Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

Another Devin/WR added to the practice squad. He played with JC at Auburn. Let go from the Colts.

Devin Aromashodu

Practice Squad Update
Posted on September 1, 2008 by Matt Terl

Tyler Ecker did NOT sign to the practice squad, despite the rumors to the contrary (including the one that I myself propagated). The team has instead signed their third Devin (alongside Thomas and practice-squad O lineman Clark) in Devin Aromashodu.

Aromashodu played with the Colts last season and was in their training camp until Saturday’s cuts. He will forever be immortalized in Colts lore for catching the first Colts touchdown in new Lucas Oil Stadium, a 94-yarder from Quinn Gray. (Note that neither of those guys was immortalized enough to actually, say, make the Colts roster or anything. I’m sure the play will still live in infamy, though.)

Like departed fan-favorite Anthony Mix, Aromashodu played with Jason Campbell at Auburn, which is probably the most relevant thing about him — in fact, the two connected for a touchdown in the 2005 Sugar Bowl.

Aromashodu is the eighth and final player on the practice squad roster.

Yeah the WRs haven't showed anything b/ they were out of shape, got hurt, and couldn't practice.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

I think it was a tremendous mistake to keep Tryon on the 53 man roster. He was the one player that I thought was an automatic cut. You cannot coach size. He is too small to compete in the NFL. As much as I love Darrell Green, he would have a hard time in this day and age of big physical receivers. Darrell Green had two things that allowed him to compete. He was faster than anyone on the field and he was a fighter. He would climb the latter and fight for the ball. I haven't seen any of these qualities in Tryon.

Frost was cut when Brooks was drafted and Frost knows it. He competed his ass off but he didn't stand a chance. History was his enemy. Redskin organization and the fans remember all those shanks under pressure. The guy is unreliable and you just don't know when he is going to kick one sideways.

I'm really surprised Tryon and Richardson were kept and equally surprized Billy McMullen and Mason were not kept. The dept at wide receiver is puzzling. Obviously we will not see any four or five wide receiver sets. Devon Thomas and Malcolm Kelly have shown nothing so far. I agree with keeping them but they needed to keep an additional receiver because of the health concerns.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

I never bought totally into mcmullen for one reason...he wasnt dynamic enough.
I am however am still scratching my head over only five wrs...
If kelly's injury is sooo bad, why not pup him and keep the depth? especially with a broken randle els hand? are we being lied to by the media over kelly's severity? Is it zorn lighting a fire under his butt to get back out there?

I never bought into the McMullen Man-Crush. He was the leading receiver in preseason. Yet, Chicago - who is starting Brandon Lloyd hasn't snapped him up. The boy doesn't have it and showed it. How many balls did he drop? More than one or two. Just like Frost, he had a past to overcome and he couldn't do it.
I hang my head in shame

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

It doesn't matter because they didn't keep six wideouts, but I still don't get all the hate for McMullen. All the guy did was catch passes when he was on the field and people act as though he should have been a one-man wrecking crew.

I'm not sure what else McMullen could have done to impress. Sounds like some people just don't like him.

'It's a dirty business,' one veteran said of the fact all 10 draft picks made it. 'It's not always about football around here.'"
Redskins Insider

So - how does this mesh with other reports that this team was having great chemistry with the vets helping young guys (looked for link, I think it was a Mosely story (ESPN)). Sounds to me like its just more of JLC's sour grapes over having new guys make the team and his old stand-bys getting the ax.
JLC is making it sound like this only applies to the Redskins. It's a dirty business all around the NFL. Furthermore, unless I missed it, why doesn't he mention that a lot of these veterans were once rookies themselves who knocked out other veterans. Poor job by JLC

Why did Mason sign with B-More's practice squad instead of with ours?

It gets harder and harder to read JLC. Every insider post reeks of Anti-Snyder Spin. Where's the positive take, or even <gasp> objective take on the quality of the new guys? Instead, we get bile from ex-punters and demoted atheletes. Are there two sides to every story? Not from the Post as of late.

It really is getting ridiculous. We've heard people rail on the idea of using the draft more vs. free agents for years now. We finally have a deep draft and all 10 make the team and now THAT's a problem. Good grief.

I think the problem is how they performed in preseason if they even played at all. I think we could point to a few better players who got cut over a drafted rookie. Take Frost for example some would say he had experience and outperformed Brooks for that job. Brooks got the job and we really do not know how this will work out.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

The Frost deal was such a joke. Yes he outperformed Brooks but it wasn't by much. Certainly not enough to justify cutting a 6th round pick for a guy who's been consistently inconsistent for us.

And the problem with this complaint is: We do know how the people the draftees were brought in to replace played. You don't want a draftee challeging your position - play well consistently. Show the team there is not a need at your position. Even then, if you're an older player and not tagged to be a starter: Beware, when it comes to depth, youth is a benefit and age a liability.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

JLC's thoughts on football seem like those of someone who doesn't really understand the game or league lately :/

insisting frost would make it, saying ecker made the PS (why would he with cooley and davis and yoder already onboard... there's just no need). thirteen posts saying backup DL guys will play if the starters are still hurt (REALLY??). minor, but consistently grating.
