Do we have to cut him again and have him clear waivers before he goes back?
That blows...Really havent' been a fan of Rossum this season. He used to get it and go last year....this year seems like he's been waiting way too hard for s**t to develop. And he's dancing back there with negative yardage.

Absolutely. The offense needs a ton of change up, MS has to see this, doesn't he? What can-will he do to influence Raye to call a more diverse game??
I swear all this team appears to need is about 35% more diversity in play to really push it over the top. Roman, what can you say; he gets a sack, then he proves once more to be one the DB biggest liabilities. Is was a killer play though, unfortunately.
Sheets will start the "change=up process. Imagine if we would have made those big guys up front start running side to sdie, and then have to cut back to cover our dreaded; up the gut runs..

Let him rest till after the bye. No need to push his recovery when we're playing the Rams and then hopefully Raye will open up the playbook and use Sheets on screens and tosses, etc. We did pretty damn good against the Vikings stout defense today and I think the Falcons will be somewhat easier to run on -- hopefully run that is set up through some spreading of defenses and passing that will begin to be utilized in the Rams game.
If he does get called up from the PS he probably won't see much action, in that he would be behind Coffee and Robinson. However, that said he might be useful on some screens etc with his pace ala Sproles.
Its a shame that Clayton was injured pre-season he might just have got a long awaited chance.
