MMQB: What Is Your Favorite "Penn State In The NFL" Moment?

New, 79 comments

Yes, this was inspired by Garry Gilliam.

If you watched Sunday's NFC Championship game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Green Bay Packers, you witnessed former Penn State TE/OL Garry Gilliam score his first touchdown since high school. The Seahawks lined up for a field goal but ran a beautiful fake and punter Jon Ryan found Gilliam wide open for the Hawks' first touchdown of the game. Here's a video if you haven't seen it:

It was cool! Unless you're a Green Bay fan. In which case, sorry. =/

So this got me thinking: there have been a lot of Penn Staters in the NFL. A whole heck of a lot. There has to have been a play that was cooler than this, right? Let's jump right into the question portion of the post:

What is the coolest moment by a Penn Stater in the NFL? Was it Gilliam's touchdown grab on Sunday, or was it something else? We all agree that Nick is a taint and the Seahawks blow, correct?
