The Green Bay Packers non-parade Super Bowl celebration at Lambeau Field continued with defensive stars being brought on stage.
Charles Woodson, injured during Super Bowl XLV, said he never plans to come down from his Super Bowl high. He also says the week after the team’s game against the New England Patriots was the critical moment in the season.
Clay Matthews spoke quickly and forcefully about his teammates and fans, showing he still has some things to work on before he can begin his professional wrestling career. Matthews talked about Woodson’s passionate halftime speech, when the injured defensive back urged the team to keep fighting despite being down so many players.
Nick Collins, whose pick six of Ben Roethlisberger gave the Packers an early 14-0 lead, praised Green Bay’s poise and resolve. Collins mentioned how special it was to see Packers fans waiting for the team’s arrival after the game.
Defensive coordinator Dom Capers claimed the best defensive players and fans in the NFL.
