Drew a holding penalty and got a sack back-to-back.

Agreed. He has shown enough to make the 53 if you ask me. Granted he hasn't been playing against starters the whole time, but he has made a few linemen look like clowns. He made good with his playing time, and that is exactly what he needed to do.

I tip my hat to Jayrone - keep at it!

I agree but it does go a long way to explaining why it seems the Packers have had so many preseason wonders who turn out to be not so wonderful when the real game begin. I'm sure every team goes through it but how many times have we seen guys look great in the preseason be they WRs, LBs, DL, DBs or whatever and we say "watch out for this guy" only to have it turn into "what the heck happened to that guy"

All these comments about Elliot doing what he had to do and not having a choice about who he went up against and making the best of his situation are 100% true. He may be one of the very few guys who actually played himself onto the team (assuming his TC and practices didn't totally suck) and seeing what he did is reason to get excited. You still have to temper that excitement with the knowledge that even though he did do all he could do and made the most of his chances etc. etc. he did do it against many guys that will probably be looking for work in a couple of days.
