@johnclayiv Good to see Tamme get the love. But @steviejohnson13 does it every week, and gets no love from local media! #why?
He’s right. We’ve neglected to give ex-UK wide out Stevie Johnson a pat on the back for his fast 2010 start with the Buffalo Bills.
And the fact that Jacob Tamme has a double-connection (UK and Boyle County) as opposed to SJ’s singular, but important, Cats connection.
Plus, Johnson plays for the winless Bills. (No excuse.) And Tamme replaced a known star in Dallas Clark, plus catches passes from a fellow named Peyton Manning.
But mainly, blame it on oversight.
So let’s try and make up for it a little.
Johnson leads the Bills with 30 catches for 409 yards and six touchdowns. Two Sundays ago, he caught eight passes for 158 yards and a score in Buffalo’s 37-34 overtime loss to Baltimore. In two seasons, Johnson has 42 catches, eight for touchdowns.
And here’s a nice Stevie “Call Me Steve” Johnson story from John Wawrow of the Canadian Press.
