OK...while my 53 list is not shocking, I did make some controversial moves like cutting Urbik, Dwyer, David Johnson, Summers, Logan, Anthony Madison, Patrick Bailey and Crezdon Butler. I may be wrong on half of these...but you have to gamble. lol

Ultimately the preseason games will decide between :

Logan, Arnez Battle, and Antonio Brown.
David Johnson and McHugh
Urbik and Legursky
Dwyer, Wright, and Redman

I agree with all the starters, but I think ARE will be the 3rd receiver, at least to start the year. Sanders would really have to outshine ARE completely. Sanders is having a nice camp. but Ive heard Randel El has looked good too.

I think you have it pretty darn close. They may not keep 5 DEs and it comes down to Eason or Harris as the 4th. Somehow I think Dwyer will be in the mix at RB. I don't know if Antonio Brown will be the last WR or will they keep Grisham? And they really seem to like Johnson as the H-back over McHough. But these are all bubble guys and anything can happen to change the mix ... including injuries.

I worry about not having Bailey and Madison as they were good ST guys and we have to have an improvement in that area. But 53 adds up pretty fast so who else would you cut? Glad I don't have to make that call!

I have a feeling you are right about that...not because ARE is better but rather out of respect. It is easier to explain to a rookie why he is not getting the 3rd spot.

I hope however that Sanders does beat ARE so I must admit that was one spot where I put my hopes over what is likely.

I know...53 fills up fast. lol I wish I could keep Logan because it gives me peace of mind to have a guy that does both KR and PR and you don't really have to worry about speed, fumbling or if he will get injured. Even though I have players like Antonio Brown making the team, he can't do KR because he will be inactive. I only put him on the roster to protect him. I was hoping Arnez Battle would not be good so we could take Logan instead but I hear he has been good and in sync with Ben (at least 3TDs).

About Dwyer...I was rooting for im after the draft but I think he needs a year to develop now. Once they added Wright (OL coach's friend) his chances went down. I hope he can spend a year on the PS and nobody steals him. I just don't see them cutting Wright. He is lucky he has the title of FB. The only thing that can save Dwyer is if either Redman or Wright have fumbling problems.

We have an awesome team developing and we have no more room for those ST only guys. We need to have Worilds, Gibson, Fox, Foote, Sylvester, Burnette, and some of those other guys step up. I was hoping to keep Crezdon Butler because I know he likes special teams but I had forgotten about the LS and had to go back and add him. Too bad centers can't learn to LS...waste of a spot (I know the motion is different etc).

That was a tough one for me too. If Essex is so good, maybe they should try Pouncey out at center. I know in addition to the play calling he would have to actually practice close snaps (did mostly shotgun at Florida). IDK. Faneca used to call line changes. If Kemo know the line well, maybe he can call it for a year.

With Hood, it sounds like they will do this rotation thing that Smith and Keisel are open to. Hopefully they will be less tired in the 4th (Smith admits they get tired). I think that eventually one of them will get injured and Hood will win a spot.

Looks like Pouncey will backup C/G to start, so no need for another backup C/G like Legursky. Lose him and add Crezdon Butler. Coaches seem to like him. Also wouldn't be surprised if Dwyer makes the team. Colbert said Wright is more of a RB that plays FB. Sounds like another Redman. I think Redman beats him out and Dwyer makes it too. I also wouldn't count out Worthington. Might com down to him vs Harris and/or Eason.

Good point. If Pouncey does not start it might work out that way. I wanted to keep 9 OL so I had the tough decision of taking Legursky over Urbik. Tomlin also said Legursky has a quickness where he can be be used as a fullback.

Crezdon Butler was my last cut because I had to make space for a long snapper. My 2 guys that just missed are logan and Butler. I'd like to keep Logan.

BTW. Fraizer got so lucky with the IR. He was not going to make the team.

I somehow think they find a way to keep Batch on the team but I could be wrong.

Batch will make the team until Ben gets back. Steelers are allowed to carry a player in Ben's roster spot until he returns from suspension. Once he returns one of the QB's got to go. No need for 4.

