My Final 53 Man Roster, 2005 version1
 
53 man roster looks set, barring some pre-season surprises or injuries.
25 Defense
25 Offense
3 Special Teams

DEFENSE
DE (4) Howard, Grant, Smith, Bryant,
DT (5) Young, Leisle, Whitehead, Sullivan, Jefferson
LB (7) Watson, Fincher, Bockwoldt, Allen, Hodge, McKinnon, Grant (Fisher if Grant gets hurt again)
CB (4) McKenzie, Brown, Craft, Thomas
S (5) Smith, Bellamy, Bullocks, Mitchell, Gleason

Fisher may replace Hodge if he looks good enough to play the SAM and is healthy.

OFFENSE
OL (8 ) Bentley, Brown, Mayberry, Holland, Gandy, Jacox, Stinchcomb, Nesbit.
TE (4) Conwell, Hilton, Meier, Williams
WR (6) Horn, Stallworth, Hakim, Henderson, Lewis, Gardner
RB (4) McAllister, Stecker, Smith, Karney
QB (3) Brooks, McPherson, (Bouman or Kingsbury)

Special teams:
Carney, Berger, Houser


McAffee: May take a LB spot (Fisher/Grant), or the last TE spot (Williams/Meier). But I doubt it. He finally gets cut.

I think McAfee stays and we lose either Meier or Boo.

Nice list Danno.

Personally, I might give up Nesbit or McKinnon for McAfee. The guy's old but he's still a special teams ace. Houser, McAffee, Gleason, Mitchell, and Lewis should make for a good special teams (Berger too - who is real good. Carney is getting old).

What about TE Hall? Is he finally getting cut? I think it's time. He may be an excellent blocker but we need TEs who can block and catch - even if their blocking isn't as good as his.

I am thinking Gardner maybe gone.

i agree............mcafee, while old has probably won us countless games on special team efforts that goes unrealized..........i would be surprised to say the least that he does'nt make the final cut.........smitty

Nice list.

I've been under the impression that Hall is one of Haz's favorite... but someone has to be the odd man out. Besides Conwell and Hiltion, I think anyone of the 3 leftover could be gone.

With all the praise and improvement Gardner has made during camp, he's probably going to be our 4th receiver... much less being cut.

No way.

Amen. It may be time for Boo to go as well.
Meier won't be able to make an impression what with the knee injury. He may go. Don't sleep on Hilton. He has looked good at camp.

It's hard to imagine Fast Freddy being cut. If only because he is one of my favorite Saints. He's also great with fans . Always upbeat and funny.
I was ecstatic when he was re-signed.

At DT you left off our starter Howard Green. Do you really think so little of him?

ScottyRo 08-05-2005 06:00 PM

Good eyes, SC. I didn't spot him as being missing. So, both Meier and Boo are gone.
