    The Packers are running out of numbers to retire.

    Everyone knows that Taylor was a Packer -- they can retire his # if they like -- but they will never have the above

    He's a native of Louisiana, went to LSU, and still does the Saints games I believe. That might have something to do with it. ( I'm not sure about the broadcaster gig )
