at a charity. It hurt a bit but you know he is human too. I just think some of your team needs to get down at my level and learn the meaning of hope .I think they lose it sometimes. Maybe they dont understand sometime they need to get to know the soul of a PERSON I guarantee their will be winners every time.and to me for my heart THE PACKERS ARE my soul and I want to say thank you for bringing a little peace to my life and one day maybe I can meet the whole team. Maybe you should have a time were some fans can write to them and encourage them after all they deserve it .I beleive in you and the PACKERS take care and GOD BLESS !!!!

    • Right on Coby! The Packers are the best there is! Sorry to hear about the Clay Matthews incident. I think you are right though that he is human too. Love the idea about meeting the whole team…dream come true! Hang in there and keep hoping. Glad to see you get that win or lose the Packers are the BEST! Go Pack!
