    The room was finally empty. Desolate. His teammates cleared out, coaches cleared out, media members cleared out.
    Inside the visitors' locker room at Ford Field, T.J. Lang was finally alone with his thoughts.
    Clutching his bag, the Green Bay Packers left guard took a deep breath.

    Lang would've handled this differently three years ago. But not now. Not after his transformation, not with everything he's going through.
    "I could easily take this situation, go out and do dumb (expletive) to try to forget about it," Lang said. "I've learned that's not the way to take care of things."

    The "situation" is every son's nightmare. Lang's father - some 20 minutes from Ford Field - is battling a life-threatening illness. Without specifying, Lang said his dad, Tom Lang, would begin treatment this week. Perspective hit like a head-on collision. The news rocked him.

    Dad never missed a game at Lambeau Field. Ever. And seven hours before Lang's game against Minnesota Vikings on Nov.‚ÄČ14, he discovered his dad's health had turned south. Someone would be missing.

    That would certainly explain why the flashes that we saw from him early on in his career never amounted to anything more than flashes until this season. Thank you Jesus! And SO LONG DARRYN "GOD'S GIFT TO FOOTBALL" COLLEDGE!!!!

    I don't miss the Colledge Experience...at all...I felt Lang would be good when he filled in at LT for Clifton back in '08, he was moved all over that line and played decently as a rookie, I'm not shocked he's playing well now, more like I'm pleased that he's playing well b/c I felt he could
