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.
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.
Brett Favre took Jim McMahon’s advice and wore sunglasses to Media Day because “all the cameras and stuff would bother his eyes.” The incessant questions about his stint in drug rehab drove Favre to say, “I would much rather be in the hotel room watching TV” and leave his microphone after about one minute.
