Good news, folks; it seems that Packers Santa has returned to Green Bay for the third straight year.
In 2010, Packers Santa and I took ride on his sleigh and delivered a bag of coal to Mike McCarthy. They had lost two games in a row and three out of their last four. The message came through loud and clear and the Packers went on a six game winning streak that ended with a Super Bowl win over the Steelers in Dallas. Thanks again Santa!
In 2011, the Packers had just had their 19-game winning streak ended by the Chiefs. Packers Santa presented the Packers with some blank paper, in hopes that starting with a clean sheet would propel the Packers on a new winning streak. Once again, Packers Santa helped the Packers right the ship, as they went out and won their next two games. Unfortunately, the Packers then met their Waterloo against the Giants in the playoffs.
In 2012, Packers Santa didn’t feel the need to send any messages. Instead, he thought it would be better to just reward the Packers for all their hard fought wins with a week off to rest. The Packers have won four in a row and nine of their last ten. So Packers Santa pulled a few strings and arranged for the Seahawks (how ironic) to beat the 49ers, vaulting the Packers into the position of second seed and a first round playoff bye.
