This was kind of painful to watch at moments. How many times does the guy have to say the same thing?

Glad he's back and looking forward to seeing him play.

Damn, everyone of those reporters could have had their soundbite after he answered the first question.
I liked what he said about The Packers having his back last year, he will have theirs this year.

NOW LEAVE HIM THE HELL ALONE SO HE CAN BECOME A SUPERSTAR!

I hate reporters. If my kid came up to me and asked "Dad, I want to be a reporter or a serial killer which would you prefer" I'd have a hard time answering that question. I'd probably encourage the reporter track unless they wanted to be a serial killer who killed reporters. Then I'd probably push the serial killer route.

Seems like he has his head together and is ready to rock and roll.
Good for him!
Glad he did what was necessary to get to this point. It would have been easy to turn to drugs and alcohol to numb the pain. He did it the right way.

Does any body remember if he slid in the draft last year or did he go about where he was pegged?

According the bleacher report, he was projected in the 4th round.

Sounds like a great guy.

I don't mind the reporters ragging on about his year off. I can't imagine he hasn't been prepared for that by the Packers PR-team. Everyone saw this coming. I'm almost certain they evaluated him mentally before letting the press do their thing.

It's nice to see them asking about something that might actually further a good cause for a change.

This is a guy who plays the manliest sport there is at one of the manliest, gritty positions on the field. If he can open up about mental health like that, anyone can. Let them write tons of articles about it and get it out in the spotlight if both he can the Packers think he can carry it. I'd rather read about this than Antonio Brown's bullshit.

Great point.

I think men having the courage to shine light on the issue is a good thing. I also think the Michael Phelps ads for mental health are excellent.

Its hard not to root for the kid...I really hope he is a success in life and for the Packers

That's a very good way to look at it but I think it says far more about Cole and even the people who prepared him than it does about the reporters. How many times does a person need to answer the same question.

I do think he handled it very well and I can't wait to see how performs on the field. I'm just afraid his year off will become the focal point of future interviews and will be brought up whenever he faces the media. "you got off to a slow start this season, do you think the year off affected you?" "You got off to a great start, how much of that do you attribute to your taking a year off?" "my lawn has brown patches do you think it has anything to do with your year off?" Maybe I'm wrong and he has put an end to it but I'm not optimistic.

That's very true. Best situation would've been one question, him answering he's doing alright now and then let bygones be bygones. That'll never happen, though.

I'll rephrase. The manliest real sport. Bull riding is one step above volcano surfing and limbo skating.

I'm high on Madison. Pretty sure he can play both positions. Let's see what he's got.

If he doesn’t do well, then the questions will come “is it because of his mental health?”
Remember Favre’s admitting about his drug addiction? How much he had to put up with from the media and rival fans? Only his winning the super bowl shut everyone up.
Had he tanked, you can bet it would have gone on and on.

I expected Cheesey to come back with, "he has all his chickens in order, but does he have all his ducks in a row".😁

Nope, because even though each reporter recrafted their same question over and over and over again to get a quote, they couldn't. That is the part of reporting I do not like, regardless of topic.
