Only players who were not on the active roster -- Smith was cut to make room for DT Derek Walker -- at the end of the season are eligible. Which is to say, players who get future contracts usually are prospective practice squadders and "camp bodies."

So...Vernon's drop in the endzone didn't cost us that game?

I was thinking Gore's fumble in the red zone.
Too many close calls to count so I wouldn't blame missing the play-offs on any one person. The whole team and coaching staff played a part, especially in the last Seattle game. What a lot of people fail to realize though, is that even had we one against Seattle, we still would not have made the play-offs. We would have had to beat Philly as well to qualify. Oh well, hope we see a better team this season.
IMO, the fumbled reverse punt is what cost us that game. The Seadicks were limp and lifeless until that turnover. One more score by us in that first half and we could've buried them in that game...
Even if we won that game, we wouldn't have made the playoffs. 9-7 wouldn't have gotten us in.

You're right... There's no way we would have missed the playoffs if it wasn't for that play. It couldn't have been the last play of the game in against the Vikings, or the entire game against the Falcons. Or the fact that we lost to the Texans, Colts, Titans, Packers, and Eagles. It was just that one game, one play. Nothing else. And obviously it has nothing to do with the fact that even if we would have won that game we would have been 9-7 while the Cardinals were 10-6.
LOL! Smith didn't cost us the game!

Gore's fumble and the fumbled punt return cost us the game. That was at least 10 points off the board.
hahahaha calm down, tiger.

teams typically have around 70 something players for the offseason.. and then they slowly start to cut them, one by one.. he seems like a player that is signed for the offseason, but will be gone pretty fast.

We go through this every season, and no one seems to get it.

We'll sign somebody for camp, and everybody will freak out and say, "OMG! Who is this scrub? We should be going after Peppers and McNabb!! Good job McClueless!!"
You should concern yourself to the last 2 words of Barrows piece that you posted. That is all.

+1
Sure he got beat in the Seattle game, but that one play did not cost us the playoffs. WE didn't make the playoffs because we lost a total of 8 games, not because Keith Smith got beat on one play.

Me too. Don't forget Delanie dropped a TD in that game and Crabtree ducked the ball instead of trying to catch b/c he didn't want to get hit.

okay there is no way u cant admit that was the BIGGEST pass inference on Delanie
so dont even bring him up in this thread.
