Boom.. his gaffe last year and then again yesterday was probably enough to seal the deal.

He should have never made the final 53. This kid has contributed heavily to our losing some very big games. I'm glad he's gone.

In Chat, which you all were there, I was saying it's the best time to release a player just before the BYE cuz then you get that extra week to prepare the new kid on the block.

With the injury situation at RB I wouldn't be surprised if they activate Michael Hill from the PS.

I don't think RB Angelo Pease has been signed by anyone. I liked that kid. Seemed to have what it takes, and was kind of surprised he didn't get a better shot.

Micah Hyde for KR/PR.

I agree they should put Hyde back there. He can catch punts and kicks and return them for reasonable yards.

I think they'll add Michael Hill from the PS.

They probably don't want that RB situation like yesterday to happen again.

Chris Rainey works out for the Chiefs, runs in the low 4.3s.... kid was a dynamic open space player for the Gators in college.

He has some legal issues..

Hate to see a guy fail, but Ross just didn't seem to get any better on his decsion making.

I'm also betting The RB Hill will be moved to the 53 man roster.

Seems The packers can NEVER have enough rb's on the roster.

Edit, cross your fingers, there's hope the Packers might sign him back!

GOOD!

the spot will go to either a RB or WR with return ability.

Joe McKnight fits the bill, and was had a workout recently.

but I just can't see us not having 5 WR on the roster,

I don't think Johnson or Dorsey have experience as returners, so they will stay on the PS. Ted may have to go outside Wisconsin to pick up a guy.

Rainey sounds good to me, but so far he has no link to the Packers at all - work out or whatever. McKnight also sounds good, and he did work out. I don't know anything about Hill. What is he - speed back, power runner, shifty?

With a strong chance of both Lacy and Starks coming back for the Detroit game in addition to Franklin, I don't think it is automatic they sign a RB. I still hope they don't use Cobb as the primary returner.

I agree about Cobb but one can't help but wonder if our W/L situation might be different (3-0 perhaps) had we left the duties up to him and done away with Ross from the start. I have to think that the only reason we stuck with Ross was because no one else stepped up and Mike McCarthy did not want to risk Cobb. A little less caution may have resulted in a win or two. Of course it may have resulted in 2 losses anyway along with the loss of a huge part of our offense as well. Its all water under the bridge now though.

I respect your right to have your opinion but that doesn't mean I agree with it or respect you for having it.

The Packers almost have to sign a WR to replace him. Like someone already said, I cannot see the Packers only keeping 4 receivers on the roster.

I don't know, unlike years past, they are not running empty nearly as often. And when they do, it is more TE involvement. Even if they don't get a WR, they still have 7 receiving options, not including RB.

Is Bostick that much of a drop off at WR compared to Ross?