It's too complicated. I don't think so. The could work an inside deal with one of the rookies though promising to cut Batch and promote the rookie when Ben comes back if they agree to stick to the practice squad.

They have given Batch no reps. lol Does Ben have to count against the 53 for sure?

I think Leftwich goes. Batch plays an important role in helping with the QB's. Byron is only needed for short period and if he is let go no one else is going to pick him up. So if someone gets hurt we can sign him again.

lol. No way. Leftwich is insurance. He is the back up QB for the next 2 years.

Dixon has shown to be the sloppy type of QB that has been misreading plays and throwing interceptions. I think not playing has hurt him. He would have been better off spending the past 2 years doing Arena football (other than leaning the playbook). It's a shame.

Batch is done...Broadcast, here we come. The tough part is he is part of the NFLPA.

If Dixon was good and he was the future, I could see letting Leftwich go but he is not. The Steelers should release Dixon aster this year (or maybe offer a 1 year RFA tender). The should keep Leftwich and look for a third young arm to develop.

I thought more guys would share their 53. After the first guy, itos easy because all you have to do is cut and paste and modify.

SteelKnight
08-13-2010, 11:42 PM
I read now that Jonathan Scott has been terrible so even though he is the OL coach's boy, he might not make the cut. How he plays in preseason will be key.

If he doesn't make it, I would have to decide whether i would put in the ninth OL or use the spot for someone like Logan or Crezdon Butler.

If Pouncey can step into RG as a starter, I feel comfortable having only Essex and Foster as the reserve G/T with Legursky being inactive and only used if there is an injury to Hartwig.

I really would like Urbik to move on because he is too far on the depth chart. He can't beat Pouncey, Essex or Foster at guard...time to move on.

We need secondary help bad ! We have all seen the Bengals and Ravens upgrade the WR positon and we didnt do much to improve at all there , so I see that as an area of need ! Another one would be the WR position that we have NO dominant player at. Hines is always consistant , but wallace needs another compliment like last year to be able to stand out. There isnt another standout on this team and it dont matter who is throwing the ball if they dont have the talent to get open. The running game will be dominant !

For CB, I ear Lewis is coming along well. The only way these players will get any better is to play them.

For WR, both Sanders and Brown have looked good. I am sincerely oping Sanders surpasses ARE. We will get to see both Sanders and Brown tonight!

Seems like FB is Tank's job to lose.

No room for another specialist like Logan, imo.

I wouldn't be shocked if they kept 9 O-Lineman and 6 D-Lineman. I also wouldn't be shocked by what I predicted with 8 O-Lineman and 7 D-Lineman.

Harris vs Worthington and Scott vs Hills are very close. I'd want to see more preseason games before pulling the trigger and giving one a roster spot over the other.

I originally had 9 linemen...then I found out that Jonathan Scott has been doing poorly.

I don't like Tank. Some neat things about him is he's short, he has a cool nickname and he is culturally unique. That's it. I think because of these things, people see more than there is there. If they don't like Wright and they insist on someone for that position, I'd rather have them keep both David Johnson and Sea McHugh. In fact, they should just change Johnsons designation. He's too short for a TE. Just call him a FB.

Tank won't make it.

I see Worthington going to the PS for a year.

Surprises:

Pouncey over Hartwig: The coaches must have noticed something in Pouncey after the first preseason game. He's taken snaps entirely with the second team, at guard and center, until Monday when he split time with Hartwig at center with the first team. I'd like to see him start at RG, since Hartwig is better at center than Essex is at guard, but it seems like the future is now for Pouncey at center.

Anthony Madison: as dreadful as the special teams played last year, I'd have a hard time cutting the best coverage guy on this team. Unless the special teams coverage has gotten tremendously better with the new rookie additions. In that case - I'd add Butler.

Antonio Brown: You have to put this guy on the team. He's a star waiting in the wings. He returns kicks instead of Logan.

Jonathan Dwyer: He's not having a great camp or preseason so far, but the Steelers were really high on him and they won't give up that easy. We can't take the chance of him not clearing waivers. Plus, we're pretty thin at RB anyway.

Kraig Urbik: Third round pick with high hopes, but less than expected results. Give him one more year.

