woody
After the Packers beat the Bears in the NFC Championship, Charles Woodson made a speech to the team that they needed to play with one mind, one goal, one purpose, and one heart for one more game.

Six months later, that phrase was inscribed on the Super Bowl rings we showed you last night.

“It’s a beautiful ring,” Woodson said after the ceremony. “I don’t think they could have made it any more spectacular. Best ring I’ve seen. Not just saying that because it’s our ring.”

For one night, Packers players, coaches and staff forgot all about the lockout.

“It’s all about getting the ring. Every franchise that wins title, it’s all about ring. It seals the deal. We’ll enjoy it tonight. Hopefully we’ll get a settlement,” Woodson said via the Green Bay Press-Gazette.

“The mood in the room is giddy,” Packers president Mark Murphy said. “We all miss the players. To be back together with them was special.”

A trip to the White House is on hold, and will depend on whether the lockout ends in time. For one night, the focus was on the rewards of being champions.

“They wanted big and they wanted bling,” Murphy said. “We were successful in that.”

Charles Woodson speaks on Super Bowl ring

*I held it back but it was definitely an emotional moment. Proud to be part of this team, proud to be a Green Bay Packers.

*Ring feels heavy. Worked very hard, felt like I deserve to win a championship.

*It’s a beautiful ring. I don’t think they could have made it any more spectacular. Best ring I’ve seen. Not just saying that because it’s our ring.

*What I said to guys after Chicago game in NFC title game is engraved on the ring. “One mind, one goal, one more purpose for one more game.” We had to take care of business one more time.

*It’s all about getting the ring. Every franchise that wins title, it’s all about ring. It seals the deal. We’ll enjoy it tonight. Hopefully we’ll get a settlement.

*No sadness. Everybody here was a part of it. This won’t be same team this coming season, but everybody here tonight was part of title. Whatever happens after this happens.

*The way we prepared last year, brought us a title, this year we’ll prepare even harder.

*Look forward to getting to the White House. That’s another part of the deal.

Packers reunite to receive Super Bowl rings

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Although the ring was even heavier than Charles Woodson expected, it felt just right on his hand.

Woodson and his Green Bay Packers teammates received their Super Bowl rings in a private ceremony at Lambeau Field on Thursday night, and the veteran cornerback's smile beamed just as brightly as the diamond-encrusted ring he was showing off to the cameras.

"I feel like it's my right to wear this ring," Woodson said. "I feel like I worked very hard playing this game. I feel like every time I go out on that field, I leave it all out there on the field. That's the way I've always played this game. I feel like I deserve to win a championship, I feel like it's my rightful place in history to be a Super Bowl champion."

Contact between players and teams generally is prohibited during the ongoing NFL lockout, but the Packers received special permission from the NFL to hold the ceremony.

The Super Bowl was more than four months ago, and the joy-sapping nature of the unresolved labor situation makes it seem even farther in the past. But at least for one night, the memories came rushing back and concerns about the lockout faded away.

"Everybody's been separated too long," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "It's great to see everybody on a personal level. Everybody's anxious to get going on the next journey."

The Packers beat the Pittsburgh Steelers 31-25 to win the Super Bowl on Feb. 6, then held a "Return to Titletown" celebration for fans at Lambeau Field the Tuesday after the game. But they haven't been together as a team since then because of the labor situation, which has forced the cancellation of team-organized offseason conditioning programs and workouts.

While several other teams have held informal player-organized, OTA-style workouts, the Packers haven't done so yet.

"Now, we have this ring, we'll enjoy it tonight," Woodson said. "And hopefully things will get moving along with the NFL and the lockout, and we can start preparing."

McCarthy put on a cowboy hat at one point in the evening — playfully ribbing Packers players who wore cowboy hats to a preseason luncheon last year, subtly but boldly announcing their intention to finish the season at the Super Bowl in North Texas.

"It was definitely everything we expected," McCarthy said of the ceremony. "The players, they were ecstatic about it, the way they were showing each other the ring, the platinum, the diamonds, the design, I think it's something everybody is excited about it."

