yeah, I just don't see the spot for him. doughty is no world beater, and if he's starting, your team's in trouble (just not fast enough), but he's competent and horton has just looked... awful. too many blown coverages. gomes had a couple good plays and hasn't seemed any worse, and he fights less .

If Niles can make the squad, all the Huskers will probably make it.

I've really been impressed with Austin. I think he's ready to contribute this year.

Austin definitely stays. His ability to do more than one thing enhances his chances. Some tough decisions at RB & WR.

One kind of interesting thing, I hear that in practice they've been running a lot of plays this past week with Key Williams as the primary 3rd down back, not as a FB. So not sure what could mean.
Hey Smack what is Clinton Portis up to these days????? Any info?

That's wrong. NFL notified all teams on I think Thursday that bc of the lockout it would be cut down to 80 players, not 75. I don't have any link on me though

I found some clarification here. You are correct. Thanks.

Re: Camp Battles- The journey to 53

With all these tough decisions and players looking good, I'm worried about the redskins players that are cut and getting picked up by other teams. I'm especially worried about the eagles (and giants, to a lesser extent) cherry-picking.

The eagles have been known to do that in the past- like with Antonio Dixon, who currently is one of their starting DTs. They need some cheap depth at some spots and are probably drooling at the possibilities with who the redskins cut. The Giants are on the opposite spectrum because they have been really inactive in free agency and also have a couple of injuries at key spots. They are looking for depth and also looking at some key positions to bolster like wide receiver.

Both teams would be chomping at the bit to give Banks a chance, even given his injury history. Both teams may also be looking for a third or fourth wideout and watching the redskins roster closely -- either at Terrence Austin or Donte Stallworth. Or maybe even one of the redskins rookies not named Hankerson -- he's definitely one to hold on to
