    Packers need to cut 15 to get down to 75 by Tuesday afternoon. Who are your 15? Here's mine:

    QB: Coleman
    RB: Starks (I think he's gone and they'll cut him this week to give him plenty of time to find a team)
    TE: None
    OL: Hughs
    WR: Wilson, White, Hines

    DL: Pena,
    LB: Barrington, Savage
    CB: Means, Nixon, Smith
    S: Fulton, Powell, Richardson

    QB- Harrell
    RB- As a big SuperStarks fan it pains me to have to agree with you unless MM and TT are thinking otherwise.

    The rest I would agree though for some reason I still have mixed feelings on Hines, and Smith.

    #1 WR Alex Gillett #5 WR Omarius Hines, #6 QB Graham Harrell, #7 WR Justin Wilson all cut today. Have to think they're cutting in numerical order.

    Good call. I pretty much flipped a coin on it and went with Coleman because he's always been further down the depth chart. Wouldn't be surprised if they only keep Young to make room for another player they want to keep elsewhere.

    Pease surprised me, but I guess it really shouldn't have. He wasn't getting carries.

    I think that's a fair assumption.

    Don't be shocked if Pease pops back up on Practice squad...I just have a hunch we may have released him to give him an op on another squad since we didn't have room, but the early praise for this kid makes me think if he's still there unsigned he'll be on our practice squad.

    If we go with 4 tailbacks, I doubt it. If we go with 3 and somebody gets hurt, maybe.

    I can agree with that. I bet we go with 4 though...so perhaps my hunch never flourishes...we shall see.

    I kinda thought that Gillett might have been kept longer to try to put him on the PS. He seems like a pretty big and athletic guy who could be a good special teamer and a good blocking wideout who may turn into something useful down the road.
