Casillas, McBride
 
Are these two wasted roster spots? McBride is for sure. We'd have been better off keeping Jeff Charleston. How many games has McBride missed since we signed him. I like Casillas. He works hard and is our most athletic LB. Problem is he isn't built for the position. He's too skinny and is also hurt more often than not.

Casillas hurt his finger scrolling whilst reading your post, IR is a strong possibility for him now

Mcbride should be gone, just like sed ellis

Cant agree any more than what both of you just said.

McBride plays well when he's healthy. Its the healthy part giving him problems.

Casillas doesn't look any better than last year or the year before. The only reason he's on the team is because our other LB's are no better.

Can he play Strong Safety? Joey Browner was a big SS and didn't have too bad a career...

Why would you want to move him to one of our strongest positions? We have a pro-bowl SS.

Would you want to slim down Cam Jordan and move him to MLB?

Need more talent on the D-line. Spags D relies on getting pressure with the front four. Last year we couldnt get pressure with our front 7, so how the hell it was suppose to work this year. Complete defensive overhaul next year and get a burner at WR. Losing RM hurt more then I thought it would.

If Colston was healthy and Drew had a little time to throw, it wouldn't seem as bad.

True, and Colston's been hurt, Devery was hurt, and AA went to IR.

That 3 of our top 4 WR's entering the season. If they had been healthy all season, the loss of Meachem wouldn't look as significant.

Also, we lead the NFL in drops. Losing Meachem isn't why Colston, Henderson, Graham, and even Moore are dropping passes. When was the last time Moore drop passes? He never dropped passes before.

I think they are losing focus on the fundamental "catch" and thinking ahead to making it into something bigger. When playing from behind, that tends to happen.

Definately not an excuse, but it wouldn't be the first time.
