    I think nobody´s getting faster by gaining weight, doesn´t matter if the added weight consists of muscles only.

    It does though. Let's not go through a science class about force and matter on a football forum though. Agree to disagree. ;)

    Also, I suspect the staff doesn't trust Franklin to hold onto the football.

    Because of his rookie year? So you think montee ball is going to be out of the picture in Denver?

    Don´t think that´s an issue at the moment. They´d better stop calling such stupid plays to start with.

    Yeah, what the hell would you do running straight into 300 pound lineman when you're the size of franklin? That was a play calling mistake from the start. I didn't blame that loss on franklin whatsoever. He was one of the biggest reasons we were in the position to win anyway.

    Montee didn't fumble in college. Franklin had issues holding onto the ball at Cal.

    I don't have any inside information. I'm just speculating. For all the Franklin love around here, the staff has seemed apprehensive about giving him touches after coughing it up against the Bengals...

    While Franklin had issues holding on to the ball during the first three season at UCLA he only fumbled once in 282 carries during his senior year.

    If a RB can't be expected to hold onto the ball when running into 300 pound linemen, then I wouldn't trust him either.

    You and WIMM seem interested in resurrecting an old debate concerning the play call at the end of last year's Cincy game. Seems like we should keep this discussion on track concerning the staff's confidence in our stable of RBs.

    Not surprising. Spent the most on our highest need. I read about perillo and watched an interview. I like the kid, just not as a packer, or an nfl player in general. He just doesn't have the right size or skills to make it. Which explains the lowest signing bonus.

    After reading it earlier today I´m intrigued by OLB Jayrone Elliott and NT Mike Pennel as well.

    The Packers haven´t signed DE Denico Autry after all as he didn´t pass the physical because of some minor injuries.

    A little trivia for you all (or y'all if you're living south of the line). Below are the UDFAs that have made the 53-man coming out of camp the past few years:

    2009: Evan Dietrich-Smith
    2010: Nick McDonald, Sam Shields, Frank Zombo
    2011: MD Jennings, Jamari Lattimore, Vic So'oto
    2012: Dezman Moses, Don Barclay, Sean Richardson
    2013: Andy Mulumba, Lane Taylor, Chris Banjo, Jarrett Boykin -- honorable mention to Myles White and Jake Stoneburner for being brought up from the practice squad

    That's pretty good production out of what I call the secondary draft.

    Boykin made the team as an UDFA in 2012.

    Rettig is a pretty good pickup. I've watched him play, he was also a 4 year starter at BC so that's good to have. I thought we also brought in a QB for a look from Memphis by the name of Jacob Karam.

    Dez Moses was a 7th, not a UDFA

    I don´t think Rettig is anything more than a camp body as McCarthy prefers to have four QB in camp. He´s completed only 55.2% of his passes during his college career, throwing 52 TDs with 39 INTs. Karam was invited to tryout at this week´s rookie camp, but hasn´t been signed to the roster so far.

    Moses went undrafted in 2012.

    Is there any chance that Justin Perillo, Tight End out of Maine, makes our roster?

    There's always a chance, but it's a longshot.

    He's an intriguing one. 6'6" 257 outside linebacker who plays the run well and has the speed to cover tight ends. Don't know if he'd be able to play the middle, but imagine trying to throw down the middle over him...
