    I see Burton making it for special teams in the beginning, but making an impact later on.

    As for Cook, honestly it's impossible to say, the guy missed waaaaay too much time last season, he's essentially a rookie this eyar, just like Greenway was his second year. He's gonna get a chance to show what he can do. I like his athletic ability, and his raw skill, he's just gotta learn the NFL game. We saw him get toasted this preseason, but again, give him a bit of time. I hope he can be our #3, because he earned it, not gifted it; but he needs to do something.

Like most, I just don't get Berrian's allure ... he rarely gets separation and his hands are suspect. I can envision a Bobby Wade-type departure for him.
    Considering he was hurt most of last year, and favre had a god-awful year, his previous two years had been decent.

    Two seasons ago he had something like 700 yards, the year before almost 1000. Now, not fantastic, but pretty solid for what he is.

    Fraizer says he's going to be a huge part of our offense, and as long as he stays healthy, he can be. No, he's not a true #1 guy, not a go-to, but he's a playmaker, something we NEED. He's restructured to a fairly inexpensive contract.

    To compare, you want to keep a guy like Cam, who has done literally nothing for us, Aromashodu, who didn't top 200 yards last year, or Iglasias, who hasn't played a pro snap yet?

    Berrian is the safe bet. Iglasias hasn't really impressed a whole lot, Arceneaux I just can't see making the roster at all.
    Watching the cowboys game right now. Mcnabb and Berrian actually made a few connects. Cannot see us cutting him even though I hate him.

    So to clarify, because you assholes love to twist words.

    If Bernard Berrian gets cut before week 4, I'll send you $10 in the mail. If he lasts past week 4, you send me $10.

    If he gets cut ON week 4? What happens?

    Re: Predicting the Roster

    QB - Mcnabb, Webb, Ponder (3)

    RB - Peterson, Gerhart, Booker (3)

    WR - Berrian, Harvin, Jenkins, Aromashudu, Iglesias (5)

    TE - Shiancoe, Rudolph, Jimmy, Dugan, Resiner (5)

    OT - Johnson, Loadholt, Love (3)

    OG - Herrera, Hutchinson, Cook, DeGeare (4)

    C - Sullivan, Cooper (2)

    DT - Williams, Ayodele, Guion, Evans, Ballard (5)

    DE - Allen, Robison, Griffen, Awasom (4)

    LB - EJ & Erin, Greenway, Farwell, Onatolu, Dean (6)

    CB - Winfeild, Griffin, Cook, Allen, Sherels, Burton (6)

    S - Abdullah, Sanford, Frampton, Raymond (4)

    LS - Loefller

    P - Kluwe

    K - Longwell


    I expect them to look to the waiver wire for backup linemen and linebacker help.

    DeGrease has went from being the potential starter week 1 to a guy third on the depth chart behind Herrera and Cook. He has failed at playing tackle as well.

    I do not believe they are satisfied with their linebacker depth at all. You do not start giving reps to a guy like Everson if you are content with your depth and I am sorry but guys Larry Dean and Herron doesn't cut it.

    I like D'Imperio as a special teams guy but keeping him isn't worth the risk of losing Resiner, Sherels, or Burton. Though maybe management isn't as high on Burton.

    I also like what I have seen from Stylez but with Ballard being able to play inside or outside I can't see them keeping 5 DE's.

    I am going with Tyrell Johnson getting cut. Twice now he hasn't been able to take control of the starting job. I think they will cut their loses.

    Going to add that I could see Camarillo making it over Iglasias due to his punt return ability. However with the way Musgrave uses heavy tight end sets I can't see Greg getting on the field when instead he could use Shancoe or Rudolph.

    I see that Tristan Davis has been waved. I expect him to be quickly signed by someone else.
