    Jordy led the NFL in TD catches (with 14), the first time a white pass-catcher did so since Gronkowski in 2011 (17 TDs).

    Nelson was also 6th in receiving yards (1,257). Great season for #87!

    Jordy wins NFL CPOY just as I expected. The most amazing thing was I dont think he was even 100% all year especially after rib fracture.

    Still dumbfounding that he didn't get a pro bowl nod over BPPBs (black privilege pro bowlers) Fitzgerald, Bryant, and Baldwin.

    Jordy - 97 receptions, 1,257 yards, 14 TDs
    Fitzgerald - 107 receptions, 1,023 yards, 6 TDs
    Bryant - 50 receptions, 796 yards, 8 TDs
    Baldwin - 94 receptions, 1,128 yards, 7 TDs

    Fantastic season by Jordy after recovering from the ACL and suffering from other ailments in 2016. And we all saw how great the chemistry between him and Rodgers is - Rodgers completed 65.7% of his passes (up 5% on 2015) for 4,428 yards (up 600 yards) and 40 TDs (up 9) with 7 picks (down 1) and a passer rating of 104.2 (up 12)

    FTR Jordy played at Riley county HS one half hour from K State, you think those mopes could have sent someone out there to watch some of his games or that the boosters could have taken their lips of the blacks long enough to say we want this guy.

    Highlight video of Aaron Rodgers' long touchdown passes. Impressive how often Jordy appears.

    Chad Hansen is a wide receiver who was drafted by the Jets this year. Stylistically he compares to Jordy Nelson.

    If given a chance Hansen could do well in the NFL.

    Jordy Nelson, now 32, has apparently been abusing their black 33rd overall pick, CB Kevin King (a guy 10 years younger), during training camp...

    "In a 2-minute, 11-on-11 period that matched starters vs. starters, No. 1 wide receiver Jordy Nelson lined up wide left, with King across from him. Rodgers hit him three times during the drive — on an out for 9 yards, on a slant for 16 yards and on a back-shoulder throw for a 10-yard touchdown — en route to the end zone."

    Another article about King being "humbled" by Nelson/Rodgers during camp...

    Coming off another dazzling season and now 2 years removed from the knee injury that robbed him of his 2015 campaign, the most important white outside receiver in the last 30 years should be atop the league-leaders in receiving once again. He's projected to be a top-10 overall fantasy football pick in most PPR drafts behind Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Odell Beckham, Mike Evans, and AJ Green...

    Best of luck to this former NCAA walk-on from rural Kansas.
