he limited the potential success to a “pickup” game against a summer league opponent.

That Packers team is one of only two Super Bowl-winning teams in NFL history to have the NFL’s No. 1 scoring offense and scoring defense in the same season, the other being the undefeated 1972 Dolphins.

Golden, a St. Louis native and former high school Kids Basketball Jerseys Cheap running back who wanted to be Marshall Faulk growing up, also attributed his improved play to some things he learned as a rookie from former Cardinals teammate Dwight Freeney, whom Golden called a mentor and big brother.
