Packers taking the high road


You would think there isn’t any place for this type of behavior in the NFL, but if you thought that you’re wrong.

The Packers players weren’t pulling any punches after last night’s game when they commented about the Falcons and their propensity to perfect the life of a cheap shot artist.

But it’s not artistry we’re talking about here … it’s just bad news.

Take the jump here for a couple of quotes left after the game by B.J. Raji and Ryan Pickett.

First Raji: “Great teams don’t indulge in the kind of cheap stuff the Falcons do. We’re the champions and we play that way. We walk away from the stuff they pull. These guys are coached to play after the whistle.

“I don’t know what the deal is. I think it’s a lack of talent on their part. We didn’t worry about any of that. We came out and played our game.”

 

Here’s Pickett: “It’s unnecessary. They call it playing physical. But it’s after the whistle. It’s not physical. We know it watching tape that they like to hit after the whistle. You have to watch yourself around the piles. They point at you if you react. We just felt like if we just punch them up front at the start it would end that.

Our hope is that these two teams meet again in the playoffs … In Green Bay.
