King Gives McCarthy and His Staff Some Love....

Always nice to see McCarthy and his staff get some national recognition.

Peter King today in his Monday Morning Quarterback column, mentions the great job McCarthy's staff has done coaching up players like Atari Bigby, Donald Lee and Johnny Jolly. Bigby and Lee were taken off the scrap heap of the NFL (Bigby was cut by both Miami and the Jets, while Lee was claimed off waivers after getting cut by the Dolphins) and Jolly was a 6th round pick. But in all three cases, the Packer coaching staff has done a wonderful job of coaching their guys up and getting them ready to not only play, but to start.

One other note, I just love the fact that the Packers let David Martin go in Free Agency, where he signed with the Dolphins, while Donald Lee, a better, more consistent player, was picked up by the Packers for almost nothing. Of course, Lee has gone on to sign a nice extension, at a very Packer friendly price, while the Dolphins gave Martin stupid guaranteed money, and he has thanked the Dolphins organization by getting hurt, just like Packer fans everywhere could have told Miami he would.

Thank you Nick Saban and Cam Cameron...

Packergeeks advocates signing Beaver because the fans want it to happen. Right.

I especially liked his "It's only the last roster spot, so what does it matter" argument.

Ryan Grant and Donald Driver were both the last roster spot at one point in their Packer careers.

Perhaps Packer Geek Andy thinks Beaver is the next Ryan Grant...? (sigh)
