Mickles: Playing at Lambeau not an easy task
After what happened to them Monday night in Seattle, the Green Bay Packers are probably going to be in a surly mood Sunday afternoon.
Not even the thought of having real NFL officials back on the field will be enough to make them forget perhaps the most controversial — and certainly the most talked about — finish in the league’s 90-year history.
The Packers wouldn’t be human if they didn’t want to go out the next opportunity they get and make someone pay — and make them pay dearly — for their bizarre 14-12 final-play loss to the Seahawks.
Then again, the New Orleans Saints can only hope the Packers are suffering from a hangover of epic proportions when they walk into historic Lambeau Field.
Asked Wednesday if all the furor surrounding their last game could be a distraction for the Packers, Drew Brees smiled and said that isn’t likely to be the case for a team that won the Super Bowl two seasons ago.
“I hope so. … But no, I doubt it,” Brees said. “They’re a great organization. They’re extremely well-coached. They’re used to success, so they know how to handle tough situations.
“I’m sure that’s been talked about and addressed just like we’re doing it in our own way here underneath the circumstances that we’re in.”
