    Having watch Boeritter in KC for the past few years...he is the real deal.
    He was hurt last year.
    His rookie year he had some big catches...for TDs...He is worth the cash...
    He is a solid posession or 3rd down receiver.

    Was expecting Bo' to show better before now, but there's still time left for him to get it together. He knows this is it.

    He might just feel too much pressure right now. Maybe he will settle down and start making plays. If he wants to keep his job, he will.

    Exactly. Popular wisdom is ya can't tell crud from preseason. Bs. Ya can see who plays better beyond regular practice.

    I liked the signing initially because I thought he would be that possession type receiver that Favre could make some "safer" throws to. I'm still not sure if he'll develop into that role because of the dropsies he's been reported to having in camp. In fact, if his hands don't get a little better, he may not make the roster.

    You're right though...he may surprise us and I hope so as well.

    yeah and I think he would be like Terrence Murphy last year. By that I mean not the star role but like ND said safe passes (Murphy without the Injury I mean)

    I think either Boerigter or Gardner will be released come final roster cut down.

    Boerigter - 3rd string potential

    Gardner - 2 string potential (possible first for a sucky team)

    I guess what I dislike about him comes from the reports that he's the only WR that's "walking" around, not showing any enthusiasm apparently. I don't understand it. He's got to know his head is on the line...that if he doesn't start impressing the coaches he's history. But then, Hunt and Gravy didn't seem to realize that their laid-back attitude would cost them. Hell, Hunt was surprised when he was cut. This IS the big-leagues, Bo!

    cyoung,

    You're joking about Hunt right? That lazy SOB should have been cut before he did and all he did was walk his lazy arse straight to the bank...I'm glad he's gone.

    Jackson was pretty good but he was aging and didn't want too do the work. He just wanted to show up for his paycheck's on Sunday.

    Hunt well they're is a reason why nobody has picked him up. He just wasn't very good after he got his contract.

    Boerigter was kind of a longshot anyway. If he couldn't make it in Kansas City, where he had a high-powered offense that was in need of better receivers, he won't be able to make it anywhere unless he gets a lot better. And if he can't lock down that #3 spot, he will not be worth keeping. Thompson will go with younger guys for the #4 and #5 WR spots.

    I think they keep Bo on potential, and go with 6 WRs.

    (In no particular order)
    1. Driver
    2. Ferggy
    3. Boerigter
    4. Gardner
    5. Jennings
    6. Rodgers (mainly for KRs)

    I really don't think that Boerigter and Gardner are both going to stick, unless one or more of the others are injured. I've heard that a couple of the other young guys (I don't know their names yet) are showing some potential, and possibly one of them will make the roster. I'm hoping one of them stands out in training camp.

    It seems more likely to me that an extra roster spot will be used for the running backs rather than the receivers.

    3 Gardner
    4 Jennings
