    A couple of chances? Dude was a "help me please!" signee. Had no TC, minimal practice time to prep, came in cold off the bench against Phily and played ok against a NYG team in NY where we always struggle.

    I think they keep Myles White.

    You omitted what happened in the Minnesota game. Did I see you quote preseason stats? They mean little.

    Guion might have something to say about how things shape up too.

    Didn't omit, stated that's the game the made Flynn the savior. For his career and our year.

    If PS stats mean nothing then I'm thrilled Flynn is a superstar. You comfortable with a backup that hasn't thrown for 50 yds in a game yet?

    Tolzien has shown a lot of improvement given time to learn the system.

    Regarding Flynn vs. Tolzien: IMO both are different players than they were last season. Obviously Tolzien has had a chance to learn the offense and take advantage of all the off season workouts. Since the offense has changed some since he left, Flynn too is more familiar with it - although obviously he was way ahead of Tolzien last year and probably still is somewhat ahead. Flynn's arm also looks stronger. The way they're using them in preseason tells me it's a real competition (unlike Tretter and Linsley since Linsley took no snaps with the ones). I hope they keep both of them this season and decide on one as backup next season.

    That's a non sequitur.

    I just hope they make the right choice and pick one. Wish we had a Mallett or Cousins but we don't. The sudden injury bug makes me wonder where they will focus the need of the 1 spot. Again, if ARod goes down week one...can either get us to the playoffs. Not a warm fuzzy.

    I'm betting TT grabs a cut guy for the PS since Rettig didn't cut it.

    Just saw that we had a new ILB lining up today.

    No. The question to ask is who is best suited to hold down the fort for a few games...let's say 2-2-1 over a 5 game stretch.

    They've concluded Bradford is not an OLB. Now it's time to figure out if he's worth keeping on the PS as an ILB development project.

    My guess is that with the short look they gave him at ILB: He is gone.

    I'm no particular fan of Capers, but Thompson takes chances with those 4-3 college DE conversions and quite a few of them don't work out. It cuts both ways.

    Converting to hand-out-of-the-dirt and playing-in-space is a difficult hurdle to jump.

    Now, ILB, he's got another major hurdle...3-4 ILBs must be able to cover.

    QB: Rodgers, Tolzien. Flynn gets traded maybe to St. Louis

    RB: Lacey, Kuhn, Starks,

    WR: Jordy, Cobb, Janis, Adams, either Gilett or White

    TE: Bostick, Stonebrunner, Rodgers.

    OL: Bakhtiari, Sitton, Linsley, Lang, Bulaga, Tretter, Sherrod, Taylor

    DL: Jones, Boyd, Pennel, Daniels, Peppers, (I think they move him inside to DE if Perry shows them anything this week), Guion (If he is able to get on the field)

    OLB: Matthews, Neal, Mulumba, Elliot, maybe Perry, and if not Perry then Peppers

    ILB: As much as I want to cut Brad Jones, he stays with Hawk and Barrington at least, and possibly Lattimore

    S: Dix, Hyde, Banjo. I noticed Burnett only played special teams in preseason game #2, this may be telling us something.

    CB: Shields, Heyward, Williams, House, possibly White, cause I think he can play..

    P: Masthay

    K: Crosby

    LS: Goode

    I know it's only 45 but those last 8 spots, at least 3 SHOULD be occupied by guys on IR, and after that the last 5 slots I'm not even sure if Coach and Ted know who's staying yet.

    I'm not telling you your position. I drew an inference from it.

    I don't think I did too badly from three months out.
    Missed to IR or released injurred: Abbredaris, Lyerla, Palmer, Thornton, Franklin, Raji
    Simply missed on: Harper, Perillo, Hubbard, Banjo (three of these were in my last 6 in)
    Four of my last 6 out made the team with another on IR and the 6th traded away (then cut)
