MORE GOLD FROM THE GREEN & GOLD
GREEN BAY - After pressing and turning in a dreadful performance against Mike Holmgren the first time he faced him, student Brett Favre has won 3 straight Lambeau Field meetings against his teacher. So I love the fact that Favre says his success, is top secret. But Favre was revealing in saying that Holmgren has changed the least since he started with Brett in 1992.
Favre's story on the infamous Matt Hasselbeck "we're going to get the ball and we're going to score" comment was hilarious. Ahman Green came up to him and said, "did you hear what Matt said?" And Brett said "what, heads, tails?"
The Aaron Kampman vs. Patrick Kearney matchup could decide this game. The defensive ends are very similar, and pressure this time of the year is a big difference maker. Just ask Hasselbeck...after the Packers called an all-out blitz, and threw the ill-fated pass to Al Harris that became a pick 6.
By the way, I counted at least 7 times that Al Harris said "I'm over it" or "I'm not talking about it anymore" when talking about his game winning pick 4 years ago. C'mon Al, it's still the only defensive TD in OT that decided a playoff game in NFL history...just come out and say it was a huge play.
