A-TRAIN TO GREEN BAY???

Postby P4CKFAN » Wed Nov 02, 2005 3:16 pm

Now that the Cowboys cut Anthony Thomas, what are the chances the Packers have at signing him???....They need a RB and the A-Train would be a good fit...

The Packers have as good a chance as any other team.

They certainly need a RB and A-Train would fit the bill. Hopefully GB is on top of this and making the phone call as we wait.

i would think there is a good possibility that's where he ends up. better than 50 percent i'd say.

I sure do hope that he gets claimed by GB. I just picked him up with GB in mind. If you have room on your roster, I think it is worth taking a chance as long as you can drop him later.

Yeah thanks for the heads up! I'm gonna try to pick him up because I need a RB in the worst way! I need 1 RB and I have Bell with Shipp as a back up and now I'm tring to pick up Chester Taylor. How lame is that lol! But do you really think A Train will really beat Fisher out for the top spot

all starting runningbacks are valuable....

just dont be adding thomas thinking he'll win you the championship....he's got talent, but GBs oline is pretty questionable.....and thats putting it lightly...

that being said....i added him :-b

I think everyone here at the cafe should start their own Anthony Thomas prediction thread that way no one will miss this huge breaking story.
Maybe, Anthony Thomas should get a whole forum about him.

Looks like I am not the only one desperate for a running back that breaths. I figure he will at least get the goaline carries if GB does pick him up.

It's grasping at straws from a fantasy perspective IMO.

I don't think GB is even the best place for him to land. This year, no Green Bay RB is going to fare that well. There's just a lot of things wrong with that offense.

If the longshot happens and A-Train ends up starting for GB I'd say he would be a #3 RB at best.

I'm inclined to let someone else pick him up.
