Just another reason to love the Packers - they are so Lou.
The Packers changed nothing about their classic, green and gold look. They also will not use the fabric that is reportedly lighter, particularly when wet. When Nike described the Pack's uniforms, they put it quite simply:
"The Green Bay Packers have chosen to stay with their traditional design aesthetic as well as their former uniform fabrication for the coming season."
Would you expect anything less of a team who is so rooted in the NFL's history? This is the team of Curly Lambeau and Vince Lombardi and the first Super Bowls. The Packers have kept their uniform essentially the same for 50 years. Bart Starr, Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers didn't need the fancy technology to win Super Bowls in the past. Why would they need it now?
Irvin said he understands that coaches fire up their players by talking about physical football. But when Williams urged his players to go after 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree’s ACL, he crossed a line that Irvin believes is unforgivable.
“Since you were a baby you’ve understood never take out a man’s knees and on this tape he’s talking about taking out an ACL,” Irvin said on NFL Network. “I almost threw up when I heard it. I pulled back any covers that I may have had for a coach. If he is out of the league forever, it would be only the right thing to do.”
