Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Blache said he went into the game looking at 3 or 4 players but that during the game another played poorly enough to cause him to question whether the person should make the team. He didn't identify the 3 or 4 he was originally looking at nor the one who played so poorly as to cause Blache to question his original assessment.

Any guesses as to who was on the bubble before tonight in Blache's mind and who joined them?

Word is that Anthony Montgomery has been on the bubble. Renaldo Wynn could go either way, but he hasn't shown much this preseason.

Looks like the secondary is basically locked up. Barnes and Tryon will probably stay. But I'd say the real competition is for the 5th, 6th, and 7th linebacker spots (assuming they keep 7).

I agree. Henson was all over the place but he also got a 15 yard penalty and got beat by a RB coming out of the BF. I heard Blache talk about Wilson. I think he's shown he can get to the QB. Tough call on the rest.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

This is my guess of some of who will get cut:

Wynn (did he even play during pre-season?)
Alridge (fumble in KO sealed his fate)
Westbrook (toast)
Henson
Rayner (victim of the numbers game)
Buzbee or Jackson (one of them will make it)
I would cut Randle-El if he wasn't going to affect the cap, he drops too many balls and punt returns are no longer his forte.

Mitchell is a lock and either Dorsey or Mason could be a surprise in making the team. Shit, the way Mitchell has played I would make him my #2 receiver.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I personally haven't heard about Montgomery being on the bubble. Just that Golston the top DT backing up AH and Griff and that Blache has been heaping a lot of praise on Alexander this summer...all of which presumes that Montgomery is on the bubble. And he very well may be, but I would think he makes it.

As I said last night, I suspect Moore could be a roster cut (or practice squad I suppose).

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I've been promoting the idea of keeping Alridge but I think he cut himself last night. To me, all things considered, Rock earned the #3 RB spot.

I think the Skins need to keep Dorsey for PR/KR purposes. We need some explosiveness there.

I makes no sense whatsoever to keep Wynn over a younger player because Wynn didn't outshine anybody in preseason, he has no upside, he doesn't play ST, and, frankly, he's probably just about done in the NFL.

Cutting Montgomery would be ridiculous. He has size and ability. He wouldn't be the only unhappy player on an NFL roster. In fact, it might do him some good to be pissed off if it motivates him to work harder.

The final few roster competitions are close enough to call that the Skins should give the nod to the better ST player in every case.

K. Moore didn't have much of a preseason from what I saw, but I would hate to see him cut. He looked good when he got time last year. Do you think he would be cut/p.squad & they would keep Holmes?

Well, I think Moore is borderline. Holmes could always be put on the practice squad. And activated if Moore can't stay healthy. Would be surprised if both make the active roster. If that were to happen, some other position has to be reduced and I don't see where that would be.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I said it in the "who makes the 53" thread ....I was not impressed with anyone on the team last night. I know I'm being super critical and over exagerating it a bit. I putting my hopes in the fact that the team played vinella so the regular season teams would not have film to look at and I'm talking on both sides of the ball.

As said in the other thread also....I am a Mason fanatic but even he didn't impress me last night. What I see happening, Portis, Betts, Rock and Alridge with Dorsey maybe on practice squad. I just don't see how Alridge will take a whole season of pounding so I'm guessing Dorsey will be back up in case of injuries or vise versa.

As much as I want Collins gone the two young guns have a lot to learn. I can see; JC, Collins, Colt and Chase on practice squad.

Question: If a player gets cut but is most likely going to the practice squad or the team has told them that and another team tries to pick them up off wavers can the player themselves have a choice or do they have to go to the team that claims them? In other words if Chase was cut and the team told him they were going to put him on PS and the Bronco's decide to claim him can he say no thank you or does he have to go to the Bronco's?

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Also keep in mind.....on the Radio and I think Redskins Nation Cerrato said there will be atleast one suprise cut. Zorn apparently said the same thing when interviewed. The million dollar question is who is the suprise cut?

Did they say surprise cut? Or just surprise?

I'm being conservative but I'm almost positive they said suprise cut and I want to say Zorn said possibly two suprise cuts which is why I'm using the term atleast one like Cerrato said.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I see what your saying...I found his interview with a reporter where he said this:

In an effort to keep everyone from submitting the same ballot, Cerrato said there would probably be a surprise.

but the radio announcers I believe 106.7 with Arrington was talking about who the suprise cut would be that Cerrato was talking about ...I assumed the interview was with them cause they then said they interviewed Zorn and he said the same thing.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I don't think they played the Cerrato interview, they were just talking about it, my short term memory is killing me. LOL. but I'm pretty sure they played the Zorn excerpt and I was suprised he said what he said then the announcers talked about it for like 5 min. and went to a commercial.
