Balmer has been playing very well in the past six games or so. He hasn't been getting a LOT of playing time because the starting three have played so very well but losing him out of the rotation is NOT a good thing.

Kenny Phillips S
Philip Merling DE
Brandon Flowers CB Curtis Lofton ILB
AND THEN we pick Chilo Rachel over a bunch of other guys i'm too embarrassed to mention.
You people who make the argument for this pick are wrong. We missed on these FOUR guys????? And we have what? A bench warmer Balmer.

Balmer still has time to develop into a nice player for us.
yeah and its not like he sucks when he is playing. In his playing time he has done a fine job and usually you don't hear his name which is a good thing. Give him time, he was considered a raw prospect and he is still developing.
