Jennings is great because of the quarterback throwing him the ball these days.

Packers fans, Plenty for which to be thankful

There’s plenty for which to be thankful, Packers fans. Certainly this team is something special … And great.

We all gather together today with family and friends to raise our glasses in praise, bow our heads in humility, and remember and pay homage to all that make our lives meaningful.

There are as many reasons to be thankful as there are people in this world, which means as many as six billion.

But for football fans, the thanks come in the hues of their favorite team. For Green Bay Packers fans there are many, many reasons to be thankful for this season and the 92 others that have come before. As I sit writing this the exercise is to list as many as I can.

So, here goes:

Aaron Rodgers’ arm and brains

Mike McCarthy’s play calling abilities

Lambeau Field


4 Super Bowl titles

13 Championships

Ted Thompson and his decision to stand by Aaron Rodgers

Daryn Colledge’s decision to go to Arizona

Randall Cobb’s speed

BJ Raji’s versatility

Charles Woodson’s leadership

Clay Matthew’s hair and humility

Greg Jennings desire to Be Great every day

Jordy Nelson’s ability to fly under the national media’s radar almost as well as his ability to fly by defensive backs

Charlie Peprah’s quiet resolve

James Stark’s toughness

James Jones’ strength in understanding his role

Donald Driver’s presence

Mason Crosby’s consistency

Tim Masthay’s strong leg

The decision to defer the opening kickoff all those weeks

The fact that we root for the Packers and not the Vikings … Or the Colts

The fact that our quarterback is not Tim Tebow

That this is a team made up of superstars who believe there is no I in team

That Ndamukong Suh and Jay Cutler play for other teams

That the Packers will never have to worry about not having a stadium to play in.

… And so forth.

Think about your own reasons to be thankful and enjoy today’s game … This team continues to make history … And we’re all part of it.
