    I see on the transactions piece of our website that Jammal Lord & Nick Luchey were released and Eric Winston & Charles Spencer officially signed. I was a little surprised to see Lord go. Thoughts?

    Caught me by surprise. I liked Lord. Hope he catches on somewhere.

    No surprise really. Lord didn't have any real experience at safety and was longer than a longshot to ever contribute.

    I'm not shocked at all to see Lord go. He didn't look like he had a clue when he did get his tidbit of playing time last preseason.

    We followed him because Lil_Red was a fan from his Nebraska days. Every year we were shokced to find him on the roster again. Just not a contributor, for whatever reason.

    Alrightythen:ok: I wish I had Jessica to..... Whoops, what were we talking about now?:shades:

    Seriously though, Is Cook our only option at FB? Or am I missing someone?

    Because he played QB in college. College QB to NFL Safety? No much of a chance there.

    True, he was kind of looking like a sloth. Whoelse do we have besides Cook?

    I think we are still looking for our short yardage/goal line back.

    Hill was cut last month.

    The Tight Ends play Fullback or HBack in quite a few formations, so the traditional FB type of player is not really used.

    Does anybody know why we cut Norris? I always thought he wasn't utilized enough.

    Hands of stone. Probably other reasons also, but he is mainly straight ahead blocking Fullback.
