Because the Packers are still in the hunt for the Super Bowl ring, from my headline one could assume I am speaking of Aaron Rodgers, and quite frankly, I joyfully am!
I began my article a few days before the Dallas game and as I was writing, was thinking of our Big Red here, totally immersed in his mischievous adventures on the farm, he and his cohorts. But when our amazing No. 12 led his Packers in a stunning, mind-blowing victory over the detestable Dallas Cowboys, I just had to include him in the title of Leader of the Pack!
The next day during all of the talking-head shows, we gleefully watched a dejected Jerry Jones discuss next year (Really? Poor guy, he has to wait a whole year) and remembered how unusually quiet Troy Aikman became as he realized Mason’s 51-yard field goal at the end of regulation just booted his precious Cowboys out of the playoff run.
Oh goodness gracious, how sweet it is.
