Time to move up some practice squad players

The season is on the brink of disaster and it's time for Shanahan and Allen to become creative. I think it time to make some roster changes and bring up a few practice squad guys. I feel the redskins are on the outside looking in on the youth movement in the NFL and changes need to be made.

I think they should move up James Davis, Terrance Austin and sign Patrick Turner from the Jets. They should cut Joey Galloway, Roydell Williams and Chad Simpson.

Although Iíve heard good things about Simpson he can never make it to the game day roster so he has to go. The others are self explanatory. We have to bring some youth and productivity to the skins.

What does the forum think? Would you make changes and if so who and why?

Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

Its still mathematically probable to make the playoffs and your suggesting giving PS guys a look ? Maybe when the playoff formula is improbable but we also need to look at guys to see how they finish.

Top of the list who won't quit....london Fletcher

Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

I think Joey effing Galloway should be cut...he is a disaster. Id say bring up Davis or Austin in his spot. I wouldnt do anything too drastic outside of that...NFC is far from being wrapped up

Hey Chico its 11/10, your signature is out of date. I think it expired back in 5/10.

Same thing could be said when Zorn was 6-2. (and don't make a retort based on hindsight, since no one had that luxury prior to the Pitt game).

But a real GM would entertain the possibility of deliberately weakening his team so that they won't quit, but still lose, in order to get a high draft pick.

Excellent post, they should bring in Patrick Turner and may I also add Cook the C from the PS.

Galloway has done next to nothing. I don't see any risk in cutting him and brining up Terrance Austin.

Re: Time to move up some practice squad players

When I first saw this, I thought it was just another of those 'the season is over, might as well evaluate talent' & maybe it was intended as such. However, the names & moves diehard mentions are very possible to happen. In fact, I would be surprised if we don't see James Davis moved up, there was only 1 rb on the roster mon. night!

Austin, I'm not so sure about the staff's view, but I would love to see him in, Galloway out. Cook I don't see happening, Montgomery and/or Dock is likely to play before him. Who is Patrick Turner?

Coach has given Galloway a vote of confidence on more than one ocasion. He's said the same thing about Lichtensteiger and Stephon Heyer......No his glasses are not fogged.

I'd like to see Austin called up as well, but it sounds as though Galloway has been demoted to the bottom of the WR depth chart from what I hear, Roydell has moved up to Galloway's spot and Banks will get significant snaps.

we can't cut galloway or r williams, they both run great routes and are amazing in practice and drills

on a serious note i would really like to see what austin can do in a real game. and i don't think it would be crazy to make a move like cutting galloway and bringing austin up. are we in the hunt for the playoffs right now, yes. do we really have anything to lose by cutting dead wieght like williams and galloway
and bringing someone else in, no.

seriously what would the big deal with having someone else besides galloway out there. can anyone name 3 meaningful plays galloway has made this year? i rest my case

In Williams' defense; he's a bigger wr & he plays on kick coverage team. Don't think Austin would be good there due to his size.
