I can't echo this sentiment from Chris over at Ol' Bag of Donuts strongly enough:
When we – by “we” I mean fans and the media who cover the team – talked about the Green Bay Packers’ offensive weapons before the season started, who did we talk about?
We talked about Greg Jennings and how he was going to take his place amongst the elite wideouts in the league.
We talked about James Jones and Jordy Nelson and how they were going to both breakout at the No. 3 and No. 4 wideout spots, respectively.
We talked about tight end Jermichael Finley and how he’d become the X factor this team had lacked, particularly in the red zone.
You know who we didn’t talk about?
Well, we did, but it was more in terms of saying things like, “He’s probably on the decline, but he’s still got another solid year or two in him before he’s gone.”
Looks like we were all dead wrong.
He has, without a doubt, been a revelation through the first three weeks of the 2009 season.
