I don't believe the Packers care about excuses as to why they didn't sign a Free Agent and I for one am pleased they don't care to consider the fans opinions/thoughts when leading the professional franchise of the Green Bay Packers.

No elephant, just a bunch of inpatient fans, which I think is great!


I guess I should have added a little sarcasm alert on my last statement, and sorry I don't know the pecking order when it comes to who negotiates contract extensions.

I could care less if The Packers sign any FA's, but the fact remains, this year FA is a little different, there are still quality players available.

Looks like all the big money has been spent, so there very well could be a player available at a decent price that could help The Packers, but until Rodgers and Mathews get their deals done, it makes it difficult to go after anybody.

The ? was should Packers sign RT Eric Winston, different opinions here, I don't have a clue whether he could help, so I say no.

Hmm, given that the Chiefs went 2-14 last year, maybe they didn't have the ball much on offense? I'm thinking back to 2006 when GB went 4-12 and were good statistically against giving up passing yards. Of course, that's because opposing teams were busy milking the clock. d'oh!

I should point out too most of those thinks I posted were from Houston Texan sites or message boards and Winston played there for six years.

All in all, he isn't better than Bulaga, doesn't seem like a huge upgrade over Newhouse and seems like a more expensive, older version of Barclay who already hit his ceiling.

Hey muck,

I don't have anything invested in any of this, other than my stock. If Ted thinks it is a good call, fine. Personally, I don't think he is looking this direction, and will be sticking with what he has at LT.
