The Green Bay Packers announced on Wednesday that former cornerback Al Harris would retire as a member of the club. Harris, 38, spent seven of his 14 NFL seasons in Green Bay, but is remembered best for his pick-six of Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in overtime of an NFC wild card playoff game on Jan. 4, 2004 after Hasselbeck (a former Packer himself) famously declared, “We want the ball and we’re going to score.” This one play from the 2003 playoffs is what Packers fans will remember most about Al Harris. That play cemented his place in Packers lore and almost single-handedly defined his tenure in Green Bay. He earned a Super Bowl ring with the Packers in 2010 despite being on the PUP list for the majority of the season. But it’s the play from nearly a decade ago that fans in Wisconsin will remember forever. He won’t be mentioned along the all-time greats that have played at Lambeau Field like Bart Starr, Paul Hornung, Ray Nitschke, Reggie White, Brett Favre and others, but he’s certainly an individual that will receive a loud welcome any time he comes back to Titletown. He’s also shown promise as a coach, having been hired by Andy Reid to be an assistant defensive backs coach in Kansas City. The post Al Harris’ legacy with the Green Bay Packers cemented by one play appeared first on Midwest Sports Fans.
