My Top Five Green Bay Packers Moments of 2014

Lacy versus AustinI am so excited for Sunday’s playoff match-up between the Packers and Cowboys! My coworker and I got into a little battle this morning about who is going to win (picture edited to remove my company logo). Obviously I remain in full support of my beloved Packers. N is representing Miles Austin and I am representing Eddie Lacy. I have cheese on my head, so (clearly) I win.

I thought it would be fun to post about my top five favorite Packers moments this year. Here goes…

  1. Aaron Rodgers comes back into the game in week 17 versus the Lions. This was my favorite game of the season. With the division riding on the game and the Packers ahead 14-0, Rodgers went down and was brought into the locker room. Their lead quickly disappeared and the game was tied up. I wasn’t even watching the game live, but was getting text messages from a friend across the country that had the broadcast. When she told me Rodgers was putting his helmet back on, I just couldn’t believe it. Watching it after the fact- I was just so proud of his grit. That’s why we Packers fans love him!
  2. The Packers’ big win over the Patriots in week 13. I don’t say big because it was a blowout, because it was close. I say it because this game meant so much to our Packers pride and had so much build up. The fourth quarter sack, Lacy’s incredible running game, Nelson’s 45 yard touchdown catch; I was on the edge of my couch cushion šŸ™‚
  3. Domination of the Bears (week 4 and week 10). These games were blowouts, which isn’t as fun to watch. However, I am still holding a serious grudge against the Bears over last year’s collarbone incident. It made me extremely happy to see them fall to the Packers, unsportsmanlike of me that may be. Note- I also wasn’t sure how I would feel about Peppers becoming a Packer, but seeing him play for Green Bay has actually been fantastic!
  4. Nelson, Cobb, Lacy, Matthews- they are all so fun to watch in every single game. Are they on fire or what?! The new rookies are all incredible. The team this year is my favorite in the last several years.
  5. Their comeback after getting off to a rough start at the beginning of the season. Rodgers rallied everyone and pulled off four great games after two hard losses to the Seahawks and the Eagles.

I am very excited for tomorrow’s game, and hoping that we will be moving on to the next round! This has been a fantastic year for the Packers and I don’t want to see it end. Anyone else out there follow football? I like my girly make-up and handbags, but I love football just as much.

    • Rough game indeed… even as a Pack fan, I’m still not sure about that call.

      • Yeah, I was pretty sure he was down long before that ball came out. But like coach said… Dallas had 60 minutes to prove they were the best and they fell short that time. That call may have well made it possible for them to win, but they should’ve never gotten down to begin with. I’m proud of them either way, they accomplished a lot this season. Next year will be even better šŸ™‚
