    After watching tonight's game vs the Saints I really don't know which receivers I think should stay, I think a lot of the guys fighting for the job played exceptional tonight. I really liked the performance out of White but also Janis has had a touchdown in every pre-season game, then we have Pinkard who had an amazing Touchdown and then Abbrederis coming off of injury and I really like what he brings to the table, OH WAIT we still have Cobb who of course has a guarantee'd spot on the team along with Adam's and I think Montgomery since they sat him tonight.
    I know that Jordy is irreplaceable but I'm not really worried about who Aaron is throwing to because he is the best in the game and he will get the job done.
    My question is who do you think he will be throwing to this year? what receivers do you guys think deserve to be on the team? who will make the final cut?

    Cobb
    Adams
    Montgomery
    Janis
    White
    Abbrederis

    I think we keep 6 this year...at least for the short term future. Use the top 5 guys as receivers and Abby as the return specialist/emergency 5th receiver if one of the other guys go down. At the very least I think Abby goes to the practice squad.

    I think the bigger question is...how many quarterbacks do we keep?

    We will most likely stash Abby on the Practice Squad... Hopefully nobody else picks him up!

    I see Abby on the PS. We already have Hyde to return punts, who was very good at it last season.

    Same here, I think Abberdaris wont make the the 53. The injury history may play a big role in the decision making.

    Pretty sure the Vikings have their starting 6 WR's picked out. No one the Packers cut will match up with them. Not even close. :)

    I'm convinced the Packers will keep Janis and White on the 53. Abbrederis might get a spot on the roster for the first three games until Guion returns from his suspension, getting a chance to somehow prove he's worthy of a spot. Pinkard injured his shoulder yesterday (no information about the severity), so it's possible the Packers could either succesfully move him to the practice squad or place him on IR.

    The Vikings will use a starting formation featuring six receivers??? That will result in a ton of penalties. ;)

    white and janis look playable with the starters. pinkard seems too good to let walk. abbredarius gets on the field for a long shot at #6wr and pinkard gets 77 yd td... abbys luck sucks.

    This is a tough one, I do think they will keep 6 to start the season and give Abbrederis some more time. They've kept him around for a reason. and last night he was out there a lot, targeted very little with really only one catchable pass. That last one I don't know if he ran his route too deep or the qb threw it in the dirt. Considering he'd been pretty accurate, at least not throwing Donavan McNabb balls, I'm not sure what happened there. He blocked well and seemed to come open more than a few times, with no looks really.

    Up to this point Hyde was our punt returner. Nobody showed punt return ability this preseason, i was disappointed after all the hype with Montgomery. I think Abbrederis has punt return ability, that ability to just slide and get thru space and head up field. He had the fumble that was called back because of penalty, that wasn't good, but then again it was his first real action in 2 years. We tend to see that from people getting back into playing shape. It's still no excuse though, you gotta hang on to that ball.

    and I think from the box stats people will overlook Janis and White, they're the same they've been. White's big plays were largely from poor defense. I think any receiver at this level should have made those catches and he had one glaring mistake on the int in the redzone. That, to me, overshadows everything else. Like I've said before, he seems to have something like this every game that shouldn't happen but maybe a handful of times per year. Easily dropped balls, bad routes and giving up the INT in the redzone. I don't ever see him making plays that I don't think many other receivers can make as well, so where's the upside? He's been available, and that can't be overlooked either.

    and Janis flashes again, and he has RB's and TE's that probably won't make the team telling him where he has to line up a few times a game. He should know the formations by now. I think he definitely makes the team because he plays hard and they can use his special skill set in certain situations, but I still don't see that he's reliable to be up to speed on the details of the game. Luckily his skill set can overshadow that some.

    I don't think Pinkard makes it, maybe PS. His TD was nice, but i'm not putting too much weight on it. Even with Abbrederis being out most of the preseason, he's 7th or 8th on this depth chart and I don't think it's close.

