A Final Word About the NFC Championship Game.

A message of hope, love and understanding from the ashes of the meltdown in Seattle. 

I thought for sure Packers players would report today and there would mercifully be no questions about the meltdown in Seattle back in January. After all, it's the first day of a new campaign. There are a plethora of forward-looking storylines that are waiting to be explored. Surely the need to pick at an old scab would not be the first headline out of 2015's media availability. 

I was wrong

Now that those questions have been asked and answered, I bring a message of hope, love and understanding that is wrought from the detritus of that fateful Sunday afternoon. 

A message that I hope resonates up to and past the opening of training camp, when I am sure the lure of exploiting old wounds might prove tempting for those loveable ink-stained wretches on our local beat. 

Verily.

"We haven't talked about it. Nobody's really bringing it up," receiver Randall Cobb said".

I personally wouldn't mind them talking about it. But, talk about it, don't talk about it... whatever it takes to ensure that never happens again.

Bumstick is gone, so he can f-up in minny. Sends a clear message to other players, screw up and end up in MN where careers end.

After the Cardinals lost their quarterback I thought that's a tough break for them. After the Lions had the cowboy game stolen from them I thought, that's about the worst playoff loss I could remember. After the cowboys lost with the help of a strange call I thought that's a pretty brutal defeat but they had it comin. After the Packers stumbled my heart was sickened to the level of fourth and 26. But all my pain was cured after watching the Seahawks absolute worst and most heartbreaking loss in SuperBowl history. Last year was a trail of tears for all of the NFC. Packers are just moving on.

That was cathartic I guess. I do vote for calling it "The Game That Not Be Mentioned" from here on out though. As I said in another post, I'm still having trouble dealing with it.

But if they were going to mention it in camp I would hope it would be something like this:

WE WILL NEVER SLIDE AFTER AN INTERCEPTION IN ANY SITUATION EVER AGAIN. WE WILL TAKE EVERY TURNOVER TO THE HOUSE. THERE WILL BE NO SIGN FOR GETTING DOWN EVER AGAIN.

Love the irony. The press incessantly brings up a past game asking the Packers if THEY'VE moved on from it...at this rate they'll still be asking when AR gets his second ring.
