Once again I think Lumpster has the heart and the ability and should make the team.

Couple more bubble players I think that were not mentioned in this thread yet.

Danny Lansanah - LB - Kid has been solid in camp and decent on the field, nothing that stands out but has good range seems solid in assignments. He did have a roughing gaffe this preseason.. but more were he hit the QB than how late. I think they might be a bit scared that we won't make it through waivers. The thing going against him is the depth at LB, especially MLB. But no doubt about it, this kid can play at this level. I really like this kid as a player.

Orrin Thompson - T - I think this kid has a roster spot over the disappointment in Giacomini after the pads went on.. we need a true backup at tackle, unless they claim a waiver pickup that they feel is overall better, I think this kid might have a spot on the 53. Not starting material, but played just well enough to stay around, IMO.

Jake Allen - WR - Said it earlier in the TC.. this kid is a dark horse to stick on the roster because of potential and the difficulty they may have in getting him through waivers. Smith has looked good at times to, but kind of disappeared late in camp. I think this kid may stick as the #6 WR.

Greg mentioned him already, but I really like the overall game of Joey Haynos, brings a blockers mentality to the position and has shown enough in the receiving game IMO. I would keep him over Humphrey based on Tory's injury / availability record of the past couple years. Another kid that can play, IMO.

I think someone is going to offer a nice draft pick for Bishop or Hodge so I would anticipate a trade. I really think Bishop and Hodge can be starting caliber linebackers. I think they're better than any middle linebacker in Detroit. Ahead of Paris Lenon and Jordan Dizon in my opinion.

Havner played very well. I don't think Rich Gannon is right though. I don't think he's near a lock. Tracey White was one of the best if not the best special teams coverage player on this team a year ago. You don't overlook that for two rock solid plays by Havner and for the record, I was a big fan of Havner at UCLA so it's not like I'm being picky or anything.

It's a tough choice but one that's good to have.

I sure would hate to lose either one of these linebackers. It is a solid thought porky and we all know how Ted Thompson loves draft picks. As someone quoted before this could be the first year the packers have to cut starting nfl quality players and get nothing in return for them.

I'd like to see Jake Allen as the #6 WR on the team, definitely.

Poppinga and Chillar have shown me absolutely nothing this preseason, especially considering they should be taking turns stepping up, as they're supposedly competing for the starting spot. If Bishop can play that role well, I see no reason not to start him.

I hope they don't trade Hodge. To be honest I think he can be better than Barnett if he stays healthy. We have some outstanding linebckers, no doubt. Why can draft backers and can't find a corner that can play?

The offensive line is still pretty offensive. I think our ace in the hole is our salary cap abundance. We have to hope that some team will get caught with a lack of cap room and will have to cut a really good tackle or guard or both and we can pick them up. We have plenty of cap room. I think we may end up using that cap space for a QB, because I'm betting one of our QB's is going to come down with an injury this week that will put them on IR (wink)

I am more disappointed in the performance and ability to find guards that can consistently play solid ball game in and out than the lack of depth at CB. Williams can flat out play for a youngin.. Blackmon is okay and an I think Lee will develop rapidly..

At guard, we seem to have players step up for a couple of games and then fall on their tail again.. I know youth will bring that, but their lack of overall growth has been disappointing.. they make the same mistakes over and over again.. they start to play tall, lose leverage then their footwork goes into the tank. Sometimes I think I could display better interior footwork with only one of those boys with two. Laughing (I am only half joking.. Laughing )

Honestly though.. it is either poor coaching or guys that are lazy not to be playing with proper leverage.. or maybe they lack the ultimate quality one has to have to play along the oline, fire and heart.

There's no way Hodge is better than Barnett. Barnett's one of the best MLBs in the NFL. Don't be surprised if he's in the Pro Bowl this year.

I agree with you on Chillar, but Poppinga has had a good camp. He sewed up the starting SLB position pretty quickly, and he made a few good plays in the preseason games, which is a few more than Chillar made. I like Bishop a lot, but he's never played SLB--mostly just MLB with some work in the past couple weeks at WLB.

Barnett is all over the field, he is one of the most valuable players on defense. Remember when we played the Seahawks a few years ago on that snowy Monday Night. Nick Barnett missed the game due to a broken hand and Shaun Alexander ran for 200 yards. Coincidence? I think not Smile

Barnett is good, for sure. We seem to have alot of LB's that look good. Thats a good problem to have.
Hopefully we can get the O-line together. If Rodgers has some time, i think he will be real good. And our RB's look good....but we need the O-line to open some holes for the guys. Lumpkin made some good runs with hardly any opening blocks. Imagine what he could do if he got to the second level?
