World Champion Green Bay Packers! I can’t stop saying it. Finally the bad taste in my mouth from Super Bowl 32 is gone. The Packers won the Super Bowl in thrilling fashion and have now become one of the NFL’s elite teams and will probably be there’d for some time.
With Charles Woodson and Donald Driver watching from the sidelines quarterback Aaron Rodgers carved up the Steelers’ defense to the tune of 304 yards and 3 TDs. With the exception of several drops by the receivers the Packers played a near flawless game. Nothing came easy for the Steelers all day and their three turnovers were the difference in the game.
The Packers won the Super Bowl with 16 players on injured reserve, and had many more lost games to players like Cullen Jenkins, Aaron Rodgers and Clay Matthews. Next year the Packers will get back their starting running back in Ryan Grant and starting tight end in Jermichael Finley. The pieces are place for a long run.
For now though, all we to worry about is what street to name after head coach Mike McCarthy and who will be the Packers opponent on the opening Thursday of the 2011 season. Looks like it will the Bears if you look at our home opponents next year. The only other possible opponent would be New Orleans, which would pit the last two Super Bowl winners against each other.
I’m going to enjoy this one for awhile, though. World Champion Green Bay Packers!
