    No... its not. Its a sign of ineptness at this level. When you have a pressing need, you do what it takes to fill it. I am not judging TT on the last week, I am judging on the last 5 years. His M.O. is to sit on his hands and see how things play out.

    While all of you are berating fans who are sick of seeing the same thing each year, your doing the same, just on the other side of the fence. How long are you going to remain buried head deep in the sand? How many non moves can we make before you have had enough? If ARod was out for the season, would you be thumbs up happy go lucky with Flynn as our new long term starter? What if Woodson went down this season as well? Cool with Tramon and Pat Lee, or god forbid, Jarett Bush?

    At what point do we need to get to when we think about panicking, instead of just toting the TT line of "nothing to see here, keep moving, everythings fine..."

    When we lose 5 starters for the season? Maybe 10? How about 12?

    Atari Bigby/ Will Blackmon
    Al Harris
    Ryan Grant
    Justin Harrell (or Johnny Jolly, your pick)
    Morgan Burnett
    Nick Barnett
    JerMichael Finley
    All those on the PUP or IR. 9 starters. Now We look forward to losing Rodgers, and Matthews for at least a game.

    So... at what point should I and the rest of us begin to get concerned with the current affairs of the team Sparta? You seem to have all the answers. Explain why we SHOULD NOT be concerned.

    See thats the thing. You dont have a solution. Neither does TT. Or MM.

    Trade a 2nd or 3rd Pick to the Skins for Fred Davis. Guy can catch, and is okay at blocking, but because of the number of 3 WR sets the Skins run guy hardly ever sees the field except to spell Cooley. Then put Finley on IR. As for RB? No idea, LB No Idea. That assumes they aren't happy with QUarless and Lee is perhaps hurt worse than expected. When is the trade deadline anyways?

    What pressing need did we have to start the season? Last season Ted brought in two free agents in Mark Tauscher and Chad Clifton to help with our line. He addressed the need last season, and guess what? We played better! WOW!

    This season he kept them both, and knowing we needed talent to eventually replace them, he signed Bryan Bulaga. So again, he addressed the pressing need. And I still maintain that Bulaga has done pretty well with the reps he's been given. Sure, he made some rookie mistakes, but that's what happens when you're a first time starter in the NFL.

    Well, if something happened to Rodgers and he was lost for the year, our season would more than likely be done anyway. Might as well get the rookie some reps, it's what he's being trained for, and they all gotta start somewhere. If you remember, Aaron Rodgers got the chance to prove to everyone he was ready only by filling in for an injured Brett Favre in the Dallas game. Besides, which veteran QB would you bring in to be the starter?

    Yeah, and neither do you. Your way is ludicrous on so many levels. Do you think singing a bunch of guys off the street that no one else wants either are gonna plug all the holes we have due to injury? Are we just supposed to trade away our entire draft to bring in a coupla guys to replace guys due to injury?

    If I had a choice between pissing away future draft picks for temporary fixes while we wait for guys to get healthy vs. temporarily going to our backups who have been practicing in our system and know the plays, I'll go with our backups every time. No, it's not a perfect solution, but it's a hell of a lot better than trading away our future for a guy that's probably gonna take a couple weeks to make an impact anyway.

    Trade deadline is next Tuesday.

    I think they're gonna wait on Finley to see how we do and if we have a shot at the playoffs. In the mean time, they're pretty high on Quarless and Donald Lee practiced today. We also have Crabtree and I read Havner was cut by the Lions. We'll find out tomorrow if anyone claimed him off waivers. Wouldn't be surprised if Minnesota put in a claim for him, since they're douchebags like that.
