Today on his show Mike Greenberg was effusive about Sam. Mike's been in the Silver Platter bandwagon all along and he's certainly not jumping off now!
On a similar note, during their "hot takes" section one of his co-hosts picked the Panthers to advance to the playoffs AND win a game!
It wouldn't make me cry to see Deonte get some snaps this week.
Obviously he isn't ready to start, and his position flexibility is non-existent. However, this might be the best chance he has this year: get on the bench when someone is injured and grabbing a few snaps here or there. Maybe he turns some heads in those reps, best case scenario.
