Dear Green Bay Packers:

Here is a thank you card for all the lessons that you taught us in the NFC Championship game yesterday versus the Seattle Seahawks.

  1. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving that kicking field goals, especially twice on 4th and 1, one time on the one yard line, will cost you a game. It’s easy for all the critics to say go-for-it but in reality, they don’t live it. I do. I have the world record for the longest non-kicking/go-for-it streak. I don’t need advanced analytics to prove that settling for field goals won’t win games for you, especially a playoff game versus the best.
  2. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving that onside kickoffs work. Don’t give the Seahawks credit for having the balls to call for an onside kick because they had no choice but to make that call. Call an onside kick when you do have a choice and I’ll be impressed. Thank you Green Bay Packers for showing the football world that receiving an onside kick is not easy and that calling an onside kickoff should be called often, not just in emergency situations. I have called more onside kickoffs in one game than most coaches call in their entire careers and I have the evidence to prove that it works.
  3. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving that 2-point conversions work. Don’t give the Seahawks credit for having the balls to call for a 2-point conversion because they had no choice. Call for a 2-point convert when you do have a choice and I’ll be impressed. Thank you Green Bay Packers for showing the football world that defending a 2-point conversion is not easy and that calling 2-point conversions should be called often, not just in emergency situations. I have the world record for longest streak of calling for two-point conversions. I have the evidence to prove that it works.
  4. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving to the football world that, contrary to popular myth, running the ball does NOT win championships. If it did, you would have earned first downs in the 4th quarter instead of punting. If running the football worked, you would be going to the Super Bowl instead of going home.
  5. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving to the football world that playing it safe to protect a lead does not protect a lead.
  6. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving to the football world that complacency is one of the two C’s that guarantees losing. Complacency is tied for the main reason for failure in any field, sports or otherwise.
  7. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving to the football world that football thinking is stuck in myths and fairy tales written by conformists and followed by more conformists.
  8. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving that 4th down is 4th & HELL, for those who don’t go for it. 4th down is not a time to turn football into a soccer game.
  9. Thank you Green Bay Packers for proving that the 4th quarter is 4th & HELL for those who don’t go for it. The 4th quarter is not a time to slam on the brakes. Like in real-life, the 4th quarter is a time to floor it.

Dear Green bay Packers, regarding 4th & HELL, please watch this:
