It’s back to school day which means back to reality for this blogger. But, I thought I would take a brief opportunity to tell you all to Sutt Up.
I can’t believe the number of people who are up in arms over the waiving of Tyrell Sutton. For god sakes, you would think we just let Ladian Tomlinson go.
Tyrell Sutton was a nice story, the same kind of story we hear every year. He was a long shot that showed a couple of flashes. This is hardly a reason to be crowned by Packer nation as the next greatest thing since Dorsey Levens. We let a third or fourth string guy go, get over it.
There have been a long line of Tyrell Sutton’s in year’s past. Samkin Gado, Travis Jersey, and even Jersey Al’s crush Kregg Lumpkin have been heralded. They all made some splashes against the scrubs, but never panned out in the long run. Even if Sutton had made the squad, barring injury, he would have seen the ball just as much as these guys too, which is coincidentally next-to-never.
Picture this, it’s third and one from the two yard line against the Bears. Jackson, still hurt has sat out the whole game. Ryan Grant, gassed from a 35-yard run hits the sidelines for the final play against the Bears. Who do you want coming in?
I tell you what, it’s not Tyrell Sutton. It’s DeShawn Wynn.
Let’s remember to not get excited about a guy who tears it up in the third and fourth quarters of the preseason. We want a player who already knows how to get it done late in a game that actually means something. I personally would not be comfortable with Sutton in the backfield with the contest on the line. Apparently, Ted Thompson and Mike McCarthy were not either.
Tyrell Sutton is just starting to write his legacy. DeShawn Wynn has already read the book.
Good luck in Carolina Tyrell.
