Default This John Kuhn fella!!!!

Since joining SF I`ve been intrigued by a name that keeps cropping up all over the place....Kuhn.
He seems to be something of a legend/folk hero amongst Steeler fans.
I`m a 2 year NFL-Steeler rookie so I just missed out on his tenure with the Steelers,but today I thought I`d look into this enigma.
It seems he kept getting cut and then re-signed by the Steelers and eventually moved on to the Packers and is now with the Cardinals.
I was wondering why he has such cult-status amongst you all.....I`m guessing it`s because he was pretty bad when he was with the Steelers.
The strange thing is,is that although he kept getting cut he also kept getting re-signed and he still keeps getting signed up by other teams.....so he must have something about him.

It is because Steelers fans (diehards) want a big RB that punishes opposing defenses the same way Bettis did it.

And Kuhn was a local college kid (Shippensburg) who came into camp and fit the bill.

He was running over people in camp and in pre-season games. So much so that a few excessive optimists on these boards had him pegged to stick around here and be a force.

Then reality struck and Kuhn was a Steelers bust ... those that came out in support of him were lambasted and he became a running joke on these forums as a friendly reminder for us to temper our enthusiasm for undrafted rookie RB's.

... and now I'm stuck with my Redman stigma eternally ....

Thanks 76 I should have done a search!
Thanks for thatLakelander
I understand that any future RB`s will always have to overcome the Bettis comparison and you never know Redman might `be the one`.

Take everything you have ever heard about Chuck Norris and insert John Kuhns name, and it still wouldn't do Kuhn justice.

When the Boogey Man goes to bed, he checks his closet for John Kuhn!

John Kuhns tears can cure cancer, problem is John Kuhn has never cried!

You get the picture.
