I would get rid of Barlow and Coke. Gary Russell and William Gay are upgrades.

On this initial cut..there will be a lot of non-names ....but we might see Barr...Barlow...and McBean on the list.

In terms of young vets on the chopping block, Trai Essex is playing for a roster spot the next two weeks; what is scary is that if Essex does not show some skills as a backup LT, the logical backup if Marvel Smith gets hurt is shifting Faneca to LT since Starks clearly does not have the quicks to play LT (or for that matter RT, but that is another depressing topic for another thread)

Oh, I forgot about Mike Barr. Yeah, I would cut him, that kid's good, he could be a punter on many teams

I never heard this. Is there a book or something I could check?

I agree... good point. I think that Gary Russel has looked pretty darn good, but I also think that maybe Davis might be a better fit for us at RB.

Interesting nugget from Ed.B. of the P-G


Could Max Starks lose not only his starting job but his roster spot as well? I don't think so, but there's a chance Starks won't dress for games if it's determined that Trai Essex can handle the backup role at left tackle.

Essex also has practiced at guard. So, gamedays could look like this: Marvel Smith, Alan Faneca, Sean Mahan, Kendall Simmons, Willie Colon as the starters. The two backups: Essex (covering tackle and guard) and Chukky Okobi (covering center) or Chris Kemoeatu (covering guard with Simmons moving to center if something happened to Mahan).

In fact, it looks right now as if Starks either will keep his job at right tackle or not dress for games
.

Did Essex start at LT and, if so, how did he look?
