good list taztroy. while humes and jacobs have potential they really havent earned a roster spot. someone like morey or iwouma could impact a game at any time. jacobs and humes would be lucky to dress let alone see any playing time. if they did play it seems like they might just turn the ball over and hurt the team, at this point.

Yea, while I rooted for us to draft Humes, I don't mind at all seeing Kuhn take his spot. I mean, the guy can play FB or RB, and he's shown some promise. And, you've gotta love a Local guy. The only real shake-ups I did were that I cut Kriewaldt, just because Seigler shows so much promise, and both he and Wallace can play either LB spot. And I cut Kirschke because Bailey's been doing very well this preseason. The one that's really up in the air is Nua or Harris... I don't know whats gonna happen there...

Good work man on da list. I wouldn't be cutting Kriewaldt yet though. And Bailey v. Kirschke is a great call too.

The thing about preseason is that the unknowable to us are how the assignments work as planned.

Excellent call on two QB's going forward. And what impresses me about Kuhn is his footwork and the quickness to the line. Funny about Humes because I absolutely didn't like him at Va Tech and still don't. But to his credit he played well and HELD his blocks. Maybe there is more there.

Humes did make a great block to pick up blitz and made some nice runs after the catch...

Kuhn could be Merril's ghost....pretty good looking runs last night. I dont think they will keep Omar or Boyd. Cowher looked disgusted after the interception last night and they only gave Omar a few snaps. With Duce playing so poorly they may have to only keep two QBs. Later they can bring in some older guy if Ben goes down. If that happens they are screwed any way.

I dont think they will cut Kre. Lorello has definetly played well this pre-season.
