Tramon Williams’ Playoff Pick-Six Is The Perfect Way to Celebrate His Career
Tramon Williams announced his retirement on his 38th birthday yesterday. It is fitting that Williams did on that day and many around Green Bay celebrated his career. From everything you read from the media crew in Green Bay, Williams was the man. He seemed like a great dude to be around whether it was a journalist or teammate. There is no doubt in my mind that Williams will find his way to the Packers’ Hall of Fame. He had many great plays as a Packer, but none will be greater than the pick-six against Atlanta in the Divisional Round. Do you want to know when things started to feel real for the Packers’ Super Bowl run? This very play.
I remember watching it in my parents’ basement and running to Twitter on my computer to see what the reaction was at halftime. At the time, no one could believe that Atlanta would try to pass the ball in that situation. We would come to learn a lot about Dan Quinn and the Falcons through the years. Williams had a knack for the football and made big play after big play. He came from nothing being undrafted in 2006 and becoming one of the top corners for the Packers. It is one of the best Ted Thompson gems of all-time.
