Green Bay Packers – Media Day Memories

REGGIE WHITE

A highlight of every Super Bowl week is Media Day – the day that reporters get to bombard the players with questions about the season, the upcoming game, and just about anything else they can think of. Even though the Packers aren’t participating in today’s Media Day in Arizona, let’s take a look back at a few memories from Packer Super Bowl Media Days past.

Super Bowl XLV was the last time the Packers were subject to Media Day. Check out interviews with Aaron Rodgers, Clay Matthews, B.J. Raji and Matt Flynn.

As you can see, reporters ask just about anything. One reporter even asked what Aaron’s 80-year old grandparents’ names were! Clay Matthews was a good sport when a reporter asked him to don a Troy Polamalu wig and then spell his last name, and Matt Flynn took some solid questions about playing in his home state of Texas and playing behind Aaron Rodgers.

Tom Crabtree was also happy to give one reporter a tour of his tattoos. The same reporter interviewed Andrew Quarless and Daryn Colledge on their tattoos as well.

Media Day is also a day where the news outlets aren’t the only ones to bring along cameras. Players also bring along their own equipment to capture the week they’ve been dreaming about since they were little kids.  Here are some fun pictures from the Media Days for Super Bowls XLV and XXXI.

Some People Can Just Never Win

favre check

Some people can just never win.

No matter what they do, their actions will be analyzed. Over and over. Trying to find some deeper meaning to what is said, how it was said, why was it said, why wasn’t it said. And so on. And so on. And so on.

One person who will never fully win in the eyes of Green Bay Packers fans is former quarterback Brett Favre.

It somewhat makes sense. After the messy divorce between him and the team during the Summer of 2008, and his subsequent joining their arch rivals the Minnesota Vikings, Favre alienated a portion of the fan base who once adored him.

I could mention that divorce was six years ago, and great strides have been made since then to reconcile the once frosty relationship Favre had with the Packers organizartion. Strides that include Favre and his replacement Aaron Rodgers appearing on having moved past the friction that existed between them. Strides that include Favre taking responsibility for the way things ended in Green Bay for him as a player. Strides that include the Packers welcoming Favre back into the family next year as the sole entry into the newly renovated Packers Hall of Fame as a way to honor his on field contributions during his sixteen years as a Packer. But you know, that would be foolish.

Foolish because some people can just never win.

The most recent example as to why Favre can’t win ocurred this just past week.

Packers Therapy Episode #234: Gutless in Seattle

Chris and Dave review the pathology report of the Packers nationally televised colonoscopy performed by the Seattle Seahawks. They boys talk about the sad situation at ILB and wonder if Aaron Rodgers is going the way of a post-30 year old Brett Favre Finally, to amuse themselves, the duo roll out some betting lines offered in the sports book of the Packers Therapy Hotel and Casino.

Posting its first show in 2005, Packers Therapy is the longest-running Packers podcast on the Internet. Hosts Chris and Dave began the show as a way of capturing the spirited chats the two co-workers had about the team around the office. The two have no pretense about being experts: they are just two opinionated shareholders  who love the team, follow it closely, but don’t always see the Packers fortunes eye to eye.

The guys encourage comments and questions via their Twitter feed @PackersTherapy and read and respond to as many as they can during each show.
