Re: Updated Depth Chart... some interesting things note..

s omar brown was cut by the ravens. everyone in the organization seemed to be high on him and the cut came as some what of a surprise.

he has been with the team for a few years so im guessing they cut him now instead of waiting until the 53 to give him a chance to sign on with a new team asap.

i hope we add a vet FS to play behind clark and who can step in and play SS if rambo isnt ready.

I would love to have Portis on the staff. He's one of my all time favorite NFL players.

He not only knew how to pass protect but he had the desire to be the best at it. Does any of these other guys have the desire to be a good pass protector? I don't think Portis can give any of them his desire.

I'm not satisfied with any of the backup RB's beyond Helu.

Chris Thompson is supposed to be explosive but he hasn't proven it. He's pretty much useless between the tackles and he can't pass protect.

Royster has had a good preseason but we all know that he is pedestrian.

Redd looks like he has potential but he's not ready.

Seastrunk is very raw.

Other than Helu, I really wouldn't mind if the Skins cut all of them and picked up somebody else.

Well, if the Merriweather suspension doesnt change we will see Rambo starting. Gruden said that in his press conference.

With what he has shown this camp/preseason and his endorsement by the coaching staff and players...he deserves it. This BM suspension silver lining could be Rambo emergence as a servicable safety. We just dont have alot of depth behind either guys, need to add someone imo.

This probably means Gruden is a little doubtful that the news on Thomas will be good. I don't think he would declare Rambo the outright starter at SS if he thought Thomas would be able to play, especially since SS isn't Rambo's natural position.

Re: Updated Depth Chart... some interesting things note..

As to running back, I think Royster has made the most of his chances. Not sure if he played with the first team but I think he has done well in his blocking assignments and catching passes out of the backfield. I initially wrote him off as "pedestrian" also but think his pedestrian play has outperformed Helu's sloppy play.

No, he is not a potential "playmaker," but he is a potential "yard-getter/block-maker" which is more than you can say for Helu at this point. I don't know what's been happening in practice but it seems to me that Royster has gotten more snaps than an afterthought should. It's hard to say goodbye to Helu's potential speed but it's not like we don't have speed elsewhere. If we need the yards, need the blitz picked up, who do you trust more based on what you have seen so far in preseason: Helu or Royster? I'm thinking Royster. I say that fully understanding his limitations. Still, better to move the chains and preserve the opportunity for someone to make a big play than to blow the read/block/run and punt away.

I really think Royster has a shot and that he is in a competition with Helu - one or the other makes it. Similarly, Thompson and Seastrunk are an either or duo also. One makes it, one goes to our PS - although if Thompson doesn't make it, he may just be cut outright. I think Redd is PS material this year.

Just how I am seeing it right now. Before training camp, I thought Helu a lock and Royster a goner. Just not as sure of that right now. I think Royster had a long way to go to even make it a competition but that he has done just that.

I will still be surprised if Royster makes it and Helu is cut - just not shocked. Also, if Helu is cut, I bet he is claimed pretty damn quick. Not so for Royster.

Re: Updated Depth Chart... some interesting things note..

Royster making the final roster wouldn't be a big surprise, but Helu not making it would be.

Unless Thompson has a huge game tonight, I think they might waive him and hope he clears so he can be sent to the practice squad. Playmakers can't make plays if they're at home all the time. Staying healthy and how well he plays on special teams tonight will probably play a significant part in deciding if he stays.

Seastrunk, meanwhile, has been solid, but most of his playing time so far has come in the 4th quarters of games. I hope he gets a lot of playing time tonight.

I don't think both Royster and Redd make the final roster since neither have big speed... one or none. Obviously I don't know how Gruden will decide on which backs to keep, but if Royster and Redd are battling for a spot, I think the more experienced Royster wins. Redd is waived and hopefully sent to the squad.

If I had to guess, I would say the final roster carries these 5: Morris, Young, Helu, Seastrunk, and Royster.

I still dont think Royster makes it.

I would definitely keep Thompson over Royster if I knew he would stay healthy.

So it sounds like Thomas' foot re-injury wasn't serious. Whew.

There's hope still for PT, KI Skins!
