Bummer, he looked good in preseason..
But when you lose 5 starters on Defense, you gotta drop somebody to sign sign somebody. I hope he finds a job soon. If not we can always re-sign him.
He\'d fit in well in Chicago\'s system. But he\'ll have to beat out Kordell Stewart (laughing hysterically). I wish him well.

I know we need people on defense right now, and I know like tweeky said \"somebody has to go\", but WHY O`SULLIVAN ? Why not somebody like Gleason? because of the $ maybe?
I have a feeling that may not have been a wise move. I watched O`SULLIVAN at camp and pre-season and he looked impressive. I often wondered why Bouman was even considered #2 QB. I was thinking O`SULLIVAN #2 and Bouman #3. Evidently the staff was seeing more than what I observed......this really really bums me out. Don`t be surprised if somebody picks up O`SULLIVAN before the weeks out. :mad: :casstet:

Hmmm, going w/ 2 QB\'s seems to be a new trend in the NFL. Hope it doesn\'t come back to bite us. Who here would rather Bulger as our back-up over Bouman?
