    Hadn't thought of him in years until I came across this link on an ESPN board. (Yeah, I was that bored) http://www.packers.com/news-and-eve...ut-sweet/b132e6fc-3bb0-49f5-8356-9dfe5752c810
    And i read the story and it brought back so many good memories of a very sad season. So i thought I'd share it with all of you. To think how this guy ran for 171 yards in a game... is mindblowing. Considering his journey. 2 quotes pop out for me from Samkon- 1.
    To this day, I still consider myself a Packer.” 2.
    . I think my favorite part was just getting to know the city and experience the excitement. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute of it.”
    Why can't every NFL player be like this after they retire? What a likeable guy and feel-good story that actually ends good :)

    The fact that he sat in his room trying to make sense of his unexpected success, that he wasn't bitter towards TT when he got traded, the dude IS packer people. Wish the guy all the best fulfilling his dreams, may the road be as clear as the holes he ran through on that first TD run

    He was a great character guy. He thanked each offensive lineman individually after he scored his first TD.
