so active for ten games and you're out... active for one game in two different seasons, and you're out... been on PS for two years, you're out. Being on a PS for as little as 3 weeks in a season counts as a year...

its not a safety net, welfare type deal, its a transition (unemployment) period... and anyone can raid your PS at any time and sign those players to their active rosters... PS'ing simon (if it were possible) would mean he'd be gone in two seconds...

Betts is very likely not going to be cut - because he will be traded. Betts has talent and there will be a back hungry team out there who will feel Betts will be able to stay healthy for them and play quality ball. He won't be kept on the team unless he tears the field up in the last games of the preseason - and he probably won't even play vs. St. Louis. You can't keep Betts otherwise without sending a message that hard work with results doesn't count - its how high you get drafted, even if you're injured.

Portis will probably make the team, though he could go to the practice squad.

McCullough will be kept, because he is going to be the backup to Portis. He has the explosion and talent to do it all. Coach Byner was talking about how they wanted him to run with more authority into the holes and that he has been doing it. He has the electricity.

Morton is there.

So John Simon and Rock Cartwright are the guys who will battle it out for the last spot. At this point the most important thing will be short yardage ability, and second to that is how they play on special teams. We need a short yardage guy. Right now my thought is that Simon will make it, and Rock will play for another team.

I'm not sure who would trade for damaged goods, unless Betts shows something these last two preseason games. Even then we'd be lucky to get a 4th or a 5th rounder for him.

You're really going to need to provide some explanation for this one.

Either explanation works for me, though I like the Ricky idea better.

Yes, this is Ricky Willia...I mean...Shane...yeah, that's the ticket - my name is Shane. Yeah, that's right. Shane it is. Sure I was absolutely serious about Portis going to the practice squad. Sure, there's a risk he could get picked up by another team and we get no compensation but we should let some of these other players who have been with the team longer get the first shot. Fair is fair.

And yes, I was kidding.

Betts doesn't show something in next 2 games maybe even just this StLouis game I think he's gone. Doesn't seem to have the attitude of a Gibbs Redskin. Cartwright does. Betts probably gone, hopefully we can get a reserve DL or OL for him. McCoullough and Simon will be the decision, but Gibbs may find a way to keep both. We'll see how many TE's are released.
