    Neal maybe..............but with Dinger FB was a dead spot.............Godfrey has never been as good as he was in Dallas or his first two yrs here..............

    Losing Neal I think was smart............EG was done and Dinger never really liked using a FB.............he was a one back OC and balanced TE sets...........Godfrey has never matched his play since he left...........has he been serviceable and better than any other MLB we have had.............sure................but that is another story

    To a point Bongo is right. I don't believe Tullock would have seen this much action had Thornton not been hurt, now everyone realizes he can play. Finnegan wouldn't be out there if not for Hill being hurt. We would have never found Tony Brown if not for AH being suspended. Scott actually looked pretty good at DE today, but he wouldn't be around if not for injuries. Vince should have sat a year, but I have a feeling starting him came from Bud, after they scripted Volek's release.

    Man, half your list is FA that were signed BECAUSE Fisher didn't want to play the 1st and 2nd year players and the rest (roughly speaking) are only playing because of injuries to the regular starters.

    Oh please. We have possible the worst starting WRs in this league and Roby and Orr haven't seen the field yet this season. I have heard many good things about Orr, and given the chance i fell he could do a Colston. But no, with Fisher in charge, he's going to end up like Darrell Hill- 4 years, no games, cut.

    I don't buy that bongo.

    No way KFC would have continued to play. Fisher would have lost the team by the bye week. I'd rather start Drew at QB than KFC.
