I think i did a pretty good job. I'm just not sure about the secondary. They could decide to keep Ratliff and cut either Mundy or Madison

I left Bailey off but I doubt any other team picks him up so if there is an inury, we can just call him up to play

QB: Agree

RB: Agree

FB: I think Summers could overtake Davis

WR: Agree

TE: If McHugh is out for an extended amount of time like some believe, Johnson is on this team.

O-Line: Agree

D-Line: Kirschke will be kept one way or another. Probably at the expense of Bruce Davis at LB'er.

DB: Ratliff will make the roster as your 53rd player

ST: Agree

P.S.: Grisham broke his collerbone, so he is out. I would be willing to bet that McClendon and Bailey would be signed elsewhere.

Does anyone know for sure if the number three QB counts against the game day 53? For some reason I have the idea that he does not and is only activated due to injury, which would open up one more spot.

the roster is 53 players, on gameday you dress 45.

the 3rd qb does count for the 53, but doesn't count for the 45

This is exactly how I would have it too.

Nice job.

Let's hope Tomlin sees it the same way.

Eason is a quality player, but it's a numbers game and Sonny Harris has a chance to develop into something far better than Eason ever will. It's between Eason and Kirschke. Kirschke may go due to his age.

Roy Lewis to the practice squad.

That means Ratliff is the odd man out to get it down to 53.

With Burnett and Roy on the PS, Ratliff becomes very expendable.

Could we get a 6th or 7th rounder for Ratliff in a trade?

Actually you dont have 52...you have 55...you started your count 1,2,3 with the QBs..then started over again with 1,2,3, etc with the RBs...so your 52 count started with the RBs and doesnt include the QBs

QB: Roethlisberger, Batch, Dixon

HB: Parker, Mendenhall, Moore, Redman, Summers

WR: Holmes, Ward, Sweed, Wallace, McDonald

TE: Millers, Spaeth, McHugh (depending on injury, if he goes to IR then Johnson makes it)

OL: Starks, Kemo, Hartwig, Essex, Colon, Hills, Urbik, Legursky, Foster (I was thinking Capizzi for Foster also...or if they keep 10 Capizzi will make it)

DL: Smith, Hampton, Keisel, Hoke, Hood, Eason, Harris (Its a toss up between Kirschke and Harris...Harris could end up on the PS)

LB: Harrison, Timmons, Farrior, Woodley, Fox, Harrison, Bailey, Frazier (I only put Frazier due to the Woods injury...Wood could still make it though)

CB: Taylor, Gay, Townsend, Ratliff, Lewis, Burnett

S: Polamalu, Clark, Mundy

ST: Reed, Sepulveda, Warren, Logan


PS: Shipley, B. Davis, Johnson (if McHugh is OK), McLendon, Reilly, Sherrod, Woods (depending on his injury), Capizzi (Foster could go here also) and the last spot could be for Vincent or even Nance...not sure.

To make room for Logan I only kept 8 LBs...I personally wouldnt want to keep 1 less WR for him like some do...as he hasnt proven he can catch a pass yet, and McDonald is too good to let go, and they need a Vet behind Holmes/Ward. Also i kept only 3 Safeties, as Townsend, Ratliff and Lewis can play S if needed. I could be a couple off, Harris could go to the PS in favor of Kirschke, and C. Davis could still beat out Summers...but this is what I would do if i was in charge i guess!

Yeah, I can only see Ratliff staying if he comes with a good price. The veteran experience and versatility would be nice, but we're not exactly in dire need of his talents.

So then who would you have as the 3rd QB? And you never say never - the Pats* had to scramble to find a backup after Brady went down, because Cassel was the only other QB on the roster. You take a gamble when you only go with 2 QBs.

And Dixon is versatile enough to actually contribute on gadget plays. He didn't play last year because he was a true rookie, I would have been surprised to have seen him used last season, this season I almost expect it.

I agree for the most part, but wonder a couple of things. 1. Does the tank make it through wavers? Sure, he ain't good enough this year to sit on the 53 man squad (least right now). But think about the bottom feeders of the league. Could he find a place with the Raiders, The Chiefs, etc. etc. who are struggling to STOP cutting at 53?

