The Packers have always had a great home field advantage. For years, teams have struggled to win at Lambeau Field. As the Packers prepare to play the New England Patriots on Sunday, Rashan Gary has a message for Packers fans.
Rashan Gary’s Message To Packers Fans
Rashan Gary today with a smile: "Lambeau, fans, please come out and make it louder than what y'all did last home game."

For the first home game, Jaire Alexander urged the crowd to come and be crazy. Rashan Gary is echoing that message for this Sunday. In post practice interviews, Gary said, “Lambeau, fans, please come out and make it louder than what y’all did last home game.” He doesn’t want the same level of intensity. Gary wants the fans to be even louder. This will be hard as the first home game was against the Bears which always brings more intensity. However, Gary and the rest of the team clearly believe the fans can do it.
Packers Understand Importance Of Home Crowd
While some have questioned the advantage that Lambeau Field can give, there is not question that the Packers play better there. In this game, the crowd can help the defense especially gain the advantage. It looks as though Brian Hoyer will be the starting quarterback. Mac Jones was present at practice today telling teammates to not count him out for Sunday but that scenario seems unlikely. Hoyer does not have much experience running this offense on a week to week basis and the crowd can help disrupt some timing.
Rashan Gary’s message to Packers fans is simple. Show up and be loud. The Packers know the importance of all home games. They also understand that no game can be taken for granted and they want the crowd to show up. All of these messages from the players show how much they feed off the crowd. Expect the crowd to respond to Gary’s message and make life difficult for the Patriots offense.