The actual ceremony Thursday was closed to fans and the media, but Packers players gleefully posted notes and photos from the party on their Twitter accounts. Linebacker Nick Barnett dubbed it "bling bling day!" and posted a photo of a colorful drink he called a "ringtini."

The rings feature a Packers "G" logo with 13 diamonds to symbolize each of the team's championships. Surrounding it are four more diamonds to symbolize its four Super Bowl wins.

"The one thing we knew was they wanted big, and they wanted 'bling,'" Packers president and CEO Mark Murphy said. "So I think we were successful in that."

Woodson said he was most proud that one of his postgame speeches — urging his teammates to play with one mind, one goal, one purpose and one heart — inspired an inscription inside the ring. Still, he managed to keep his emotions in check.

"I held it back," Woodson said. "I cried enough this year, so I held it back. But it was definitely an emotional moment, a moment that I waited a long time for. And finally, it's here. I get to hold up a championship ring."

One piece of a traditional Super Bowl celebration still is missing. The Packers haven't been able to schedule a trip to the White House, and Murphy said the league's labor situation is holding it up.

"That really is kind of tied into getting some resolution on the labor situation," he said. "Players don't get many opportunities to go to the White House and I hope that the timing works out to be able to do that."

Murphy said Thursday's ceremony gave everyone a chance to think about their place in the team's history.

"It was a chance for all of us to come together and really celebrate a remarkable season," Murphy said. "I think a theme that a lot of people talked about was, now, we are part of the history and tradition of the Packers. There's not a team in the league that has more tradition and history than the Packers, and we're now a part of that."

uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Guion suspension upheld...lost for 3 games
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : He works boundary...great body control...great feet...goes deep...runs well...is strong. Jordy Clone, maybe.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Tell me he doesn't remind you of 87...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_zPZNolFvPI
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Only thing that matters : 40 Yrd Dash: 4.54
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Butler is 6'2 215...Hmmm, wonder what TT has in mind. Ha.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : TT went out and got us Jordy's replacement...James Butler...not even a camp invite.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : I knew what you were saying and I loved it! From a production standpoint it was worse than college radio. It had Aaron which made it worth
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I wouldn't know good radio if it sat on my face, but I know what I find informational and worthwhile. Tuesday with Aaron, was both.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : I am saying my zero experience in radio > your whatever years. :D Bahahahahah
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : Ha! Yeah, I only was involved in making good radio for 8 years. Don't know a thing.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : Yeah, I'm not surprised I know good radio better than you. Not a big deal, you have your strengths, radio isn't one.
uffda udfa (27-Aug) : We have very different tastes. I worked in radio for many years. Thought the show was so much worse than it needed to be.
Zero2Cool (27-Aug) : NFL Pick'em v2.0 is here!
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : Wilde was great choice and if not for Jason's rapport with Aaron, never would have happened.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : I never caught it live...listened to podcast a few times. Wilde was the wrong guy for that show.
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : That was poorly worded, my mistake. I was regular, it was great peak into his life. Planned meetings around it lol
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Tuesday's with Aaron I did listen, but I wasn't a regular.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Anyone seen Polargrizzz lately, he's AWOL !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : If you listened to them, Aaron urged them to go past the 10 minutes. Jason would be an idiot to cut it off.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : The contract stated 10 minutes but the show always went longer. Sounds like 540 took advantage and perhaps he got sick of it.
uffda udfa (26-Aug) : As for Aaron's radio show, sounds like he just didn't want to do it and they took too much of his time. Was only supposed to be 10 minutes.
Smokey (26-Aug) : Don't worry, be WR happy !
Zero2Cool (26-Aug) : WR!!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : LeRoy Butler and Finley want TT to add a WR. Silverstein wrote a piece on it, including Rison mention. Let's get this!
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : The WHY is the big story, but that hasn't come out yet.
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : noooooooooooooooooooo!
Zero2Cool (25-Aug) : Aaron is done? Why????
uffda udfa (25-Aug) : If you liked "Tuesday's with Aaron" he's not doing it this year. He's done.
Zero2Cool (23-Aug) : Tolzien being evaluated for concussion. What?
hardrocker950 (23-Aug) : wow... what a joke
dhazer (23-Aug) : Cheese heads are everywhere donot be sureprised ifor we are louder