Fun review. Our 53 isn't much different. You added Summers and Dwyer over Dwayne Wright and you made room for the extra person by cuting Eason (DE).

You took Urbik over Legursky.

You also chose Madison over Crezdon Butler. I hear the coaches all really like Butler. I don't see both Madison and Battle both making the team.

Placing Pouncey at center might be right. Remember I did my list before the first game. If this happens, you might be right about Urbik over Legursky. I was thinking he would take the guard spot and since Essex and Foster are both capable back ups at G/T (better than Urbik), I saw no need for Urbik. A back up center who has the ability to play fullback seemed intriging to me (Legursky). If Pouncey gets center, you don't need 2 back up centers.

I'm finished with Summers. I think he is short, culturally unique and has a cool nickname but those are the only interesting things about him. I'd keep Dwyer over him (and I cut Dwyer). I agree I'd like to find some way to put Dwyer back on the team but I don't feel comfortable cutting the DE to 4 like you did. They get injured too often. Since Worthington will be on the PS, it might be OK. They could always move him up. It depends on how much they believe in Harris. I don't think you cut Harris but if Eason is better, I believe you have to keep both.

By the way, Urbik never looked good...even at the senior bowl drills. I think the pick was mainly to satisfy the panicking fans. They kept talking about Urbik starting. I'll never forget those drills. He looked terrible.

Now let's wait to see Dan's. lol

You're probably right about Battle and Madison. They're both pretty good on ST coverage, so we may only need to keep one. If that's the case, Battle makes it. He has more to offer on offense than Madison does on defense. Can't Battle return punts as well?

Butler looks good, and part of me hopes he makes the team. Our secondary is really starting to look talented the whole way through, with a lot of depth. For a position that was assumed to be a weakness heading into the draft, our CBs look really impressive. I'm glad they didn't succumb to the impulse of drafting a CB really high, although that's not what I was saying on draft day. That's why I don't have Kevin Colbert's job, I guess. lol.

I'm finished with Summers. I think he is short, culturally unique and has a cool nickname but those are the only interesting things about him.

I disagree. I like Summers. He's a pretty well-rounded back, and he has the best potential as a fullback, if Arians ever decides to use one. I'm not concerned about his size, either. It seems like shortness is becoming an asset for RBs with the emergence of Ray Rice and Maurice Jones-Drew - to name a couple. Shorter running backs have a lower center of gravity, so they're harder to bring down, and defenders can't sight them as quick because they hide behind their lineman.

Could you imagine lining up Frank the Tank and Isaac 'Redzone' Redman in the I formation in short yardage situations? It makes my mouth water.

Also, Summers caught a pass for a first down in the preseason game. Seems like Arians could add a little wrinkle in his short yardage set.

With Summers, i just don't see it but Bouchette sees Summers making it and he would know. I'd rather have Dwyer over Summers. Dwyer has potential and can develop. I don't see us holding 5 backs. I see it as a 10 thing so if we have 6 WR, we can only keep 4 backs. I liked the confident talk of Wright. Too bad he's been sick or whatever. I wanted to see what he can do.

With Summers I feel like he doesn't want to be a fullback. He is really a heavy HB that will say he will do whatever it takes but it is not in his heart. Why not put Legursky or McHugh out there if it is in their hearts to block? I really like the idea of Legursky at FB.

No way in Hell Crezdon Butler doesn't make the squad. He has been one of the best DB's in camp. And very versatile to. Trust me, if they tried to place him on the PS, several teams would take him, and probably make him a starter by week 5...he is that good.

Pouncey, Worilds, Sanders, Gibson & probably Brown are locks. I hope they find room for Butler & Sylvester too but no guarantees. I think both will get snatched up pretty fast if they're waived. I hope we can sneak Dwyer, Worthington & Chris Scott, on the practice squad, but I doubt Dwyer or Worthington will go unclaimed all year. Scott should be safe given his injuries etc.

that is my final 53

Notable omissions:

Spaeth -Spaeth will make the team. It is the 3rd TE spot up for grabs.

Crezdon Butler -coaches are loving him. Even Bouchette doesn't think e would clear wavers.

