Woody Johnson has Hack' back.

Way to stand up for your guy, Woody!

Seriously, though, that doesn't sound good. I am more apt to believe the anonymous coach than what Johnson and Bowles say in public. Teams are generally reluctant to rip their young players. He was awful in the pre-season and, despite having every reason to give him a look, they didn't play him a single down this year. Not even the last, meaningless game. That does not lead me to believe they have a whole lot of confidence in him.

Oh well. I'm still rooting for him, but I'm not expecting him to ever be a big factor in the NFL.

I thought he would be better but I truly feet he was in fight or flight mode every single time he hiked the ball his last 2 years on the field. I think it really messed with his brain's synapses.

Wishing Chris Godwin and Garret Sickles good luck for this weekend's NFL draft. I can't think of anyone else we have in the draft.

I was looking at this last night and Godwin projects to be a 3rd round pick. Sickles is more likely to be a FA signing after the draft. I read he did not have a good combine.

Gotta think Sickels wishes he would have stayed in school now. Another year would have really helped him I think.

Yeah I thinks Sickels needed another year to physically develop and pile up some highlights.

FA Signings
Bell - Bengals
Schwan - NYG
Golden - 49ers
Sickels - Colts

Sickels had extenuating family issues that guided his decision to enter the draft

Didn't Bell get hurt last year? Do I remember that correctly? A little surprised he was completely undrafted.

Bell was hurt for much of the season, than again in the Rose Bowl. Shame, he was a player when healthy, but most pro teams steer clear of guys with multiple college injuries. Wartman-White also wasn't picked up, likely for the same reason.
A good team has to have players capable of making plays...oh, wait - we're so there!
