Packers Leave For Dallas Today

by

Green Bay, Wis. (WHBL-Learfield) - The Green Bay Packers leave this afternoon for Dallas, bound and determined to avoid the distractions and pitfalls of past Super Bowl contestants. Guard Josh Sitton says he won’t do anything special during the week and the general consensus of the team is that winning the Lombardi Trophy is the only item on their agenda. Safety Nick Collins calls it a “business trip.” And coach Mike McCarthy will want a normal pre-game week as possible, knowing it could be easier said than done. Still, they’re confident they can avoid fiascos like former Packer Eugene Robinson soliciting a prostitute the night before the Super Bowl when he was with Atlanta, or Cincinnati’s Stanley Wilson going on a cocaine binge the night before the Super Bowl.   McCarthy met with captains Aaron Rodgers and Charles Woodson last week to talk about team rules and curfews during the week.  All players-and-coaches will take part in the Super Bowl Media Day on Tuesday. Practice is on Wednesday through Friday on the Field-Turf at Southern Methodist University, with media sessions and team meetings beforehand. Yesterday the Packers practiced about 20 minutes longer than normal inside the Don Hutson Center.  Linebacker Erik Walden was the only active player to sit out. The status of his injured ankle will be reviewed again Wednesday.
