if TD builds this team into the winner we hope for, there will be A LOT of 7th rders not good enough to make our team. i felt like we threw away our 7th rd picks on draft day, but i did'nt see anyone else they could have drafted so what difference did it make?

How bout the RB from Georgia...............Lumpkin ???

Outstanding !!!

I guess I'll get a chance to see him out here now.

Him and guess who.....thats right, Matt Stewart is on the Cards now.

That guy was very solid for us back in 2003 and 2004. His release along with Chris Draft were main reasons are run D tanked after that year.

Chris Draft was beast.

Fontenot and(Rodgers-)Cromartie. The Cards radio commentator will have a field day saying that over and over.

But yeah, several of our rookies are starting. Our secondary has Grimes and Houston. It would've been nice if Fontenot was kept, but oh well. It doesn't seem like this year's draftees will turn out like the draft Jenkins was in.

There is no rule that a player is required to sign with the team that drafted him. Fontenot is from Arizona. He might have been offered a chance to sign with the Falcons, but when Arizona came calling, he went home.

If he does not sign with the team that drafter him, he is required to reenter the draft a year later. Unless the team releases him, or trades his rights. This is simply a situation where he did sign with us, was subsequently cut, then signed with his home team.

Nothing groundbreaking.

It also means they're not afraid to say they were wrong.

ding ding ding... says more about AZ than it does about us, at least negatively. we admitted we didnt think he was good enough to make the team, and AZ snatched him up because they thought he helped them. i like our corners right now though. theyre young, but i like them.

our last regime could never admit that they were wrong. that is as important as anything. theres no point in hanging onto a mistake just because you are too stubborn to admit that it was one. our regime wont do that (hopefully it wont) and that is one of many reasons why i just love TD. B) :P
