DMV, dude I'm doing my best to assist you but have you ever heard you can't help stupid? Be the bigger man and let the name calling go. Let them appear imature if they want to call you a half-wit and move on.

Again I'm doing my best to help your cause, because I think we are on the same page but your not helping me with the name calling. .

P.S. Hope all our favorites have a good game tonight with out injuries.

It's all good. Don't take things too seriously. I mean it's not like we didn't draft a tackle this year.

"It may take one guy to fill all those four. It may take four guys to fill all four. That's the difference. It's not like when you lose a fullback and say, 'Well, we'll just go to another formation.' In this case, you can lose four slots, which is critical. So you need guys that are versatile like Rock, who can do a lot of things and play a lot of places."

Just throwing this out there....Rock is the KR. If he partakes in kickoffs I wouldn't know it cause someone else made all the tackles last yr mostly Thomas and a LB but I forget who. Rock does not partake in PR or atleast he's not significant cause he's not the runner, but if he's blocking then you can't tell me someone else can't block....they are football players. As for Punting I think he has been the last man back prior to the kicker setting up as a blocker ....I can understand that.

I asked once and will again. Can anyone show like a layout of who plays on special teams and their position they play and any back ups to those players?

Thanks for the quote. I'm sure alot of people here didnt know that Rock Cartwright played 4 positions on special teams. I figured I'd piggy back off your post and share some other facts that some of you may not know about Rock Cartwright:

•When Rock Cartwright does a pushup, he isn’t lifting himself up, he’s pushing the Earth down.
•Rock Cartwright is so fast, he can run around the world and round kick himself in the back of the head.
•182,000 Americans die from Rock Cartwright-related accidents every year.
•Rock Cartwright can kill two stones with one bird
•There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of creatures Rock Cartwright has allowed to live.

I would like to see that also. I was actually trying to google it and ran across an article that I had missed before about who leads the team in ST tackles and players mentioned on special teams. Seems that Khary Campbell was the top tackler 4 years straight. Which puzzles me because some people argue we should keep people because of special team needs only. He also played on defense not just one unit. But the leading tackler got cut. Notice the title of this article.

In other news, Vick has been cleared to play in week 3. Our first game with Filthy is week 7.

Thats excellent news! By week 7, McNabb and Westbrook should both be hurt and Vick will have been suspended again for some sort of thuggery. Our #1 defense will be facing Kevin Kolb and no running game. I predict over half the Filthy fans leave the stadium by half-time; while the other half commit the largest group ritual suicide in history.

Well hopefully this gives the Skins 4 games to see how the Eagles are trying to use him so we can game plan.

If Marko pans out, I guess I can forgive Vinny.
Yeah, I saw the preseason game (vs Giants was it) and I was trying to remember who mentioned the name Javon Ringer in the draft forums. I guess it was you but he is exactly the type of back we are looking for, a scat back that can threaten to score 6 every time he touches the ball.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Don't want to open a can of worms any further, so let's just consider this post "read-only".

First:
The whole argument about somebody being one dimensional is useless. Damn near everyone on the team is one dimensional: JC, most linemen, the WRs, punter, kicker, deep snapper, Clinton Portis, etc, etc. Rock Cartright is one of the few players we have that is *not* one dimensional -- he plays several positions, and I don't care if they're all on ST. Special teams is *very* important. Add to that the fact that he's pretty good at the positions he plays and that makes him a valuable player.

Second:
We can't just put anyone on ST -- the injury risk is too high. Moss returning punts would be great, until he gets injured. Then our passing game falls apart, and with that so does our offense. Our season would basically be over. Believe it.

Third:
I wouldn't be surprised at all if Rock was overlooked as a RB injury replacement *because* of his value on ST. Bottom line is: Rock plays special teams. That is his position on this team, and he does it well. Sure he's not a world-beater, but he's above average. Let's not get greedy.

Good he'll be our new Roy Williams especially with his chronic case of Fumbleitis.

Also if Montgomery becomes a surprise cut does that mean that Dixon gets his spot?
