    The O Line takes a long time to jell. Change is not good unless it is a proven standout who will help in the Jelling itself. Niether of these two are that answer so it is best to stick with what we have, give them time, and address the issue next year in F.A. and the draft.

    Actually a good idea DePack.

    The Packers could advertise themselves as an open minded team who hired the first openly gay player in the NFL.

    Being a Lesbian she would not be a threat to anyone in the shower, and the teams revenue from merchandise would sky-rocket in the San Fran and New Orleans markets.

    Shrewd business move!

    I like it DePack.

    Yes look at them for depth. They fit the scheme and have played in it in Denver. At least look at them and if you think they're better than what you got, bring them in and let some guys go. I think they should cut Whitticker for sure and bring one of these guys in.

    I can't imagine how they could be much worse than what we've got. Bring them in.

    No. These guys were cut because they're not any good. They are, in fact, worse than what we have.
