KUUUUUUUHHHHHHHHNNNNNNNNNN! John Kuhn, Packer legend, signed a deal April 16th that will see him part of Green Bay’s broadcast team for the upcoming season. He will provide insight and analysis for every game the Packers play this year. I missed John Kuhn and am excited to have him back with the team. He’s up there with Donald Driver, Nick Collins, and Al Harris as one of my favorite Packer players of all-time.
With the Packers, John Kuhn made teams rethink what it meant to be a fullback in the National Football League. His ability to run the ball and catch the ball out of the backfield made defensive coordinators actually plan for him. Kuhn was a three-time Pro-Bowler (all with Green Bay) a Second Team All-Pro in 2011 and a First Team All-Pro in 2014. He even made it into the NFL Top 100 list in 2012. He was a first down and touchdown machine. From 2010 through 2015, Kuhn scored 17 touchdowns and averaged 4.25 yards per touch. He scored more touchdowns than current fullback greats like Kyle Juszczyk, Anthony Sherman, and Marcel Reece ever had in a 6-year period. He was a pivotal piece to Green Bay’s 2010 Super Bowl run. In fact, this was his best season where he touched the ball 99 times and scored 6 touchdowns in the regular season. If there was less than a yard to go for a first down or touchdown, everyone knew the ball was going to Kuhn but nobody could stop it.
He signed a 1-Day contract with the Packers back on March 6th so he could retire with the team that made him famous. Now, he’s giving back to the fans and will be gracing their minds with his knowledge of the game. I think I speak for everyone when I say, we love having you back John Kuhn!