Stevenson Sylvester -They think he has some talent. He may not clear wavers if cut.

Doug Worthington - I left him off too but they are saying he looks good. Who knows? maybe they give him Eason's spot if he is THAT good. I figured they wanted some experience in case both Smith and Keisel go down (one would obviously be covered by Hood). Eason has filled in before.

I'm glad to hear that. I've heard the coaches like him. I updated my list to add him but you can't change the first post. Bouchette agrees he would not clear wavers.

It sounds like we had a hell of a draft right? lol So much talent. It's great. I'm starting to get nervous about Worthington making PS too.

I think these are locks:
1.Pouncey 2. Worilds, 3. Sanders 4. Gibson. 5. Butler 5. Sylvester 6.Brown

Maybe:
6.Dwyer (I think he needs a year of PS)

PS:
5. Scott 7.Worthington (hopefully can clear)

Well my thought is that if Butler makes the final 53 then they probably end up getting rid of Burnett or Gay.

Ive read that Sly has been great also but I dont know if they will keep him.

Also what makes you think that Spaeth is a lock ? IMO he hasnt done anything that gives him a roster spot.

I don't tink they will cut either Gay or Burnett. They said they were pleased with the development of Burnett (but ways to go) but Gay is still running first team Nickel. So Gay will make it.

Spaeth is a lock. It is too bad the Steelers haven't used Spaeth more in the Red Zone or for passes. He had 4 TDs early in his rookie year before he got injured. Throw to him and if he drops it, cut back. Maybe he's just not hable to get separation. He was a good receiver in college. Either way, it is McHugh and Johnson who are expendable. In fact, the team could do without both.

Sly is in. lol

Update notes: Cut Legursky and Eason :( It was really tough but I needed to make space for Dwyer (who I down't believe would clear waivers) and Jonathan Scott (for Insurance since Flozell has been playing poorly).

Also Pouncey moving to 1st string hurt Legursky since Hartwig would then be back up center. Unlike others who say Hartwig would be the casulaty this year, I don't believe that. He is first string for a reason and has been the starter for 2 years. If Legursky was a legitimate to replace him, it would have been an open comp with him. Even if Pouncy gets the starting spot, he could be injured at any time and I think you want your experienced player who Ben is used to taking over.

I had to cut Eason for youth. It's a gamble but it is time for Hood and Harris to step up and claim theirs. Hood is doing it. Worthington will be developing.

Logan is not eligible for the PS

I would be happy with this team. We absolutely can't risk letting Sylvester, Butler, and Dwyer get claimed, (we have to see if Dwyer developes) even if it means keeping 9 LBs, 10 DBs, and 5 RBs. Nice squad SteelKnight. I hope this the team Tomlin goes with.

Thanks.

Legursky and Eason were tough cuts for loyal Steelers but the bottom line is they are not essential. There is not much development hope in them either. It was the right choice.

I will miss Logan. The Steelers will cut him last because they have to make sure Brown doesn't get injured. For some reason, I am always calm with Logan (even though he just fumbled/bobbled) returning while the others stress me out. Maybe I'm worried about fumbles or injuries. Peace of mind be damned. Brown will get better with experience (with this ST).

I am nervous about having only 4 DE instead of the usual 5 and 8OL instead of the usual 9.

Some of these 2nd strings need to play better ST because they cannot depend on the 3rd team. The Steelers will have to inactivate 8 for game day and i had such a tough time doing that because of ST.This means they cannot depend on Sylvester, for example. He may be inactive. You don't need 5 ILBs active per game.

Just for fun, I'm gonna take a shot at inactives (assuming no injuries).

1. Batch (3rd QB)...eventually Dixon (3rd QB)...which means they will not be able to use him for special packages.
2. Sanders -like the guy but can't have 6 active WR Brown and Battle playing ST
3. Summers -great he made the team but Redman can play FB until someone gets injured.
4. Dwyer -where he'll be all season long developing.
5. Jonathan Scott -only Flozelle's play helps im make the team.
6. Harris -take chances wit 3 DE
7. Sylvester - don't need 5 ILBs active.
8. Burnett - I hear Buttler plays good ST. Whichever "B" plays better ST stays active.

