Alright here is my look at the roster after the Patriots game.
QB - In:Stafford, Hill, Stanton
No shock here, I am hoping we can trade Robinson but it seems highly unlikely. Also I think the FO should see if there is any intrest in Hill/Stanton and try to trade one of them. To me it doesn't matter which one but If we can get a 4th for one of them thats a solid trade.
RB - In:Best,Brown,Harrison,Morris, Mikel Leshoure(IR, Doesn't count against the 53 man roster)
Now this is arguably the hardest position to predict but one thing is for sure, Aaron Brown will make the team. His play last night and throughout the entire preseason keeps saying one thing, that hes good enough to make it. Harrison makes it cause he's better than the rest of the RB's but no other reason. Morris makes it cause I think that Johnson hasn't proved anything and Bells sickness last night effectivly kicked him of the team. Morris also played good last year so I think he makes it.
FB - In: None
Felton and Clapp don't make it because neither are good FB's also Will Heller is a fine FB so were fine here.
No shock here really D-Will did play good the last game but unless he has a stellar game 4 he won't make it. Toone also played good but he never really had a shot. Stovall makes it cause he can catch and is 6'5"
Once again no shock here.
Out: Kirk Chambers
Ok, Calm down and let me explain. First of all i think that Culbreath has played very good so far and should make the team had it not been for the number of roster spots available. Secondly, with Fox out for a while with injury it would be good to have a guy like Culbreath on in case of anymore injurys.
G- In: Rob Sims, Steven Peterman
Out: Donald Thomas
Due to Culbreath making the team there is no room for Thomas. Both Hilliard and Culbreath have looked good at guard so we should have no problem.
I would like a versitile guy like Rudy to make it but he hasn't shown enough, we stick with Gandy for our #2 and we'll be alright here.
No shock here, Fluellen can play both DT/DE so he makes it as well.
Same as above no shock here
LB - In: Levy, Durant, Tulluch, Doug Hogue, Carpenter, Ashley Palmer
Alright heres my explanation for doing this, first of all I wanted to add another CB so I needed to clear up a spot from the LBs, more on that later. Second of all I feel that Eke is a pure ST and we already have a bunch of those.
Due to injurys its always good to have 6 CB's. We saw that last year. Also Berry is still very inexperianced and that could hurt us in the long run.
While I would want to put Silva ahead of either Coleman or Wendling I just couldn't do it. Coleman is experianced and Wendling was a Pro Bowler.
LS- Don Mulbach
As much as I want to cut him I realize he does his job good and will make the team
Thanks guys tell me what you think!
