A WHOLE PIE!

The fact that Jimmy Clausen's name is still associated with professional football in any shape or form is pathetic, tragic, deplorable, despicable, horrendous, and down right bullshit.

Clausen, LOL

 

I'd bring Testaverde out of retirement before I spent another penny on Clausen.

pretty much this.

 

as i see it, it's a choice between lafell, nicks, baldwin, decker, and tate.

 

i just don't see lafell as being all that comparable with those other options. sure, he's a good blocker and he knows the offense but he's just not as good as those others. the fact that he'd probably cost just as much as those guys just doesn't help his case.

 

i think we keep ginn around as he's just too useful as a returner and does really well as a third WR option and i think he's still got a good amount of room to grow as a receiver. what we saw this year was just a little bit of what he's got to offer, imo. lafell, on the other hand....i think what you saw this year was about as good as it's going to get.

 

let lafell go and pick up one of those other 4 guys and draft another WR in the first couple rounds and i think we're set.
 

i dont see Packers keeping James Jones and he isnt a dropoff from Nicks or Decker imo

that's a possibility also.

 

we have options.

 

i hope we get to take advantage of some of them.

James Jones is a huge drop off from Nicks.

Thanks to pro-football-reference.com:

 

I guess it depends on how you look at it. Nicks certainly has greater overall numbers.  The thing that concerns me about Nicks is money vs. production, relative to who else is out there.

Just a thought....do you think the possibility of Barner developing into a return man would make Ginn expendable?

nope.

 

i think it just gives us more options and security...that is if barner grows into the job.

 

we need more weapons in all phases.

Literally....hit the gym kid.

 

I'd prefer Ginn to LaFell.  I'd hate to see them keep Donald as the 3, add a better WR in FA, and let Ginn walk.

Clausen will want to go to a team that might give him playing time.

 

I bet LaFell comes back for the minimum.  If he doesn't, he's got a year or two before he's out of the league entirely.

 

Florence will be on the golf course next fall, teeing off with Hangartner.
