A little shocked that J. J. got the ax, but I'm not against Tolzien as the #3. I thought J.J played better overall. I still think we should have just kept two. I honestly don't think we need 3.
I am not that surprised that Dixon beat out Rock. I actually wanted this to happen. Dixon really proved his worth during preseason and just worked his ass off.
Ted Ginn Jr.
(in that order)
I admit, I had Ginn getting axed. I just think, while he is an extremely dangerous return guy, his overall value as a football player is very limited. Plus, half the season he's not even available. And I still see A.J. as a starter, at least by the bye week. Skill-set wise he brings more to the field than any WR on our roster. I really thought Owusu or Palmer had a shot at making the 53. I hope Palmer isn't signed away from our PS. I think one of the few holes on this team will be our PS. Our waived players are gonna get raided.
No surprise to me that we keep only 8. I figured the line is one position we'd gamble a little because of the depth. We can move Boone around in a pinch. But if Boone goes down we are gonna have trouble, unless JH & Co. have another switch in mind for someone. However, I did think that Leonard Davis would be cut, just too old and slow for my taste. I thought that Mike Person would squeak by him.
Didn't see us keeping three official
TE's because Dobbs showed he can play the spot. Celek making it tells me a lttle about how the TE's might be used. All three are very good pass catchers and versatile. Those 3 on the field at once is gonna keep a lot of linebackers and DC's up for long nights.
Ricky Jean Francois
* Demarcus Dobbs (also TE)
Not much of a surprise here, though I had us cutting Ian Williams. Not sure he'll dress for games though.
shocked that we're keeping only three OLB's. I think this is a major gamble. And I hope it don't come back to bite us.
No surprise here.
This is perhaps one of the leagues most talented safety groups. I hoped that we find a way to keep Michael Thomas on the 53 and I prey he isn't snatched off the PS.
Nothing to see here.
Man, I really hope we can keep Michael Thomas, Nathan Palmer, and Kenny Wiggins on our PS.
LB Darius Fleming
RB Jewel Hampton
OK, I was wrong on some things but right on most. Overall, still a SB roster.
