I don't get your point, sorry.

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

We have no depth whatsoever on the O-Line now. We've gotta be hitting the waiver wire really hard.

There are some veterans out there who might have something left in the tank, like Winston and Zuttah.

SS T.J. Ward?

The saints with a modern day SS to counter the pass happy NFL would be a dream come true.

TJ would help Williams out in his rookie year.

I would fall out my chair if the saints actually got a true all around SS.

Much like Steve Gleason, Chris Reis, Fred McAffee etc...

And a NFL franchise in the Northwest has been an NFC contender ever since that utter embarrassment on national tv...

Cadet cut, likely to be claimed by the Jets

Re: Roster Cutdown Mega-Thread

You know, I don't get the hate by some fans on Cadet; we all knew he wasn't a 20+ carries a game guy...

But he's was always available, very reliable hands, knew his assignments, and rarely missed a block...

That catch he made on the sideline against the Ravens, even some of the best RBs don't keep that drive alive with that catch...

He's like a baseball utility player...
He isn't really great at anything, but pretty good at several things.

Yep, that's the right analogy - won't overwhelm the stat book, but team players that contribute like the play I mentioned...

...and those guys are the difference makers - Patriots don't win any of those early titles without Kevin Faulk...
