The response to the 45-yard bomb to Jameson Williams might be even much better. Miller is practically losing his mind on the mic, on the other hand, we see Holmes blow up out of his seat and do some aggressive clapping that might split a walnut.
“Jameson, MAKES THE CATCH!” Miller exclaims. “Touchdown, Detroit Lions! That’s what I’m talking about! That’s what I’m talking about, number nine! Had to re-arrange, turn around, grab the football, and that’s exactly what he did with Ryan Neal draped all over him. I see you, number nine. THAT’S what you’re capable of, young man. Changing the game.”
