Blogger Blitz: More motivation for Packers

Let me first pull a few quotes from the opening sequence of "The Incredible Hulk," one of my favorite television shows during the late 1970's and early 1980's. (Yes, I'm that old.)
When David Banner grows angry or outraged, a startling metamorphosis occurs.
The creature is driven by rage and pursued by an investigative reporter.
"Mr. McGee, don't make me angry. You wouldn't like me when I'm angry."
Yes, suffice it to say, something happens to the Green Bay Packers when they face public criticism during times of adversity. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared to speak for the team when he told NBC that critics should quiet down after a six-touchdown performance in the Packers' 42-24 victory over the Houston Texans.
Speaking on his ESPN 540 radio show this week, Rodgers made clear the team is motivated by criticism.
"It doesn't hurt," Rodgers said, "when everybody and anybody is voicing their negative opinion, kind of waiting for us to have a little falter here."
So as a public service to the Packers and their fans, I've done my part to keep the wave rolling in this week's Blogger Blitz video.