    The coaches and GM have a tough job ahead of them. I guess without really looking at every position and knowing the overall numbers it's hard to say.

    Right now my gut tells me that Janis is in, no doubt, and it's between White and Abbrederis. White has been around and playing hard, but I think his ceiling has been reached and it's not really impressive or difficult to replace. But he's been here and working hard consistently. Abbrederis, I think has more to offer as punt returner and at the receiver position, but can he stay healthy. So my long winded post is basically to say all 3 make it for at least another week or 2, then it will come down to White or Abbrederis. One of the suspension spots will be filled with them, and one will be cut when it's filled by Giuon or Jones. If Abbrederis stays healthy I think he's kept over White in the end.

    Really? Thought this was a no brainer at this point: Rodgers, Tolzien & Hundley.

    Only "move" I could even foresee is cutting Tolzien and putting Blanchard on the PS, but as good as Hundley has looked, I don't think he is ready to start if Rodgers goes down (this year), Tolzien is. If we were in a rebuilding year, I could see this move, but we aren't, Tolzien is safe at #2 and Hundley will be a game day inactive for most of the season as he develops even further.

    I see Abby potentially making it as the #6, but then being one of the 2 players cut when Jones/Guion suspensions are done. 1-3 weeks into the season might allow the Packers to slide him onto the PS, since most teams are set on their 53. Plus, I don't think he has shown other teams enough (along with his injury history) to really stand out as someone another team would grab for their 53.

    Well, we may be picking up some of Minnesota's cuts. According to some on this board, the Vikings have more talent than the Packers.

    Janis is the best of this lot. Plus - he still has more upside than the rest.
    White - the interception was his fault, he eased up his route and the DB simply stepped up. Thought he lost his job on that one play. But he came back and played very well the rest of the game.
    Abbederis - Hopefully we could hide him on the PS, but I don't know. I thought he looked quick and athletic out there - despite not playing for many months. He is borderline on keeping him on the roster. Lots of upside as he gets some much needed experience.
    Pinkard - One great play should not decide if he makes the team. Can't remember any other plays where he stood out. 4 receptions in this preseason, thats not stepping up.

    White played himself into the #5 spot last night (due to a process of elimination), despite cutting his route short on the interception. I think the bigger question right now is "Are the Packers satisfied enough with White at 5 or do they grab a more experienced player off Waivers"? Personally, still not sold on White and I would take Boykin or James Jones over him.

    what did White do that was so great? He caught some wide open balls thrown his way as a result of extremely poor defense and the one time he was contested, he withered, like every other game. That INT in the redzone was a horrible play, and I'm more inclined to think that will happen again, then him facing such poor defenses.. To steal a phrase from the announcers last night, I think McCarthy found out he had what he thought he had in White. I think he will always be a PS caliber player, maybe a small step above and if he's in regular rotation for your WR you're in trouble

    Pinkard had a 31-yard reception vs. the Patriots and would have had another long reception for a TD in that game but Hundley overthrew him.

    Most likely he won't make the 53 but should be a candidate for the practice squad if his shoulder injury isn't serious.

    There's no doubt I would prefer Jones over White. Boykin, no thanks.

    Not sure it would. As long as there are only 11 on the field. :) (is there a limit on how many of any one type of play can be on the field? Never thought about it.)

    Poor choice of words on my part. The Vikings have their 6 WR's for the 53.

    It's possible to have six receivers on the field but only five of them would be allowed to make a catch. It's mandatory to have seven players on the LOS with only the ones on the end of it on both sides being eligible as a receiver.

    Put six on the field and have one line up as an OL and another declare himself ineligible?

    Edit: scooped again.

    One of your six is likely Charles Johnson.

    He's a guy the Packers.....cut.

    Poor Vikings. Nothing changes.

    Vikings picked him up from the Browns PS... oh well. Maybe the Packers should have kept him. :)

    Didn't the Packers keep Boykin over Johnson? And Boykin is were?
