Some guys you just love. For the way they play, the way they go about their business and for the things they say. For the Green Bay Packers, recently, James Jones and his damn hoodie come to mind. Al Harris, who I personally nicknamed Solid, because that’s what he was, does as well. And we are now reminded that Tramon Williams is also in that category.
Probably should have never let the guy walk, but hell, we drafted Damarious Randall and Quinten Rollins!
What we had forgotten is that Tramon got burned on the final play of that hellhole of an NFC Championship in Seattle. It was his final play as a member of the GBP.
And that’s where the unfinished business comes in. Williams played two years in Cleveland and last year in Arizona. Two places where you’re not going to win a championship.
But you might win one in Green Bay.
“I feel like there’s unfinished business,” Williams said, via our main man Demovsky, who like Cher and Madonna only needs one name.
“To walk off the field on my last play as a Packer getting scored on to go to the Super Bowl, it was a tough way to end it. But God puts you in different situations. I ended up leaving and there was a reason why I left — for me to grow. I feel over these last three years, I’ve grown so much more than I would’ve probably ever done while I was here. Now it’s time for me to come back here and get things in order. I’m up for that challenge. I believe that we will be back in the big dance when it’s all said and done. I’m hoping that these guys are here with me, and we’re going to get it done.”
It’s hard not to appreciate that guy’s leadership and passion.
We have long scourged the day the Packers released Charles Woodson. They didn’t just lose a playmaker that day. They lost a team leader. One they were unable to replace.
There are leaders on this team now, but Tramon might be the most valuable one on the defensive side of the ball.
