Packers Show Carroll the Door...Finally!!!

Breaking News from Packers.com:

"The Green Bay Packers on Tuesday released cornerback Ahmad Carroll. Executive Vice President, General Manager and Director of Football Operations Ted Thompson made the announcement.

Carroll, the Packers' first-round selection in the 2004 NFL Draft, played 34 games in three seasons, starting 28 contests. He had 104 tackles (95 solo), three interceptions, three sacks, 26 passes defensed, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery."

Wow! After Carroll's horrendous game last evening the Packers obviously have decided that somebody -- anybody -- is better than keeping Carroll in the lineup. And as is becoming standard operating procedure under this new General Manager and coaching staff, if a player isn't cutting it, he gets cut. What a concept. Thanks for another really great bust of a draft pick, Mike Sherman!

What a Shocker! Ferguson Hurt

Given his history, it is hard to image WR Robert Ferguson being injured.

Just kidding.

Has there been any Packer over the past six years injured as often as Ferguson? Now the team is waiting to find out if his right foot is broken. It was apparently injured while he returned a second-half kickoff. After his injury history I sometimes wonder if the Pack just stashes someone on the practice squad for when Ferguson goes down. Let's see...yup...there are two wide receivers there now...take your pick.
