I get your point. But the topic is about the final 53 and there will be some 3rd and 4th strings on the final roster....

Alridge is a nice player but prone to the injury bug going back to his days in Denver. Mason might not excel at ST playing, but can hit the hole better than all the others.

What ever happened to DORSEY, everyone on here skips right over him to promote Mason and Aldridge?

LOL. And that is the most hilarious thing about this whole final RB slot. Rock will get the touches before any 4th RB. THe 4th RB will have to make the team base don special teams and that is why I think Mason fails to crack the roster.

I think that if an Aldridge makes it, he will play before we ever see Cartight. It is realy not a joke. They want a change of pace back that can take it to the house with break away speed. Thats why they brought those guys in. Cartright is another Clinton and Betts, just much less effective.

Dorsey could be the pick. I think Alridge has more talent myself but Dorsey may be the safer pick as Lotus has suggested. Dorsey fits the bill as a change of pace back and seems to have less of an injury history than Alridge. He has a step up on Mason too as far as a returner on teams.

I agree with this. If we keep him we're going to use him.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I've posied that they might choose to replace Rock with a combination of players, but that seems almost silly.

I think Rock is pretty safe. As are Betts and Portis. This seems like a simple four man race for a roster spot. Mason/Alridge/Dorsey/E. Williams. And I think that it will be Mason, of the bunch. But he has no right to that spot, I just think he's the leader of the four.

And I think whoever gets it, becomes the 3rd RB, when they happen to be active. But Rock will have a stronger holding on his roster spot than Mason/Alridge/Dorsey.

Do not discount the possibility that the 3rd RB will come from another team's roster after cutdown day. It's probably 60-40% that Mason/Alridge/Dorsey make it to opening day.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

Aside from Vinny almost assuring that Mason/Aldridge/Dorsey would make the roster, he and Zorn both indicated that there are some veteran(s) who may be cut that will really surprise a lot of fans. I'm thinking this could be referring to some combination of Wynn/Cartwright/Betts.

Not me. I've been vocal about Dorsey since we signed him and gave him a shout again above.

I also am bewildered by the love for Alridge. He was a stud on one drive but otherwise has not shown anything but the ability to be hurt and to fumble on the rare occasions when he does practice.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

I think the thing that is going to bother me when we do make these cuts, is when some crazy yahoos are going to be ranting about how the team is going down the shitter....and all because we cut some 3rd or 4th stringer.

I dont think our special teams have been that spectacular in years. I'd rather have a player that can do multiple things for our team. Than a subpar returner who is a excellent special teams tackler. If that is the only reason you want to keep him. You can't even be called a half wit.

If anything Rock is expendable. Thomas, Betts, Moss, etc. can return kicks and play another part on the team. Rock only plays special teams. I never said Mason was the only option. In my eyes. It isn't a question of CP production its about if he gets hurt and Betts comes in an takes over the reigns. Who is going to back him up? If your answer is Rock. Then why couldn't he do it last year. Dude get a clue. Get off Rocks nuts. Because he is a average player at best and is almost 30. I would take Mason, Aldridge & Dorsey over him. Special teams is important. But like someone said. If he is the best player on ST and ST sucks. What does that say? One thing it says is Danny Smith needs to be a better coach and prepare his unit better. Another thing is if Rock is so valuable as a tackler. Why have teams been getting superior filed position on returns for the past few years..??


If you have a player than can return punts and play on offense or defense as aback up or other wise.... Why would you keep a one dimensional subpar player? That stunts yoru chances for having a running back to mold for the future. Again Rock is almost 30..Get a clue. Idiot
It's pretty hard for me to take you seriously when you come at me with sentence fragments.

We're clearly not watching the same team, the Redskins have been one of the better punt and kick coverage teams in recent years. That's directly attributable to guys like Rock, James Thrash, and Khary Campbell.

Your opinion on Rock is so far in the minority that it's not even worth debating anymore. Come back to reality a little bit, study up the numbers some, and maybe we can continue the conversation.

If we cut Rob Jackson, we're looking at 0-16.

Re: Vinny tips his hand on the final 53

It's going to be like last year at RB:

Portis
Betts
Sellers
Cartwright

Cartwright has done nothing to lose his job and is great at ST (KO returns), the only way another RB makes the team is if they take from another roster spot say WR like Randle-El or Renaldo Wynn. Unfortunately we just don't have the room for such talented RB's in the roster, it really is a shame.

I guess the development of Devin Thomas in KO could also be a sign that they are thinking of replacing the Rock, but I don't know if Thomas is fully trusted just yet for that role.
