Not on the Larry English Bandwagon Yet!

By Ernie Padaon

Don’t get me wrong, I love what I saw from Larry on Sunday, BUT it will take a little more than one game to get me to jump onto the Larry English bandwagon.

Even Ryan Leaf threw a touchdown pass or two. Even Buster Davis caught a deep pass or two. Let’s not start all this crazy talk about Larry getting ready to break out after one good game!

We need to see him do it again.. and after that, we want to see him do it again! And again! And again!

He was a first round draft pick! He might not ever live up to the comparisons to Clay Mathews, but if he can build on his performance from Sunday, there will be a lot more fans in his cheering section.

Let’s first hope he can stay healthy for a whole season and maybe he can impress us with that pass rush. I am hoping for a bunch more sacks this season, but I won’t hold my breath. If he does become that threat to the quarterbacks, then we can all claim AJ Smith as a genius again! Maybe.
