It's fair to say that 2012 was a roller-coaster year for the Green Bay Packers. There were highs, like the Packers walking into Houston with their season hanging in the balance and handing the undefeated Texans their first loss in dominating fashion. And there were lows, like Saturday's loss in San Francisco.
Along the way, we learned a lot about the character, talent and potential of the Packers roster.
While there were a few players who could be classified as disappointments, there were a fair share of pleasant surprises as well.
We saw a used car salesman step off the car lot and walk onto Lambeau Field and become our most productive running back.
We witnessed a relatively unknown, undrafted free agent, who was a long shot, make the team and become a vital part of the Packers' offensive line.
The wonderful stories of players overcoming the odds to surprise even the most hardcore Packers fans and coaches alike does not stop there.
