Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

Tommylee dropped that many passes? Were these passes from Drew or also-rans?!?

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

Really like Bighill and his story, but 'let's face it, he looked great against the 3's, not so much against the Ravens 1's...

Anthony was much improved until his injury which is what we now know is a high-ankle sprain and those take four-six weeks to recover, minimum...

And consider this, we have Mike Nolan now, not Joe Vitt; Nolan I'm sure had considerable input into the decision to retain Anthony...

Mike Nolan has a great reputation for coaching defenses, linebackers and Anthony is there because he was one of the six best...

I'm not holding my breath on Anthony and his development in black and gold. Let's just hope he gets it done when playing alongside a cerebral LB (see Teo & Klein). What will be will be.

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

So our O-Line looks like this:

LT- Ryan Ramczyk, Terron Armstead (Injured)
LG- Andrus Peat
C- Max Unger, Josh LeRibeus
RG- Larry Warford, Senio Kelemete
RT- Zach Strief

Think we're putting in a couple of waiver claims for O-Linemen? We'll be in better shape when Armstead gets healthy but right now we don't have a single back-up tackle.

Very flexible unit as Peat can kick outside and Kelemete is ready-six (first reserve option)...

Have no problem going with eight as Payton's normal modus operandi for during his tenure...

Bright Side is injuries to Unger and Armstead must be ~85% recovered to use those roster spots now...

Also means we still have our two IR, return options available to us to start the season...

LeRibeus is the only guy that probably should be staying with Friends & Family or using AirBNB...

Only unknown is Warford who's not seen live bullets, otherwise this is a great unit...
