Green Bay Packers return man Trevor Davis has spent all season up to this point on injured reserve. As expected, he will make his season debut on Thursday night when the Packers face the Seahawks.
That’s a good thing. The Packers return game has largely been garbage this season.
The Packers are averaging just 6.2 yards per punt return as a team this season. That unit is led by old man Tramon Williams’ 6.7 yards per return. The Packers kick return unit, well… you know about that. Ty Montgomery. Get the fuck out of town, dipshit!
Things Packers general manager Brian Gutekunst would have taken for Montgomery: a seventh-round pick in literally any year, a largish wheel of cheese from the Mars Cheese Castle, dinner and no less than six Miller Lites at Kroll’s or $100 in singles to spend at The Oval Office.
Trevor Davis, while having proven useless as a receiver, is a pretty damn good return man. Career averages: 12.2 per punt return and 22.7 per kick return.
You would think spending all season on the shelf thus far would have Davis chomping at the bit. And you would be wrong.
What is Davis’ plan going into his first action of the season? To try not to make plays.
“I think I can make a big impact but at the end of the day, you’ve got to just go out there and let the plays come to you. I can’t go out there trying to chase plays because I lost half of my season. But at the end of the day, plays will come. I can’t go out there trying to make plays because I’m trying to make up for plays that I missed,” Davis said.
I think what Davis was looking for there, was he can’t try to force plays. He needs to let the game come to him. Take what’s given.
You gotta get your cliches in order, Trev!
