Yup, was pissed we let him walk. I liked both him and Morris. We got played on this one IMHO. But then again, time will tell but I was a huge advocate for keeping him on the 53 after watching him this pre season. Maybe we should just "trust the coaches b/c they know way more than us." LOL
Even though they do by a long shot doesn't mean they are always right. Many times us fans have been wrong and they have been right but at times we are right and they are wrong. Still I think they are in a better spot to judge. We don't know these guys off the field and we don't get to see all the practices unfortunately.
Anyways, I think the big reason we didn't keep 6 is because we put extra emphasis on ST this year after what happened last year. A lot of spots took hits because we went with a ST guy. Right now we have like twice as many ST's guys as last year. Also, didn't seem likely we would keep 6 CB and only 4 S although I would have been fine with Spillman and Dahl since they can back up both spots. Don't think we had room for 11 either. Ventrone seems to be Seely's guy and Lee's favorite personal punt protector so I guess he stayed. I don't know if he's worth 880k though. I guess we can't have it both ways... not enough ST emphasis, too much ST emphasis.....
This is a little perspective. We all know the reason that Marcus Cooper isn't on the team now. He wasn't going to make the 53-man with us already having 5 corners. We did have the foresight to plan beyond 2013 and were going to put him on our practice squad, but KC plucked him. They had room and we didn't. However, it is just one game. We need to get used to the fact that we will draft talented guys and all of them won't stick.
