Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I too am high on Alridge. We need that 'take it to the house' speed and only Anthony (possibly Dorsey as well) has that out of the 5 tailbacks we have.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

From what we have seen from the guys that VC has drafted over the last couple of years at WR I don't think Marshall is at all a need for this team. We have got some good WR at this point.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Ok, you are probably right. if the 5 includes Sellers, which it would have to, then I would think, given the critical comments on Mason's special teams play and lack of blocking, that Aldridge may very well have won a job. Vinny also said there are12 spots up for grabs. Maybe the Aldridge/Mason battle is on Thursday night.

I like Alridge. But Dorsey has a lot of speed, too, and is healthier.

Rock plays ST, but for the 53 count, ST gets 3 spots:

Kicker
Punter
LongSnapper

The return men have to actually fit other spots on the roster, that is if you go with Vinny's 25/25/3 split.

I prefer Alridge but I could live with Dorsey also. As long as they don't pick Mason. I am just not as high on Mason as a lot of skins fans are. He has floated around for a couple years now gaining a lot of yards against backup and non NFL players. I see him as more of a pure backup to Portis/Betts and not a change of pace RB.

I think Alridge has to fight the injury question, but we kept MK on all last year. I really hope they keep one of the 2, and of course, I hope it is the "right" one.

Health is the biggest question.

Hey, I just realized your username-instead of repping your fandom of MW-can rep your fandom of the 53 man roster

Mason doesn't add any value. He runs with decisiveness and decent elusiveness, but not moreso than Portis and Betts. He's not faster than Portis or Betts, he's not more powerful than Portis or Betts, he can't run block like Sellers, he's not a better pass protector than Portis or Betts, he's not a better receiver than Portis or Betts, and he's not a better special teamer than Rock is.

He adds nothing to your roster. Decent player but that's why he has no shot.

Alridge at least can offer a major upgrade in terms of breakaway speed over Portis and Betts.

Portis
Betts
Sellers
Rock
and if there's a 5th: Alridge

I think so. Mason isn't making the team. There's just no role for him.

Yeah, I don't really get why so many people don't think Mason is worth a roster spot. A lot of people use the "he's playing against 2nd and 3rd string guys" argument, and yet a lot of those same people are in love with Marko Mitchell.

I think "running back" in the sense that Vinny used, includes Sellers. So he's one of the four/five.

What happens if Sellers goes down? Or do we have Edwin Williams down as an O-lineman?

Not sure I understand. If Sellers goes down, like IR type, we probably activate Eddie Williams from the PS.
