Holliday Gives Boost to Broncos
Since the Broncos signed wide receiver Trindon Holliday on Oct. 11, the 5-foot-5 return man has given the team exactly he was brought in for.
His contributions go well beyond his touchdown returns in back-to-back weeks against Cincinnati and Carolina. Dating back to Week 6, when he became a Bronco, Holliday leads the NFL with a 37.4 kick return average and ranks second in the NFL with a 13.0 punt return average.
When the Broncos acquired Holliday, they were 2-3. Since then, they are 7-0. With his 5-0 start as a Houston Texan before being let go, he is the only 12-0 player in the league.
Hey, remember when Josh McDaniels cut Brett Kern during a bye week? And remember when the Broncos were 6-0? And hey, do you remember when McDaniels replaced Kern with Mitch Berger (and fries)? Finally, remember at the time, I tried rationalizing and defending the move? Yeah, me too. After the Broncos tanked, the move became known as the Curse of Brett Kern.
Well, that curse can kiss its ass good bye. Trindon Holliday has restored the Broncos' karmic balance.
Now, about that Matt Prater voodoo doll...
