Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

QB: RG3, GROSSMAN, COUSINS (3)

RB: HIGHTOWER, HELU, ROYSTER, MORRIS (4)

FB: YOUNG (1)

TE: DAVIS, COOLEY, PAULSEN (3)

WR: GARCON, MOSS, HANKERSON, MORGAN, ROBINSON, BANKS (6)

T: WILLIAMS, POLUMBUS, SMITH, COMPTON (4)

G: LICHTENSTEIGER, CHESTER, MO HURT, LERIBEUS, GETTIS (5)

C: MONTGOMERY (1)

DE: CARRIKER, BOWEN, JENKINS, GHOLSTON (4)

DT: COFIELD, BAKER (2)

OLB: ORAKPO, KERRIGAN, WHITE, JACKSON (4)

ILB: FLETCHER, RILEY, ROBINSON, ALEXANDER (KEHL CAN'T CATCH A COLD) (4)

CB: HALL, WILSON, CRAWFORD, BARNES, GRIFFIN (5)

S: MERRIWEATHER, WILLIAMS, DOUGHTY, GOMES (4)

ST: GANO, SUNDBERG, ROCCA (3)


This is in no way in any particular order.

-We keep Morris as a #4 RB so that no one will steal him off of PS

-Paulsen stays instead of Paul because Paul cannot block, is undersized, and cannot catch

-Banks makes it because of Saturday's game against Bears (91 yd punt return). Can't let that walk away. Robinson stays because he is coming around and possesses good WR qualities as well as ST.

-Hard to see us keep Brown on the roster, will most likely IR him. I can also see us bringing in another Vet, or faciliating a trade.

-We keep 5 CBs because our secondary needs as much help as possible. Even if Griffin can't cover a bed.

-Tanard is gone based on the seriousness of Merriweather's injury. He's far behind and can't play both safety spots like our other Safties.

-Gano is not a bad kicker, he would have possibly been a pretty 35-41 if it wasnt for the blocks last year. Plus, he has a stronger, younger leg on kickoffs than ol' Rackers.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

tanard is better than gomes, paul is probably a better blocker than cooley.

we also need to see who gets cut by other teams during their cutdowns. every now and then there are a couple guys worth grabbing.

Who really gives a crap?..if Grossman ends up in a game...he will just close his eyes and throw will full confidence and authority to wherever he feels like it. It doesn't really matter where the receivers or defenders are anyways. Why worry about giving him reps..it wont change a thing!

Just thinking until Cousins is our #2 for good, Grossman could use the PT, but y'all have a point.

Hightower will play Saturday and solidify himself the starting RB.

I don't know. A lot of people were impressed with his play last season. I'm just not a believer. I like his slot being used for some veteran wisdom, but I feel like the starting job will go to one of the other three.

Morris could be a darkhorse in that race. Granted he keeps his production up. Looking forward to seeing him get a lot of reps with the first team.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

While TH had a good last preseason; he fell off during the regular season. I do like his work ethic, his passion, and dedication; but as a runner, he's average and pretty pedestrian. TH will start because of his leadership, pass blocking, and Shanny's affinity for TH. He'll probably (70% chance) start against NO, but I seriously doubt he'll be the starter WK 17 even if he's healthy; though I do believe he'll have a decent game Saturday night.

Re: 2012 53 man Roster predictions

By the way, speaking of our roster, I didn't appreciate that Sav Rocca, our Aussie punter, is 6'5", 263 lbs. He's bigger than Orakpo! That's crazy. Forget roughing the kicker, it would be tempting to see our kicker pound the snot out of some lightweight special teams guy coming off the edge. At that size, he might punt the ball and the incoming defender.

I like Tim Hightower, but his yards per carry average last season up until the point where he was lost for the season concerns me even now. He has to average more than 4.0 yards per carry. He only averaged 3.8 yards on rushes and that to me isn't very impressive. I would like to see Royster win the job because Royster finished the year with a 5.9 yard per carry average which is highly impressive.
