Packers Dedicate Sunday’s Game To Philbins

8 5

There hasn’t been much talk from the Green Bay Packers this week, which is understandable after offensive coordinator Joe Philbin‘s son Michael was found dead on Monday.

The team and organization are obviously rallying around Philbin and linebacker Clay Matthews told Colin Cowherd they’ll dedicate Sunday’s game against the New York Giants to the Philbins.

“It’s a terrible tragedy,” Matthews said. “Being that the Packers organization is truly a family-first environment, we feel for the Philbin family. It goes without saying this game and how we approach it and how we play it will be dedicated to him. Hopefully we do it the right way.”

There’s a possibility Philbin won’t be with the team on Sunday, but coach Mike McCarthy said the team has a contingency plan in place should Philbin not be available.

We always hope the Packers win on Sunday, but let’s hope they can get one for their offensive coordinator this weekend.

    bad news for the giants. i can’t remember the last time a tragedy negatively affected a team (in terms of outcome of course). packers win this one BIG!

  2. Bears Fan

    The spread is 8, home team gets 3 anyway but that leaves 5 points. It’s going to be an epic shootout bros, just like Dec 3rd…and I hope the Packers fans all end up face down in a river of disillusion Sunday night.

  3. NJ Giants Fan

    This tragedy was a distraction for the Packers organization, no question about that. I only hope Packer fans do not use this as an excuse when the Giants pummel the Packers and move forward in the playoffs.
