Packers react to Seahawks' Super Bowl loss

2/1/2015

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Lest you had any doubt about which team the Green Bay Packers -- or at least a couple of their offensive linemen -- were rooting for in Super Bowl XLIX, David Bakhtiari and T.J. Lang cleared that up as the New England Patriots were putting the finishing touches on their improbable win against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday night.

Sure, Bakhtiari and Lang were no doubt still bitter over the Packers' collapse against the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game two weeks earlier, but there's been an unfriendly rivalry between the two teams ever since the Fail Mary game in 2012. The Packers weren't happy with how the Seahawks celebrated after a game in which they felt the replacement officials handed Seattle the win.

The next year, the Packers played the Seahawks in a preseason game that was chippy to say the least.

Lang's message hit cyberspace shortly after Seahawks linebacker Bruce Irvin was ejected for instigating a fight following the Patriots' game-clinching interception of Russell Wilson near the goal line in the game's final seconds.

A few minutes later, Lang offered something more politically correct.
