1) Introduction: Excuse me for sounding like Jon Gruden, but here’s a guy that really needs no introduction. Pat Lee has emerged as a convenient scapegoat for Packer fans ever since his embarrassing performance against the Detroit Lions. Throw in multiple mishaps the past couple seasons, and this is likely the final time AllGreenBayPackers.com will be evaluating Lee.
3) Expectations coming into the season: Lee was expected to be nothing more than a contributor on special teams. While he’s no Jarrett Bush, Lee was expected to step it up on a special teams unit that notoriously stuggled throughout 2010 (Dan Connolly anyone?)
4) Player’s highlights/low-lights: Highlights? Well, he recovered a fumble against the Chiefs in the preseason. That about covers it.
Now there are plenty of low-lights. Let’s start with the game in Detroit on Thanksgiving. Before the famous Ndamukong Suh stomp, Lee was ejected after a punt return when he supposedly took a swing at Aaron Berry of the Lions. It was a classic case of the second person getting caught, but it still stung to see a Packer player.
Lee also made the blooper of the season in the season finale also against the Lions. Lee ran out of the end zone to recover a kickoff at the one yard line and then kneeled in the end zone. POOF! Instant safety and an instant “face palm” for Packer fans.
