all those guys sound like good candidates to get the axe. heres a good article that shows what the remaining 53 man roster may look like: http://www.pittsburghlive.com/x/pitt.../s_449154.html

unfortunatley for those probably 60-80, they are fighting for a practice squad spot. the top 53 seems pretty much etched in stone.

I don't see Rod Rutherford & Cedric Humes making the final roster, but they won't get cut until after Training Camp....

if humes doesnt take bettis' spot who will? (unless duckett is a cap casualty and the steelers pick him up). humes will get snagged off the practice squad before too long if he doesnt make the team.

People passed on Humes for a reason. We got him in the 7th round....I just don't see a 7th round RB replacing Bettis.

Not so much cuts, but I think Ben Roethlisberger, Troy Polamalu, and Joey Porter will all be traded by the trading deadline for 4 AA minor leaguers, and a player to be named later....

Wait...wrong sport, that is the Pirates who do that stupid shit. My bad.

I have to agree that Humes will probably get the ax...Even if the oft-injured Staley gets an infected in-grown hair...Verron is still a better option at power-back.
Using Parker as a bench mark isnt probably fair...Parker was in a system that didnt allow him to play. Only those people who knew about his pre-college potential were willing to give him a chance.
Humes WAS given a chance in college. He lasted until the seventh round because he was only semi-productive. Riggs....Tahu...Humes...all the same back.
You just have to roll the dice and see if the seventh round picks have some spark that may someday resemble a Pro-Player if fanned correctly.
