Garrett Wolfe focuses on 45, not 53

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Former Northern Illinois star Garrett Wolfe never let all the talk of him being cut before this season distract him.

Wolfe has endured enough bumps since the Bears selected him in the third round of the 2007 NFL Draft.

"I've here through the last three seasons, when things haven't been going that great," Wolfe said. "Then, people always question whether or not I'm going to be here. But people focus on the wrong thing. They focus on the 53. You know, I'm on the 45, so it's very gratifying, because I've been through some tough stretches."

Of course, Wolfe would love to play on offense. But, he was passed on the depth chart by Kahlil Bell. Yet Wolfe remains a key player on special teams.

"I know the talent that's here, and what this team is capable of, and I'm happy to see things starting to take shape," he said.

Here, here for the best back since Wally Payton. Yes, it's one of life's deep mysteries why Forte and Taylor are starting ahead of Wolfe--such obvious 2,000-yard greatness that neither Jerry nor any other team recognizes as well. Poor Garrett has been relegated to the land of the talent blind. He should not only be in the Hall of Fame but maybe Mount Rushmore as well. I raise my glass of premium Mad Dog 20/20 high in a toast of: TOTAL BEAST!
