Surprised that Morris Hawkins Cooper were waived while Tukuafu, J-E, Looney, stayed. Morris and Hawkins will be claimed. Isn't the idea to waive people who won't get attention. Not sure why Celek made it. I see him getting zero time if Davis and McDonald stay healthy.

Why do we cut elite speed and some ball in the air playmaking for mediocre size up front? Don't get that. Did we cut the most reliable long snapper in the league for 500K? That's bubkes.

We can't just take the best 53 reguardless of position. We need to have as legitimate backups as possible in as many positions as possible. You wonder why we kept Celek? In an offense where we use 2 TEs 50% of the time you need to have at least 3 on the roster. Why Tukuafu and TJE? Again in a defense that uses smith and McDonald on every play you should at least have 1 backup if not 2.

Hawkins, an NFL veteran is going to end up on the practice squad? Not sure if serious.

He's not eligible? Sorry, wasn't aware.

Yep, not to mention Dobbs is suspended week 1. Can't go into a game with 4 DL. I know they say it's best 53 but let's be honest ST and positions factor into the decisions. So does money or Jennings would have won. Example some team might have 7 WRs worthy of a roster spot but only 3 safeties. Does the team carry 7 WRs, 3 S's? No.... Some guys that got cut outplayed guys that made the team. Just the way it works.

I don't think players who are in the league 4 or more years are eligible but not sure on that. Don't feel bad NFL is full of complicated rules. The practice squad is for developing young players. Think Hawkins is going on his 6th year.

I was hoping Stupar would make it. Everyone wrote him off but he looked great against KC and had solid games against the Vikes and Chargers. I'm a little surprised by the Tukuafu. He lacks in pass rushing but he's good at keeping off the block. He was much better than Dobbs who a far as I could tell was more explosive but would get lost in the blocks.
I hope cutting Jennings doesn't backfire. He was automatic.

Yeah Stupar first game played bad but the rest of the games played really well. Especially the KC game. I think he earned a spot just didn't think we would keep 5 ILBs. He might still get cut if we would sign Marecic or when Dobbs comes back .

Marvin, I just don't feel our depth on the offensive line is very good. Looney especially doesn't do anything for me. So we differ. That's okay.
The front office should be examining the waiver for any tackle. Snyder can't play tackle except at the worst possible level. If A. Davis or Staley gets hurt then Boone will have to move over and someone will replace, making the Niners weaker at two positions.

He let Omameh hide in his locker.

That is a good one. I can imagine Omameh hiding in the whirl pool tub with a snorkel. Can't cut me if they can't find me. Probably why it took so long and he was one of the later ones.
I really wanted Cooper to make it as well. Hope he's back on the PS.
I didn't say Gore would be cut or even that I want him to be, just that there is absolutely no guarantee he makes it 2 more years with the 49ers. Look at LaDanian ... he turned 30 got 730 yards and a 3.3 ypc average and the next year he was gone. The year before I'm sure people were saying "No way they cut LT man, NO WAY" ... and then ... they did. LT is a hall of fame back who hadn't had 2 ACL tears and he fell apart at 30, and yes he had more carries than Frank, but Franks body isn't young. Assuming Frank isn't going to regress is NOT the way to bet.
