    Here's the link

    And here's the Sharper:
    If he is cut, I'm just curious to see if any of you would want him back in GB. Granted, he's older and slower, but Manuel sucks and Underwood is unproven as an everyweek guy.

    So... yes or no- Go!

    This was discussed in NFL News and Sharper said he was going to be back. :shrug:


    edit, do the Packers allow their FS to 'freelance' ?

    Why would we want a guy who's not only on the downside, but a big mouth who bad-mouthed the Pack after going to the Vikings? We need players who let their performances speak for them. Besides, we need a guy with more upside that'll play more than one year.

    I think Sharper only badmouthed Sherman. I may be mistaken.

    Sharper would be OK if he stops trying to jump routes, avoiding blocks and stop missing tackles...just play solid defense. The Packers need veteran depth at safety and I think he still has the athleticism and speed to be a nickle corner. The price would have to be right.

    Sharper as a nickle corner? You must be out of your mind!

    You might remember there was some discussion between Wolf and Holmgren about whether Sharper was a corner or safety. With his skills, he should have been a corner. He's not very tough. It seems to me that a nickle corner would be perfect for a guy that is getting old but still has most of his skills.

    Wherever Sharper can freelance the most, suits his skills the best, thats my take on Sharper.

    Sharper badmouthed the packers. He was pumping up his teamates before a monday night game at lambeau. And I remember he said......" I was with these bitches last year, and I know we are better than them."

    Who wants a guy like that

    Sharper also said that the Packers were a young team on their way up after the queens second loss this season to the Packers. That was broadcasted locally in Minnesota.

    Key words in that post are "pumping up his teammates"

    He's gonna "kiss up" to whatever team he's on at the time.
    Like they always say though, be careful when burning bridges.

    I think even more interesting than Sharper would be Smoot, one year ago he was considered one of the top corner backs in free agency, so what is he can't play the Tampa 2 D. Why not give him a shot. Can't go wrong with Harris, Woodson, and Smoot as your corners.

    im with you K-mac he was being a leader.


    but it doesnt matter all thats just talk. his play was garbage at minn. we already have a safety who struggles in coverage we dont need two. plain and simple

    I don't want him back. I thought we kept him two years too long. We had no one better than him, but that doesn't mean he still didn't suck.

    I thought he had no closing speed and that's what killed him.

    Sharper always talked a better game than he played. I would sooner see some young talent, at least they have a legatimate excuse for busted coverages and can learn better.

    I do remember Sharper making some Anti-Packer comments before a game. That was the game where Driver BURNED him so badly!
    I remember afterwards thinking "Sharper, how do those words taste now, having to chew and swallow them???"
    As bad as he was burned, i don't think he has the speed to play anymore.
