    Final Roster and Cuts

    Key dates on the horizon: Roster cuts to 75 players must be made by 1 p.m. Tuesday; the roster cut-down to the maximum of 53 must be done by 1 p.m. Saturday; after 9 a.m. next Sunday, teams may establish a practice squad of up to eight players

    So I think the first 49 are pretty easy.. So who will be the other 4? D'Imperio, Clark, Onatolu, and Frampton?

    Favre
    Sage
    TJ

    Peterson
    Gerhart
    Reynaud

    Tahi

    Berrian
    Harvin
    Camarillo
    Walker

    Shiancoe
    Dugan
    Kleinsasser

    Mckinnie
    Loadholt

    DeGeare
    Cook
    Radovich

    Edwards

    Pat
    Kevin
    Mitchell
    Kennedy
    Guion
    Robison
    Evans

    Greenway
    EJ
    Leber
    Brinkley

    Henderson

    Winfield
    Cook
    Allen
    Lito

    Otherwise, the rest of it looks pretty good. Although, I would like to see them give Marko Mitchell (my UNR guy) some more field experience...unless he's been cut already and I just didn't know about it. The last UNR guy (Burleson) didn't do too shabby for us, and MM already has a preseason TD under his belt (71-yarder against the Rams).

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    LOL

    Ya know...I was just about to post a long rebuttal, showing what I thought was going to be irrefutable evidence that T-Jack has shown only what he's been ALLOWED to show by the coaches...

    Having looked at the play-by-play of the last 3 games for T-Jack, however, I've seen nothing but plays that looked like they were drawn up by ,or for, an Oompa Loompa (short right, short middle, short left).

    That makes me wonder...was he SUPPOSED to throw all those short passes, or is that all he feels comfortable doing, ie. consistently checking down to a dump-off target? Is that why the coaches pull him out sooner than Sage?

    Or is it that his primary receivers are always that well-covered, or the line doesn't allow him enough time to let the receivers get downfield?

    I'll admit...I'm rethinking my stance on keeping T-Jack over Sage. I'm gonna have to do some more research on this, I guess. LOL

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    Where's Rice and Griffin?

    They're hurt, yes, but not on IR(or they'd be unable to return until the 2011 season.) They will take 2 of the 53. Or am I missing something?

    Narrowing down the Final 4 to a Final 2.

    I like D'Imperio, because I don't like Tahi, and he's a Rutgers guy, I think he'll be a special teams stud and in time an excellent lead blocker at FB. Realistically though, it's probably Onatolu's roster spot. I think we should keep Frampton as well, for the same reason, special teams.

    Rice and Griffin will start the season on the PUP list I am guessing. This means they will not be taking up a roster spot.

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    And with that ... here is what I think the 53 will look like

    Offense (24)
    QB (3) - Favre, T-Jack, Webb
    RB (3) - Peterson, Gerhart, Reynaud
    FB (2) - Tahi, D'Imperio
    WR (5) - Berrian, Harvin, Camarillo, Lewis, Walker
    TE (3) - Shiancoe, Kleinsasser, Duggan
    OL (8) - McKinnie, Herrera, Hutchinson, Sullivan, Loadholt, Cook, DeGeare, Radovich

    Defense (26)
    DE (5) - Allen, Edwards, Robison, Griffen, Mitchell
    DT (5) - P. Williams, K. Williams, Kennedy, Guion, Evans
    LB (7) - EJ Henderson, Greenway, Leber, Brinkley, Farwell, Onatolu, Erin Henderson
    CB (4) - Winfield, Sheppard, Cook, Allen,
    S (5) - Johnson, Abdullah, Williams, Frampton, Sanford

    Special Teams (3)
    K (1) - Longwell
    P (1) - Kluwe
    LS (1) - Loeffler

    I don't like only 4 CBs ... but I don't see any other CBs that really have a shot at making the squad. If they think that Griffin will be back before Week 6, then they will throw him on the roster instead of PUP, which means that Fred Evans or Guion are out of luck.

    Re:Final Roster and Cuts

    It looks like Young might make the squad. I wonder who that leaves out?
