Green Bay Packers fans, I know you are still hurting.

I am too.

It’s perfectly natural; what happened this past weekend is still only a few days old. Something so sudden and painful doesn’t just go away that fast.

Hopefully, we can help each other along through this healing process.

You know how it works: I’ll write down a recap of what happened in that game Sunday, and you can read it if you like.

I make no promises and place no real expectations on it, but I think reading this and writings by myself and others could help provide closure to an assuredly heartbreaking experience.

I know that as a writer, typing up what happened for mass consumption can hopefully help give me some of that desired closure as well.

We’ll get through this, everyone. It won’t be fast, nor will it be easy, but all we can do is move forward.

In that vein, let’s begin.

I’ll start with the most damaging reason overall, though it has undoubtedly gotten lost in the quagmire of reasoning for most people by now.
