    Good, solid player when healthy. That obviously took a nose dive late in his career.

    His sack of AR and then doing the “Discount Doublecheck” move which blew out his knee was the nail in his coffin. Although it was hilarious to see and that coming from a Detroit fan.

    Remember that one time he did the championship belt thing to Aaron Rodgers and then had his knee explode? Thats how I will always remember him.
