    We have a guy named Carlyle...thats awesome. When in a losing season, funny names are one of the only things that can make you smile, like taco wallace.

    I'm glad. I didn't like Francies. Something about watching him just didn't seem right.

    Kind of like Rodgers. Seeing him play, gosh he jus doesn't look like a football player in that uniform.

    One practice squad player for another. This must be Thompsons way shaking up the team. "Sending a message" if you will.

    Would you prefer a druggie like Charles Rogers?

    4 games left and we're 4-8. Little late to be shaking things up anyways.

    Ted Thompson did it last year.

    The last 4 weeks or so of the season he really churns the practice squad. It is his way of bringing in many people for a long look. He knows what Francies is and is not likely to be signed elsewhere.

    It is just his "style' nothing else to it.

    I know right! WTF is Ted thinking? That spot could be had by LaVar Arrington, or Michael Vick or Steve Smith or GEEPERS anyone!!

    Fire Ted IMMEDIATELY. How dare he try to get a view on more players to see if he can improve the overall roster. HOW DARE HE DO HIS JOB HIS WAY WHICH HE HAS PROVEN WORKS. (See Seatle Seahawks)
