    Quote from the article "Wide receiver - The Packers have little depth behind starters Donald Driver and Greg Jennings."

    They have the deepest receiving corps 1-5 in the entire NFL. What a joke!

    During a lot of these analysisises, they just go "who was the starter? how did he do?" and just go from there. They dont look at the fact that bubba was slowly losing his job and donald lee was slowing turning into a consistent reliable TE.

    Yup I agree, that is when fans of opposing teams will look at these so called experts and quote them and think they know ALL about the Pack

    LOLOL!!!!
    Yeah......i LOVE these "experts!"
    I guess Jones, Robinson and Martin are no good.
    I think A-Rod and crew will show these guys how lame they really are this coming season.

    Wasn't Bubba released? That is not quite the same as losing him to free agency.

    :lol: True! Just shows how much these guys did their homework on the team. They don't know the difference between FA or being released!

    Sent them this


    Your article here on the Packers is pretty far off base.

    http://nfldraft.rivals.com/content.asp?CID=797773

    Bubba Franks, was injured for at least 8 games last year, so yeah his production would be "marginal". He ALSO was NOT the starter..Okay well he did start ONE game. But starting one game out of 16 does not make him the full time starter.

    http://www.nfl.com/players/bubbafranks/profile?id=FRA575108

    He also was RELEASED by the Packers, did not go to the JETS via FA

    Then you say ......Packers have little depth behind Driver and Jennings...

    Are you really serious?

    James Jones, Koren Robinson, Ruvell Martin..That is not perfect but probably better then a lot of teams.

    One suggestion is that you double check all your facts before posting them. Lot of people might take your word as gospel and will look very foolish by doing that.

    This is borderline idiotic. Our five-wide was our most dangerous weapon before Grant came along. Lee was the 9th most productive TE, yards wise.

    I really need to go into sports analysis as a major. :roll:

    Well, he did technically join the Jet via FA but that's because he was a FA after he was released :p
