Cobbs has had a nice preseason racking up some yardage with the run and catching out of the backfield.

Yours truly suggested something like this should happen, though i'd have preferred a LBer to a draft pick.

Staley to be cut?

NM
i read that post yeasterday. good call. you seem much more confident in the steelers drafting linebackers than what the patriots do with that additional pick. steelers will be cutting one probably. if not there is alanzo jackson (maybe) and jason gildon sitting by theior phones.

word is duce will not be cut. last year the steelers carried 4 rb's and a fb. this year it looks like it may be willie, verron, duce, cobbs, with the humigator and possibly kuhn on the practice squad.

as popular as cornholing is in cincinatti, i figured cobbs would be a "better fit" with the bengals.
