Well if you believe in your opinion then you need to stand up for it. But by doing that you also have to accept the fact that you may be wrong. With that said, I am very pleased that Kuhn made it through waivers. Who know's maybe he'll put pressure on Staley to perform.

I hope so. May take him a year to adjust to the 3-4 but he seems to have alot of upside.

Orien Harris looked terrible this preseason. Maybe one day he'll be a diamond, but right now he's a piece of coal.

Jon Dekker really sucked it up the first game, but played better as the games went on. He'll be around for awhile and might end up on the 53 man roster next year, unless we draft someone.

Omar tore it up in the last preseason game. Lightning fast release on that kid and extremely accurate. That pass to the back of the end zone to Willie Reid was one of the most amazing passes I've seen in awhile. I don't know how he squeezed it back there. Willie didn't bring it in though.

I would have kept Charles Davis over Dekker.

Yup, keeping Omar was my personal favorite. Now you have a third QB in case the really horrific thing happens.....but hopefully he will join Rick Strohm and Mike Quinn in our hearts and minds soon enough
