    Enjoy! Also, on "Numbers Never Lie" the analyst explained that Jordy Nelson is having the best year ever by a receiver when it comes to efficiency. He was 58% more efficient than other receivers when it came to the situation, route that he ran and how efficient he was on the route, and types of catches. He also was most efficient ever in YAC and almost every other statistic since they started doing it in 1990. He said that there is no question that Jordy is the best receiver on the Packers this year and that he is the best ever! He explained why he was better over Rice and others, but I can't seem to find the video.. I'll post it when I can!

    That is so cool. I love that sport science guy. Love how he talks.

    And Jordy? What can I say, his vestibulo-ocular reflex ROCKS! :D

    Great find, Bensalama21! That "pirouette" catch keeping his feet inbounds was one of the best catches I've ever seen. Jordy has been just amazing this year. It seems almost every time Rodgers scrambles to his right he finds Jordy tiptoeing on the sideline for the catch.

    Thompson & staff + Second Round WRs = SUCCESS: Jennings, Nelson, and Cobb...

    Not just that, he's a stud at finding gems in the undrafted free agent pool. :cool:

    I think that he thinks that they are "draft worthy" but since he knows nobody else is interested in them, he just goes for the more "popular" people in the draft to snatch them before someone else.

    I heard Skip Bayless said Tim Tebow was a better Wide reciever than Jordy Nelson

    Who doesn't? lol... Teams that throw the ball, have a great QB, and have good receivers are my favorite things in football. We just happen to have those things. :cool:

    Maclin Great? I now doubt the integrity your source. I did love watching Nelson's near endless clutch ability this past year though
