    I'd be happy for Ferguson if he has a successful career elsewhere, even if it's there. He's a good guy, and I don't understand why folks were so harsh to him on the forum.

    Yes, he should have been cut last year, not this year. That's not my point though.

    However, I'd be very happy if we still had Sharper. He's pretty good in Madden '08.

    I thought I heard that Sharper was close to being cut for salary cap reasons.

    There will be a day when Sharper regrets signing with the Queens. He will never be thought of as one of the Packer greats because of not only signing withe the Queens but for what he has said about the Packers. he will never be thought of as a Packer.

    Funny, I thought he would not be thought of as a great Packer because of 4th and 26, and Owens last second catch in a playoff game. I know, I know you can't blame those plays on Darlene, but he strutted like a marquee player. And a marquee player does not let those plays happen.

    You'll be in the minority on that one, I'm sure.

    give me Collins and Bibgby\Rouse over Darren "Almost" Sharper

    He almost has interceptions and good plays. Almost.

    Minnesota Vikings safety Darren Sharper (42) avoids the attempted tackle by New York Jets quarterback Chad Pennington as Sharper returns an interception for a 40-yard touchdown during first quarter NFL pre-season football Friday night, Aug. 17, 2007, at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

    Sharper has a way of showing up when it matters least (i.e., a preseason game, or late in the 4th quarter during a blow-out). He is the king of meaningless turnovers. Good riddance.

    Come on guys, Sharper was a decent player in his days here... he made his share of big plays. Do we forget the pick in the Viking game at Lambeau in the freezing cold late in the game...

    Did his mouth ramble on a little too much in talking trash back to the Packers... yes, yes it did. But he was released by us without getting beat out on the field... he was released because he was deemed not worth the contract he had signed with us. It was a bang to his pride I am sure...

    But that doesn't take away that he was a good player for us in his days here. I certainly would take him over Manuel in a beat of my Green and Gold heart.

    Our D turned Ferg in to a #5-6 receiver. Ferg made Hawkins look like a #6-7 DB. Says alot about the Vikes this year !
    Ferg is a good guy though. No hard feelings at all.

    For good lord almighty... Sharper sucked.

    His best play ever was in a pre-season game against the cardinals, maybe four years ago. He delivered a great hit post catch. And it was typical Darren, big, meaningless play.

    He never got my love as a packer and sure don't miss him, and yes, he looks great in purple.
