GREEN BAY - "It's unbelievable.  We'll be remembered forever."

With those words, Packers wide receiver Jordy Nelson spoke the truth to 50,000-plus devotees at Lambeau Field during "Return to Titletown," the celebration of their Super Bowl XLV win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The shock seemed to spread to the other members of his receiving corps.

"It was unbelievable," said Greg Jennings who caught two scoring passes in the 31-25 win.

"You play this game to get to that stage.  To have an opportunity to bring the Lombardi Trophy back here, it's unreal right now."

It at least seemed real to his other fellow starting wide receiver, who could not finish the game due to injury.

"We're Super Bowl Champs, baby!" yelled Donald Driver.

"Guys believed.  When you get guys believe that you can accomplish anything, you can do it...we've got the Vince Lombardi Trophy back at home."

"Guys believed.  When you get guys believe that you can accomplish anything, you can do it...we've got the Vince Lombardi Trophy back at home.

"We love you (fans) so much.  Without you, we wouldn't be able to accomplish what we accomplish.  We love you guys.  Thank you for your support."

Another wide receiver on the team commented on the support of teammates that was critical.

"It's a great group of receivers.  I love playing with them.  We're very unselfish.  If we weren't unselfish, we couldn't bring the trophy home," said James Jones.

But it's not just wide receivers who shine on this offense, but blockers who make it possible.

For one offensive lineman, it's been a sleepless pair of celebration days after the Super Bowl win.

"I got two hours of sleep in 48 hours.  It was exciting," said Scott Wells, the man who snaps the football to Aaron Rodgers.

"Aaron did an excellent job out there. If we give him time, he can pick any defense apart.  Our offense did an awesome job."

One of the loudest cheers came for a fullback who has a recognizable long-u vowel which emanated often during Packers games.

"Our whole team is (blue collar)," said John Kuhn.

"We play on Lambeau Field, the Frozen Tundra.  We're going to come out here and bear it...we're proud here to bring the trophy to you."

So was the coordinator of the offensive unit.

"We got a great bunch of guys," said Joe Philbin. 

"They never gave up.  They believed in themselves.  They just kept working.  A great group of assistant coaches.  The position guys on offense did a phenomenal job."
