Team ’93 is the rallying cry for the 2013 version of the Green Bay Packers.  According to Aaron Rodgers and several others, it’s because the Packers are entering their 93rd year in existence. In order for TEAM 93 to win their division, they needed to change the look of their team, by becoming bigger, [...]
I see five pieces to the puzzle that, if all goes as expected, will help the defense, and will make TEAM 93 a more physical team when compared to 2012. These five pieces bring attitude, a physical presence, and the tough guy style the Packers so dearly missed last season.

best line:

Quote:
• Johnny Jolly: Johnny Jolly will hurt you, within the rules. He will lay the wood on running backs coming through the line, stopping them dead in their tracks, and then will get up and chirp in their ear all the way back to the huddle. Jolly has rubbed off on some of the young players like a Mike Daniels.

Hopefully these guys are able to translate their attitude and toughness to the rest of the team and the "Packers are soft" label will be buried under the frozen tundra.
This is going to be an exciting year for us Packers fans!

I truly hope someone in that front seven lets their inner "Wayne Simmons" off the chain this season.. a true bad ass between the lines.

Give a crap if it is a rookie backer or a motivated Jolly.. just someone to supply that emotional juice.



Apropos for this weekend...

Simmons said:
In his pre-game talk, Holmgren told the Packers there was only one way to knock off the Super Bowl champions on their home turf: Kick the crap out of them.

Holmgren’s talk hit home with Wayne Simmons. Of all the Packers in the locker room that day, including fierce competitors like Reggie White, LeRoy Butler, and Brett Favre, no one liked the idea of kicking the crap out of the 49ers better than Simmons.

At 6-foot-2, 250 pounds, Simmons was far from the biggest player on the team, but he may have been the meanest on the field. He intimidated opponents with his brute strength, inspired teammates with his pointed criticism and comments, and played without fear.

It’s no wonder Simmons got along well with defensive coordinator Fritz Shurmur, who once said, “If you don’t like to fight, you shouldn’t be in this business.”

Simmons liked to fight. “He brought that toughness and nastiness to the Green Bay Packers,” said George Koonce, who started at linebacker next to Simmons in 1996. “Wayne would take a fight in the bar and take it right into the street. He brought that fight to the defense. He was a hell of a player.”

Buoyed by Holmgren’s speech, Simmons made a difference that day in San Francisco. On the 49ers’ first offensive play of the game, Steve Young threw a screen pass to fullback Adam Walker, but Simmons saw it coming.

He drilled Walker with a vicious hit, jarring the ball loose. Packers rookie Craig Newsome picked up the ball and ran untouched 31 yards to the end zone. It was the first blow in what would become a 27-17 victory, a win that took the Packers to the NFC championship game for the first time since 1967.

I like that players and the team have responded to the "soft" label, or so it seems anyway. We'll see on Suday.

Agreed. There is a huge difference between pouting and saying "I don't like it when you call me names". And someone taking the guy's head off and while the guy is laying on the ground tell him, "F@ YOU. Who's soft now?"

Duuuuuude! That was awesome!!!!!!!!! Thank you! I miss Wayne Simmons, and you're right, we need another to take his place.

Hey, all I care about is that we beat the fuck out of them, and beat the fuck out of them... if you know what I mean. Make the 49ers hurt, and make them lose.
