Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread
 
According to theredskins blog:
[url=http://theredskinsblog.com/]The Official Blog of The Washington Redskins[/url]

The team has announced the players that are being released to meet the 53-man limit. Here’s the list, organized by position.

* QB Derek Devine
* RB Marcus Mason
* FB Nehemiah Broughton
* WR Maurice Mann
* WR Horace Gant
* WR Billy McMullen
* WR Anthony Mix
* DT Matthias Askew
* DT Ryan Boschetti
* T Devin Clark
* T Todd Wade
* T Tavares Washington
* G Andrew Crummey
* G Fred Matua
* LB Curtis Gatewood
* LB David Holloway
* LB Danny Verdun-Wheeler
* S Patrick Ghee
* CB Cedrick Holt
* CB Matterral Richardson
* CB Byron Westbrook
* P Derrick Frost

I don't understand how this is possible? I thought that McMullen was a lock to make the team-- and if he is cut, why did we cut Mix as well.

Well McMullin is a bit of a surprise. I was thinking maybe Crummey would make it. Too bad about Boschetti--it was a numbers thing there. He worked his ass off for us.

We went with the draft picks in the end. This begs the question: how much input on the roster did Vinny have? Did he overrule folks here? Hope the coaches got the folks they wanted.

Zorn said yestarday that Mcmullen was a lock. Whats up with that?

They must be pretty confident that Kelly will make a speedy recovery, otherwise the WR cuts make no sense.

Well, he didn't quite say that. I think Jlac said that after listening to Zorn. But it's a surprise all the same--Billy played well for us, and we've got injuries there.

Hopefully this day ends the lovefest with Mix.

No, JLC said Mcmullen was a lock. Check out the presser.

i dont understand the wr spot. if kelly is hurt and dont know when he can play and thomas slow in learning the offense. we still dont have a big WR to go to. McMullen at least played well in the preseason and is a big veteran WR i just dont understand.

After Mix missing time with injuries and not performing very well, no surprise hes out.

I am surprised at the Billy McMullen move I really thought he earned a spot, and as stated earlier it would have been a luxury to have room for Mason but its a numbers game and no way four RB's where staying.

And Ryan Boschetti will be back eventually.....like always

And they kept Justin Tyron....? Bad Move!

Other than that no surprises.

I wonder if Vinny's ego had a factor in the WR cuts. After the way McMullen played this preseason there is no way he deserved to be cut.

Maybe we go after a vet WR? It feels a bit thin there with the injured rooks. I wouldn't be surprised if we do, in which case I think Wilson or Jackson is on the bubble.

Justin Hamilton is the one really big surprise here. It's very surprising that he stayed on at the expense of another skill position player. Only 8 RB/WRs surprised us all.

Don't you want to give a guy a chance to be the player you think he can be?

How did we keep Tryon over McMullen? That's a headscratcher.
