    Most Surprising Retention?

    As a counterpart to AV's 'most surprising cut' poll, here's your chance to say which member of the gang of 53 that surprises you the most.

    Poll to follow.

    Dominque Curry as the 7th WR (although more a special teamer) - I don't think any saw him making the team over Avery.

    Never heard of this Guidugli kid, but for all the times I've typed his name out since the cuts, I'm never going to forget it now.
    I believe!

    Fraley. His name seemed to get called a lot in the preseason - and not for good reasons.

    I echo this. For all the discussions, speculations, and hand wringings over which 6/7 wideouts make this team, I can honestly say I NEVER thought Curry was even in the discussion.

    I view Curry's designation as a "WR" to be a mere technicality. His real position is "special teams guy."

    McQuaide, as until I clicked his name in this poll, I had no idea that he existed. That was a pretty big surprise.

    Re: Most Surprising Retention?

    Nice surprise to see Curry here. I didn't know whether we were willing to sacrifice a WR with crazy talent and potential (Avery) for a ST demon. I guess we did and I am not dissapointed one bit. Matter of fact, does anybody remember him making 2 blocks on 1 WR screen against the Ravens last year in pre season week 3 to let McRae walk in the endzone?

    Look at the "Does Claton signing mean Gilyard is gone thread"
    Remember when you see a ZiaRam post you heard it from him first!

    This, then Guidugli.
    If a team won their division seven straight times, that would be a NFL record. Now add on that team did it with seven different QB's in seven straight years,that record is unbeatable. To do that feat, you must of had a great Defense. Jack Youngblood was the captain of that defense.
