    One side comment about Garza. The guy must be in incredible physical condition for his age. At training camp over the years, I've often been within a couple feet of him when he's signed autographs for the kids after a practice, and he's the single most impressive player physically that I've seen there. His body fat must be almost nil for a 310 pound man. I've read that he doesn't have an ACL in his right knee. He tore it in 2003 and didn't know he was playing without it until a physical in 2005 when they discovered he'd been playing without it. He still doesn't have one. I've been frustrated with his play at times, but I've never questioned his heart. The guy gives 100% all the time. He seems like a great guy too.......always a class act with the kids and the fans.

    My UDFA list was missing the Packers starting center. It does not change my UDFA statement I made earlier about how rare it is for recent UDFA's to now make it in the NFL. If Boggs succeeds, he would definitely be beating the odds.

    Evan Dietrich-Smith Undrafted in 2009
    Debuted in 2009 for the Green Bay Packers

    Kyle Cook Undrafted in 2007
    Debuted in 2009 for the Cincinnati Bengals

    Lyle Sendlein Undrafted in 2007
    Debuted in 2007 for the Arizona Cardinals

    Brian de la Puente Undrafted in 2008
    Debuted in 2011 for the New Orleans Saints

    Ryan Wendell Undrafted in 2008

    Wendell has been with New England for the past five years. They are always competitive, so if I were him I'd wait forever until the Pats tell me they do not want me back and go another direction.

    If only the Bears had a time machine, but then we would not have Jay for when we needed him in 85.

    Boggs getting from 195 to 295 is attributed to Garza Super Donuts:
