Cheeseheads Need To Equal TDs

He has milked cows, traveled the state to become acquainted with fans, he’s slept in front of his locker the night before training camp and now he’s donning a cheesehead.  Packers TE, Martellus Bennett, has certainly said and done all the right things to garner the respect and excited anticipation of Packers fans everywhere. Bennett was one of the bigger off-season move, not just for the Packers but in all the NFL. A little advice for the charismatic pass catcher, if you really want to endear yourself to those who also wear the cheeseheads with pride, catch touchdowns and block for your quarterback like you’re protecting the holy grail.

I know Bennett wants to show those inside the walls of 1265 Lombardi Avenue that he belongs and desires to be there but the only way his acquisition pays off is if on Sunday, February 4, 2018 he’s helping Aaron Rodgers hoist another Lombardi Trophy.  Otherwise, the antics will merely become fodder for a caricature-like presence that can wear thin.
