    Wow.
    Navies getting cut really surprises me too. I think he was the weakest LBer of the top 4 though. I guess this pretty much means Manning is sticking, which is good IMHO. Now we should move him to the middle. :wink: I still expect Poppinga to get a phantom injury before all is said and done so we can stash him on IR and try again next year.

    Im surprised by the Navies and Herrion cuts. With Diggs out i thought Navies would be the starter for him but i guess not and also i thought Herrion was doing well enough to make back up guard.

    I am actually surprised that this is all they cut. After that game on Friday night, they could have easily cut another twenty players.

    Well, they still need a bunch of camp fodder to ast the rest of the week. :D

    Besides, this first round of cuts is always strategic. We'll most certainly re-sign some of these guys to the PS eventually. By cutting them in the first round they kind of get lost in the shuffle. We'll most certainly see guys like Herrion and Dendy in the future.

    I wrote earlier this week that I didn't think Navies was going to be kept. I think the Packers are being kind of loyal by cutting him this early so he catch on with another team. Of course, this is good news for Thompson, Lenon and Manning and maybe Brady P.

    Herrion has been toyed with by the Packers for the last year or even 2 years. They've signed and released him so many times. It must get frustrating to be a guy like that. Always getting signed and cut. Sounds stressful not knowing if you will have a job.

    It makes me wonder why guys like that keep going back.

    Below were a few comments from TT and Sherman about a few of the roster cuts.
    TT doesn't seem too concerned about the play of Whitticker. Sherman said Whitticker hasn't practiced much against the 3-4 defense.

    Sherman said Naives didn't fit Bates scheme.

    The team has released:

    • 1. linebacker -- Hannibal Navies
      2. guard -- Matt O'Dwyer
      3. wide receiver -- Vince Butler
      4. cornerback -- Patrick Dendy
      5. linebacker -- Jeremiah Garrison
      6. guard/tackle -- Atlas Herrion
      7. tight end -- Tory Humphrey
      8. running back -- Derrick Johnese
      9. defensive tackle -- A.J. Lindsay
      10. wide receiver -- Chad Lucas
      11. defensive tackle -- Quintene Newhouse
    I'd agree that for the most part I really did think they'd keep Hannibal.
    Certainly, he'll find work somewhere.. He's been in the League long enough to become a sticker amongst the others floating around in FA.

    Who wants to guess about the next round of cuts after this Thursday nite?

    I really didn't see any real surprises in any of the players that were cut. Matt O'Dwyer did not show anything at camp to justify him making the roster. The closest to any surprise was Navies but not really. Poppinga, Manning, & Thompson had much better training camps and more upside than Navies.

    If 1 other team thought him worthwhile he would have been picked up some time during the last 2 years. After being cut so many times he wouldn't have had to show loyalty to GB.

    Anyone got an inside scoop on who the 2 (at least) other cuts were today?

    I think those cuts are due for tomorrow.
