    I like it. No use carrying a 3rd TE just to have one. Im sure the revoving door will be at that position all year.

    Young LB's (Redd, Guyton) really step up and force their way on the team.

    It wouldn't surprise me to see a bit of shuffling - maybe at CB, brining in a cut from another team. If there's anyone at TE available they could get a look as well - and I'd still maintain that even with Gutierrez "extensive experience" in the NFL, I'm not sure his performance justifies keeping him.

    If someone wants to suggest an actual experienced veteran QB to give us three QBs I'd be open to that, however aside from that I'd go with 2.

    Good list. Lots of young players for the future.

    If I am correct we had 9 draft picks this year - 7 might make the final cut? - Thats pretty good...I think

    I think Aiken would be great to keep for special teams but am unsure of his physical status. I agree that Ventrone seems to make things happen out there and would love to see him on this team, especially since he's one of those guys who could play defensive back in a pinch- just don't know where unless Aiken goes to IR as previously stated.

    I like the idea of keeping Guyton; he's an interesting player with a lot of upside and great speed who should make some key special teams contributions this year.

    How much value does Eric Alexander have to this team? I've seen him make some nice special teams plays (so that's probably my answer) but am not overly impressed with his LB play.

    I also like the idea of getting rid of Cassel and keeping the other two QB's; he's got too much of that deer in the headlights thing going on to be successful if called upon.

    After giving a positive review of this roster, BB will probably cut the

    young linebackers and bring back Monte Beisel and Chad Brown.

    7 actually, 6 make it with Ruud the odd-man out. Still pretty good.

    CB's are s-c-a-r-y....Hobbs/Bryant/ 2 rooks and a 2nd year IR'd guy.

    Look for an add on right there with a cut vet or FA, Ty Law??

    Ruud can go to IR based on the way he left the giants game.

    That is a good list of players. However I do expect then to pick up a player or 2 once the cut have been made by other teams. Look fro that to be in the OL and/or a backup QB.

    I find it hard to believe that BB would start Cassell in all 4 preseason games and then cut him. And it baffles me how an NFL roster can only have 2 TEs. Keeping 5 RBs tells me that running the ball will be a priority...but the lack of TEs doesn't mesh.

    If you kept two QB's as Gasper suggests in his column today one can't be O'Connell because he's way too raw as a pro or in this system and saw little time in pre season. And he won't make the PS. Gutz is eligible (which the media never mentions) and likely would, The tortured logic the media is applying to this situation leads me to believe Cassel kicked their collective puppy... I know they are by and large lemmings who follow the leader, but this lock step dismissal of Cassel out of hand while totally ignoring the AT LEAST equally disappointing showings by Gutierrez against second and third stringers is nearly comical. Matt must have pranked them and let the air out of some tires or something...not to mention Gutz must have towed them all to the shop gratis...

    Our depth at tackle is very shaky. This is the top priority in next year's draft. Britt's preseason play does not inspire confidence.

    I still would prefer Hobson to Alexander. However, the fact Hobson played so extensively in game 4 suggests he was being given face time on game film to help him get a job elsewhere, an act of charity to a vet. But I want Hobson on this roster.

    He has his limitations, but he's durable and tough and a proven commodity. He will figure out the ILB position over time and become "faster".

    Otherwise this is a roster we can be very proud of. I do hope Redd and Guyton both make it.
