    Poteat and Roach gone - that hurts our representation on the "High Times All Star Team".
    Oh well.

    Poteat getting cut on the first cutdown is an annual tradition.

    Of course, it's also a tradition that he returns at some point in the season.

    #22 Jersey

    Sullivan's still here.

    We'll be well represented.

    LOL!
    So, does this mean we're at 75?
    I thought we needed to make like 10 cuts today?
    Are more coming later?

    Well, I was pretty close:

    My predictions made 8/21:

    ...

    Assuming the Pats have to make 14 cuts from 89 to 75:

    NFLE WR Zuriel Smith, RB Earl Charles, and S Ray Ventrone placed on Reserve/NFLE injury list. (-3)

    LS Jon Condo released (-1)

    QB Todd Mortensen released (-1)

    WR Erik Davis released (-1)

    OL Brian Barthelmes released (-1)

    OL Nick Steitz released (-1)

    WR Keron Henry released (-1)

    TE Chris Luzar released (-1)

    DL Eddie Freeman released (-1)

    OL Randy Hand released (-1)

    CB Antwain Spann released (-1)

    CB Vernell Brown released (-1)


    X Rich Musinski released

    X Freddie Roach released

    X Hank Poteat released

    X Martin Gramatica released

    X Brandon Gorin traded



    I thought veterans like Hank or Martin would be cut, but I didn't actually predict them. :(

    I'm sure the guys that I predicted to get cut but didn't will (greyed out) get the axe Saturday.

    Sucks to see him cut, but hopefully we can break that tradition this year. Because if he comes back that means we have guys dropping like flies in the secondary....AGAIN.

    My sleeper is gone too, that sucks. I was hoping Roach would step up.

    Roach might clear waivers and go to p.s.

    Disable Jersey

    It's not beyond BB to cut a guy he likes but can't justify being a 53 early, pretending that he has no interest in him only to pick him up later for the PS

    The practice squad can't be established until noon on Sunday, so we'll have to see if he gets that far.

    Week 11 of the 2006 Season: "...starting and making his return at cornerback on the left side for New England is Hank Poteat..."

    Poteat knows the drill by now...

    BB: "Hank, you're cut."

    Hank: "Ok, coach. Just leave my stuff in my locker like the last 6 times?"

    BB: "Yup."

    Hank: "Cool. See you in a couple of weeks."

    What?!?!?!?!?!?!?

    WR Rich Musinski AND WR Keron Henry?!?!?!?!?

    Now we're really screwed at wideout!

    Where the he!! is Tony Gaiter when you need him?

    Also, whatever happened to Tony Simmons?

    Is he out of football?

    God I hope not. That would mean we would have a hell of alot of injured corners.

    Since Roach is hurt and unable to play, this is understandable. I would say he still makes the PS.
