It is hard to argue with that

We kept him because we needed a new Ade "throw to me for a quick TD" Jimoh on this team.

Re: Why did we keep Tryon?

I think Tryon is on a short leash, with Richardson and Westbrook on the PS. 4th Round or not, the coaching staff must have seen something in practice that goes beyond his red-headed stepchild mentality against Jacksonville (as in beaten like a). Granted, this is a 4th or 5th string CB we're talking about, but with as injury prone as the CBs ahead of him have the potential to be, I think Tryon is a big stretch.

Those 6th and 7th rounders beat out pretty weak competition. Would you rather have a young guy like Chris Horton or an older guy like Vernon Fox? The former is unproven, but he's young and has some talent. The latter might know the system, but he's older and has proven that he is not going to be a decent starter. So, the question isn't whether those 6th or 7th rounders are great; it's whether they are better than the alternatives.

I'm at a loss for their keeping Tryon. The guy consistently looked out of his league going against backups. I cringe to think that we might need to play the guy if we have DB injuries.

Don't worry too much about Tryon. He's just holding a roster spot for THE ADE. After the 1st game, the skins can sign THE ADE and put Tryon on the Practice Squad. If they signed THE ADE now, they would have to guarantee his salary.

BRING BACK THE ADE!

Tryon simply isn't ready to step on an NFL field. McMullen was a guy we simply needed to keep. We only have 2 healthy WR's. Moss and Thrash. ARE has a freakin cast on his hand. Thomas isn't ready to step on the field and Kelly is hurt. Why we cut the guy made no sense what so ever.

Re: Why did we keep Tryon?

Frankly, I'm more worried about Reed Doughty. In the Panther's game, every single big play had his fingerprints all over it in terms of blown coverage and missed tackles. We need someone to step up at Safety or else that's where the offenses are going to go.

He's only a rookie, I'm pretty sure they didn't draft him with thoughts of him starting this year. Nickle or Dime package maybe and definitley on Special Teams

Re: Why did we keep Tryon?

They obviously kept him becasue he was a 4th round pick and they are not going to give up on him over a few bad preseason games. Hopefully they can stay healthy back there and not use him until he's coached up some more.

I don't quite understand the hatred of this kid...he has not cost us any real games yet. Preseason games are practice...give him some time before you write off his entire career.

Patience is something that nobody seems to have. Thankfully it's the coaches that call the shots and not the fans.

That's for sure. I have not seen hating on a player like this since Archuletta...but at least Arch was a veteran who was paid a lot of money and cost us real games. This is a 4th round pick who was not given a big contract and has never taken a meaningful snap. It's not like they gave him the starting job...all they did is keep him on the roster.

Saying someone is not qualified to make an NFL roster does not make you a "hater"....especially if you are a fan of the team pulling for the guy to succeed.
It is just an objective opinion based off of a ton of film.

I would understand keeping him on the practice squad.
The reality is the team decided they needed 5 CB's and he beat out the weak competition.

If you are comparing Tryon's performance to others, few would argue that he performed better than some other cuts such as Mason and McMullen.

I think we all expected a mid round corner to not get torched so frequently.
We all understand that he is a long term project and that corners need to be tested on an island...but long term projects should initially be on the practice squad, not be called into action on game day if there is an injury.

The reality is Tryon, Chris Wilson made the team and not Mason or McMullen.
Why not use the practice squad and keep all 4?

Re: Why did we keep Tryon?

I'm starting to think maybe a new thread is needed specifically to explain why McMullen cannot be placed on the practice squad, becuase too many people aren't getting it.

Also, let's remember that Torrence needed some time to develop as well.
