Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

i'm not sure 4 TEs are a lock. that's just a lot of bodies at TE.

no way we keep two FBs on the 53 man either.


i think kimbrough might have a shot with robinson's injury at least the PS.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

I don't think Wilson is a bubble guy. I think he's earned his spot over the years (somehow) unless someone else steps up and makes him look like a warm body. Unfortunately, I'm not yet convinced that Biggers is consistently better than Wilson.

Note: Not that Biggers would get cut (obviously) but that Biggers would push Wilson onto the bubble.

I see the CB Lineup as being something like

Hall
Amerson
Biggers
Wilson

Crawford/Minnifield worked into there somehow.

My personal feeling on it is we have a ton of young guys and I wish they'd kick Wilson to the curb now and let Crawford and Minnifield step up in dime packages this year. Kick Hall to the curb and let Amerson be #1 next year.

Who's your weak link at TE?

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

paul as a WR/H-back/non blocker is a joke. 10 catches for 177 yards in 2 years... not good.

I think we keep davis as lock, and we're not going to PS a 3rd round pick, so he's safe. the other guys... I mean, we could keep both, but i don't think it's a lock, that's all.


the good news is there's only about 5-6 spots to talk about.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

What are the odds Nick Barnette and Lance Lewis make this team. I think Lewis has a ton of potential, great hands, and good size. Barnette can be insurance for Fletcher.

Thoughts of these guys making the team?

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

People who matter love Paul, and that's ultimately all that matters. He's definitely shown improvement this summer. And his special teams experience and play is arguably the best on the team, with Alexander gone.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

I DO get the love for Paul. He's our 3rd string TE. THIRD. There aren't a lot of 3rd string TEs (or any 3rd stringers anywhere) pushing to make the pro-bowl. At that spot you're looking for a guy who fits the scheme and gives you a little something. He clearly fits what we like to do, plays mad STs, and knows the offense. I'm not sure what the "better" option is.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

And technically the vast majority don't make it. Especially those whose position starts with "3rd string"

yeah, and how many has he been to?

i mean seriously, what's your point? that he's a 3rd stringer that hasn't been to a pro-bowl, and that's supposed to be impressive in some way?

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

When we project the roster, I think that we sometimes get hung up on the position list which causes us to pigeon-hole the more versatile players. Specifically, I'm referring to Jordan Reed and the debate about how many TE's and WR's the Skins will keep.

I think the answer to this quandry is Jordan Reed. IMO, he is a true TE/WR hybrid. He reminds me of one of my favorite NFL players, Anquan Boldin. The Skins should be able to split him wide where he can overpower CB's the way Anquan does or keep him in tight where he can work against safeties. In essence, by having Jordan on the roster, I think the Skins will have both a 4th TE and a 6th WR in the same person. Isn't that one of the reasons that teams seek out versatile players?

Perhaps we'll learn more about how the Skins plan to use Reed and what he capable of doing in the next exhibition game.

I could be wrong but I think where he is going is that Paul stands a chance to make the pro bowl just like LoAx did, as a special teamer. LoAx was never the greatest positional player, yet very few wanted to lose him. He had value even as a non starter. Also in Pauls case, his main issue is catching the ball. And by most accounts, he is doing a much better job in TC doing that. If he can catch the ball, he can cause match up problems for defenses. Bigger than most safeties and faster than most LB's.

Re: Predict the 2013 53 Man Opening Day Roster

but davis is a better version of that at TE/catching. i don't think paul is really much of a threat outside of blocking, at least not from anything he's shown so far.

and getting a pro bowl is a lot different than having a few of your team's fans thinking you might be able to get one.

it just feels like more pre-season overhype. Zo showed a lot more versatility and production. he earned his contract. maybe paul will too, but so far, he's only shown decent blocking ability and some special teams work. Zo did that and played some OG, DL and LB pretty decently... and Zo's teams stuff made some highlight reels too.
