Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

I just finished watching the game I recorded it earlier today. I like what I saw from Pat White. Grossman did have a nice game but do we keep him as insurance? Pat White has something about him I just think we need to find a way to keep him this year. If we do intend to trade Kirk this offseason then we should release Grossman and keep Pat White.
As for the RB position I think the surprise is we keep Keiland Williams and either trade or release Royster. Williams can do the same things as Royster but he can also play FB. I think Chris Thompson may make the 53 man roster as RB/PR/KR. Jamison will be signed to the PS.
The WR position is set with Garcon,Hankerson,Morgan,Moss,and Robinson. I think they may keep Briscoe or Lewis , whoever is the better special teams player.
I don't see us cutting Josh Wilson we have to many young guys already back there.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

I think McRib is out. He definitely gets manhandled at the POA and is damn near useless on the second level. I think he has the talent and build but he's either lazy or not motivated.

Sucks to see Crawford go. Minnifield and Biggers both make roster I think and play nickel/slot.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

It's too bad White can't go to the practice squad. I still think he's too limited as a passer to keep over Rex. But I will say for a guy who's been out of football he's played well, he has some value as a read option QB but I don't think he sticks here.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

Buffalo ought to at least be making inquiries to the Redskins about PW. They are the type of team that would benefit from having him in as a 2nd/3rd qb, and we know Kolb is about useless if he gets hit a couple times.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

How about the Jets? They should be banging down our door for a trade.

We could end up with a Dallas <vomit> Triplets type trade that sets us up for a decade.

If only Rex could swing us a 1st 2nd and one of his multitude of first round DT's; pick one.

Daydream done lol

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

Haha to the people suggesting Wilson would be cut. David Amerson has been borderline pathetic during the pre-season.

Wilson has been one of the best bargain FA signings in recent years. Cutting him and assuming Biggers/Amerson can suddenly cover would be a huge mistake. Especially since the other guy (DHall) is infamous for his cover skills, or lack there of.

Pat White will be gone, he's bad.
Grossman will be gone, he wastes a roster spot.
Stallworth will be gone, the heartwarming return is over.
LeRibeus will be gone, Matthews replaced him as backup C and frankly he sucks.
Niles Paul hopefully will be gone, We've seen more out of Reed in 2 weeks than Paul in 2 years.
Gomes hopefully will be gone, I'm shocked he's still here. Nothing but terrible coverage from that guy since day 1.

Jamison goes to the PS.

Thompson makes the team as 4th RB.

Chase Minnifield is playing better than Amerson right now, it will take a little while for Amerson to learn.

I honestly don't know if Amerson could have been any worse. He's been laughably bad out there.

He and LeRibeus are starting a short list of Shanahan draft busts.

It would be nice if they were desperate and waited until after our Tampa game and offered a 6th round pick or so, but I don't expect the Bills or Jets to be willing to trade or lose a draft pick after drafting a QB to be future starters just for a 2nd or 3rd string guy. Probably both those teams aren't picky to have either Rex or PW and will wait for us to release them both.

Does Bruce dig deep and talk about Byrd coming over and would that solve the safety issues we have? I think we can't afford any more than what we already have though.
Possible?

Wait, you guys think Pat White has value? He's a 27 year old with zero accuracy and his only NFL highlight was getting knocked out.

Tanard Jackson would fix that issue if he stays clean after being reinstated.

Amerson hasn't even played a regular season game yet, might want to pump the brakes on labeling him a bust just yet. I don't think he's been that bad. He's had his ups and downs. Like a rookie usually does.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

Amerson has gotten good grades from folks who get paid to know these things. Not outstanding, but good. He's a rookie and is going to make mistakes but, by all accounts has belongs and may challenge for a starting spot somewhere in the not too distant future. From what I have seen, he's been decent and has flashed some really good moments.

Re: Final Cuts Looming - any surprises on the horizon

Amerson has many more rookie mistakes to make. But such is required for his long-term development. Same goes for Rambo. They're like puppies - you have to put up with some chewed shoes if you want them to turn into awesome dogs.
