Andy Mulumba
Chris Banjo
Johnny Jolly
Sam Barrington
Brandon Bostick

Every one of these players showed enormous potential throughout TC. Mulumba could develop into a very, very special pass rusher. Barrington looks to have the "it" factor in knowing where to be and to finish plays. Bostick seems to have all the tools to be a complete TE. Banjo beats the odds nearly every time to play bigger than his 6-0 207. And, Johnny Jolly, returning to form a better man and player.

All of these guys have the intangibles we all want on our team. Instincts and play making ability that shows up on the field.

Great to see.

Disappointed in Alex Green, Kevin Dorsey, Charles Johnson, EDS, Van Roten, DJ Williams, BJ Coleman.

Guys who don't deserve it: Kuhn, EDS, GVR, Mason Crosby. AJ Hawk?

and the negativity begins!!!

RollEyes RollEyes RollEyes

Thankfully Ted, Mike and company are in charge, of analyzing talent not you.

Thankfully your opinon is yours and nobody has to or hardley ever agrees with you.

Amazing how you can judge players before they have taken one snap of "real" football.

Don;t worry, only a week away until you can start spewing your negativity all over this forum as players you have deemed"undeserving" make a mistake or 2.

So happy for Jolly. Talk about the odds being against you and it seems he has not missed a beat yet hasn't been in football shape in a years. Hope this guy stays clean as right now he can be an inspiration to many out there that our struggling with addiction issues.

I partially agree. Hawk (as well as B. Jones) would be better replaced by any two of the ILBs kept and cut, but of course, it wouldn't happen. Van Roten wasn't much, but neither were any of the other backup O Linemen. I would have been fine with cutting Kuhn, but I can grudgingly see that in keeping him one more year also.

I'm looking for a good, maybe great year from Crosby, and I think EDS is at least decent in an O Line where decency doesn't extend much beyond Sitton (the jury is still out on Bakhtiari).

BTW, you had EDS and GVR in both groups - or is there a different GVR than Van Roten hahahaha.

give the young ILBers a year or two to learn the NFL and they will be the starters.

I am not sure who I am most pleased with making this team. it could be guys like Samwise Barrington or Nate Palmer bevaue i know a little of their back stories and it is hard for any 6-7th round picks to make it in the NFL especially on a team that is as talented as GB. Perhaps it is Jolly because of all the he as come through. It doesn't happen very often that a guy self destructs his career and then digs himself out of that hole. Careers are not that long and to miss out on 3 of his most productive years was a huge blow. There are many who would have packed it in and gave up.

The o line and the running game will be a work in progress and we will need to be patient. I like our 53, I think some of the youth pushes guys to play better for fear of being replaced. that is why Van Roten was particularly disappointing; he probably did the least of the guys kept with his opportunities but he fits the look and attributes you want for your back up center. He still needs more time to develop though...

If only you hadn't mentioned Hawk - you wouldn't have incurred the wrath of Mr. Ohio! RollEyes

I wish I knew Buckeye's address, I'd mail him the Hawk jersey I foolishly purchased his rookie season.

Zero2Cool: thank ya sir
uffda udfa: Best looking site out there!
Zero2Cool: You welcome!
Cheesey: THANK YOU again for all you do.
Cheesey: You do all the work, while some think they don't have to honor your few rules.
Cheesey: Kevin, you KNOW how much I appreciate this site.
uffda udfa: Nope. Too much pressure for them.
Zero2Cool: NFL MVP's don't seem to win the Super Bowl the same year, do they?
Zero2Cool: Panthers played uninspired and predictable, actually (and sadly) reminded me of the Packers. :(
Zero2Cool: Thanks 68md, good to know some notice and appreciate.
Zero2Cool: Holding a different or less than popular view is perfectly fine. You fail to understand this even though I repeatedly tell you. It's annoyin
uffda udfa: Good night, Smokey.
Smokey: good night uffda.
uffda udfa: Wonder how Colts fans feel, and Mr. Irsay?
uffda udfa: Today, anyway.
Smokey: DEFENSE DOES WIN CHAMPIONSHIPS TT !
uffda udfa: Carolina will never be back to a SB under Cam Newton.
uffda udfa: Denver D just dominated the current MVP and the former this year.
uffda udfa: Cam for LVP in the SB. No character.
uffda udfa: Newton is a wuss. MVP? LOL.
uffda udfa: #VonFire
uffda udfa: People who have passion and expectations aren't A words. Accepting less than the best doesn't make you not one either.
uffda udfa: Sorry, Kevin...maybe you called Dakota an A word and not me? Had to be one of us.
uffda udfa: Marshawn Lynch announced his retirement in a cool way via twitter. What could've been in Green Bay, Marshawn!
uffda udfa: It's okay... you called me the "A" word. All because I don't tickle the ears. I get it.
uffda udfa: So someone like Buck deserves privileges because he's a better fan than me due to his flattering opinions?
68md: wet blanket ? He works his ass off to keep the place going for you ?
Smokey: Zero, Why are you such a wet blanket host ? A real SB "Chat" should have been a priority for this site. Wet Blanket strikes again.
Zero2Cool: BTW, I'm not saying you're an asshole. I'm stating a fact, that's all.
Zero2Cool: You don't get it. You confuse right and privilege. Assholes don't deserve privileges. Get it, got it, good.
uffda udfa: Talib playing a Burfict half so far.
uffda udfa: You have an R rated section on a Packers board. I think moving the guys you really don't want rocking the boat to their own forum is a great
uffda udfa: I think the same was likely said at KFAN when it was suggested they have a Packers show. I believe they still have it. I used to produce it
Zero2Cool: Seriously think what you're asking and do so before asking. Unreal.
uffda udfa: Aaron walking gingerly in that SB MVP introduction thing.
