Yeah, the Grant Wistrom comparisons will really run amuck now. Other than being white and having high motors there aren't a lot of similarities though. And why is it that only white players seem to be called "high motor", which is often a nice way of knocking one's athleticism. I remember when every white WR was compared to Ricky Proehl. I actually remember watching a Rams game and the announcer said, "Kevin Curtis is a lot like Ricky Proehl, he's not the fastest guy, but he's real crafty." Talk about not knowing sh*t about a player and just falling back on a stereotype, Curtis is usually the fastest player on the field. Anyways, yeah, the Wistrom comparison will start flying. I don't know what other numbers were available, but I would have picked something else if I were him.

lol that was a fast change. I like all D-linemen in the 90's but the Packers have Kampman-74 and Jenkins-77 so 70's have grown on me. Hopefully for you guys hell turn out like Howie.

Glad I've been waiting on ordering the jersey.

Haha, yeah, but it could have been a novelty item. People would be looking at you thinking, "Who the hell is #98 Long?"

He isn't going to wear #98. This is an old thread.
