    Did not feel I needed to qualify a statement that was in response to a post that, to me, appeared to be rather generic in nature no matter what thread I saw it in.

    I am tired of hearing about "god's gift" Quarless. I have never seen him do anything noteworthy.

    I've never seen him fight for extra yards. Plus coming off injury no way he was the athlete he once was (which wasn't much to begin with)

    If you aren't in practice every day you don't really know what a guy has to offer that has had little playing time behind someone else.

    I'm cool with letting him go...5 tight ends is way too much.
    Let Kuhn go too ... get a full on attacking run blocking mauler - massive fullback.
    Taylor is basically a skinny Crabtree - DJ and Quarless are bodies, I'm sure Rodgers can make those guys the way he made Spencer Havner/Donald Lee/Tom Crabtree/etc. - yadda.

    Plus, Tom was near 30 - why not clear some space and get young and a shot at a compensatory draft pick.

    I fixed it for you, no worries. Not to elaborate on a play of words but I actually hope Crabtree does "sing" with the Bucs. I wish him nothing but the best. I'm not one to question T.T. but this is something I'm not so sure of. We have Finley but I always thought Crabtree made a solid backup.

    Now the Packers only have four or five tight ends on the roster!

    Crabtree signed with Tampa for 2 years / $1.6 mil. That's $115,000 over the vet minimum.

    Finley haters are going apoplectic.

    Fear not, Taylor will likely prove to be his equal or better.

    He couldn't stay healthy. TT will find a vet minimum equivalent in wave 9 of FA.

    The SB year "Combo" (Walden/Zombo) is now in the history books (tiny footnote, page 372).

    I like Crabtree a lot, but players like him are a dime a dozen. He's a solid player on special teams, but not to the point where you pay extra to keep him.

    We're already TE heavy. I don't want to go into another year feeling obligated to keep 5 TE's again.

    I agree Taylor can take over Crabtree’s role. Right now the Packers have five TEs on the roster: Jermichael Finley, Andrew Quarless, Ryan Taylor, DJ Williams, and Brandon Bostick.

    Because he's not a "crappy" kicker. He's a good kicker that had a major slump for 2 months.

    Walden does NOT belong in that sentence. He's a woman beater and good riddance.

    Crosby does not rank close to the top of kickers for his career. Still waiting for him to make a meaningful kick.

    Totally agree with Walden comment. While Ted hasn't signed anyone during this free agency period getting rid of Walden, Jones, and Zombo is a huge plus.

    OJ wasn't convicted either.

    Just because something happened behind closed doors that caused his girlfriend to change her story (probably involving $$$) doesn't mean I have to be naive about what likely happened.

    Every kick in a close game is meaningful.

    Okay, how about if I say good riddance to Erik Walden because he had highly questionable character.

    And he's missed a helluva lot of them.
