    I just checked the team website. The team has terminated the contract of Wahle as epected. But they also released Ruegamer. If Wahle and Rivera are gone, as expected, why on earth would we cut their top back up. Doesn't amke sense to me. Maybe they needed money to sign R-Kal Truluck and Antonio Chatman, which they did do today. I don't get it. At least we tendered contract offers to the restricteds.

    Well i was wondering since we cut Wahle are we still over the cap i mean releasing Wahle and Ruegamer must have freed up some space right?

    This was definitely a surprising move. I guess I don't even know what to say to this one. :|

    Why did they rush to sign Truluck and Chatman? Likewise, why weren't Luchey, Roman and especially Hawthorne on the list w/ Whale and Rue? Neither of the 3 have lived up to their expections or salary. I mean why stop w/ Rue and Whale; keep chopping wood.

    As the next few days pass by - We probably will see Roman & Hawthorne thrown to the wolves...

    As far as Ruegamer goes - We still have Scott Wells, right?

    I expected Roman to be gone this off-season, he's a failed project, but they should resign Luchey, he will be the heir of Henderson at the FB position.

    Btw, to me, these moves seems like moves that would have been done if Favre was to retire, because with Favre retiring, Shermans salary cap problems would be all gone, and give him the opportunity to build up a new O-line in the upcoming draft, and free agency.

    However, they offered contracts to players including Craig Nall, and I would want to have a strong o-line around this guy.

    Maybe they are going to at least sign Rick DeMulling

    The offering to Nall is no surprise - He's earned at least a decent opportunity to step up... Also - the Draft this year is QB light... even the Niners aren't real happy with nothing called 'starting material' out there to look at. JT O'sullivan tho' - he interests me... not sure why... other than his resume stats from N.O.

    I'd sure hate to see Brett retire - especially with going out on what that last game had... you'd think he'd give it at least one more shot.. just one! Then he can end a great career on the right note!

    I believe the moves we have been seeing lately makes a good build up to Favres retirement, because I believe they would have sacrificed more to keep the O-line intact if he were to return.

    I don' think these are indications of Favre's retirement. I still think he's coming back. I see this more likely as TT attempting to put his stamp on the team, but I still don't get it.

    There have been a lot of bad moves during Sherman's tenuor, but I am suprised no one mentions all the money they spent on Clifton last year. Flannigan played exceptionally well out there while Clifton recovered from his SappAss injury. That alone would have told me I didn't need to spend 10M? dollars in a signing bouns plus a hefty new salary for Clifton when my C is handeling the job for 2.5M? That money could have been spent on a lot of other players. With Clifton's injury, GB could have rolled the dice expecting no other team to sign him for that much. Whale could have moved to LT and Ruegamer to LG if they lossed Clifton. Sherman strikes again.

    You guys need to get rid of Sherman just as bad as we need to get rid of Tice. At least your orginization doesn't trade away the biggest game breaking receiver of all time for next to nothing.

    i understand the resentment towards Moss since you guys are Packer fans, however the aforementioned statement stands true. this guy gets 90 td's in 7 years...something nobody in the nfl has ever done. he gets constant double and triple coverage and makes the best cornerbacks in the nfl look stupid. saying Moss is not the biggest threat at wr in nfl history is just plain homerism and stupidity.

    I think Moss is a great talent at WR. I for one have not seen EVERY WR therefore I can not agree with you. In opinion Don Hutson was the greatest receiver of all time. You know when they played REAL football. You know when the WR weren't protected by the rules of the game. Back when you could atleast TOUCH the reciever. Yes he is a great talent, but to say he is the biggest threat? ...

    Food for thought here, what do you call those who insult others for having a different OPINION?

    Real football...back when the hits were more ferocious and the players were bigger and the game was faster? Way back then huh? I never called anyone stupid or made reference to anyone with a difference of opinion. What I did say was to say that is stupidity. Saying something stupid and being stupid are two different things. Don Hutson? Geez at least say Jerry Rice or Art Monk. Brett Favre is the best QB that I've seen play this game. I hate him, he's a Packer, but I would never say Tarkenton was better then Favre just because they played in two different eras.

    Tell you what, I'll give you that Moss is the BIGGEST threat at WR of the last 10-15 years WHEN he WANTS to be.

    Let me ask everyone a question that the "P.C. " ESPN types are working overtime to avoid.... and that's Why is only Moss being considered an elite Receiver? Why are we not seeing any comparisons at all of Moss versus T.O.? T.O. has just played in a SuperBowl - so, since the Eagles lost that gambit, Terrell's now a nobody? Something's very wrong with this forced correctness in chatter over at ESPN --- I'm likin' those guys less & less.

    One nice thing - is that we now can listen to Steve Czaban on FSR every morning on the drive in to the Office... Waaaay better than before...!

    I've always said I think Owens is the best WR in the league, He can block, he never gives up and you know you can depend on him each and every single play to give his all. I do think when Moss WANTS to be a bigger threat, he is.

    Owens
    Moss
    Walker - yea probably a little bias here lol