They may be able to keep 4DE active, or activate Summers or Sanders by deactivating Ryan Mundy. A lot of this active duty stuff depends on ST play,

I never really liked Logan, but I think that was just because he was NEVER utilized as anything but a returner...it just seems like a waste to me to save a roster spot for a designated return guy who's not being used for anything else when you can just have an actual WR/RB/CB return in addition to their positional duties and have an extra roster spot for a promising rookie...the fact he didnt take any to the house last year after preseason didnt help either. I can understand if he was Hester or Cribbs or something, but hes not...

I dont think we should keep Summers either, just play Redman at FB, especially since Arians is so bent on not using a "true" FB anyway...on a completely unrelated note, Summers has the rattiest looking dreads Ive ever seen...

So our teams differ in me keeping Dwyer, McHugh, and Sunny Harris and you keeping Legursky, David Johnson, and Worthington.

I could see it going your way. I just am afraid that Dwyer won't clear waivers. If we gave Sweed time to develop, we should give Dwyer time (I know lower pick).

McHugh and Johnson is toss up. I heard DJ was struggling at camp.

I like Worthington too but dumping Harris is risky (we saw last year). It could happen though. We'll see.

Logan will on a roster the next day if we cut him.

That's probably true...within a couple of days. The problem is we hve too much developmental talent to allow a special teams only player. Many teams are like we used to be.

Gone are the days of Fraizer, Woods, Bailey, Madison, Arnold Harrison and Logan. None of those had future potential as a player. The Steelers new philosophy will be to actually be developing talent behind the Starters. To that end, we have some fine WRs, fine CBs, and fine LBs to develop.

Redmen gets down there early on special teams...he is so much a lock. I'm glad he was patient and didn't get too disappointed after not making it last year. Too many times in life, people quit after being disappointed. He wasn't drafted, didn't make the cut and now he's back to shine talent. Goodell got rejected by all NFL teams as an intern and now look at him. Obama lost a run for HOR and now look at him. It is OK to fail and get back in there. Good message for kids.

I'm almost there but not quite. If he stays injured then he will be PS. If he shows any promise in the last 2 games, he will be in.

When I say in, I mean as a protected player. He would be inactive the whole year. We've had protected players in the past...Sweed, Urbik, Davis, Hills, etc. I know they were higher picks but there is still a chance they may put him on the 53 just to protect him.

Questions and Options.

Questions:
1. I wonder what's going on in the Battle between David Johnson and Sean McHugh. One option is to take neither. It would not hurt the team much. Since the Steelers are planning on using FBs this year instead of H-backs they really don't 100% NEED 3 TEs...especially with keeping 6 WR. They could develop some rookie TE on the practice squad. Cutting both McHugh and DJ would also allow them to keep Legursky...who can also play FB (and center and guard).
2. I wonder whether is should send Dwyer to the PS and risk him being claimed off wavers
3. I wonder whether Summers should make the team.

my guess is he'll be cut no later than next monday,

Aug. 31: Roster cutdown to maximum of 75 players. (tue)

That's ridiculous. If they decide to cut him (which seems likely) they will cut him at final cuts so they can attempt to put him on the PS. Teams will have fought so hard to get down to 53 that they may not feel like telling a guy he's made it only to change their minds a few hours later...yet still he may not clear wavers.

If he is cut next week, he most certainly will not clear wavers. He's been injured too often to be considered a bust.

I can come up with 20 players to cut before Dwyer so making the cut of 5 will be a piece of cake. I can guarantee you that the cut of 5 will come from one of the 21 players listed below. Notice you will not see Dwyer. In addition I put in bold cuts that will not likely occur next week

How the hell does one format these lists? Someone should work on drag-n-drop for PDFs and images for just this sort of thing.

I'm not sure I can make it work. I'm cutting Batch, Logan, Legursky, Sunny Harris and Randle El, and it still looks odd...

Your list is too hard to read. I couldn't even follow it. You should copy and paste my list which is done by position and easier to follow then make the necessary changes.
