Default Re: Final Roster - The 53 Men

Surprised we've only kept 3 OLBs. This stops the possibility of Harrison moving to ILB this season. We should have signed Roper (with Frazier on PS if no-one else takes him) to allow some flexibility at LB. They must be confident in Boo's ability to play inside if there's an injury . . .
And if Harrison goes down, we're in big trouble . . . at OLB

We either need one of Roper or Frazier to jump in off PS. And in the longer term, replacement 3-4 OLBs are just not out there . . . it takes 3 years usually for a rookie DE to make the switch to OLB. We should have kept another one to be able to develop someone for the future.

At least Zo (who knows the system) will probably be available if all else fails!!! Hope we don't get to that point . . .

Can anyone else see another way around this problem?

I'm not too disappointed about the freddy g release... but if they dont sign him to the squad then there's something going on.

I dont think mays is such a bad wr... as bad as everyone thinks he is atleast. :)

I've got to agree . . . Mays isn't that bad a wr at all (especially as a 4th WR). . . part of the problem is that since we were all so excited that we may have got a steal in Gibson in Round 4 (based on opinions of a few draft "experts") and that he is 6'4, it seems outrageous the team have let him go. I've probably been comparing Mays against an idealised view of what Gibson is now and in the future . . . I haven't been watching them practice or gotten an inside view like the coaching staff do of his attitude to the game . . .

I wonder if the officials had ruled his trapped 18 yd catch against Carolina as good, whether Freddy would have made the team . . .

This is horrible, we'd better get Frazier and Gibson on the PS.

We were all rooting for 6 WR's but this is NOT what we wanted...
It actually wasnt mine. I got it from all the speculation going on.

My roster would have included Gibson

I hope a rival team doesnt pick up Brian St.Pierre because of his knowledge of our playbook.

Just because a guy is a fourth round pick.. doesn't guarantee him a spot on the roster. If he doesn?t produce in camp and in the pre-season, what choice does the organization have? Besides.. Nate Washington has a 39 inch vertical leap. I am also glad we kept Noah Herron.. I like that kid.

I'd rather see Nate as our 4th reciever, before Morey even thinks about stepping on the field!
