Alright call my 10 years old if you want but what sticks out in this picture. No pun intended/intended. I mean the Lambeau Leap is the ultimate game of fan roulette isn't it? Sometimes you jump into a bunch of Packer fans smokeshows, sometimes somebody spills some beer on you, and sometimes some bro in a Clay Matthews jersey gets you in your no no swimsuit parts. It's a gamble!
But seriously how about Randall Cobb huh? Legitimately the most exciting player I've seen with a Packer jersey on in open space. Desmond Howard with punt returns in '96 MAYBE beats him out. But the guy is like Wes Welker version 2.0. A little faster, a little better down field, but ultimately a slot receiver who is a flat out NIGHTMARE to try and tackle. Welker is a little whiter too. But remember when everyone was getting on Ted Thompson for drafting a college quarterback as a wide receiver in the second round? You think he just sits in his luxury box petting a white cat when Cobb has games like yesterday?
Also Tom 'all I do is catch touchdowns' should be in line for a longer look coming out of the bye week. Dude has 6 catches and 3 are touchdowns. And on top of the that he is a 'plus' blocker in the run and protection game. He's basically bizarro world Jermichael Finley. Might be time for a meeting with the Bob's J-Mike.
But the real story to me yesterday was this guy:
I mean to say I did a double take when they showed Vonnie Holliday on the sideline is a massive understatement. Like did people know he was still in the league? Feels like we drafted him in 1986. I had to go to his Pro Football Reference page just to find out how long ago he played for the Packers. Turns out it was 1998. Who had Vonnie Holliday being in the league for 14 years? And he still tops the 'most sacks in a single game' with that 5 spot he put up against Buffalo in 2002. Not Willie Davis. Not Sean Jones. Not Reggie White. Not Clay Matthews. Vonnie. Holliday. So this morning we did a little Vonnie Holliday trivia on the morning show. I mean how many chances do you think we'd have to do that ever again you know? I can't imagine he lasts much longer and I know I won't last much longer so no matter what else happens today at least I did a segment and blog about Vonnie Holliday*. That plus Paris Lenon was out there! I half expected a Hannibal Navies or Bernardo Harris siting. Like they went shopping at the Packer Salvation Army.
*'No matter what else happens today at least I did a segment and blog about Vonnie Holliday.' The fact that that sentence was said is cause for termination.
