    I just saw where the Bills cut him. I always liked the guy.
    Do you think we should try to sign him?
    (I didn't see this anywhere on here, so if someone posted already I'm sorry!)

    I like Nall. Just not sure we need him. I hope he gets a chance to play somewhere though. He's a good guy.

    Nope but some interesting high draft picks got cut this weekend. Quniton Moses could help out at LBer. Antonio Pittman might be an upgrade over Wynn. TE Garrett Mills

    He's a decent QB. They didn't really even give him a chance at Buffalo. He got about 0 playing time.

    He signed a big contract ( or at least for him it was big_ to come and take over the starting spot, and he never could

    You guys know WHY he got 0 playtime in Buffalo right?

    I don't get your guys' stupid astonishment with this guy and Ingle Martin. They're both garbage.

    He would be a waste of a roster spot.

    Nall did have some good moments for the Packers, but was inconsistent. I don't think Martin even had any good moments. Maybe a lot of fans wanted Rodgers to fail, so they tried to believe these unheralded QB's were better than him. I never bought it, either.

    At best Craig Nall is a backup, I saw him many times in last training camp he participated here in Green Bay Believe me there were reasons why the Packers let him go to Buffalo . And why he is not the starting QB for the Bills. Packer GM Ted Thompson (no GM is perfect) has make some mistakes in 2005. 2006 thus far in 2007., not stopping Craig Nall from going to Buffalo was not one of them. Ingal Martin is just starting his second year in NFL and Craig Nall has been around a lot longer. . A comparison to both of their careers at this point would be unfair to Martin

    I've seen a lot of NFL Qbs in the many years, I have been watching Green Bay Packer & NFL football (over 60 years) I would never say never .but I would say chances are slim for either of them to make it as a starter in the NFL. Age is quickly becoming a issue for Craig Nall

    I would say there is absolutely no chance due to the fact that Nall was here under Sherman. He has no connection to MM.

    If we can get ingle or paul on the practice squad, i think we avoid getting a 3rd string qb all together.

    Yeah so unless Favre or Rodgers go down sometime in the next week, I wouldn't waste my time on Nall.

    Done. Thompson is on PS and we have only 2 QBs, which methinks is a GOOD thing. With the Iron Man as our starting QB, we only need 2 QBs. Keep the spot open for something else, I say.

    Besides, Holiday can be our emergency 3rd QB.

    If the packers are down to their 3rd Quarterback, they're probably already out of the game anyways so I really have no problem with 2 QB's on the roster.

    I don't see why everyone's down on Craig Nall. He was a decent backup in '04. He hasn't played in regular season besides with the Packers.

    Fyi, here's his career stats:
    +---------------------------------------+-----------------+
    | Passing | Rushing |
    +----------+-----+---------------------------------------+-----------------+
    | Year TM | G | Comp Att PCT YD Y/A TD INT | Att Yards TD |
    +----------+-----+---------------------------------------+-----------------+
    | 2004 gnb | 6 | 23 33 69.7 314 9.5 4 0 | 3 7 0 |
    | 2005 gnb | 1 | 0 0 0.0 0 0.0 0 0 | 0 0 0 |
    | 2006 buf | 2 | 0 0 0.0 0 0.0 0 0 | 0 0 0 |
    +----------+-----+---------------------------------------+-----------------+
    | TOTAL | 9 | 23 33 69.7 314 9.5 4 0 | 3 7 0 |
    +----------+-----+---------------------------------------+-----------------+

    I still prefer to have 2 QBs, to free up space elsewhere. And Porky is right, if we're down to our 3rd QB, we already lost the game anyways. But we have a QB with a history of playing through anything, and a 2nd string QB with a chip on his shoulder (which is a GOOD thing) and something to prove.

    I'm just saying I liked Nall when I saw him in '04.

    I liked Nall when we had him but I don't think we need to pick him up now.
    Hopefully for him he will land somewhere with a chance to play.
