It's always interesting learning how others have become fans of the Green Bay Packers.


Myself. I was about 9 years old when I was at a family friends house watching what would later be called the Instant Replay game. After that moment, I was hooked. Then a few years later I lived within a mile or so of the stadium and could hear the crowd. The fly overs were awesome too. It just intensified my passion for the team.

For me i was a bit more different being from the UK. We only ever got 1 hour highlights of the Superbowl 2 weeks after the event, so when in 1982 a new tv channel started showing highlights of a game from the previous week I decided to start watching this strange, alien sport. That season culminated with the skins winning SB17. The following season I decided I needed to pick a team to follow. The game on tv that week was Redskins at Packers. So as the skins were the reigning champions I didn't want to jump on the bandwagon so chose the Packers as my team. 30 years later I am more rabid about the Pack than ever. I eat, sleep and breathe Green Bay.

The 25th anniversary of the Instant Replay Game reminded me of this thread. I am surprised others haven't chimed in.

Smokey (13h) : It should not just be assumed that everyone knows what,"Wonderlic" is .
Zero2Cool (13h) : Most players don't care about wonderlic. Some agents prep players. Not reasonable standard.
beast (14h) : We shouldn't judge. ..
uffda udfa (14h) : He has a rep for keen football intelligence. Some guys just don't come across as bright.
uffda udfa (14h) : What thing should we judge intelligence on? Wonderlic is out to you. How he sounds is out.. what is criteria?
uffda udfa (14h) : Are you taking issue with him not being particularly bright? Based on what?

uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Need some strong sharp passionate voices on D. Daniels gives great quotes.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Nick Perry seems to be the team leader as he was giving pregame speeches that seemed very uninspiring.
uffda udfa (23-Jan) : Morgan and his 14 wonderlic. Ever hear him talk? Man, not a bright guy at all.
