Who Is Ryan Grant?


That’s the name of an NFL Network special on the Packers’ running back.  It’s was good show (except for the stupid questions from the blonde woman who interviewed Grant’s family).  Kara Henderson (not the blonde) did an extended interview with Grant about last week’s game and asked him what seemed like a logical question.  When you scored the touchdown to tie the score at 14, did you feel a weight lifted off your shoulders?  Grant allowed that it was a bit of a relief, and then added:

“You don’t win 14-14.”

Later, Grant told a story about playing behind Favre and, as his QB checked to another play at the line of scrimmage, losing focus on the play and just thinking about playing behind a legend.

Sometimes I really take a step back and realize what I’m doing.  I’m playing with a guy who is, if not the best ever, one of the top two best ever quarterbacks in the history of the game.  Like sometimes, I almost want to just grab him. ”  With that, Grant reaches out and swipes at the air.  “Alright Brett, I just touched you,” he says, laughing.
