However I thought I saw Mason making sure Alridge didn't run the ball out when it was deep in the endzone a couple of times.
Betts isn't the guy that i want blocking for JC on third downs.

Well unfortunatly you got him. He is going to be the 3rd down back. You know the down in which they will either be trying to get 3 or 4 yrds which when teams stacked the line similar to goal line Betts got stuffed, or he's back there pass blocking cause we need like 7yrds or more. I understand maybe your meaning Betts would be run out of the back field to catch a pass but if it's a blitz he might have to stay in to help block. Especially if it's longer then 10 yrds that we need to get. Most teams would blitz in that situation.

I forgot what we were arguing about but i agree with everything you are saying here. Im pretty sure it wasn't about Bett's amazing skills though.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I wonder if one of the "shocking" cuts could be Todd Collins. Yes, he's heads and shoulders above Brennan and Daniel, but this is definitely his last year here. If Cerrato felt really confident that Brennan has #1/#2 potential and Daniel has #2/#3 potential, and if either of them hit the practice squad another team would take them up, then keeping both Brennan and Daniel could be smart... assuming Cerrato is more concerned about the long-term than the short term. And it would be an especially prudent move should the front office determine it necessary to replace Zorn after the season with a WCO coach like Shanahan or Holmgren.

I really dont think it'll happen, though. Just idle speculation. Chase went undrafted and chose to sign with the Redskins, knowing full well we were established at the QB position. Ultimately, he hasn't done enough to beat Colt Brennan and he's still 5'10 tops... he'll be safe on the practice squad.

Not entirely out of the question

Isn't it a bit premature to label Alridge injury prone? He was a little dinged in training camp, but I don't think that makes him injury prone necessarily. Also, he's roughly the same size as Darren Sproles. Neither guy is gonna run through too many tackles, but neither guy is going to get caught from behind very often either.

As much as I like Mason, he's a poor man's Portis/Betts. It would be fun to have a return guy/change of pace back who is a threat to take it to the house any time they touch the ball. Moss has been the only real speed threat on our team for a while.

On April 27, 2008, Alridge signed a contract with the Denver Broncos as a free agent.[5] He was put on the injured reserve by the Broncos following the 53-man cut, ending his season. The Broncos waived him on February 11, 2009.

The one thing that people don't know is that he was a WR in Houston (college) before converting to RB. He could definitely make the team.

John Czarnecki from Fox Sports reported that as 10 trades that need to be made on an article from September 2nd. Here you go:

5. DT Anthony Montgomery to the Panthers: Ever since the Panthers lost mountain man Maake Kemoeatu at defensive tackle, GM Marty Hurney has been looking for a big replacement. Washington's Montgomery is 6-foot-6, 320 pounds and very unhappy about being demoted from the starting lineup with the arrival of Albert Haynesworth.

I think Mason is a better player then Betts. I don't like Betts much at all since he fumbled the game away in Dallas 3-4 years ago.

I think Aldridge should be cut....

He held the ball exposed in his right hand on that kick off. Just seemed to be begging for a fumble. Definitely a good change of pace for the other team when u turn the ball over and the result is 6 points.

Honestly, I think Cartwright and Betts will both stay here and Mason will go to the practice squad.
