Huh?

 That might be what your reaction was when you saw the cuts the packers made.  And some of them that they didn't make.  The pack cut 2 veteran running backs, this after cutting DeShawn wynn last week.  Then they signed one of the 3 to the practice squad.  They did not sign Morency or Herron.  It was Wynn.  Why?  Not sure.  I can only speculate.  It really seems that Thompson, like most other GMs, likes guys that he drafted, as opposed to the better players.  All 3 RBs on the roster and the one on the practice squad where drafted or picked up by Thompson.  I'm not sure why Thompson likes guys who can't stay healthy so much.  It's like he loves damaged goods.  I'd hate to see his wife. 

Case in point: Junius Coston and Justin Harrell.  Both are out for the season.  Both spend more time on IR last year than on field.  Both could have been cut but remain packers.  KGB is injured again but remains on the roster. 

Now.  With so many teams dropping guys it would stand to reason that the Packers would pick up some guys who could really help this team.  John Lynch?  Chris Simms?  Any defensive players?

So who are the Packers looking at?  Derrick Frost.  A punter.  Thompson you strange silly sonovabitch.  Thompson likes to work with guys that he drafted and you could go as far as to say the guy just about hates free agents.  The past 2 years only 1 player a year has been picked up by the pack in free agency.  A few are picked up on waivers but mainly its the draft.  When you have an opportunity to pick up a guy like Jason Taylor or a Randy Moss, you at least try.  They talked to Daunte Culpepper before the draft.  Whoopty do.  John Lynch on the pack would be great.  Hell anyone at DT would be better than our current players.  Chances are the current roster that the pack have on there website will probably stay the same.

Unless Frost can beat out Ryan for the starting job.  Which would be like watching to asthmatic computer jockies foot racing each other.
