Long time NFL analyst, Jay Cutler, finally broke his silence regarding his former teammate, Alshon Jeffery changing teams this offseason.
“He’ll do well,” Cutler responded. “Mike Groh is there, the wide receivers coach. He had Al in Chicago when we were all there. Mike knows him really well, can get the most out of him. And I think that Al knows this is a huge year for him. You know, it’s another one-year deal for him. I mean, if he stays healthy and he works hard, I mean, the guy is unbelievable. He’s just had some bad luck with some injuries that have kind of plagued him. You know, one injury will lead to another injury to another injury. It’s hard at that position to battle back and get healthy again and be productive.”
First things first.
They call him Al?
I have now done a complete 180 on Alshon Jeffery.
Alshon is the name of a stud, go-to #1 receiver. Al is the name of your parents weird friend that they invite over because he lives by himself and has nothing else to do (sorry to any Al’s reading this.)
Maybe since his name was Al in Chicago that’s why he got hurt. If they called him by his real name, Alshon, I bet those injuries don’t creep up. Al is a name of weakness, Alshon is the name of strength. Call him Alshon, please.
The good news for us is that all the coaches and his teammates have referred to him as Alshon here. If no one could show any of them this article that would be very much appreciated. I don’t want the name Al catching on for Mr. Jeffery since I want the chance to compete with my stud #1 receiver. Thank you very much.
Other takeaways… people love Mike Groh.
Mike Groh’s style seems infectious and I want as much of that around this team as possible. He’s energetic. He’s engaged. He’s loud. And he’s smart. Instead of Greg Lewis, meagerly yelling out, “come on, guys” in a low, whimpy voice that couldn’t motivate me to make a sandwich (saying a lot), the Eagles now have Mike Groh getting all up in these guys’ face. There’s been multiple stories about Groh yelling at DGB and saying stuff like, “CAN’T CATCH THE BALL IF YOU’RE LOOKING AT THE GROUND DGB.”
Absolutely love it and yes, I’m buying all the Mike Groh stock I can.
After all, he did catch the eye of esteemed NFL analyst, Jay Cutler.
