Today’s announcement that three Packers, Clay Matthews (19), Charles Woodson (16), and Aaron Rodgers (11), were named to the NFL’s top 100 players of 2011 was satisfying and is a great tribute to those individuals.
However, it’s got to be even more gratifying to the other players, coaches and administrators who are a part of this great organization.
Individual recognition is awesome for these players – they certainly love being recognized by their peers and fans.
But this is just a list, a popularity contest, if you will.
We all know that lists are great, but we also know that they mean absolutely nothing.
What matters are championships. It’s a team sport made up of individuals.
Sure, we’re happy with the accolades, but we’re way more impressed with the George Halas and Vince Lombardi trophies, thank you.
