blog / 01.05.2017 Pumped For The Playoffs
I am so excited that I finally get to be a part of the playoffs. I haven’t had a chance to play in a playoff game since I have been in the league. It is definitely exciting to think about what this weekend means and the energy that can fill an entire franchise. I may not have been able to taste the playoffs until now, but I can tell you I am ready for it.
The aspect of going to Lambeau Field for our game just adds to the mystique of it all. We’re playing in the cold, in January, against one of the original franchises and in one of the most historic stadiums in the NFL. It does not get much better than that. Lambeau is where legends are made.
The Green Bay defense is going to give us all that we can handle on Sunday. They did a great job of keeping us wrapped up in our matchup earlier in the year and we know they are going to come into the game wanting to take away the big play from us. They will have their corners playing inside technique with two high safeties over the top. Those safeties, Morgan Burnett and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, are two of the best safeties in the league. We also have to watch for a fierce and versatile pass rush from Julius Peppers, Nick Perry and Clay Matthews.
The Packers are ready to go and they will always be a championship threat with Aaron Rodgers under center. We are going to do every single thing it takes to get this win. Let’s go!!!
