Ouch.
I think it should have went like this:

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

the only pick that shouldn't have made it was tryon. he was worse than terrible AGAINST THIRD STRINGERS!!

everyone else showed flashes except for our WRs, which have a higher investment and will take a year :/.

I know Tryon f'ed up during the preseason, but at least he was in shape, did not miss camp, and played the entire pre-season...which cannot be said of our two rookie WRs. He's a fourth round pick that was chosen wayy too early. So the team needs to bite the bullet and develop this guy.

why bother when we can get about 50 better guys without wasting time on him? he got burnt every play, he's no good.

Billy McMullen is the football version of "All-airport"...

Any NFL team that counts on him to be a difference maker is a team going nowhere.
I think you and I may have been the only two here who thought he would and should be cut

i dont think mcmullen is a guy who take your team to the next level but, we are only going to have 3 WRs who are going to be able to contribute for the first half of the season. thomas is going to take a while to get comfortable and kelly is out for the first 2 weeks with an injury. so that leaves us moss, randle el, and thrash. randle el is going to be playing with a brace on his hand due to a injury. so we are one serious injury during a game to have only 3 wrs. mcmullen would have just added depth and a big target in the redzone maybe. so looks like we are depending on cooley and davis to be those for us. maybe we will see alot of 2 TE formations with both cooley and davis.

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.

Well we haven't even seen whether our two rookie 2nd round WRs are any good since they were out of shape and haven't played significant time. And you could get the argument that we could've gotten a veteran instead, but that doesn't mean the team needs to give up on them.

the WRs haven't showed anything... tryon has, and what he's shown has been insanely bad.

Does anyone know if Kerry Brown is still on the IR, or did they give him an injury settlement

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?