I wonder, if the coaching staff is worried about that too, did Redmon's play tonight kick Davis off the team? I DIDN'T expect to See redmon play that way.

So two questions--- Does the Tank make it through waivers, and if not, and he is kept on the 53 man roster, does that spell the end of Davis? Because in shear running ability, Redmon is MUCH better than Davis.

I agree with this 53 as the probable. I wonder (and hope) if they cut Davis at fullback and then either keep Summers at FB or Johnson at TE, since McHugh is really a fullback in our offense. Much probably depends on the extent of McHugh's injury.

If he is healthy enough, and he can run with the ball, I wouldn't mind that at all. I said somewhere else (or was it here? Who knows anymore) that It think he better blocker. But I don't know about carrying the ball.

I do like the flexibility that gives us. Line up three TE's and a halfback like MeMo. Until just before the snap, you don't know if you are going to have to defend against the run with a FB blocking, or defend against 5 receivers, as all the TE's and MeMo can catch the ball.

(and for those who are about to jump on my about my Davis thread...check yourself. That thread was ONLY about the point that Davis is NOT as bad as people make him out to be. NOT that he is a very good FB.... average in blocking --I have been saying that all along).

Davis isnt getting cut. McHugh might not make it because of injury and Johnson could get his spot.

The others in question are McDonald, Ratliff and Madison. We have depth at WR and CB, now just have to see if the staff wants to go with youth or experience.

Ready to start the season!

I feel strongly that Ratliff sees the Turk today. He was brought in as veteran insurance but the rookie class is good enough to let Ratliff walk.

Madison is in. He's a Tomlin pet and a valuable gunner on punts.

McDonald is in too, if I could read Tomlin's mind.

Can we all just dance in the streets today if Summers beats out Davis for the FB spot ... !!!!

funny, lots of talk but what do we really miss if we are setup like this.

Parker
Mendy
Moore
Redman
Summers FB

will we lose a game because of the two new young guys at 4 and 5 and not have Davis. i dont think so..

if the number 1-3 rb's can handle everything, we just need blocking.
so we really dont need redman..

if davis and summers block better than redman, logic would say we need those two more than redman to block for the top three RB's we have.

redman is a bonus RB.. unless redman blocks real well. then davis is gone.

i can possibly see carter getting cut if they think that mundy is the real deal... mundy played good last nite to make them think..

also since they are keeping logan and he is listed as a wr.. i think mcdonald will be cut.. he is a good wr but we don't need him.. he is a possesion wr. and we alrdy have that.. and when we do go 5 wide.. miller is usally the out there w/ the 4 wr's..

Great list Gonzo.

Noitce you already put the disclaimer for McHugh/Johnson. I really watched Johnson last night, and while the kid was ok, I would probably agree that if McHugh were healthy, he would be the better choice.

Also like you updated Davis LB spot to A.Harrison. That guy always seems to come up big when the pressure is on.

As far as Summers goes, I thought he was going to really need some good plays to push C.Davis out, but that has yet to be seen. Although, I believe Davis went out with an injury last night also, so who knows. As far as him clearing waivers to go to the PS, we probably could have had the best FB in the draft at that point. I think everyone else was evaluating him as a RB, so I think he would clear.

EDIT: So does anyone know the exacts for PS timeline? 53 man rosters are made by Sat @ 11am, so practice squad gets signed as early as 12 am Sunday? So something like a 13 hour wait of uncertainty.

Dixon has actually looked damn good this preseason before his injury! Reilly to the PS.

I agree with El-Gonzo's list, aside from Davis being one of the RBs.

I was under the impression that as of July 5th, all players who are cut/released go on waivers for 24 hours. After that period of time they are free agents and can sign with any team - whether it be to the regular 53-man roster or to the practice squad.

In other words the first step is to see if another team claims a player on waivers. If another team claims the player off waivers there's nothing the Steelers can do to stop that; he's gone. Then once the player clears waivers, they can be signed to the practice squad. 12 am Sunday would be too soon; if 12 am is the exact moment (I don't know if it is or is not) then it would be one day later.
