Well, this is the final game before the 1st cut-downs. The Patriots stand at like 84-85 players. That means they need to cut 9-10 players (possibly 11-12 if Pass and Branch join the team). Now, in recent years, Belichick has used the 3rd pre-season game to get the starters into form, usually having them go 2-3 qtrs. My guess is that we will see the 9-12 guys who are on the bubble of being cut in the 1st cut downs the most other than the starters. This is to give BB a good evaluation of them. Who do you think will be the 9-12 players to get the extra reps? Here are my picks: Patrick Cobbs, LeKevin Smith, Jonathan Sullivan, Dan Klecko, Eric Alexander, Keron Henry, Antoine Spann, Corey Mays, Pierre Woods, Santonio Thomas, Erik Davis, Vernell Brown, Brian Barthelmes, and Freddie Roach. (OK, so I listed 14) I think that Klecko could get cut to allow him to hook on with another team. I didn't mention Matt Shelton, Ray Ventrone, and Earl Charles because I don't know their status. I thought that Shelton was already IRed. And I think that Ventrone and Charles are on a special NFLE Injured list that doesn't have them count against the active roster. Ventrone, Hill, and Charles are all candidates for the IR and that could make BB's job easier in terms of the cut-downs.
