Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

I thought that most of the draft picks would make the team, but all 10 made it. Cudos to Vinny Cerrato! Thats 20% of the active roster. Pretty unbelievable IMO.

I don't know about soft, he was ALWAYS strong vs. the run. I don't know what your definition of soft is, but to me at least, any CB that will come up and hit in the running game isn't soft. His hands, of course, are anything but soft.

Carlos was very bad at coverage his first two seasons, but he showed good signs last year, and had a much better preseason then anyone thought he was capable of given his injury.

I think we might pick up a LB..we need another WR to fill in until Kelly comes back. I am happy Hamilton made the team.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

Yeah, one thing I agree with is that by Week 2, this team is going to add some veteran help, probably at WR. I can't think of any other reason why they would cut Mason, but only keep 5 WRs.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

I think some of these suprise cuts happened because they kept more D-Lineman than expected. Rob Jackson and Erasmus James and we kept Evans and Wilson. Why did we keep Tryon???????????????!!!!!??? (Did they not see the games he played in and how he was scored on a picked on constantly)

That's pretty soft.

Though if Grilliams had a problem with it, all he had to do is tell Rogers to move up. Grilliams seemed to want to bait the opponent to throw on 3rd and short, figuring he would make them play pitch and catch to get the first down as opposed to grinding it out.

Still pretty soft, I agree.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

I can't believe Mcmullen was cut. I swear to God if Kelly ends up sitting all season I'll flip shit, but I hope this means he's healing better then they have let on.

Some have suggested they may make a play for another vet wr, any idea who might be available after cuts? Why would we even bank on that when Mcmullen played so well for us?

As for Thrash over McMullen . . . that's a tough call. Based on this preseason alone I'd say Billy is the clear choice, but Thrash has been so clutch for us over the years, he is probably a consistent performer in practice, and he doesn't seem to be injured much, so I can see why he made it over McMullen, but I'm still upset to see him go.

I hope Mason makes it somewhere, he is fun to watch.

No love for Thrash? His one of our best special team players. And if we cut him, that leaves us with only 2 WRs with true NFL experience, to run the WCO.

I sure hope this is supposed to be sarcasm. Devine was what? 3 of 8 for 32 yards and 1 int? thats lights out?? that statement is a head scratcher if it wasnt meant as sarcasm.

Re: Official Cut Day Discussion Thread

Here is what I don't understand. Devin Thomas has shown nothing all pre season. Put his ass on IR or do something with him to make room for Billy M. Billy M. clearly outplayed him this pre season. Makes no sense. Our situation at wr is a joke.

In all fairness to Thomas he's behind schedule because of injury. It's too early to bail on him for a journeyman guy like McMullen.

Man you really want Billy x 2, all kidding I would have liked to have seen him get a spot I think he earned it.

It could be they are thinking about bringing Reche back..... after St. Louis just cut two Ex-Skins? j/k

Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that the Rams have made their cuts and finalized their 53-man roster.


No big names were among the players released; wide receiver Reche Caldwell and cornerback David Macklin are probably the best known veterans who failed to make the roster.
