    Did anyone see a Joppru standing on the Seahawks sidelines during the game? Is that where he ended up, or is it another Joppru?

    It's Bennie. Seattle picked him up after Chicago let him go.

    Yes after we cut him, he signed with the Bears practice squad. The Seahawks activated him from the Bears practice squad, and the Bears let him go. (the team that holds the practice players rights has the ability to activate the player when a claim is placed by another team).

    I am wishing Bennie luck.

    Seeing ol' Billy Miller kicking butt for the Saints on Saturday made me curse the old coaching staff one more time.

    Joppru isn't the Seahawks #1 TE, but that's because Jerramy Stevens has incriminating pictures of Mike Holmgren.

    Think back a couple of years ago and try to remember all the negative posts about Billy Miller. I'm not saying they came from you either. I was beginning to think I was the only Billy Miller fan in the entire NFL! Most of our esteam board members couldn't wait for the OLD coaching staff to get rid of Billy. He was a TERRIBLE BLOCKER, to SLOW, blaw blaw blaw!!! He wasn't good enough for the Texans!! WHATEVER!! I wish him well!! BUT, not the Saints!!!

    Billy Miller, Joppru, and oh man Gaffney!!!

    All in the playoffs. Not the main man but when you look at Gaff, you got to know how dumb our previous staff was. They had him as the #2 and not a slot receiver. At this point in his career he is going to be better than when he was in the slot during the Bradford days.

    This goes to show though how far our team has to go. Those guys are second and third string on their new team but starters on ours.

    When we let Mcree go. That to me was the fall of our secondary.

    Agreed. He was cheap, and filled a very good role when in there. I was very dissapointed that we let him go to the Panthers. I guess that's just the price we paid for the previous regime.
